come on AMD, we need GPU numerical puns each gen. How else would we advance? (partial sarcasm)
to me it sounds like you will have 2 spare you might give away
He's mining cryptocoins with risers, not using them for games. He can fit 6 GPUs...

HD 6000 series was underwhelming ( a tweak rather than new process node), kind of like the GTX 770 and GTX 760
Other than memory size and slightly faster memory, Cayman didn't bring anything drastic (two graphics engines didn't seem to do that much for performance). Powertune and GPU Boost are gimmicky.
HD 7000 series is the first real AMD breakthrough in a while as far as TDP goes. GCN is a beast in performance per watt AND COMPUTE even at the lower end.
Kepler is proof when you gimp compute that performance per watt will drastically be better. That's why I have great respect for AMD's GCN.Edited by AlphaC - 7/2/13 at 7:13am
