What's an 'industry rep'.

I'm going to treat those comments as 4chan trolls without further official confirmation.

I came from 7970s CF to a 780 (2nd one coming soon) so its not the performance (nor the stutter since I didn't face it much).

Its reading about it and waiting for the official specs, then the leaked benchmarks/photos, then the official benchmarks, by then I'll be hooked.

That's what happened when the Titan was released, but I couldn't afford it, so once the 780 came out I got it, even though I really didn't need it at all....

So knowing myself, if the 9970 beats a 780, I'll need to get it, even though I'll probably have two 780s by then...........can't really explain why.

I approve of this. thumb.gif

Myself, as soon as my GPU become second choice on the menu to update drivers, I go boinks.

Guess you should go to one of the mods we have plenty of artisyans (or whatever they call them) so named hardware reps so I wouldn't know why there can't be Database reps right wink.gif

I wouldn't trust anyone saying they know someone who knows the true specs of the new boards coming out since not even the board partners know yet, amd is simply not ready to send samples in yet

I'm sort of in the same situation. I'm not that much of a gamer but computing is my life. Without it, I don't know where I would be. It's all that I have left and it's something I actually enjoy.

The best Nvidia can do is create a really big ARM or MIPS CPU. I don't see Nvidia worrying too much about this now, not when they've gutted GPGPU from Kepler in the name of power consumption. Nvidia seems to be stepping away from GPGPU and AMD seems to be embracing it.

I just wonder how long these generations are going to last. We're going to have a tweaked Tahiti going against rebranded and clock bumped Keplers (kind of like FX Centurions). It's more than likely not going to be a good time for Nvidia.

If GK110 is about 550mm^2 and AMD can sit between GTX 780 and Titan in performance while having a die size less than 400mm^2, Nvidia is going to get absolutely mauled in price to performance. There simply won't be any way for Nvidia to compete, at all. Tahiti is 365mm^2.

AMD has a huge chance to dominate if the 9970 GPU is under 450mm^2. I'd imagine 9970 falling between GTX 780 and Titan like everyone is suggesting, but based on die size I'd expect it to fall between GTX 770 and GTX 780 in pricing, leaning more towards GTX 770 pricing as AMD wants more market share instead of profits (at least judging their past behaviors).

AMD just needs to get their CPUs in order now to stop the embarrassment of their graphic products running better on their competitors CPUs as opposed to AMD CPUs.

The problem is single core optimization, not their CPU's, that will all change when the 8 core optimized games start coming.

Anyone got any rough ideas how much the 9970 is gonna cost? Im hoping its around £350 mark, but knowing my luck it will probably just be like £600 to price it just above the 780 if it performs bit better than it.

It will be cheaper than an Classified 780 is it performs on par with it.
I think 500 pounds max or 600 euro max likely to be lower.

£500 is too much for an AMD gpu. The only way they can price thier gpus at or above 500 pounds is if its dual gpu like the 7990.

All thier other gpus have been like 300/400 max for reference ones.

I am having a hard time telling if you are serious.
