Will you be buying a new 9000 series card when they're released?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Just out of interest really.

I will definitely be getting a 9970 (or whatever it will be called) almost immediately. I'm currently running a 7950 and some might call me an idiot for upgrading an already decent card, but I don't care - my money, my choice.

So I was simply wondering if anyone else is waiting for AMD to release their new cards so they can upgrade?

Thanks for your time,

Jim

Each to their own, I say.

Personally, I'll be selling mine for 2 9970's *or whatever theyre called.

I'm actually doing the same thing, with my 7950, haha. Well actually it depends on the performance difference there is, if it's minimal. I might keep my 7950 for a while longer

I'll give it a few week after they're released to check out reviews from Linus/Elric/TTL etc and then decide smile.gif

I'll build a new pc soon and the 9970 (or whatever it will be called) gets me excited. If the price of the new gpu is out of my budget, then I might consider 9950 (or whatever it will be called) or 7970. The same thing goes with the cpu. Just wondering when AMD will release their Steamroller CPUs. 9970 + FX Steamroller would be awesome!

AMD should have a significant improvement. This is the first time that AMD and the former ATI have gone 21 months without refreshing a flagship GPU. hopefully they don't disappoint all the people who have been waiting for so long.

Only if an overclocked 9970 (or whatever it'll be called) beats an overclocked and overvolted 780 classy. Unlikely in my opinion seeing how much OCing potential the classys have but we'll see. I'm guessing the cards will drop with significantly less OCing headroom than the 7900s at 5% less than 780 performance. Just judging from AMD's previous track record.
