He never said anything of the sort, you assume that. All he said was if you had a 980 or 390x sell it not before the value plummets. right now 980s still go on ebay for 350ish bid, with time still left. The more information is leaked, slowly that will drop. Not as fast as OCN market, because Im sure alot of Ebay users arent in the loop. But there will be a point when they aren't even worth $250.
Again, If I personally could stand to sell my current card for MORE then what the card releasing in 2 weeks with similar performance, and stand to gain more Vram and long run better performance and driver support. I definitely would. sadly my 7950 is way past that point.
