It doesn't matter where anything was said, the point is MOST of the people here can't understand YOU CAN'T expect impossible things! While I was saying how shady it is for it to have only 1 6pin and provide such performance, even though it's 14nm, that it's too cheap to be that good and nothing yet so far has been like this, nobody wanted to believe. Everyone was saying it's gonna be a fantastic card etc. Well maybe it is, but only by power usage. And I don't even know who even cares about 50 watts more or less. Point is reference is going to cost as the G1/Strix versions of GTX970. And let's not make this a US only forum, we aren't that lucky here in Europe to have it for 200$, we're going to get it for at least 250EUR. When you add a custom cooling system, add another 30-40EUR. And right now 970's price is around 250EUR. Good bargain price? Cheap? Don't think so. You can almost get a 980 for that price, and NVidia's prices are dropping pretty much. 970 here lost around 50EUR of worth (new) in the last two months.
Of... and if you use DX12 as an argument, sure, it might be better. But I've been hearing about DX12 for more than 2 years, and since I've bought my last GPU, NOTHING has changed about DX12. It's still just a story.
So people, WHEN things happen and when YOU SEE THEM HAPPENING, then talk about them. Stop thinking "what might be in future" without any arguments.
