Nvidia still did a great job they forced new drivers out of amd.

Thats what I want biggrin.gif Better drivers. Beefier game engines. 28nm.. Where's the progress at !
:cheers:To ATI! (nv!d!@ go tegra :/ )

Hope i won't be cheering to AMD soon in remembrance.. they're taking a bashing!

Not your fault at all. My fault entirely. Me and my oh so many questions.. redface.gif I'll go into silent mode from now on. smile.gif Safer that way.. I'll read more and ask less.

Although, I did wind up w/ the 470, those massive "mid tower case" size boxes of the Asus 68 and 69 series cards @ Fry's were mighty tempting!

2. Seeing that these cards will be non reference, whats 5 euros for ~ an 8% bump ??

UPDATE : Pricing on the 560 : And I expect custom solutions (MSI... blah blah) to retail higher !

Apparently, pre-orders can already be set for the price of 280.33 Euro

Compare this with <200E for the 6850 :/

YEAH,, right .. Budget middle -end ? LOOOL "??? NOT -- and outperforming a 6870 by THAT MUCH ??
Where does the 570GTX stand then ?? Or for that matter, the 480 GTX ??
So we can all agree that GF100 fermi was &**!
And how exactly is a 460 so muc hfaster than a 6870 ??? LOLAX xP

When in doubt or faced with the absolute truth

That man rightly deserves a cult following.

If these cards perform almost equal to a 6950 they're not that impressive, as there really isn't that much difference between the 6950 and 6870. Looking at the price of these things the 560 is competing with the 6950 and not the 6870. If they drop the price to 6870 levels they might be making a loss yet again.

The 470 and 80 are EOL. They've been replaced with the 5xx's, which are cooler, smaller and, thus, better. If you see a good deal on a 470 or 80 I'd snag it up, as they're still excellent cards.

Oh no ofcourse not, Don't care much about benches.. this stuff was in the news smile.gif hence the copy-paste smile.gif

What you say scares me and either the world is getting richer but since when couldn't we afford the lowest model of a product lineup ?? The 560 must be an amazing card by the looks of it , and if it does turn out to be so I'm prolly getting rid of mine before the 560 hits the markets here :O

A month or two without a graphics card ( I do have a trusty 7800GTX to hang onto) would well be worth the wait if I could snag a 6950 for the price and then prolly unclock to a 6970 ?? biggrin.gif

Can I join? This is an old pic with my original terrible cable management. I'll get a more up to date pic when i pack up my case. funny thing is I was getting high temps (yes I redid cable management) and was getting up to 101C a few days ago... then today... I pinch the cooler to the board kinda gently and do my weekly dusting... turned off the computer for 6 hours... and then when I turned it back on... the temps went down to 90 in furmark. Is this just an indication of the s***** job they did with the thermal compound? and should I reapply my own?

I had edited my post but forgot to click the save button.

What will be great about the 560 is is forcing prices down. I am really glad there's real competition this year. Last year the 400's and 5000's didn't drop in price and stayed really high. This year AMD and nVidia are fighting for dominance, which is what we want to see. Of course I won't buy nVidia (I love GFlops and have come to terms with having to stick with this 6870 for another year or two) but I do love it when they release a great card, as it benefits everyone.

Those are some extremely high temperatures, I would definitely change the paste and see what happens. If not I'd RMA the card, as it's only a matter of time before it dies.

Just installed new drivers and so far I dont have stability problems with my physx card installed and games look the same .And to my suprise msi afterburner is now using my fan profile with all of my GPU's nvidia and amd alike(awesome) no matter how many monitors I have installed.I wont be changing my drivers again unless I run into a problem.A slite drop in scores to gain stability is not a problem for me but curiosity has got the best of me. Here's my problem I cant remember what I was getting at stock clocks.

Does 6000 sound right for 6850's xfire in 3dmark 11?
