I sure hope these figures are on the low side.
I'll likely wait for the 28nm cards, hopefully we'll see a true generational performance jump then.
Thats what i was saying...unless these cards can bring some tech that i absolutely need.

a long time ago, like back in may or june, there was an article of an interview on one of nvidia's designers for the revised gf100... they said the 512sp core revision will be out soon (didnt happen) and would cost about $20 more than the gtx480, i cant find the article anymore, it was posted on ocn somewhere ):

anyways, i love conflicts, i wanna see that 6970 shine (:

IMO, price should be $250 x the millions of people who will buy it and you have a Winner.
The Cheaper things are, the better.

Same here unless these card have some crazy OC potential and better temps.

There was an entire review of the 512 SP card you're referring to. Link

GF110's 512 SP will have nothing in common with the above card since it is a completely revised GPU (based on GF100). The full GF110 chip is supposed to have a total of 768 SP. Source

Either way i hope the 6970 isn't too hot.. or else i shall be disappoint
No that's the problem. You guys are forgetting a step. You could say the 5770 is the replacement of the 4770, but until HD6k there were no exact replacements for the 4870 and 4850 with Cypress exceeding $100 over the regular flagship GPUs.

6870 and 6850 are performance cards while 6950 and 6970 will be high end cards. 5770 is midrange/mainstream. $180-$230 can hardly be called midrange (or was 4870 midrange too back then?)

The TDP however was not a rumour by Fud, but was derived from an AMD slide:



I can't tell how AMD is going to cram 2x Cayman into an Antilles board, but I do know that 2x 6870 is already pushing the 300W spec. They'll find a solution for it though. What we do know is that the 6970 will have a 6 and 8 pin power connector and the 6950 will have 2x 6 pin connectors.

Yeah, the GTX 580 a nice addition to the list but far from special really. Well, I don't have any money left though. Besides now I'm forced to save up for a 'smart investment' by getting either Bulldozer or Sandy Bridge

My Q9550 780i setup is getting boring after 2 years ......

See here:

Unfortunately, according to these benchmarks, the GTX 580 will end up slower than AMD's previous-gen Radeon HD 5970, on average, let alone AMD's upcoming flagship - Antilles / Radeon HD 6990. GTX 580 against Cayman / Radeon HD 6950/70 is the real battle here.
Can't say I'm really surprised but it's not disappointing either. When it comes to dual-GPU cards, they tend to compete in their own classes. NVIDIA doesn't currently have an answer for it.

This is going to be one hell of a battle between the presumed 6970 and 580.
Guess i wait until both are out, weight out the benchmarks and get something that appeals to me the most.
