Question about the HD 7000 cards

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I know it is too soon to tell, but in the article that was posted it said

Quote:
available evidence seems to point out to an early Q3 launch, as the graphics cores are expected to enter mass production in May.
How long until the first few cards start rolling out based on previous gen of cards? and it takes about a year or so for the top dog cards to come out right?

Reason I ask is well,

Temp job

Have the money now

If I dont use it, it will go away on gas money and such.(way it works in my family, if you have money buy your own crap if not we will help you.)

School will take a lot too .


Anyways, I was originally planning on getting the 6990 and prob a 6970. Not so sure now, So if anyone has a good prediction on timeline from previous releases please post your opinions.

I dont know, but Im leaning more towards the 69** cards atm. Their performances is really great, and the Xfire scaling is superb compared to last gens. I guess that kinda of gives me my answer I suppose.

Im in the same perdicament as you. I currently have 2x6850s running eyefinity @ 4800x900. Its just not enough power for me personally, I was planning on purchasing 2x6970s recently but then I heard of the 7000 series coming out. Though the 6970s are great they would yeild me to purchasing a new power supply. Since I water cool everything I'd buy 2 f/c blocks. So to get 2 6970s + new psu + f/c water blocks = around $1150.

Now if the new HD7000 series which will mimic the 6970 but on a smaller die with more shaders there is a possibility it will be faster and lower in power as well. Saving me from having to purchase a new power supply. Could end up saving me a bit more money. I could always go the 6950 + flash route but Im not too sure. If these cards are around the corner, It wouldnt make to much since.

And who knows bf3 + xfire 6970s in eyefinity may not even work out the best.

The waiting game never ends. The 7000 series should hit in October.

I would go with 6950's 2gb, PSU, blocks.

Then sell you existing 6850's, PSU, blocks.

Man for the life of me I cant find anyone wanting to buy 6850s with f/c blocks. Dont have 30+ rep here yet so I cant try. But craigslist/ebay dont work for me personally. Might have to bite the bullet on those.


The good thing about the 6950s, I wont need to upgrade the PSU. Which works out well in the money saving game.
