This can't be anything special right? Is there still much to gain on their CGN 2.0 architecture?

First rig complete and loving it! thumb.gif

I am pretty sure there isn't an 8970/9970 coming out guys. This is just the APU stuff / next gen box stuff.

Might want to prepare the return label....


Why? Next gen will be double what a 7950 is selling for now. I'm not seeing how its release will affect your purchase at half the price point??

Just because they are possibly showing the cards does not mean they will be available anytime soon.

Well, if the 8970 matches or beats the 780, AMD will likely sell it for $650 or slightly less. The 8950 will likely be around 7970Ghz performance which means they can get away with selling it for $450. I guess there won't be need for regret if that's the case (my windforce still has some OC headroom. Just a humble 1Ghz core now).
However, if AMD chooses to ignore Nvidia and price the 8970 (if it matches 780 performance OC'd) at around $450, then I'll sell my kidneys and get one even though I only game at 1080p...

It is very likely that this is just gonna be an APU announcement (especially given the 4 core part of the video ...)

Wouldn't mind having a radeon to play with.

Though by the time these launch I'll probably be serving in the army. But maybe that wont stop me lol.

Anyways I kinda hope that the previous leaked specs aren't true, and that instead of clocking these really high out of the box AMD would opt to go balls to the wall with the specs themselves and let enthusiasts do their job. Don't want another HD6000.

(and assuming this is about high end graphics cards at all ofc)
