If their second line can do 16% above AMD's topline. Then I have no worries who wears the crown this round. And honestly, the price point is perfect. Coupled with the fact that tight competition between the two vendors will keep prices in check makes the consumer win.You know, i am for the most part a loyalist to the red camp but still open minded. BUT when someone whom is a adamant nvidia fanboy ALSO thinks something smells rotten in denmark I think that tells you something. :clap: :thumb:
I agree with the thought/theory that this is a band aid/cash grab move by nvidia vs amd. A Ti version of this with the compute cores will come out, push the 680 cheaper to as sugested price.
The ONLY win here is there own fixing of the 1 thing like I said thats ALWAYS been there problem ... heat/wattage. Only taken them how long now to do so ....
And for those calling this card some kinda dominate winner vs 7970's i think you's are all doin the :funky:if you's think so. :doh: :shok: This isnt a :thumb: on this card .... its more of a :blarg: .
The ONLY :thumb: in this situation is competition for our $'s causing it to hopefully get the 2 companies into a price war with each other.
I cheered when AMD brought out their Cards (by all means check) but they aren't bringing it fast enough, and there drivers are mature. Once nVidia starts refining theirs we may see 20%...and then they will launch GK110 for those who have to have the fastest.
It might have taken them years, but they Learned from the past, that Terry is the sign of a smart company.
Santa Clara wins this round.
