Well, time for me to consider getting one more 5870 while these fools sort out themselves.
Thats pretty much what im doing. Hoping ATI wants to be really dirty and plummet prices on current gen ATI cards and keep the refresher cards up to compete price wise and performance wise with the fermi parts.

ATI doesn't really have any reason to drop their prices until GF100 is released, so I have a feeling they'll drag it out with their current prices as long as they can and then drop them as soon as nVidia releases their cards.

What's with all the nerd-rage? Ya the announcement is shitty but hey the cards aren't ready. Big deal. Go buy ATI if you must. If not stop whining.

Yeah anyone voicing their opinions on a companies horrible marketing is clearly nerd rage. Theyve been rebadging since the 8800 series and now theyve realised people hate them for it, so this time theres a MASSIVE delay while they scramble around trying to be a real gpu manufacturer. If these chips turn out to actually be as good as the rumours, then fine, but if theyre barely matching atis cards after this amount of time, expect large loss of market share.

This is a hardware site. These are the kinds of things we discuss here. If you don't like it, you're free to not click on the link to this thread instead of whining about it.

Lol and ATI hasn't been rebadging since the HD 3000 series?

Oh and so far in 2010 ATI has been LOOSING market share so I don't know where people are getting that this has been affecting nvidia by that much. It is still hard to find some ATI cards so a lot of people aren't buying new cards. Not to mention you can run most games at near max settings with a less than 200 gpu anyways so there isn't really a high demand for newer cards. Then to add to the fact that it is not as strong as economy as before. So when you tie everything together it wouldn't really have mattered if nvidia released the cards back in november because there would have been even more shortages and still the same problem of economy and not a high need for more gpu power.

I always find it amazing that the subject of video cards never involves a gray area. It is simple to tell which team every person roots for. I am a self proclaimed and proud ATI fanboy so all I have to say is this: "HAHAHAHAHAHHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!" to all those waiting for Fermi's release and hoping it was today. If the rumors (which are most likely false) that Fermi is not that powerful compared to the HD5870 then I believe I will shit bricks for a week.


Anyhow, fanboys, put it in neutral. ATI boys should NOT rub it in since we still don't know. Nvidia boys need stop defending vapor-ware because until it exists in atleast the reviewer's hands, it IS vapor-ware.
