Or at least, more than the 6850 which is a bit disappointing...
7770 Such a lovely number...
AMD - please let loose of the prices!
well we are comparing launch price with cards that are over a year old, give it a couple month and they will be cheap
tho it makes s

very true, but this is for a reason and that is TSMC to blame, they raised the prices per wafer by like 20-30% for 28nm(which is 40% die shrink) that being said amd would have to build smaller chips to be able to price them like the 40nm chips. they ended up with a 123mm^2 die size compared with the old 170mm^2, that is a good 40% smaller, and the 20% increase in performance is due to the new architecture
random note* in games that require more cpu power the gcn architecture seems to be doing good, like in civilization and crysis 2, not to mention amd didnt release an official catalyst driver for the 7000 series so there might still be some tricks up their sleeves
