    Hey.. I'm just kidding :p

    That's exactly what happened in my country. New stuff is coming early (you can even pre-order) but always high on the price and you must wait for a long time for a price cuts.

    Hopefully the price cuts will come here ASAP, it will be good if it happens before Mayan's doomsday. LOL.

    On topic :
    mid-November release date according to 3dcenter : http://www.3dcenter.org/news/tahiti-basierte-radeon-hd-7890-soll-schon-mitte-november-antreten

    It is more likely to be HD 7930.
    Maybe 10% faster than HD7870?:banghead:

    No, It's kinda cheap and It runs perfectly fine today. And it isn't from newegg, it is just from a local store :).

    They charge a steep price away from MSRP,why reducing a price if still sell like pancake :p

    OT:Great AMD,now i have to reconsider about my future 7870 GHz edition :shadedshu

    2 of 7950 would be an overkill for single display 1080p :)
    from current setups,which is 2 7850,still not "enough" to my current display panel.i'm just need little juice to maintain frame rate above 60fps while turning all feature on,so my panel could convert them to 200Hz 3D correctly.
    Besides that,i had to savings...my fiancée demand FirePro V5800 for christmas :laugh:

    Hey remember 7870 vs 660 Ti is like $70 difference! So 10% Difference is not important. 7970 GHz and 680 and 7950 vs 670, they're both the same or cheaper. So this case, any percentage of performance does matter.

    iirc certain model Radeons are the exact same as the FirePro and vice versa, wonder if any bios mods have ever been done before lol

    Imho, either HD7870 or HD7950 won't die and still will sell much, you should read once again regarding this article that this card has LE emblem which mean Limited Edition :)

    exactly, they should thanks to many rich people in Indonesia who constantly upgrade their peripheral and making most of graphic cards price remain constant since its released. :rockout:

    so, you wanna sell your HD7870 cards ? :respect:

    i will wait on how this card will performs, it's interesting. They're offering a nice package (price per performance) but one thing that i don't like from this card is being limited :banghead:

    Like when 6790’s came out… those were a good buy for 90 –AR; which is what some went for quite quickly. AMD targeted the GTS550Ti or outgoing GTX460 768Mb, and on that they competed very well. Working from a cut-back Bart that were $30-40 less than a 6850, but still got a all that and then an OC of 12% (950Mhz) were great for 1680x.

    I see this the same way, AMD can price aggressively at say $230-240 –AR, (GTX660Ti are like $270 –AR today) you get a 384-Bit card that easily offers strong 1980x/1080p performance. Still also permits AMD to shore-up both the 7870 and 7950 that offer the bundles.

    Does it need to be 10% better than a 7870... No you get it and OC it! It just need to better the 7870, while provide more SP’s and bandwidth increasing its "hp" for what's the new mainstream resolutions. While that means Nvidia offers a 192-Bit 2GB card which provides 144Gb/s bandwidth (which to me is barely eke’n by) vs. probably 240 Gb/s of such a Tahiti.

    I might start scrounging up some pocket change in anticipation.

    32ROP
    1000MHz clock
    FP64 1/4 FP32 (hopefully)

    I was interested when the rumors were flying in March of a 7890 but I couldn't wait so I picked up a gtx670 instead this summer.

    Crossfire issue?

    Don't know if this came up yet but if this card is a Tahiti LE (79xx gpu) and called a 7890... what can you run with it in Crossfire?

    - just another 7890 (or two)?
    - 7850/7870?
    - 7950/7970?
    - nothing- no Crossfire support?

    Seems this new naming scheme is going to be a problem :shadedshu

    im assuming it will be relegated to being 7800 series compatible.

    I think that these gaps are way too small to put another product in them. It would undercut some of the sales of the higher performance and lower performance cards around that gap

    You know with the 78XX moniker and not the 79XX, the price of this card is gonna undercut the 7950 and end up cannibalizing the 7950.

    And we all know people who end up buying mid~high range video card are enthusiast like us who actually does a bit of research before purchasing.

    Must be that the process has gotten cheaper for AMD and is a way for them to stop production the 7950 soon after the 8000 series is out.

    ^^ or........... like the (another)article said its chips that couldnt quite cut it as a 7950 so they made this card instead? ^^

    AMD is different than Nvidia of course, but last I recall the odd 560ti 448 core you could only SLI with another 448c. Again, AMD is different and you can Crossfire similiar families. At worst CrossfireX with itself. At best, both 78xx and 79xx series.

    Definitely too small of a gap.
    I think this is more of a case of excess materials possibly materials which were supposed to be used for the GPU which was never released.
    So AMD have decided to put the materials towards creating the 7890 instead of the GPU which was supposed to compete with the GTX690.
