yarr diligently waiting for these cards, 3870 to a 5870 *jizzes a little*
im hoping i can play crysis smoothly on enthusiast with a 5870
been waiting for these for a while now. Time to upgrade from the old ATI x800. Served me well these few years but sadly... F*ck it, it sucks and all it's good for is compiz pretties. I want a R800 x2 in the worst way!!!!!!
Oh I knew they were coming, I just didn't care. I couldn't resist, thats why I'm a hardware junky.
I got rid of my HD4670 hoping to pick up an HD4770. But with newegg being sold out of them for the past week, I just finally couldn't resist anymore and bought an HD4890...plus the HD4890 had a black PCB which I fell in love with.
will there be a HD5770?
lol... doesnt it have 1200 RISC cores? technically its already a 1200 Core CPU.
Bollocks I want two of these on a corei7 laptop.
i heard it has a 1 hour battery life time
1 hour is quite optimistic
Oh lol, 1 hour xD
Anyway, this WILL be beast, hope it will make closer to Nvidia = lower prices.
Dont forget that 4770 almost beats 4850 (640 vs 800).
Lower TPD, will allow 3 gpu's on a single card ?5870X3?
with just a 33% increasement in shader/rop/power, they will have a smaller DIE, lower TPD, even lower cost
Price them high as 4870 retailed, ati is for alot of cash till GTX300 comes out, with 512 bit memory bus, and a big ass DIE, sure gonna cost alot!
nvidia goes for the crown, ati goes for the crowd!
We just have to wait and see!
that is the best summary I have read to date
Now if we can only get a game to run DX10.1 from the ground up before we "jump" to DX11.
DX 11 fail
who knows.. perhaps the new DX 11 cards will force DX10/10.1 cards to reduce price
Well DX11 will not fail. I just want to see a game utilize the current technology before jumping to 11.
didn't mean it literally
what i should have said was
DX 11 extraneous hype fail.
so whats in your system currently?
i'm currently in the process of saving up for a desktop.
i can tell you what i WILL be getting though.
but what use is that
god ati and nvidia need to stop bringing out new cards I havent even gotten a 4000 series yet and now something better is coming out...I hate you...............keep up the good work
Damn I hope it is possible to fab 5870X3 ,cus I am in true dire need of two of them in my rig!
My hardware cycle was set in stone a while ago...
Mem-2yr (Additions are allowed like 4GB to 8GB at anytime between then, this just means like DDR2 to DDR3 ect..)
Mainboard- Varies- mostly will stick with the CPU lifecycle
dang i just bought another 4850 for crossfire oh well it was only $109. i wont up grade till the first good DX11 Game comes out so some time late 2010-early2011 I thought these were comin like q1-q2 of 2010. will be nice to see how they run and power consumption hopefully they are decent with that CANT WAIT
