    Very nice indeed. I am hoping to upgrade my HD 6970 to a HD 8970 providing its worth the performance boost per $$$$. Or I will just wait around for the HD 9000 series. :D

    I didn't know they were releasing any 8000 series products. I thought ,they for some reason, were skipping directly to 9000.

    I thought I read that too, but wasn't sure. If that is the case, then HD 9000 series it is.

    Good to see you posting again. Do you spend more time on any other site. I spend a great deal of time on overclock.net. The Official FX Vishera Owners Club is a great forum it is sublisted under the general category of AMD CPU's. I also am in the Swiftech H220-H320 Owner's Club under water cooling. I have an order for an H320 with ncix.ca . The reason being that Asetek the OEM for Corsair and a couple of other AIO liquid cooling brand has threatened Swiftech for patent infringement. It is bull crap , but the cost of litigation is huge and Swiftech decided to pull the product from the US market. So I ordered it from a Canadian firm. The shipping cost was the only difference in price. ($13) it should be arriving at NCIX by August 9th and then they will ship it to me. Let you know about how it goes. The only real issue with that unit is the pump. It is powerful and has a tendency to create some air bubbles. So you have to purge the air through the reservoir occasionally. It comes as pre-filled all in one, but is expandable. The pump is strong enough to handle a second radiator or even a third.
    Other issue concerning me is if in fact AMD will issue and FX version of steamroller. That will not be established one way or another until late October to early November when AMD holds its developer conference, which has been renamed the APU conference. If AMD does cancel FX steamroller. I will not move over to the Kaveri apu as it really amounts to a lateral upgrade , not a real performance improvement over an 8350 FX. In 2015 Excavator will arrive, and if that is only in apu format then I will upgrade. That will be considerably better than an FX 8350.
    Tell me what is happening to my Canadian friend?

    that's what my decision depends on, I know a few AMD fans that will buy the 9970 straight away and bench the shit out of it. so my choice will be an informed one :p

    Hehe good call then!

    I'm quite curios as to how AMD plans to name its next series. Will it be 10970, or a whole new naming scheme?
