    If the 6870 has the punch (or greater than) of the GTX 480, that would be swell. But it also needs to remain in a conservative power envelope and an acoustical one too. The two reasons i didnt buy Fermi (three sorry) were: Power/Noise and Delays.

    If the 6xxx series keep the power and noise down then it's very very bad news for NV. Furthermore, if NV have no answer to it (unknown at this point) developers will more likely look more and more to ATI for 'affiliation'.

    Which could be very bad for prices.......

    damn CDd55, as I remember you were on a budget not long ago. Looks like that budget's grown massive. :p
    I'm almost no doubt buying a 6850, but just hope the prices are decent! :cry:
    Will measure it up against a 6870 though, since 5850 could clock close to 5870 and was the most efficient card at HD in the WORLD (until the 5450 apparently), I'll be comparing the 6850 & 70 the same way to see if the extra cost is really worth it.
     
    CDdude55 says thanks.
