    I dont pay a dime for the GPUs i have here, just the pleasures of being a reviewer.
    And to conclude u have nothing smart to say and probably agreed with what i said, its ok son.

    I still don't know what the GTX680 has to offer, so i can't really say anything about it. I just hope it will include out-of-the-box triple monitor support.

    Well i know the 7970s have 2 mini DP ports but you can use a DisplayPort Hub right?

    Don't know if you know but Kyle over at hardOCP (another AMD biased site) said that he info from China (so not around the webz) that in canned benchmarks - artificial - this is 45-50% over the GTX 580 and it will support 3 monitors NV surround out of the box. Take it as you wish.

    I can use a hub to chain-link two MiniDPs and get 6 displays up and running. 5 on one GPU, not a secret.

    And before you say something, no, it doesnot work the same way on NVIDIA

    Please, correct me if I am wrong.

    FX 5, failed? yes
    G71, failed? yes (and more than yes, super defective GPU :) )
    Renaming 8800/9800/GTs 250? failed...

    So nVidia do a good job? As good as AMD, they both have problems, they both have good cards..

    As for now, we don't know yet about nVidia new GPU.. Maybe they will, maybe they won't...

    Is it just me or is Pioneer´s and LiveofDie´s English skill lacking?

    Anywho, speculation speculation, give us facts, give us benchmarks otherwise I will not care.

    Hang on a second, I thought Nvidia was getting rid of their separate clocks for the shaders and it was only going to behave the same as AMD cards. Another rumour falsified i suppose. Anyway the card looks well set out, but i'm still curious about the spare solder points for another 6-pin power connector. Benchies soon I hope.

    We will see when nVidia actually releases some legit information on the GPU. You know, some older chips had spots for a second power connector and if you soldered a connector on, it was in some cases to get better over-clocks out of them. My only concern would be, how much power will this puppy eat up and how much more can it take before temperatures and power consumption becomes unrealistic?

    yeh thats why im curious, i remember back in the 8xxx and 9xxx days of the geforce cards how it gave some extra power for better OCs.

    On that, for Kyle canned benchmark == any benchmark not done by HardOCP, so for example all of W1zz's reviews == canned bench for him.

    A lot of these rumors are showing up on Chinese websites with no cited sources. Weather this information is legit or not is very up in the air. Only nVidia can set the record straight, unfortunately.

    This will happen very soon. Our very own Wizz is on his way to SF for NV briefing.

    your fan boysim eyes cant be seen world biggest fail in human history?? HD2900 XT :banghead: LOL ;)

    after G80 series nvidia is always wins in single gpu cards

    gtx280 defeat hd4870

    gtx 480 defeat hd5870

    gtx 580 defeat hd6970

    all time nvidia is absolute winner -amd lol's fan never seen fps stuttering in their shity cards....... if they care about that (but they dont know anything about that)

    we believe this bro : :

    never underestimate the power of ......... people in large group

    .... ... = something like stupid

    putting so much sh*t your card draws twice the power and only 20% faster isn't a win to brag about
    (GTX480) (I'm not even mentioning price tags)

    A lot of posts here are so full of BS and stupid Un-equationable equations

    Sure Honda, your civic is good but our veyron supersport is better
    Can't believe i'm even putting an effort to post about these subjects

    And mr. pioneer, learn how to express yourself better, these kind of posts don't do good for your reputation or what's left of it.

    Here's hoping they price it at $549 and offer better performance than a 7970. That way 7970 prices will come down to earth and the planets will re-align.

    No one know for sure, but there are rumors that nVidia is going to release information mid-march and something is going to be released closer to April, but take this with a grain of salt.

    Edit: Your link is broken.

    If you must know I'm dyslexic i do the best i cant, and its liveordie not liveofdie :p

    And dont for get

    The 7970 and the GTX 680 will be DX11 and will fill in the gaps till windows 8 is released which is DX12 based, So there no need to guess AMD will release a new line up with a following 8970 Codenamed "Tenerife" and Nvidia will release there GTX 780 which every one knows is coming.

    That would be stupid because you forgot to use the image button.

    Quality of this site is going down, you all sound very immature. For goodness sake lets hope this thing slaughters the 7970 and comes in at $350 so i can pick up a 7970 on the cheap. Both sides perform relatively well we just need more competition.
     
    w3b, brandonwh64, 1c3d0g and 2 others say thanks.

    yeah sure I am a fanboy ...

    let me correct this:

    gtx280 defeat hd4870 ---> the HD4870 cost less that and consume less than the GTX 280, you need to compare to GTX 260

    gtx 480 defeat hd5870 ---> the HD5870 cost less that and consume less than the GTX 480, you need to compare to GTX 470

    gtx 580 defeat hd6970 ---> the HD6970 cost less that and consume less than the GTX 580, you need to compare to GTX 570

    I just don't give a shit who's the top performer.. I just want a good performance/price. You are comparing 2 GPU that are not in the same battle.

    hey wait, compare a Porsche 911 Turbo to an Acura TL.... They are not in the same battle. You are a real clown :D . You are the "fanboy" in there.

    :slap:

    as for the HD2900XT, yes it was a fail, but the card was working at least. Not The 7900GT/GTX, as they failed out of the box. This is a pure fail!


    Please stop calling people fanboy, as you should look at ya.

    "Another AMD biased site" that "reviews" a GTX 580 after the release of the 7000 series, compares its benchmark results against... well, nothing, and gives it a gold award because it's a single card that can drive three monitors. There's definitely a whole lot of bias at HardOCP, but it's not toward AMD.

    absolute winner, shitty card, fanboy, biggest fail, always win. etc..
    err....., this thread is going out of nowhere :wtf:

    i know it's a freedom of speech, but if you respect all of articles on TPU, at least wait until w1zz release a benchmark. otherwise, stop flaming or for the good sake ; keep your mouth shut..
