    Your sarcasm meter is low today. :p hehehe I think what he is saying is he only wants to see your review, and nothing else until then.. hehehe I wont believe any of this until I read your review either, but that doesn't mean I don't want to see other stuff. :toast: It's like trying to make everybody happy all the time.. Just not going to happen.. ehehehe:toast:

    He simply means he doesn't like/trust benches other than yours. You must recommend Dubstep (things like Justin Bieber Skrillex remix) to him, for the lulz.

    To the people who are basing nvidia: (what I comment here is according to rumors. I know that rumours can be fake or real. But I do not care anyway, I don't want one of those anyway :cool:)

    "nvidia need a overclocked card to compete against 7970"
    Really? Then can you go back to last generation cards. Where gtx 570's core clock was 732 MHz and memory clock was 3.8 GHz. There AMD needed a overclocked card hd 6970 (Core clock 880MHz and memory clock 5.5 GHz) to barely beat it. Let alone gtx 580. According to your useless arguments, going on everywhere under every upcoming nvidia card rumor posts. But AMD fanboys did not talk about the higher clocks AMD cards had on that time even though they had almost 150 MHz core clock and 1.7 GHz memory higher clock than nvidia. But now screaming like nothing for rumored gtx680 having only about 80 MHz core clock and 0.5 GHz memory clock advantage over 7970. What a ridiculous minds you all have. The most ridiculous thing is; they are fighting against something that doesn't exist yet. No one knows about the actual specs, performance & power consumption yet. Then why? I think they could not bear the unofficial leaks. They even know those leaks can be fake. Yet they couldn't take it. Funny enough.. :roll:

    "nvidia overclocked mid-end card and priced it to high end level card"
    Another funny thought. 1st of all, according to rumors, reference base clock is 1006 MHz, which means it is not overclocked card. We can consider it as an overclocked card under one circumstances, that is; if it cannot be overclocked further more and match the performance of OCed 7970. Furthermore if you think, its performance is on par with what you think mid-end performance, then you have to bash AMD for these higher prices. Not nvidia. Because their 7970's performance is also on par with gtx 680's(This is a mid-end performance card according to you), if not a lower (According to rumour again). Moreover AMD released the 7970 first and fixed the price for it. SO why would you think that nvidia have to price this card to $300? If you need this performance to be on a $300 card, simply petition AMD to lower their 7970's price to $300. I have a funny feeling that those people screaming under such posts are the people who want an AMD 7970 card for $300 - $400 price tag and cannot afford to buy one at current price. My advice for you to simply buy pitcain or last gen card from your beloved AMD. If you still thinking that nvidia have to price this card below $400(even $500) then AMD will drop prices of the tahiti cards, so you can buy one, please erase those thoughts, because that will only happen in your dream, if the rumored gtx 680's or whatever they call it's performance is correct as they said. ;)

    Try to explain here that UE3+Cell shading = 9600GT feels like a boss

    So you should be:
    1. The GTX 680 launch is imminent, the GK110 is not
    2. If AMD/Nvidia deem this level of performance worthy of $550, what price tag is the GK110 likely to attract if it offers 50% more ?
    2a. I doubt that GK110- even at high (for gaming card) prices, would be seen as in quantity as a gaming card. Historically, Nvidia's large die GPU is aimed at HPC and the pro market (Tesla & Quadro) where the ASP's are MUCH higher, and Nvidia likely already has a sizeable chunk of production earmarked if this is anything to go by.

    Hey Wiz,

    Would it be possible to start pushing higher resolutions? My feeling is that the 7970 gets a bigger performance lead over the 7870 in eyefinity setups. (1920x1200 eyefinity gives 40% more pixels than a single 2560x1600). And with prices dropping on monitors I think more and more members of these forums actually run 3 monitors vs single super hi-res displays.

    Also, as nVidia and AMD will both natively support 3 monitor setups on a single card I think it would fit nicely in the reviews.

    People just do not understand sarcasm AT ALL.

    No sense of humor either.
