    awesome, now kick it up to 320bit instead , and give us 2560 MB on the card

    I'm keen to see what they did with the ROP count, Nvidia always seem to be a leg up on that, have been for a while. I've always felt this is able to help Nvidia considerably maintaining the most powerful single GPU's.

    ATi stayed at 16 while nvidia did a generation of 24 ROPS (G80), then 32 ROPS (GT200), now that ATi are up to 32 Nvidia jumped to 48 (GF100).

    having said that ATi's core clocks are always a decent bit higher, so I bet if the architectural improvements + increased memory bandwidth are enough, they'd do just fine.

    This makes me feel bad for my 5850 toxic. There WAS a point in time where it used to be considered one of the kings. It appears it will be dropped a few notches with this guy.

    sorry to say it but its already dropped a few notches... Ati have two cards faster and so does Nvidia, nowadays you'd need two to be one of the 'kings' :) remember, the card is almost one year old.

    not downplaying it, I've owned a 5870 and 5850, even at the same time so I love 5850's to bits, I'd suggest in a few months when all this new sham-wazzle comes out to grab a second for crossfire, or consider a 6850 if they live up to the prowess of the 5850.

    Yeah, I just remember being excited when I bought it because GF100s weren't out and the only cards beating it were 5870 and 5970 (though unavailable anywhere lol). I think I'll be quite content with this little guy for a long time as I have yet to find anything that's really bogged it down :)

    Going by the gpu name on gpu-z it would be the card listed as "233,CAYMAN XT (6718),NI CAYMAN" in the catalyst 10.8 drivers would it not?

    and as far as i knew the xt would be the top card and a few sites are reporting cayman as the 68xx so could that shot possibly be the 6870?

    so umm is xt or pro the top card? it feels like so long since ati droped them from their retail branding i cant remember

    I would love to have the best as it is always the best for me :) however when bank accounts start turning blood red I have to reconsider that statement lol.

    yes

    xt is 6870, pro is 6850. at least that's how it has been for the last generations

    To be honest if the score and what little information in the picture is true it's starting to look like i may be saving up for an ati 6870, i was so close to going bk to nvidia again

    I am looking forward to these cards so much right now, not only for thier own performance and features but also for the price drops of the 5xxx and g4xx... It really looks like christmas will be coming early to a lot of people like me looking to upgrade our gpu's :D

    come on please no flame baiting yet, BTW no one here believes seriously that you get max frames with a watchamacallit 84hundred

    im not only looking forward to THEIR performance, im also looking forward to the ATI flamers attacking the NVIDIA GPU thread, its going to be epic trolling, fun fun

    I'm going out on a limb and call BS on that screenshot. It looks kinda tampered with.

    w1z said in another post with (i think) the same screenshot, that nothing about it looked tampered. it was def a 6800 SS, and i am almost positive it was the same one as this.

    i didnt say that the screenshot was real, or that the card exists, or that the data is correct.

    all i said was that i dont see any evidence that the screenshot is fake

    very diplomatic, but understandably so too.

    until your actually provided with an engineering sample you cant make GPU-Z properly recognise one right?

    not diplomatic, just carefully picking the correct words.

    having a card here is easiest, but also no problem if someone had a card to test test builds on.

    already working with amd on adding support, at the corporate red tape pre-approval stage right now

    WOOOHOO LoL bench , and that's not the new core , that's a hybrid with something new but still using old other part that make it stay 40nm, I don't blame TSMC at all , come on technology is going up so fast but the process is not ready yet it would make it same deal as with nvidia who wanted to force out something that's hard to do.

    Just give TMSC the time i think they're the most up to date fab anyways, and it's not "TSMC having problems with 40nm process" as VIRAL TECH SITEZ reported , it's NVIDIAS OWN CHIP that was to blame , as those blamed TSMC and not nvidia for very low yields.

    And going with 40nm here is good choice for ati in any possible way , 28nm process isn't yet ready (and neither would 32nm be if continued) so don't banghead into the solid wall, got a new part of the GPU , updating the older part and optimizing , a stable process and no need to worry about yields ,

    So not go just hey this is a rebrand oh crap , no it's completely updated as they said , and if the scores are true that would make sense, and just .... HOW DAMN THEN THE NORTHEN ISLANDS WOULD BE ????:rockout:

    if it is true and the 6870 at this point only is 25% better than the 5870 then what will happen when drivers acually support it?? we are looking at a maximum 35% performance increase and thats nothing to bat an eye at. anyone here have photoshop?? it would be pretty easy to tell if the SS was fake. just find the source dowlad it and find out if there are different layers and if text was added in. its been done before. why not.

    EDIT when the 5970 was leaked everyone called BS because of the cards size, as we found out it wasnt BS at all

    Well I have an eye for photoshop. However if properly done its IMPOSSIBLE to tell if something has been tampered with. Now with that being said I feel that SS is fake and Ill tell you why.

    The text in the tab view looks to be a different resolution then the text in the info boxes. Now I could be wrong but thats what I question. Its tough to tell with such a small picture.

    Now wouldn't X11K put it in the 5970 area. Man if that is the case.... just imagine the Double chip version.
    Were would that be (KNowing ATI's crummy scaling) Around X17k or more. Nice!

    Good thing I have already been saving for a couple of these bad boys from this gen. Although I think I am going 6850 from the get go this time not all the way to the 6870. XX50 cards are usually the Price performance cards anyway!
