    MSI GeForce GTX 650 Power Edition OC 1024 MB

    Wow...(YAWN)....More disappointing than I anticipated. And that price needs to change ASAP.

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition "Tahiti XT2" Detailed

    Personally, I also consider the 460 (despite the numbering) to be a replacement for the abysmal 465. It completely eclipsed that card, and came two months later. Some might disagree though, since it was G104.

    AMD FirePro W9000 Dual-GPU Graphics Card Pictured, Design Precursor of HD 7990?

    I've been waiting for a continuation of this discussion. LOL!

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition "Tahiti XT2" Detailed

    Did that already, and can find nothing on disappearing objects from games. Perhaps you can "help" me instead. And I'm still not getting how GRID is an incentive to buy a Nvidia card.

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition "Tahiti XT2" Detailed

    Huh? Is GRID really part of this?

    A Crate at TechPowerUp's Doorstep

    AMD doesn't appear to care, or they're perfecting the 7990 (I say this with a grain of salt), since it has apparently been pushed back. Meh, either card is likely to be way too expensive for my peasant budget.

    Core i7-3960X About 47% Faster On Average Than Core i7-990X: Intel

    And you are you telling me this, why? My whole point was why are people bringing up Bulldozer in this topic. Period. Did you understand that? Where did I indicate that people shouldn't be excited about this product, or that the only reason they are excited is because of BD crushing? Hell, I'm...

    Core i7-3960X About 47% Faster On Average Than Core i7-990X: Intel

    AMD's doing the same thing, essentially. There will be 3 products utilizing the Bulldozer name. Next year (whenever) is supposed to see the release of enhanced Bulldozer (running on a new socket, so probably not the same thing as you mention) and an APU using a Bulldozer CPU. They're also...

    Core i7-3960X About 47% Faster On Average Than Core i7-990X: Intel

    If it's not about cost, then of course you would go with this particular Intel CPU. It's guaranteed to be the more powerful product. Why would anyone expect less of an $800 (potentially $1000) Intel cpu? Did anyone really expect AMD's $300 CPU, which they've slated as competition for SB, to...

    Core i7-3960X About 47% Faster On Average Than Core i7-990X: Intel

    I'm a bit confused......Why are folks excited that a (more than likely) $800+ Intel CPU is going to better than AMD's $320 offering? Wasn't this expected?

    So these "slides" are confirmed to be authentic?

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    Yes, you think it will be a big flop. We understand.

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    Also, to clarify, Fusion and the Intel variation of APU seem to be entirely different. Fusion is significantly broader in scope (apparently). But that's better suited for another discussion.

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    You're joking.....................Right?

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    Well, looking at the number of initial responses, I foresee it succeeding.

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    Needless to say, the CPU game has gotten real exciting!

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    You guys are also forgetting there is supposed to be a 12 core Bulldozer as well.

    Bulldozer 50% Faster than Core i7 and Phenom II

    Uh..What? The CPU' are rumored to come out the 2nd and 3rd quarter of this year. If it's 50% it'll be faster/equivalent (apparently) than the the newer Intel CPU'. Can't recall if server or client products arrive first. edit: I kinda misread what you posted originally.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1.5 GB

    The 6970 is hot and hungry? That's the first I've heard of that. I thought it just demanded slightly more power than the typical AMD card.

    HIS Radeon HD 6870 Turbo 1 GB

    Hmmm....The performance summary seems to be off...In most of the tests, the turbo 6870 is equivalent to a 470 in most games; particularly at higher res. Even the stock 6870 only marginally trails it. How did the 470 jump 5-8% in performance, when last week it was only 3%? :confused:

    ASUS GeForce GTS 450 TOP DirectCU 1 GB

    I'm not sure how that refutes the point I made, but okay. If the average consumer doesn't know what CUDA is, how will it benefit him? Chances are he wouldn't fully comprehend PhysX or Eyeinfinity either. Here's how a GTX 460, which is 30% faster than this card, performs in 3d Vision in both...

    ASUS GeForce GTS 450 TOP DirectCU 1 GB

    Hmm...According to the reviews, at reference settings, the 5770 is 8-12% faster and about the same price as the 450. Also, according to Anandtech, depending on the model of the 5770, the noise levels are actually quite close. With the 450 being rated 43 and 5770 being rated 47. PhysX is...

    ASUS GeForce GTS 450 TOP DirectCU 1 GB

    Quick question, why is the 5770 up there with the GTX 470 in terms of fan-noise when under full load? Is that accurate? http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTS_450_TOP_DirectCU/27.html
