what part you dont get about IMO? couldnt careless if its 50% improvement
to be fair, sidegrade is a pretty specific term. you used the wrong word. why do some people have to turn everything into an argument instead of admitting they were wrong?

this most definitely is not a sidegrade, but an upgrade. personal preferences don't matter.

...At the end of the day, this card performs well and isn't overly expensive.
In Europe we are getting HD7970 for $700, so who's to say it's cheap. I can buy Xbox 360, PS3 and dozen of games for that kind of money.

I'd wait to see on the launch day, I remember I purchased my 6990s for 524 euros on launch which isn't a bad price honestly.
