    Wizz you GOT to let me know if you are ever in Miami. I owe you some beer and some latin strippers. Trust me you've never had a lap dance until you've got one in Miami by a chica.

    now the consumer just needs a use for these DX11 cards. i doubt there is one single software company out there who has a timetable for creating a DX11 game.

    DiRT 2, GRID 2, Crysis 2, Stormrise, and some others I can't remember are DX11. I will definitely play some L4D. Now L4D2 is a game that SHOULD be DX11.

    Dirt 2 already has a demo on the 360. I bet the PC version is just waiting on ATI to ship.

    All I know is this better be awesome. As a stock holder I can think of better ways to spend my money than renting an Aircraft carrier to debut a new GPU............Well maybe not. I just wish I could go.

    Unveiling at a "museum"? Does that mean the card is archaic?

    And they are calling it "evergreen"! A card branded in nVidia's colour-space?

    AMD Marketing Team to fall on swords immediately. If they dont do it of their own accord, they should be pushed.

    They are using the term Evergreen to try to win over the enviro-tard crowd. Nothing to do with nVidia and it's green goblin schtick.

    If this card is as good as people are saying it's gonna be, then we all win. If you are an Amd/Ati fan then your team put out a decent product and you can make a retard out of yourself on forums all around the internet, proclaiming you fanboi-ism to anyone who will listen.
    If you like nVidia instead, you win too, because it will force team green to lower prices on their current cards, and debut their next gen for less than they would normally gouge you for.
    And then you can go about internet forums making a fool of yourself by fighting over a brandname/product with the Ati/Amd tards.
    Personally, I will just grab another 4870 or 2 and drop them in crossfire (trifire!) when evergreen forces the 48xx prices into the $100 zone.

    If the top-end cards really do consume 27W in idle mode, the term "Evergreen" is well deserved.

    That would be nice -- would mean they'd finally fixed the problems with stepping down the clocks on GDDR5 without any flickering (not that I really care about flickering :laugh: ).
