Uhmm nice wanna see more from EVGA
Looks like it will be ready November 9th for $599.
EDIT: I used the wrong smiley face..lol It's early I need more caffeine!...
Good God, roughly 700 USD.
500 euros?!? 600 (700)$ ?!?!?
I'm not convinced this is legit. I just checked the websit and couldn't find a listing for the card.
hmm thats really fast, i hope its not just a horrible 5 minute photoshop, so the site can gain higher traffic.
btw if they price the card for $500 then i hope ati HD 6970 can smack this card with lower price so nvdia will price the card lower just like HD 4870 VS GTX 260 era
its ok but IT ROCKS AT TESSELATION
From 5% to nearly 40% more perf than the GTX480 , hard work for cayman xt
I really hope it's not $599, that's way to much to pay for a single GPU card imo.
If they stop selling the gtx480, then this price will fall.
And if the 6970 offers similar performance for like $150 less.
LOL 700 USD, better take 2 gtx470 for 520$ and u kick this 580 ass
If it does perform better than a GTX 480 by 20% and consumes less or similar power and produces a gentle whisper - it's a good card. I'd pay... about £400 for one (599 dollars = 368 british quid then add taxes).
If it is better than Cayman, I'll buy one. Even if Cayman was cheaper.
I'll pay £500 for a single gpu card 30-40% faster than a gtx 480 that sucks the same power and isn't noisy. But i probably am dreaming here.
24% on average, and that's according to nv leaks, so i assume it would be roughly 20%, that doesn't justify 600 dolars, even if is more efficient than gtx 480, IMHO.
Add to that, HD6970 will be +/- 5%, for 450 dolars, so undoubtedly 600USD is way to much, considering the other options.
nvidia knows that tesselation is the future of next generations games... any game in the future will not be done this way will make you sick
The 6xxx series handle tesselation okay so far - obviouly not as well as NV. But consider this, the extreme tesselation setting on Heaven is awful. Realism, not exaggeration is the key. So optimally, tesselation needs to be handled properly, otherwise we'll have a shit load of games with bubbles for cobbles and every zit on a face will be a horn.
I dont want a £400 gfx card to render me bubbles goddamnit.
It still amazes me that there are people out there that think performance and price go up in a linear fashion.
Or that think a card is overpriced because two lower cards in SLi/Crossfire outperform it for a cheaper price. Do they not realize that two GTX470s in SLi for $500 outperform an HD5970 for $650 as well?
So? HD5970 IS overpriced, what's your point?
Also called as cheap photoshopped promo picture. Look around, there's a ton of that stuff around the nets.
I'll stick with my GTX 470's a while. Probably won't seriously consider upgrading GPUs until generation after next.
Microstutter is only perceptible when the amount of frames being produced is less than your monitor's refresh rate. I don't notice any when that is case, which is rare.

same here. ill need a new psu anyways. as i think my psu hardly can handle my system now.
My point is that just because you can't afford it, that doesn't make it overpriced. Higher performance comes at a higher price premium, it has always been this way and it will always be this way.
No, I can afford it, but i prefer not to buy it, because it is overpriced.
EDIT: also, because performance/price ratio is screwed with that card.
EDIT: is not higher performance, i think you meant highest.
Looks good there was nothing wrong with the 480 to begin with so this will surely be good. The 280 got the same crap and to this days is still a good gaming card. This will be the muscle car of video gaming. If your into going green then there are other options but if not here ya go.
Whoever has the fastest can charge whatever they wan't for it, that's something you just have to accept. 8800Ultra's were overpriced, the core i7 980x is overpriced. AMD FX CPU's were overpriced. there will always be better value options than these products.
Higher will do just fine, since you can have a faster setup for less cost, I think higher works here. fastest single card yes, fastest setup for the price of that card, no. spend your money wisely.
