    In case you just missed the article, or you didn't want to read, they actually talked with a Sapphire rep, which it's likely to be true because Kitguru is known to have contacts with Sapphire, unlike "OBR".

    They have shown proof, unlike OBR.

    So Sapphire employee (which isn't fired) will say that they are screwed-up? I don't think so. :roll:

    What about he probably answered to a made up rumour? Doesn't seem so hard to understand.

    Banks also denied rumors and the next day economy crisis started.

    Some people can't help but troll certain threads.

    Sapphire make card in limited quantities by it's own admission. It sells out fast so they make more.

    What's your point Recus?

    OBR is a dead end source. Here is what they said in January about Kepler.

    And we all know at high resolutions, clock for clock, the 7970 is faster than 680. Below is top end of performance summary from GTX 680 KFA OC review. The purpose of posting this pic is to prove that OBR were very wrong about their predictions of Kepler. I'm simply discrediting their reliability for the sake of this argument (not even caring about the limited quantities of a 'limited edition' card).

    How about from Sapphire themselves? Will that do? :rolleyes: Click the Sapphire Select Club Tab and read "What's New

    Saying Demerjian fan.

    If GTX 680 put above HD 7970 GE it doesn't mean that AMD is faster. Both have 100%.

    Will you beg them to post real numbers?

    Unsure what you mean? OBR hates CD and S|A. Who's the CD fan?

    Clock for clock (specifically what I said in my post) at top resolution. A GHz card running at clocks (1050) beats out the GTX 680 with base clock of 1006 and boosts within an average range of 1110, equaling 1058 (from TPU GTX 680 review).

    The entire point is, OBR who was the initial source of the rumour is crap with info. Your reply of:

    is utterly irrelevant. It's the old you can't prove it's not true argument that should be kept well away from reasoned arguments (something a lot of techy fans seem unable to do).

    So final point from me will be, time will prove it to be true or not true, therefore I'll revisit this thread if/when the 6GB Toxics appear back in the shops.

    Until then, lets leave the thread to the guy who's enjoying his card and others who would like to discuss that card. And not any trollish crap around it.
     
    radrok and SIGSEGV say thanks.

    Man don't lose time arguing with him, he's the one who links OBR posts to prove his point (already seen him do it in other threads) so it is natural that he defends such a site.

    He's just trolling us.

    Ah yes.

    Now where was I?

    Observe date in bottom right hand corner. Oh lookee, more were made after all. Looks like Sapphire were right and OBR were wrong. Ho Hum, who'd a thunk it?
