    i check on AMD site, it still tagged for OEM's only. i dont know why best buy can sell it. but if this card is already on retail, there's should be a review somewhere..

    i'm not mad when someone not making jokes from it. but somewhat i agree if this card should never been released, there only a little margin left between 5770 & 6790.

    $179 price tag? best buy must be joking..

    EDITED :
    they make a retail release right now :wtf:

    I checked XFX, while trying to reply to u2konline about the differences between the 5770 and the 6770, because that's best buy's model, and they list the card, but have no information about it.

    6750 and 6770 are exact copies of each other everything is the same down to the chips and pcb, the only difference is the vendor and bios IDs which make it so the 6750 and 6770 you buy at the store dont work because no god damn driver exists for them, in the retail market, the cards were originally only OEM models and acer hp etc have there own drivers for the cards, that said those drivers dont work with retail models meaning 6700 series is so fail its like the 8800gts 512 > 9800GTX > 9800 GTX + > GTS 250 situation except worse because those cards still worked

    It's not that much of a fail if they price it right. Like, the same price the HD 5750 and the HD 5770 are now. But yeah, what you said is what we've been discussing so far.

    It's the "NEW" factor. It will wear off once people learn that those two cards are rebrands.
