Awesome card!

7970 and 680 became pointless
LOL
Seriously, it is too close to the GTX 680, nvidia will compete with themselves. At least that way nobody will buy GTX 680 and it will be available again :D

AMD needs that Ghz version really fast, or at least set ref 7970 at $420.

It's like Geforce Ti4200 vs Ti4400
or Geforce 6800GT vs 6800Ultra
well that is so wierd tho, same thing with tahiti and pitcairn happened
i think if anything this only tells us how un-optimized these benchmarks are to the new architectures as it seems certain games reach a certain fps limit and doesnt seem to wanna go higher, you see with pitcarn and tahiti they were 2 different chips with different arrangments memory controller and layout in general, but here its the same gk104 with less shaders and lower clock speed. just impressive as of today but still very wierd

maybe wizz has a say about this?

I find it interesting that even with a short and cheap PCB, they included the extra memory pads to easily release a 4GB version. It looks like nVidia really put a lot of thought into this card. I think I might be upgrading when a 4GB version comes out.

I'll pay 100 bucks for a little more performance and headroom in OC.. Works just fine for me.. Idk, I guess 100 bucks just isn't that much to me. When it comes to the difference between 25 fps and 30 fps.. I'll take 30 fps..

All of the pricing for this series is ridiculous tbh..

25 vs 30 is 20%
it's more like 28 fps vs 30 fps, for me 2fps isn't worth $100
It's not about $100 being much it is about not being idiotic to pay more for the same (no offence).

Yeah, pricing of this series is ridiculous, i'be been saying it again and again.

But it's not "the same"... 2 fps isn't the same, Also it's like one game where it's a 2 fps difference... Nor is the 5-10 fps u get in other games "the same". I don't regret buying it at all. Even if I did spend more for it.. It doesn't bug me. Nor do I consider anyone an "idiot" who decides to do so.

It's their money, no one elses.. It's also just plain rude to call people idiots.
worst case scenario, they support the economy more and they get slightly "better" performance.. And it is slightly better...
All in all, what it makes me want to do is sell my 680 and get a 690 if anything..lol..

Everyone have their opinion, for me it is idiotic right now to buy a gtx680 or 7970 or 7950 :)

All I can say is wow, I would not recommend anyone spend on any other high end cards unless it was an enthusiast, we have had these babies in stock for around 1-2 weeks straight before Wizzies review and they've been selling like candy for 499 AUD a pop much more cost effective than any AMD card right now and even a much better deal than the GTX 680. This does not make me regret my 7970 though as a good TPU mate sold it to me with mates rates :).

AMD pricing fail, they need to go back to their bang for buck pricing as the NVIDIA beasts have woken up again.

Amazon only has the ref model in stock now. I live in CA and have to pay tax on newegg, ncix purchases.
You pay tax, as they have warehouses and offices in Cali. Amazon later this year will be starting to collect state taxes from cali soon.
So enjoy a bit without.

Why not look at the EVGA 4GB model, the extra Vram is whats important to run surround on.

Effin' AMD. The GTX 670 is $415cdn, and a few HD 7950 cards are hovering too close to $499cdn... AMD has some MASSIVE price cutting to do. The 7950 is heavily overpriced.

$300 is a bit optimistic $350-$360 maybe.
Considering the 6950 2GB was $300 at launch, i would say realistic.

Now if i see it from the greedy pov of nvidia/amd price inflators, yeah, optimistic.

No, not at all. I was referring to a genuine typo - the 7950 being labelled as 2048M.
