    6850 and 6870 will replace the 5750 and 5770 respectively, while the 5850 and 5870 will be replaced by the 6950 and 6970.

    Just in case someone forgets, also for those who didn't notice yet i managed to grab the Metro 2033 benchmark, which can be found in previous page.

    Yes they are, for now. Go to front page and check the links if you get bored by reading a the bit of text i've put after the links. Wait for the servers to stabilize.

    Edit: The articles were removed, however when they're back they will use the same links. Now we have to wait. :/

    Hmm, the guru guy talking about 3d, he seems like an Internet Explorer guy rather than a Firefox guy, a bit too proprietary for my tastes, didn't hear much guru wisdom there...

    The sour: poor call naming 67xx as 68xx

    The sweet: seemingly absolutely everything else.

    remember they are isntantly price dropping the GTX470 and 460's price tho, they're still well competitive.

    6870 and GTX 470 trade blows, hype will be focused on the new AMD product, with immature drivers, rather than the kinda stale GTX470 and it's new price.


    nV should have dropped trau on those cards a week earlier.

    I completely agree. I would argue even two weeks earlier as the hype on the 6xxx series escalated because of nothing coming out of the Nvidia camp until earlier this week. I can only pray that Nvidia can come out with something to keep the price wars going on. If these benchmarks can be believed I can also see Nvidia losing some more customer base pretty quickly. That's as long as prices on the AMD cards don't sky rocket (which they most likely will) because of vendor greed.

    Wow, very impressive to see the 6850 right with the 5850 and beating it sometimes, and the 6870 right on the tail of the 5870, if they are more efficient and better at DX11, they should be fantastic cards!
