lol they took it down. But it's now clear why the 470 is getting a price drop
if anyone's interested (and didn't get to see it himself), I copy/pasted the conclusion
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.
We can't wait to get our grubby little paws on that one
Annd some of us too.Man 2 6870s in cf will be around 5970 performance.Makes me wonder what the 6970 is like.....
Guru3d has crossfire review up.....On the front page.Dang it does the same thing ,,Looks like a late night reading.
HD6850 189 USD
HD6870 249 USD

Don't worry if the link isn't working, it's because the servers are being overloaded, so please be patient and stop pressing F5.
Links are dead.
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. :/
yep just read it on the forums one guy broke nda...

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.
He broke the NDA. What a dumbass.
Not too impressed with the sage-like insight of the "guru" either?
I believe this is Dirt 2
Is it ok to post pic ? and yes i mean omg can't he get a clock right
what time does the NDA expire? I'm at 11pm Paris time meow
If those are remotely accurate then Nvidia is cooked.
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.
Looks like my i'll be sticking with my 470 for a good while according to those.
Really need to see some more bechies though..
Dude the 6950/70 is going to be epic if these charts are real.
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.
Again (since it's working, slowly)

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!
LoL. I can't say more than that.
