Yeah I dont get it why did I spend $500+ on the GTX680? I could have saved money and got the 670 oh well...

it only money LOL

Because, imo, the 680 was always the 670. I think nVidia just pulled a fast marketing stunt with the 680. AMD had a solid product out and mostly available well before nVidia did- yet again. AMD was raking in the profits from the 7900s, just like they did with the 5800s. nVidia had to do something. So they launched a card that was the GTX680 in name only. I'm sure we'll not see any more 680s available for sale, or at least not in great supply. Prepare for a GTX685 instead that'll be much more deserving of such a name and asking price. :)

from what I hear gtx685 wont be out until end of year, so I could not have waited for that one.

But yeah at this point if i was buying a card I would get a gtx 670, especially with the demand of the gtx680 very difficult to get one. i wonder if it will be as difficult to get gtx 670

First of all, the fact, that GK104 is a chip meant for a midrange card was obvious from the beginning.

AMD did not have a solid product at all if it could be beaten by a midrange chip. NV even commented on that and you guys were laughing at them.

NVIDIA sure did use the situation to their advantage, because why not.

I agree that we'll probably see the GTX 680 in a limited supply, because they will be using the fully enabled chips on the GTX 690 for higher profits. The GTX 670 will take its place.

Yeah - why produce a real "680" now when you can drop it later as a 685 or 780 when the 670 is equal to or better than the competition? It's capitalism at it's finest. I think it's awesome that the 670 is so good.

I think I shall get two of these after the pricing debacle that is the 690GTX in AU.

As nice a card as the 670 seems to be I just don't think the performance increase over my 5870 is worth the price of the card. I'll wait till the true next generation of cards from both AMD and nVidia and see what those offer over my 5870. :)

huh? It's pretty much twice as fast as a 5870.

:lol:

I paid $90 for this 5870. For me to get the exact same value out of a new card I'm wanting twice the performance for no more than $180. I could accept nearing $200 including shipping and handling. It is the price delta between what I paid for this 5870 and what the 670 sells for that is deterring me. The performance is there, the price is not. :)

What if your card was free. Then you would have to wait for more free cards. O_O

nVIDIA need to stop horsing around and just show us the damn 685/GK110. They planned this to perfection.

680 release $500 MSRP. $500+ retail due to price inflation based on supply & demand.

Release 670 1344 @ $400 MSRP. $425+ retail due to the card being so close to the 680.

Release 685 23xx @ 500 MSRP. $xxx retail due to performance relative to the 7970 Ghz Edition.

Apparently Newegg didn't get the memo. They've been selling them for $399 from the getgo. Got an overclocked version.... for $399 on the way.

I'm quite certain the GTX670 would not feel like $309 performance increase, if that makes any sense. :)

When I shell out for a new card, I want it to be a night and day difference across the board- performance, temperature, power consumption... I want to see the upgrade in a big way. Hence why I'm not opposed to waiting for another year or so.

Not only that, I'm still extremely satisfied with my 5870's performance. :)

So... A card that is twice as fast, uses less power, and runs cooler than your 5870 isn't a big difference?

Not a $390 difference. Probably over $400 with shipping and tax.

If I gave you an F-350 with all the bells and whistles, but it was a couple years old, yet in mint condition- how long would it take you to purchase a new truck? Especially if the F-350 I gave you did everything you needed with ease? Would you be willing to shell out over $40k in a couple years for a new truck just because it got better gas mileage while producing more horse power and having greater torque?

I've a lot of better things to put that $400 towards right now. I'll get a new card soon enough. When I can get a card along the lines of the GTX670 for right around $200 I'll start considering it. :)

I'd sell the crappy truck and buy something I would want.
