I think I will be sticking to my 580 GTX for a while.

Add your links to this thread and dicuss

Given it's price I would have expected it to more firmly beat the 580, which while it does it's not quite what I was expecting. A ~50% increase over a 6970 is pretty darn good however and I think it would be a nice increase over a 6970.

However given that a slightly oc'd 580 is probably withing 10% of the 7970 I'd wait to see what Nvidia is going to offer before buying one.

I had hoped that the 7970 would offer more robust performance gains. But bearing in mind this 7970 with GCN is a new architecture etc, coupled with driver optimization/efficiencies gained in the next few versions of the drivers the gains, will probably go up.

Wait and see for me I guess

Any reviews of Crossfire performance. That is what i'm really interested in. All I have read so far is single card solutions.

Hmm forgot all about crossfire. If the CFX performance is great I might get one. :p

given the limited number of card, i'm guessing XFire will be next month for reviews.

But I'll wait for Keplar

This is where I think it will really do well, especially in Eyefinity.

gtx580 or hd7970?

Just wait a little bit longer and see what price the 7970 comes in at. I have heard $550US, but hopefully cheaper. It looks to be a pretty descent performer.
