Default Re: Are you going to buy Fermi?

As the owner of a pair of HD5970's since last november,the obvious answer is no of course.

I got enough problems actually extracting all the performance on the cards as it is,since i am using a single i7 920 CPU clocked at 4Ghz,trying to keep 4 of these GPU's busy,and it simply isn't enough,even though the performance is already impressive as it is.

So next up for me is when Intel release a more affordable version of the 6 core gulftown processor,which rumours suggest is coming in Q3,supposedly it'll be called the i7 970 processor with a locked multiplier and running at 3.2Ghz by default....Hopefully it'll cost around 600$,roughly the same as the current i7 960 processor.
