Default Re: ATi 7000 series delayed till Q1 2012

Good to see a full slot exhaust vent back, no need for dual DVI these days IMO. Also nice that they made the fan larger and changed the blades, hopefully it's a fair bit quieter... my 5870 is quiet enough at stock clocks but my case fans are pretty loud so any improvement will be more than welcome when I switch to a new case or quieter fans down the road.

Pretty sure I'll be buying one of these come january... CPU bottlenecks are overstated
