Default Re: Official Radeon 7970 Review and discussion thread

Poor Roadhog. Only posts misinformation,can't build up any credibility. ATI soft launched the 5870 late Sept. 2009, then it was a phantom edition card for the rest of the year. NVidia launched The Gtx480 in March2010, and the 580 in November 2010, 6 & 14 months later respectively. (two years? did you start following this stuff last week?) Of course your lies and errors miss the point that the 480 is the same generation part as the 5870, not the 580 which was a refresh part competing with 6970. Nvidia had the faster part both generations. They will this time as well, people should really think twice about buying a short term leader like the 7970. I'd be pretty pissed off if I spent big bucks on a 7970 and Nvidia flattens it in a couple months...
