Do you realize you just posted information that (if true) means NVIDIA's second tier chip makes the HD7970 look like a piece of crap?

GTX570s trade benches with 6970s (current ATi flagship part), 7970s (next gen ATi flagship part) are around 40% faster than GTX570s and 6970s.

If the GK104 (NV 2nd tier replacement) is indeed 90-96% faster it's a whopping 50-56% faster than ATi's next gen flagship part! The 7970 will be called BeefDozer Part Deux or Faildozer Rev2 by everyone on the net if you are right.

The GK100 will likely beat a dual gpu 7970, or be close enough to it no one in their right mind would bother CF.

I truly hope you and your post are right, it would be epic news for all gamers if true. The only people who would be sorry to see this come to pass work at AMD.
You are great at making yourself look like a fool. Did you bother to click the link? It's already been proven fake a while ago.
