Default Re: The HD-7700 Does'nt look to good unless it is a rummor

Why are you comparing it to a card that is almost 4 times the price?

It's going to perform better than 6850 in many cases reports are saying (not mem bandwidth limited cases obviously), so in my book, that's a win for $150.

EDIT: didn't see that review above... I wasn't expecting reviews just yet. Looks decent for the mid range card, sometimes neck and neck with 6850 and 5850. Considering it has almost half the memory bandwidth that's a damn impressive feat. It does need to be priced right though, just like the 5770 costing more than the 4870 at launch, but then becoming the better buy after a few months due to price and drivers getting better for it. Drivers will make even more difference here as GCN is a new architecture.
