I agree too, but if running on a single monitor i wouldn't think there's any need to upgrade period, as current high end hardware from both brands is more than fast enough to drive just a single display, unless you go for crazy levels of AA on the latest games and/or use 3D glasses and 120 Hz monitors, wich will require the card to kick out FPS values always above 120 Fps for best experience(60 per eye).


I have 3 displays too, and play a lot of BF3 so 3 HD7970's?....Oh hell yeah..

There's plenty of games I'm holding off on playing until I get a 7970 and I'm only using 1920x1200. I'm sure a 580 would play these games fine, but something faster will surely hold me over better for the future. I probably won't buy another gpu until the next gen consoles have been out for a 6-12 months. Also, there's always SSAA for those games that just perform too well

i am getting mine cause while i can play certain games fine. i like to up the AA a bit, especially for bf3, i cant use MSAA and the FXAA or fake aa thing it has makes distance stuff all blurry making it a bit difficult to hit people who are next to trees/etc...

is true tho...a lot of power in these gpu's but none of it will be used up properly..which is kinda sad..and i am not ready just yet for multi monitor system

Since these cards still have the dual bios feature of the HD6900 series, and like you i'll be water cooling them ASAP, you know in what position that switch will be set to as a starting point...

That's not very exciting. That's (dare I say it?) almost Bulldozer-ish. Sounds like a card destined to wear the single GPU crown a very short time.

Replacement in the wings? Like the X1800>X1900 fiasco? When will ATi learn?

I wouldn't say it is anywhere near that bad. I thought it was quite well laid out. After all at this stage it is all just rumors about the 7 series cards. ATI haven't released any concrete specs that I have seen. We will find out soon enough though.

Got any proper links to sites for these. I'm using my phone and I'm not downloading anything from there.
