I dunno, I've got mixed feelings about these cards. Still waiting to see how they pan out once regular folk have them. Just not seeing anything I care to upgrade to.

Errrr...yes.....I'm very worried about the launch of these video cards.....and....ummm....you've got me on the ropes...ATi's great triumph on the 9th will probably put me in a month long depression...ahhhh...yeah.

So what's the theme of the big dance next week, little buddy? "Born This Way" or "Party Rock Anthem"? Think you and your crew will be able to sneak some liquor out of dad's cabinet, maybe get someone to buy you guys a pack of smokes?

On topic, always good to see new high end parts. Hopefully they don't price gouge too much given the length of time since new parts launched.

You seem to be worried, you keep bashing them left and right in this thread.

You seriously think I'm "worried" about the 7970?

So what do you think would happen in my life if the 7970 were the most successful card of all time?

Judging by the amount of posts where you clearly and repeatedly stated your opinion, and we have no need to read the same crap for the 50th time, and it's from someone who receives free hardware from Nvidia so you're not exactly credible here, i think you're trying to do some serious damage control like a good nvidia soldier, and finding every possible method imaginable to sway others not to buy the HD7970 and wait for the miracle Kepler card...Did Nvidia promise you more free hardware depending on the job you're doing or something?...

So then why are you even posting in this thread? Nothing you have said is positive about the 7970.

They're not worth the price imo. I'll have to see what nvidia comes out with, but another $400 580 looks good to me right about now.

You weren't. You've just taken it upon yourself to flame NVIDIA and anyone supporting them any chance you see, and promote ATi.

The 7970s are an evolutionary advance over December 2010, along the same lines as a "Ultra" version of the GTX580 level of performance. Yet you and some others act like they're the next 9700Pro or 8800GTX.

What's interesting is that all the reviews of the 7970 show the same level of performance difference between the GTX580 and the 6970, and the GTX580 and the 7970. For the last year you've told us about how the difference in performance between the 6970 and the GTX580 is "meaningless" and "not worth paying more money for".

Yet now you are telling everyone the very same difference in performance is "amazing" and "well worth paying for".

If this card would have launched December 2010 and been the highest price card, all I could have said is "Yep, it's worth it. Only reason anyone has to buy a GTX580 is if they want the 3d or PhysX".

But it's launching in January 2012, so all I can say is "This card is likely to be trumped very soon by a similarly priced card that will likely offer at least a similar level of higher performance and the better 3d and PhysX.".

So it's a good card, but not at early adopter etailer gouger prices, but at the price it will settle into when Kepler launches and forces it's pricing where it belongs in the pricing structure of 2012.
