If it's coming as early as Q3, I might just go team red and get my free copy of BF4 + bunch of other games in the next "Never Settle" bundle.  I was originally gonna buy GTX 780....but this AMD card really looks nice
 
I really like how AMD turned around their game in the past 1.5 years.  I remember the launch of the 7000 series was somewhat ugly.  No CFX support for 7970 till like 3 months later...the GTX 680 beat it, even though a 680 was a smaller mid range card....I can keep going on and on....but towards the end of 2012, they turn it around with incredible drivers, epic game bundles...just a whole experience if you ask me....Thanks AMD and I'm hoping to see you continue pushing....so I can buy your card...or possibly NV's future offerings due to your competition

    This is good news, thats the means the 780 or any other 700 series card might come down in price cause they will have some competition for them.

    Crap, I just realize that this isn't the new 20nm Volcanic Islands that were rumored a few weeks back...this is actually still the 28nm being used in the 7970....but simply a refresh.  Haha I got too excited and just posted away.  I guess when I saw that 6gb stock I was like WHOA!!
     
    Maybe it will drive down prices of 780 though...but according to the leak, 8970 will be $599....so I dunno if NV might just keep it at $650 since they are close to begin with?

    Seronx already posted, the HD8970 OEM is gonna be 3GB and 6GB.
     
    Can't wait for the 8970 and see what kind of performance its gonna bring to the table.  Q3 is only a few months away but it feels so far.

    Why would AMD sell it cheaper? If it performs close to 780 there is no reson to sell it below 580-600 and then there is no reson to reduce price of 780 either as it actually is sold to cheap already as correct pirce would be around 800:ish when is basicly is a 3GB titan with a few twists but it wont make it a 500-650 card alone.
     
    If both camps can make more money it is just good for them and i could care less for whiners that want sub 500 cards in the x80 or x970 series as that is a thing of the past when the x70 ad x950 belon to that pricerange.

    IF priced lower they will sell more, I think it's a wise move, more sales is also a greater success :P
     
    This will give AMD again the best price/performance ratio, they always succeed here, I might go for the HD 8970 for my secndary build, but never for my main.
     
    Mainly the API package that comes with NVIDIA VGA cards is far more complete compared with AMD, even that AMD can come very a very attractive card themselves, I always adored the image quality Radeons seem to give over GeForce cards, even that this has greatly improved with GeForce cards since the GeForce 600 series.
    The drivers from NVIDIA have always been superior to me also, it would be hard to miss all of this
     
    But for a secondary system, a CFX Radeon HD 8970 setup might still be worth it Since these cards have Tress-FX, HD Video Converting Support, Eye Infinity and other things that makes them different and very appealing.
     
    But so far it would be nice to see the two face to face in a battle, the Titian might be a competition also, that is if AMD's RV1170 XT is that good, it all remains to be seen I guess, but hey 6GB 384Bit GDDR5 is nice tho, that is one nice advantage over GTX 780, more like a competitor for the GTX Titan as specs go
     
    But I think this new card won't be faster than a GTX Titan but I think the GTX 780 has a problem heh. If So it's good to have some competition, that should get the prices lower on both ends.

    HD8970 +35% performance over HD7970 GE? Yeah, goodnight GTX 780 ;)

    Exactly since a GTX 780 was only 27% faster than a GTX 680 which is equivalent to that of a HD 7970 GE rofl.
    So if the HD 8970 is 35% faster than a HD 7970GE, it seems that the HD 8970 will be about 8% faster than the GTX 780 and it's cheaper too, hellp best price performance.
     
    As them numbers go of the HD 8970, this is what I got from Tweakers.net:
    4096 ALU's
    16 SMD's
    4 Geometry Engines
    256 TMU's
    64 ROPS
     
    As the ram goes that would be 4GB or 8GB 512Bit GDDR5, considering the 64 ROPS. 
    http://tweakers.net/nieuw...le-processorcores.html
    If that is all true, well even GTX Titan has a major problem rofl, getting all that for 500 a 600 Euro's I'd pay that any time then But hay it's all rumors so please don't take an of this serious xD It's only possible, it does not mean it will happen right
     
    It also seems they got their info from ChipHell also rofl, oh well let the rumors roll I'd say haha Here we go again xDDDD

    The 8970 is going to be a big competitor against the 780 because of the 6GB of VRAM.  If the 8970 really is 35% faster than the 7970 GHz edition and comes priced even around say $599, NVIDIA is going to have to respond either with a 6GB model or a significant price drop.
     
    In my opinion, the 8000 series looks good to keep competition within the GPU market, but it will ultimately depend on how they're priced.

    Yeah I'm thinking this as well....but I hear 6gb will be reserved for Titan only?  We'll see though, NV gotta stay on their toes to be competitive :D
     
    Also if they don't come out with a 6gb...then I'm sure they will drop the price of the 780 from $650 to $550 maybe....cuz an 8970 at $600 and 35% faster than 7970GHZ...that 35% is definitely faster than a 780.

    The big thing is whether or not AMD prices competitively or just matches the 780 price.  If they price the 8970 at $650, you can pretty much guarantee NVIDIA will not drop their prices at all.  However at $599 or less, NVIDIA might have to take some type of action to stay competitive.

    If those specs are true and AMD price 8970 at $599 or less and have BF4 and couple other games for free, it would be a good deal.

    I know BF4 is officially confirmed to be part of the next never settle bundle.  I'm sure they will have more quality AAA added to the list.  Possibly Saints Row 4?  I know the 3rd one was an AMD game....or maybe the new Ubisoft game, Watch Dogs?

    Sure they sell more, but simular performance, simular price. Then no need to go sub 600 when price is correct between the cards and those that are elcheapos have other cards to buy as both camps needs the price to be a bit higher a while to refill the bankaccount after unhealthy pricewar that only benefit the cheap buyers that want things cheap rather than keep the brand on the market.

     
    The only reason Nvidia is raping its customers over the coals with the 700 series is because they currently don't have any competition. Had AMD been able to release the 8K series much much sooner, and if it's able to match or beat the 780's performance then we would see a totally different price for the 700 series cards.  Competition drives down prices plain and simple. Without that you get exactly what were seeing now, cards worth at most $500 going for 25%+ more in sticker price simply because Nvidia knows people will pay it.

    I say that too, I don't think to buy them again. 
    I would feel like looser somehow and problematic species...
    But their card can drop NVIDIA for 50-70$, nothing more.

    The 8970 is going to be a big competitor against the 780 because of the 6GB of VRAM.  If the 8970 really is 35% faster than the 7970 GHz edition and comes priced even around say $599, NVIDIA is going to have to respond either with a 6GB model or a significant price drop.

    In my opinion, the 8000 series looks good to keep competition within the GPU market, but it will ultimately depend on how they're priced.


    Yeah I'm thinking this as well....but I hear 6gb will be reserved for Titan only?  We'll see though, NV gotta stay on their toes to be competitive :D

    Also if they don't come out with a 6gb...then I'm sure they will drop the price of the 780 from $650 to $550 maybe....cuz an 8970 at $600 and 35% faster than 7970GHZ...that 35% is definitely faster than a 780.

    that 35% will make it also faster than a Titan since that Titan is about 5% faster than a GTX 780 overall rofl, this would make the HD 8970 about 3% faster than a Titan which I do believe is possible, it is newer tech than Titan so I think AMD has a chance here and then pricing it at like 550 Euro's it's gonna be a steal for your money too.
     
    I prefer best price/performance any day not everyone is rich so even if AMD would price this card at 480 euro's it would be a WIN for the entire crowd. I am for one against capitalism and imo NVIDIA has too much of it.  Only the TDP is always a big thing questioned I think NVIDIA still wins the lowest TDP grounds.

    Why would AMD sell it cheaper? If it performs close to 780 there is no reson to sell it below 580-600 and then there is no reson to reduce price of 780 either as it actually is sold to cheap already as correct pirce would be around 800:ish when is basicly is a 3GB titan with a few twists but it wont make it a 500-650 card alone.

    If both camps can make more money it is just good for them and i could care less for whiners that want sub 500 cards in the x80 or x970 series as that is a thing of the past when the x70 ad x950 belon to that pricerange.

    $349 and $499 are magical numbers. The market gets a lot more scarce above that. Nvidia is playing with fire by messing with that convention. AMD hasn't quite lost their minds enough to humor Nvidia yet. You go above those numbers and AMD makes less money not more because of market size willing to go there.
     
    Personally, I have a 7970 3GB. The only thing that appeals to me about the new card is the 6GB vram. Not sure if that'll get me to sell and trade up to the new card later this year though. As is the 7970 does everything I require of it.

    The 349 and 499 is all in customers head, elchepos and those that got comfort with that price after previous series, but now this is out the window and there is no reson for buyers to cry and moan about prices, that only tell you that they dont belon to the target for that card in question.
    If that mean that those previously bougt 680 and are custom to buy the "highend" now is belong to the next card in line, the 770 and lower so be it. 700 sewries is nothing like the older ones, perhaps 800 will be simular to older but who knows.
    So what if some buyers have to settle with a lower card than expected, thats life if you are not willing to pay up what the card cost.

    When 8970 basicly looks like a 7970 6GB you would do the right thing to be sceptical to the 8970.

    Well Said sir! You understand how the system works. NVIDIA is laughing because they earned 2000 USD / 1515 Eur rofl, which is cheap if it would be in Euro's, over here a Titan costs 950 Eur each making a total of 1900 Euro's or say 2508 USD...  Even that the value of the hardware is less than 150 USD / 114 Eur
     
    As the Titan goes it's nothing special VGA card wise I have had over 550+ High end VGA cards since 1994 and seen much rarer and special things out there. The Titan is a beast still but it's not worth 950 Euro's not even close to that I would be surprised that the Radeon HD 8970 is faster than the Titan and even 300 - 350 Eur cheaper, I have seen Radeons always get the best price performance even outclassing all the NVIDIA counterparts. The Radeon 9700 Pro, X800 XT Platinum Edition & X1900 XTX are very good examples And I have all three still at home since these three are revolutionary designs that really changed the face of 3D graphics on the PC market.
     
    Same that the GeForce3, GeForce 6800 Ultra & GeForce 8800 GTX/Ultra that were for NVIDIA, their GTX 480 was also a great revolution introducing DX11
     
    Anyways NVIDIA has lots of money, they have enough money to Sell a very high priced VGA card, they know it will sell for 950 Euro's so they are not crazy to lower it's price, if they can get 1100 Euro's for a VGA card they will do it.
    Same as Intel does for their Xeon's I can get 2 to 3 16 core Opterons for the same price as one Xeon but still beating the lights of that Xeons for the same price.
     
    Anyways This is a great disadvantage when rich money comes to play, the ones with lesser money always have to pay the harder price, most people that use PC's only buy what they can afford which is obvious, most prefer best price/performance per watt, AMD has always had a leading market in that range, most people I know even use Radeons due to their greater price/performance values.
    Since the Crisis is only making such things even more expensive due to the higher taxes we have to pay< it oo look forward to the best price performance, the reason why I got two 680's is because I bought them for less than the price of a 670 ;), Otherwise I would of kept my HD 6990.
     
    And hey it's all cool that people can afford 2000 EUR/USD+ for their VGA cards, but for me, I prefer to buy two 16 core Opteron 6380's a Supermicro H8DG6-F server motherboard and 4x 8GB DDR3-1600 ECC Reg for that money, much more use to me as such money would lead, each to their own needs I'd say. The EVGA GTX 680 SC Sigs I have now will do me lots of good for quite some time, thanks to that great deal to which I got them for.

    So what? titan is the only thing that fit my needs for vram and 780 fail to do so as well as my old 580 3GB:s.
    IF AMD was quicker i would gladly give them the money IF they could perform consistanly, beeing a real compeditor to Nvidia unlike they been now when they steped down from compete on the singleGPU side with best singelGPU to rely on multiGPU to get the job done.
    I am not the user that always has to get the most out of my money, i buy what i need even if it is expensive and not realy in my budget unless i prioritize.
    So what if enthusiastlevel jumps to 650 and mid-range tops out at 499. No big deal, you just buy the card that fit your wallet without expect you can get the topdog for 500 or badest mid-range for 350. The old way 349/499 is out the window for now, we just have to deal with it and buy what we can afford and the cheap dollar dont help either to maintain lower prices when the conversion usualy is 1:1 so i always pay 25-30% more than you in US but i never cry about it. There aint a big loss for neither camp to loose a few highendsales when their mainsale is midrange/lowrange.
    Thing is most people i seen that cry about prices (on 780 to take one exampel) are mostly kids or student that expect to mutch after cheap mainstream GPU-GTX680 even when it from the start indicated the low price would never ever happens unless it was on finalsale before EOL. NOTHING give you the right to complaing about prices when it was known from the start 780 was going to be way over 499 and 770 most likely end up same as 680 or that range. Adults just suck it up and revice ther priorities or buy a different card.
    I am not condacending , thats just the way you see it because i could not care less about price/performance that never plays out right.
    Sure titan is not a great purchas, but it fits my needs and isthe only card that do so and i can spare 2000EUR.
    IF AMD can squeze 35%+ out of the old 7970 to rebadge it as 8970 i dont realy care until AMD prove its multiGPU aint the mother of all MS like ASUS ARES2 was in reviews and i kind of feel it wont happens anytime soon.
    To me that is worth more than money.
    I pay premium to get things month in advanced so i dont feel cheaded or think it is overpriced when 780 aint the same card or has the same skills.

    Why would AMD sell it cheaper?
    ...
    If both camps can make more money it is just good for them and i could care less for whiners that want sub 500 cards in the x80 or x970 series as that is a thing of the past when the x70 ad x950 belon to that pricerange.
    It highly depends on the economic environment and what both companies know about each other since they both have paid rumor-hunters known as "market analysts".  If the deFacto-recession is still evident then only the wealthy act immune to economic woes, thus prices will stay high to milk them.  These companies wouldn't be interested in those that want the best and can't afford it, thus not listening to their complaints, they do only pay attention to sales threats.
     
    Back in the summer of 2008, just about every rumor available suggested that HD4870 would have 480-stream processors and planned a $300 MSP, so nVidia pricing GTX280 at $650 just justified; but somehow AMD kept the secret that it actually had 800-sp and performed within 17% of GTX280 and a price war ensued.  Within a month, both companies adjusted priced so they averaged in the middle $400 range.
     
    I don't know if AMD knew what they were doing back then, maybe they expected too much from nVidia, certain nVidia didn't have the best information in price planning.  AMD has been late twice now, before with HD2000 and now with HD7000's successor; but before it was a continual delay, that was why 8800GTX didn't debut higher than $600, they felt AMD could come anytime.  With Titan, they knew AMD wouldn't be able, hence price.  But I'd wager with GTX780 perhaps nVidia feels AMD could come anytime...
     
    If HD7970's successor performed too slow for the cost they charge against GTX780, then they would drop prices, but I don't think nVidia would react unless AMD dropped prices too far which I don't think AMD would risk it in this economy.  They need every dollar/euro of whatever.  It is why their OEMs were just rebrands, cheaper than bringing a new series.

    IF priced lower they will sell more, I think it's a wise move, more sales is also a greater success :P 
    No company wants to spend more resources just to get more products into people's hands, they want to make money, even if that means not selling many items while keeping a high margin.  Remember, competition is good for us, not the companies.  nVidia is sitting pretty because AMD isn't in the picture, we don't know what AMD's move will be, they can either keep the price up (i.e. HD7990 took the same range as GTX690 instead of bringing that price down to historic dual-GPU prices) or start a price war (i.e. HD4870 versus GTX280).   
    RuffeDK 
    HD8970 +35% performance over HD7970 GE? Yeah, goodnight GTX 780 ;)
    My concern is power consumption, what can AMD get away with?
     
    nVidia improved Fermi from GTX480 to GXT580 at the same 40nm by increasing one cluster count and raising the frequencies of both GPU and Vram, yet cutting 6W of power; therefore I doubt AMD has been sitting on their hands improving HD7970.  If the performance of GTX580 was raised to match the power levels of GTX480, it would be just under 20% faster.   So hypothetically, if AMD repeated nVidia's success at 28nm from HD7970, then the successor could be 20% faster at the same wattage level, but 35% would push it towards 275W or more.
     
    It could use and dissipate more wattage (which leads to higher temps and more noise) just to match GTX780 in performance, not very green.  Hopefully the gap between HD7970's successor and GTX780 will close from HD7970 and GTX680, but it depends on how AMD rewired everything.
    ledzppln6
    The 8970 is going to be a big competitor against the 780 because of the 6GB of VRAM. 
    HD7970 had 3GB, what did it compete with, the 3GB GTX580?  If it wasn't for the GHz edition, GTX680 still beat HD7970 despite having access to a higher memory bandwidth and more Vram.  Remember, performance is in the GPU core; Vram doesn't affect frame rates much, evident by how close Titan is to GTX780 in single-display gaming.  But what do most gamers use?  Single-display, so ultimately the 6GB model is marketing for their EyeFinity capability up to 6-displays, which just makes it funny since even though Sapphire made a 6GB HD7970 and performance improvement with modern games even with six 1080p displays was about 16% better.  That is 12.4 MegaPixels equivalent to ; certain more cards would be needed for higher frame rates, but clearly one doesn't need 6GB for those games.
     
    Especially through EVGA's Step-up Program and CS/TS, very few of us will get the next AMD card, so we are banking on the majority of non-loyal to speak with their wallets and make nVidia drop GTX780 prices by a tad.  If not enough threaten nVidia's sales, considering how long nVidia has been by themselves, then there will be no price drop.

    How can overclocking affect CPU lifespan? - TEC/Peltier definitions, formulas and temperature estimations

     
    For Intel processors, 0.122 x TDP = Continuous Amps at 12v [source].  
     
    NOTE: TDP stands for Thermal Design Power; it is neither minimum for operation, actual per CPU,nor grammar to be added whenever referring to wattage.  It is only a rating category intended for OEMs and useless from an enthusiasts perspective.

    All I can say is that 95% of the PC builders always go for best price/performance over worst price/performance, this is AMD's goal as they also dropped all their high end Desktop PC, they are doing very well in the APU market even beating Intel on many deals, they offer more for less money the same with their Radeon class cards as their single chip cards go, the HD 7990 was only made to take on the GTX 690, to which it successfully does take on quite well, thanks to the latest driver fix the HD 7990 mostly beats the GTX 690 in all games.
     
    It's even priced lower than a GTX 690 it also has 1GB VRAM per chip more and a wider bus, but hey no CUDA no APEX , it does not have all those things but it does offer the user 5x 2560 x 1600 and HD 3D support something NVIDIA can't do yet, as they are always limited to 3 screens for 3D.
     
    Best Price/performance shall always be the buyers main goal and I am quite sure AMD knows what their clients want, ATi always worked like this in the past as I have been using their hardware since 1994, even before 3dfx became famous.
     
    Yes companies want to earn money from their items but selling items at over priced amounts will get them less income, and a company as AMD also has much less money than NVIDIA, they have to play it smart to win more buyers and I have to admit they have done this all too well.
     
    I envy all types of VGA cards really I collect VGA cards of all sorts, so no need to see me as some ATi fanboy, I am a VGA card fan of all sorts, if you prefer to see me that way
     
    See for yourself:

    It's that I am amazed how AMD has pulled on through throughout all these hard times, going for best price/performance is just a simple and smart move, nothing big to it.

    As things are looking now, well I just know that I will be going for a pair of HD 8970's for my next build. that is if they are priced under the 550 Euro mark, which is O'Plenty for any high end VGA card.
     
    Remember that the GTX 295 & HD 4870 X2, that these were about 539 EUR when released? They weren't 1000 euro's, why does an Dual chip card cost over 1000 Euro's all of a sudden?
     
    Anyways if AMD would aim their high end single card under 550 Euro's, this would be a very good strategic move for AMD for their top end Single chip VGA card. It will attract a much larger crowd and they will sell more and earn ore in the end. the Radeon 9700 Pro was a very good example.

    ATi did this and look at where are they now, gone, bought out by another company, AMD.
     
    What AMD does is indeed good for the consumer, but not for themselves. They are bleeding cash flow every second and surviving on market worth. All the promo games they bundle also means they are paying the publisher large amounts of cash. AMD has been in the red for the last few quarter earnings and predicted to be in the red at the next quarterly earnings report.
     
    Lucky for them, Nvidia's high pricing actually allows AMD to price their products higher.
     
    Now it's a matter of will AMD release another product with very aggressive pricepoint to prove they are for the consumer or they will price accordingly so their balance sheets aren't hurting so much. I'm assuming the latter will happen.

    Yeah true that , but yeah I have to admit NVIDIA's driver team is really good, something I have not seen from AMD yet. even i hear they have been improving on their grounds. Overall I'd go for the GTX780, or Titan if they get affordable, just due to the greater API package you get, I can't miss CUDA to be honest

    And I hope I win the lottery.  Neither will happen in this or any other parallel universe.
