My System Specs


Really great news for AMD, and I'm sure it's a welcome change from the doom and gloom we've been hearing from them lately. It'll be interesting to see how the lower end cards stack up and/or Crossfire.

So if my quick check online is any indication the 7970 seems to be $50+ less expensive than a 680? That's a massive gap, and if the results work their way down the line should put some pressure on Nvidia to draw back from their (too expensive IMO) current pricing scheme.
