yes, but the cards are made there. question is how much overhead are we looking at, over here?

400 at the egg or ncix for the 6970 is not that bad, although the gtx 570 is 50-75 bucks away, and that hurts.

i dont really see the 6950 equaling or beating the 570, except in power figures.

Well look at them as ball park figures, I doubt they would be much higher, maybe 449 and 349. Guess we will find out once the NDA is lifted.

they haven't sent you cards yet? i thought you'd get them by friday max, now were tuesday. you got to let me know which tool keeps them in a warehouse before applying the ok stamp for ups to get to your place man. they gave me bs before, went there in person a few times, problem solved.

right. so far, unless its those crippled or prerelease drivers, doesn't look extremely very good, price/performance.

Well hopefully with proper drivers and not the 10.11's the 69xx cards improve, or at least are more competitively priced. Maybe 399 and 299.

i knew something was coming at the 350 price level, hell even the devil itself knew lol, but at the time there were only the 4 series nv cards out, and only early es cards around, if any, and those bogged down mhz wise.

Whoah,
granted this is coming from FUD, but prices could be in the Sub 300 Euro level, so..... would make it roughly 32-330CAD for the 6970....


Take it for what its worth, and we wont know until the NDA expires whenever it does..... but that would be an amazing deal if true.
