Well if those prices are right, I think they are because the guy who bought one in the German thread that was linked said he got 2 for 600 Euro, it would explain why the performance of the 6970 seems lackluster compared to the 570/580. Maybe this is a repeat of the 4xxx series were AMD/ATi didn't go after the high end market (though performance of the 6990 remains to be seen).

Nope. Just everything else in life preventing me from focusing much time upon this review. I've had the cards for the better part of a week.

Prelim numbers look kinda disappointing, but it will really depend on the price to deterine if theyre a good "bang for your buck" value yet. Im hoping the numbers aren't good yet due to bad drivers... don't think ill be running to get one of these though (although i might get two if their crossfire numbers are good enough). Guess I'm waiting till January for the 6990 (which i hope will be based off two 6970s and not 6950s).

Ooooo....sexy backplate! They even posted them will full specs and everything! Pricing for the 6970 is on par with the GTX 570 so i'm curious to see how this pans out tomorrow.
