>HD 7970 will be in the range of 539-549 Euro

>1 Euro = 1.35CAD approx.

>$700+

well, uh, huh. That card better absolutely destroy everything.

Edit: I also see other "hardware" sites leaking details that the card is going to be more in the $400US range. Looks like everyone is just making numbers up.

Warning!!! Obvious post.

The card's pricing will be representative of its performance against the competition's product stack.

^^Exactly. That's why I posted a rumor price leak. Could be an indicator of what is to come (or it could be more useless info that fills the internet around every corner).

I can at least guarantee you its going to cost you money

Also, remember all they are doing is announcing the card skus. So that essentially means what cards they are and potentially their cost, not when we'll see them at retailers. Remember BD was announced/priced a lot earlier then when they made it to retailers (*cough* delay *cough)

I have always been a team green guy. That is why I am hoping these bring the prices on GTX 580's down a bit. Really liking the extra vram on these though. I think that may help with my current plan of expanding to three monitors in the near future.

dumb question but will the 7970 be a dual gpu? hard to imagine that they'll cost that much under one gpu.

The xx90 (do we call that a suffix?) is usually synonymous with the Dual GPU monkier. In this case it will likely be the 7990.

I thought I'd share this. I noticed it on this website early this morning but now it's gone.
