Default What is expected of the new 5-series from AMD?

Were there any details leaked about these new cards? I'm looking forward to getting one before the holidays. My current card is an 8800GT so I'm 100% sure any of the 5-series cards will kick my card to shreads

My System Specs


I would assume the cards would be DX11 compatible. Other then that I haven't heard any info at all.

Um, anything thats on the internet about the 5xxx series is pure speculation and nothing can be confirmed until the release.

One thing is sure though, it WILL smoke your 8800gt.

That's awesome! I hope the week of release they have reasonable prices... Can anyone remember the prices of the 4-series HD4850 when it came out?
