I've seen them in the BSTs for far less than that already.

I doubt it.... somebody had one up for $225 on here and it stayed up for a day or so.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it though, that's the nature of the beast.

Pretty much exactly what I expected, performance heat and power wise. They were not going to pull any miracles with the same tech as the last generation. Going to have to have a die shrink before any of the 2 makers can up their flagship card. Not that I'm disappointed, far from it. You can get 2 of these for the price of a Titan.

I beg to differ. This is exactly where pricing has been for a flagship card for the last 15 years. Dual GPU and other specialty cards aside. nVidia did the jump with the Titan and 7xx series, and I jumped ship.

Anyhoo, I got my 2-7970's and waterblocks a couple weeks ago for $700, they still out perform a single 290x by a fair margin. I'll stick with these until the next gen.

I'm also hoping someone hacks the new g-sync tech to work with ATI, just like they did with lightboost, and I bet you someone will. God bless the Neckbeards and eff you proprietary tech.

Well hopefully this brings things back to some sort of reason. The Titan pricing was just ridiculous, but by pricing them at $1000, they made the 780s seem reasonably when they actually weren't.

I'm glad ATI is doing their part to push the prices in the segment back down.

I tend to agree WRT this hopefully bringing down pricing on flagship cards. Used to be that $500 would get you the retail version of single core flagship cards and then the double GPU cards would be in the $600+ range. Now we're lucky if the second tier cards (where the real money probably is) can be had for less than $400.

Yes, would be nice if they could rustle Intel's jimmies a bit more in the CPU arena too. But that's another topic.

Which doesn't make a lick of sense. A 770 is virtually identical to a 680 and those aren't being sold for less than 350.

Heh... that may be so, but the reality seems to suggest that sense doesn't necessarily play into it. :)

Heh... that's mostly the way I feel as well, however I'm not disinclined to offer to sell at low prices if I know that those prices are what the market is currently offering. I'd much rather see my older (yet still viable) hardware going to somebody who's just starting out but who would appreciate a deal on the kit than to see it either rot on the shelf, or be used for some menial task it's not suited for.

That said.... I'll take the kit outside and feed it through the snow blower before I'll give it away to some lowball flipper...... ;)

On that note... I probably shouldn't be taking Skymtl's review comment thread this far off topic..... ;)
