    I'll wait for a Bit-tech benchtest as the rumours all over the place are either written by fanbois or are just too conflicting to get any sense out of them.

    When will you be getting your hands on them Bit-Tech? "Wink! Wink!, say no more!"

    hum.... eyespeed?!?

    when will they simply put normal displayport on it? i had been looking around, and it seems i need to buy £16 adaptor just to use the normal displayport cable provided by Dell. interestingly, £5 for mini-DP to DP cable.

    This sounds wrong. A far as I know the "XT" moniker betters the "Pro" moniker. Also, Barts is supposed to be the 67xx series.

    Well, I suppose we'll all find out really soon. Isn't there a press conference scheduled for 12 October 2010 or something?

    Some say they do have the ability to use 5 monitors at once, instead of 3... basically, we have too much power and fast hardware for the software ... We need new consoles to see if we can have better graphics :(
    (not counting on poor optimized games like Crysis, Stalker, and Metro2033)

    I find this a lot more dubious than the slides that circulated a couple of weeks ago.

    I'll have one please! Hope the prices on there are competitive... and there's some nice waterblocks available soon. Otherwise I can hopefully pick up a 5870 cheap.

    The way i read it from
    http://www.chiphell.com/thread-128230-1-1.html
    HD 68XX cards will be based on the XT and Pro Barts chips...

    So far XT is the top chip (dont think AMD will rebrand the Hierarchy in their chips)...
    The part of the article where XT is this, Pro is that - is speculation... based on a misread post...

    Indeed, we really need a new game that pushes the existing cards... I have the 4870 too and can play pretty much anything on it hence can't justify spending £300 on a 5870.

    Thats my plan as well. I upgraded my CPU to an i7 920 from an E8400, and got a board with SATA3 and USB3 (Asus P6X58D-E) with the idea to upgrade the graphics at a later date. In theory I have a machine that I won't need to actually upgrade for 5 or more years, with a little overclocking.

    I have a 1Gb 4850 that cost me £75 in july 2009, and thanks to the wonderful world of DX9 console ports (he says in a sarcastic manner)...i have yet to find a game i cant play at very high frame rates with the settings mostly maxed out....

    I have decided i am not going to upgrade my GPU until i know what the requirements are for the only game im interested in 2011....Battlefield 3.

    At £75, the Radeon 4850 is turning out to be the best value Gfx card i have EVER owned.....

    what worries me is that the heatsink vent output is so small... that means that the air circulation will be less and the air itself passing through a smaller whole will produce more noise. They should use 1 connector with ana adapter that split into 2 DVI's instead. Ir an expansion card or something.

    Well picture looks like photoshoped 5970, he, he.

    More seriously. I will wait for reviews and non-reference cooling. Reference VGAs are only for peps going with water cooling.
