Â£500 seems way off - unless stock is so limited that they know they can charge this.
I apologise for having different standards to you .
So it's £300 better than a GTX 470 then?
GTX 485. U.U
So is this card 4 x better than a GTX460 (Quad SLI) or would they not scale as well?
I'm looking forward to seeing how this card performs, at that price it will have to be something special.
Blah blah blah just show me the Benchmarks and .......
can it cook a steak like the GTX 480? Plus Winter time is coming so I might want two of these to heat my house with.
Besides the GTX 460 X2 sounds so much more appealing and performs way better than a GTX 480 that I can't see a GTX 580 with 20% gain over a GTX 480 beating a GTX 460 x2unless Nvidia pulls a dick move and doesn't release or gimps the gtx 460 x2
LOL they have houses in the milky way galaxy ???
I love sausages.
Yeah thats we have heard
Sure they have houses in the Milky Way Galaxy. I'm surprised you didn't know that but then again most education systems suck. Here's some good reading between games.
No houses there and what is this education thing you speak off.
Actually, it was a valid point that Apple were going for gimmicks in response from positive reviews about the windows phone 7. I don't own a windows phone 7.
The point was every ATi or Nvidia release comnes out with what I posted. Usually from ATi fans gloating at the 5870, which is a very good card.
If you are a follower of my posts, I'm more than happy to send you a signed photo and a t-shirt or something. You only had to ask!
But the price isn't confirmed yet, neither is the price for the 6970 or whatever ATi will be putting up against this. So until we know how much it's going to cost, I don't think you can get too upset.
that better be a long sausage.. don't you guys call them bangers? and then make that john cleese face confusing everyone as to what your talking about.. but seriously, nvidia has been doing this since the 8800gtx- they price the top card outrageous every release
I don't see how they can do it anymore with ati actually having cards out.. but whatever =]
Hmmm. If that price is right then this must have some serious Fermi / GPU-compute grunt otherwise it's going to sit on the shelves. How is Nvidia's cashflow these days anyways??
im happy with 460 dropping below $180CAD with MIR..... thats what my 22" can squeeze anyway
But can it run Minecraft?
You're just trying to make this about brands, aren't you? You'll notice I made no comparison to the 6970, nor any other next generation AMD card. Merely stated that at £500 inc VAT, which was on the official ASUS website, it will require some damn good performance to maintain a price to performance ratio which is in line with current generation offerings from both parties which closest match its price.
As for my own opinion, a card that expensive doesn't have to worry about the opposing brand so much. The biggest threat will be what we're seeing with the current generation: two midrange cards in SLI/CF. The 5970 saw it with 2x5850s and the GTX480s sees it with 2xGTX460. With the increase in support and scaling for SLI/CF we begin to see an increased need for decent price to performance ratios in the high end market, even when comparing cards of the same brand.
