    Those are some mighty impressive numbers. For only being one generation beyond 6XXX series, the increase in theoretical performance and decrease in power consumption are downright amazing.

    Looks like 7000 series will be awesome, if real world performance is anything like the theoretical.

    Looking forward to see the GeForce response!

    The powerconsumption of those cards look really interesting.

    Looks like the only real big change to me is the die shrink, and lower power requirement that is a result. Everything else looks nearly the same across albiet with a slight frequency bump. Same amounts simd, stream processors, rops, texture units, etc. as the 69** / 68** parts.
    I would defineatly wait until the 79** parts hit. Even the 78** parts don't impress me on anything but the lower wattage. Of course there may be some tricks that the numbers don't show that we'll have to wait for the benches to really see.

    7970 over the 6970
    A third more cores
    1GHz core clock (compared to 880MHz)
    8GHz RAM (compared to 5.5GHz)

    All of this for 60W less...

    You are very hard to please!

    I didn't see any 79** parts when I made my reply. Apparently I skimmed over Parge's post and didn't follow the link there. In any case I'm still not impressed with the 78** or less parts. My previous post is still not far off when comparing the 78** parts to what is currently available.

    You make a fair point there, the 78xx's just look like reducing power

    But if AMD ate keeping with their current naming scheme then surely 7800 cards will be the equivalent of the previous 6800 cards, in which case making it a big upgrade. You can't really expect the low-end cards from the next generation to outperform the high-end cards of the previous. Equivalent performance with lower power and prices sounds good to me, anyone wanting more can just go with the higher end 7900s.

    Agreed! A 7850 at £135 (current 6870 pricing) with 6950 speeds is a great deal!

    Hmm, definitely need some prices and a release date on these bunnies. The 7970 looks like it'll be a beast!

    There have been many threads on this back with the release of the 6000 series: you add 100 to the old scheme and replace "X2" with xx90 cards. It fleshes out the x900 range and removes the need for modifers such as "X2" which serve only to complicate things. Each card has its own unique set of four numbers which together describe basic aspects of the card and its relative performance, nothing more nothing less. The transition to this generation is very simple, just add one to the first number.
