I can't be the only one that thinks quoting performance as only 30% over that of a 6970, but almost as fast as a 6990, is a bit odd. I have a hard time believing anything in the article with such a glaring oversight.

Also, flagship or not, $550 is nVidia money. AMD has not done nearly a good enough job with driver support to justify that kind of dough. I was considering dealing my 6970's and going single card this next Gen, but not for that kind of cost. That performance justifies $375 to $400 at most from AMD, with their greatly inferior aftersale support.

The whole article reeks of shoddy journalism, and rumor mongering to me.

Heh, this is the first sensible thing Canonical did in quite some time.

Now all we need is a 6GHz cpu to properly push this new video card at today's PC settings.

I doubt anyone said a couple years back "Hey, let's release a graphics card in January". But release schedules of new hardware, especially when you're changing die sizes, aren't set in stone. The pushed hard for the holiday market, but couldn't get it out in time. That's the way it goes sometimes.

Wow. What idiot at AMD decided to release their flagship product in January?
