Sunday Tech Bits

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.
