SP and i each have the ASUS 3D display. tviceman is getting the eBay display and the GTX 670
-- and it would be good to have two - one 1080p for S3D and a higher resolution display.
An EVGA GTX 670 FTW went on sale for $339 this weekend where I live but I missed out.
That is a pretty good price for the FTW version. There must be a lot of margin for the partners to cut prices so soon. How much are HD 7950s going for on sale?
--- is the GHz version going to save their pricing?
Supposedly the new Tahiti chips will be running at the 1100mhz speed AND at a lower voltage. So it is possible the power consumption will remain unchanged. An 1100mhz hd7970 should end up, on average, a very scant few percent faster than the gtx680, but at this point it's moot. The majority of hd7970 owners already run their card at 1100mhz or higher. It's just not an exciting product release. It is akin to Intel releasing the i7-2700k. Nobody really cared, the i5-2500k and i7-2600k had already been on the market a long time and the speed bump wasn't noticeable better.
I think the more interesting discussion is the conundrum of what / how Nvidia will be able to do to GK104 to improve it a la GF104 -> GF114. Increasing cores speeds alone results in diminishing returns because of the bandwidth constraints. I don't think they could add and integrate another 64-bit memory controller onto the chip's die in a reasonable time frame that would be expected for a refresh. 7000mhz gddr5 seems like the only viable option, but how abundant is gddr5 @ 7000mhz? Are there any products that even use it and run it at that speed?
