for those who haven't been keeping up, earlier today a korean site leaked a bunch of pics of an engineering sample of what is supposedly AMD's new flagship card:



the number of memory modules seemed to confirm a 512-bit bus, a major milestone on its own.

a few minutes ago, the same site published these benchmarks:









go here for the rest: http://translate.google.com/translat...%2F539&act=url

bear in mind this could all be hit-driving horseshit and an ES doesn't necessarily represent final performance, but it'd be a major coup if AMD have managed to pull this off. either way, we'll find out on wednesday when AMD showcase their new GPU range through a webcast at 3pm EDT.

If it's $600 then the gtx 780 just got kicked in the nuts.

rumours put it at a sub $600 price point, but that was when estimations of its performance were much more conservative.

If these findings hold true, then I have found myself a new card. Bring it on AMD! $1000 for a Titan is an absolute joke.

GTX 780 is $1000 here, Titan is $1800. 7970 launched at $650, if they can launch this between $650 and $750 I'll get one for sure.

I believe the 7970 launched at 550 usd. If these benches are true, it would be pretty amazing performance, given what AMD has stated about die size and same lithography.

512 bit memory bus is expensive to implement. They must have really wanted that performance crown.

I would be interested in this if my OC'd 7970ghz weren't such a baller card. It's nice that it's used in those benchmarks.

I can wait for 20nm. Still, I'm pretty amazed at these results. Hopefully the card isn't too expensive if any of this is true.

Was shocked as well. I'm guessing all the units and graphics for explosions and bullet particles, etc kill the frames. Still surprising though.

Can't wait to see the official reveal, benchmarks, and pricing. Havn't owned an ATI card since 9800 Pro back in the days. I am on the fence between upgrading video card or just grabbing a PS4 as long as my i5 2500k is up to the task and not bottlenecked.

If this is around $500, I will get this for my HTPC. But, it looks like it's longer than the Titan though and that barely fits in my case now. Had to do some cutting to the frame.

Yeah I've got a measly low profile 1 gig card in my htpc right now because no way can I fit anything larger. I have my 7950 on my desktop so I want to migrate that into the htpc but like u said the size thing means I'm going to have to stuff the new tower I'm going to need in the back of the cabinet.

If you were to get another 670, you'd be pretty much at the level of this new card in performance. But if you're like me, with a 2gb 670 then upgrading for more Vram is a good idea.

That's when you then look at the former flagships and see they've dropped a ton in price and buy that. If you are only running 1080p on a single monitor the 250 card will be plenty.

You have to admit, getting those frames at 1080p on a titan is pretty shitty unless it is the best looking game of all time.

AMD's problem is with crossfire (enduro as well). Single card hasn't ever been an issue for me, but I don't play all the new AAAs.

They are working on it, but it still kinda sucks. Toms and Anand have hard numbers on the improvements with CF.

^^^^ That, it really doesn't effect me since I've never crossfired but I guess if i wanted to try it especially since the older cards are dropping in price dramatically I wish I had a stable solution.

If true I can't wait to see what Nvidia's response will be in terms of a better card!

And yes, Company of Heroes 2 really does run that poorly and I have no clue why. Hopefully it gets fixed at some point but it's already been a few months since launch.
