    anyone got any legit news?

    launch?
    specs?
    price?

    if not, anyone have an "educated" guess. educated guess as in history will repeat itself. what amd have done in the past launch, chances are they will do similar.

    also. what is the typical price drop of the predecessor (7970) when this does launch? or when does the price of 7970 began to slope downward in anticipation of the launch?

    Nope.

    --Nope.
    --Nope.
    --Nope.

    Educated guess is that it will come out in 2013 and the price of the 7970 will drop some.

    That answer all your questions?

    We'll have all the details in five months time, as for the cards .... Q2 2013 was thrown around, im starting to doubt that though.

    The common speculation is that HD 8970 will have 2560 SPs and a 384-bit bus. Nothing concrete yet.

    AMD will go bankrupt before the release of HD 8970. Best to save 700$ for a GTX 780.

    Bigger and faster on the same process and using less power? I find that difficult to believe but i suppose its good to have goals.
