That would be the GeForce FX 5800 Ultra.Which one was that leaf blower Nv card that got all the hate? I got mine when they did preorders only, used it a bit, and made a hundred bucks after just a month. That was exciting.
Still on 28nm, varying performance increase over existing flagship, yes it's understandable why some may not see this GPU as significant. From Ryan's review:If the 970/980 came out on 20nm as originally planned. Now that would have been exciting.
True. If the performance was 150% if the 780 then the 970 would hit my trifecta more square, the performance aspect is not impressive on its own for new generation. It is impressive relative to price/power.Your "performance" argument is circular. If you only said price/power then your post would make sense.
The price reduction is just on time generation wise. I (and I presume many others) are just disappointed that there is virtually no faster single chip available. At this point in time that should be expected in addition to the inevitable price reduction.
Yep, that's awesome, know the feeling.I went to Microcenter Friday and picked up the Gigabyte 970 card, upgrading from 560Ti SLI setup. Unbelievably, MC also had ONE Swift PG278Q in stock which took me by surprise because I didn't think they would be back in stock for a few weeks...
I REALLY didn't plan on dropping that much money, but how could I turn it down?
Gsync along with this new card REALLY is a game changer though, everything is so smooth- I played some titanfall and crysis3 last night. They're almost like brand new to me again
I briefly entertained "upgrading" from my 290 to 970 after getting caught in the excitement of new release and seeing the low power numbers. I decided to stay with 290 though. 970 would have been a "sidegrade" for me really, and I don't think I could sell my 290 for more than $220 net, so I'd have to pay $120+ to switch. Not really worth it when my 290 is already almost as fast and under AIO red mod, so it stays whisper quiet and cool. The bitcoin craze which had a huge part in running up the GPU prices in the last year has finally died down so I'm thinking prices are going to be a lot more reasonable in the future, and I'm sure 20nm is going to get released next year. All of these factors convinced me to keep my 290. I like playing with new toys as much as anybody, but "upgrading" to 970 would be a waste of money. Sigh...It might be interesting to see whose upgrading to the 970 and from what vs what got folks into the 8800 series. If I remember correctly I went from 7800gt to 8800gts 640 (my vote and loved that card). Is the 970 getting 780 or 290 owners or 280x and 680 owners? I'm hearing a lot of folks are upgrading from fairly "new" cards.
