Only $600 too. I'm usually on team green so hopefully this starts a price war but I would definitely consider going AMD next upgrade if they keep up the good work.

Gee, a newer generation piece of hardware is faster. Who would've guessed?

On the same process node with a smaller die? Not very many people.

Same gen. I'm not surprised but happy to see AMD bringing the competition especially after nvidia overpriced the 700 series.

With a name like that I would have assumed this was a motorcycle if we weren't on the PC board.

Finally, something a little more relevant to me. Get kinda bummed when benchmarks ignore the older or not-as-new PC games. Especially the ones I'm never interested in playing...

Though, I'm wondering why 4xAA. AA does nothing in Call of Pripyat and you can't force it either. Unless that's an Nvidia issue. Seems like the AA lowers performance but you don't actually get any anti-aliasing in the game... :/

Damn, if this leak is true, then for $600 I'll definitely be upgrading from my 670 now that I have a 1440p monitor.
