me too bro i'm a diehard nvidia fan

hahah as for the R520, it wont have 16 pipelines, somone said that they waited for nvidia to come out with the 7 series then make a better card so i doubt it'll have 16. if so then i'm gonna have one hell of a time with my 7800GTX

You gotta play in the fact that they have delayed so many times because they are trying to beat out Nvidia.

SImple, if it out performs the previous gen at lower clock speeds then it will go way past it at higher speeds.

Well if the 7800GTX pwns at low clock speeds then all they have to do is clock them higher, and call them 7900GTX or something.

ATi better not flunk up much more like this. The GPU market needs good competetion or one company might start to slack off. I think nvidia got a bit too cocky and the Geforce 7s are so far extremely disappointing. With ATi current yields this generation is awful, especially for a $600+ card
