Default No hype on 7800?

Doesn't the 7800 come out in like three days? Why is everyone so hush hush about it? There's nothing on the Nvidia site or Newegg promoting it. What's going on? New CPU releases usually are surrounded in alot of hype. SLI gets more press than 7800!

I am more hyped up for the X900.


For the UK it is 6 days until the 7800.

(I will check up on them when they are released.)


(released on sunday??)

I'm just excited that the 7800 is coming out because it will drop the price on the 6600 and 6800 GT .

I am not going to get the 7800 right away, I am going to wait and see how the X900XT does and maybe if I can afford it, grab me one. It would be much easier moving to the X900XT anyways because I could just use a driver cleaner and re-install the ATI drivers. I wouldn't need to re-format.

Don't get a 7800 yet. wait for the X900 to be released and check out the feature sets and performance. nobody wants to get shanked because they weren't patient enough to compare.
