This is not bad. Its a negative perspective. Its like moving from one apt to the next but having to break the lease in the process. "Owner breaks lease and has a 800 dollar loss for the month" little do they know they are now paying 300/m less in rent and will make it up in a month or 2. AMD will make that up in a quarter or 2. Its already been talked about when they broked it off with GF....OLD NEWS

[citation][nom]frozonic[/nom]i see amd is having a bad time, they suck at making decent CPU´s and their GPU´s will get outperformed by nvidia´s gtx 6xx series.... they either go loud or go home.[/citation]

I don't agree with the gpu part.

Come on nVidia released their new GPU 3 moths later than AMD. So I guess it's nothing special that 680 is 10-15% faster that 7970. AMD is almost done with 7xxx series while nVidia is at the very begining of introduction of 6xx series. I think nothing changed in AMD-nVidia race. It's constantly amd taking over performance crown, then nVidia follows up 2-3 moths later and takes over. And the cycle repeat.

That's my opinion. Maybe something gonna change if nVidia has gk110 ready to go. But that is rumor so far. And even if it's true, AMD will be ready with 8xxx series by the end of the year.

... after almost 4 cards being number 1 by AMD and nvidia finally gets it right. Sadly i have seen posts about nvidia rebranding half their crap.

wrong, it took AMD almost a year and half to release a card that out performed the 5 series. Then Nvidia fired back 3 months later that gave them what a 3 month gap ahead of AMD compared to years of being behind?

Amd decided not to create a GPU which sucks the power of two of theirs, so they released their dual gpu solution, which was right on par with Nvidia's they released 2 weeks later.

HAHA no, AMD had the advantage, i agree with Stingstang, they had the ability to try to lower power consumption which they did. Not to mention, when you KNOW you have the advantage, you can bleed the market. Im not one to SUPPORT this but when you can do it, you do it. Its called capitalism. Did you forget what country your in? :D

That's actually not redundant, though the "quarter" should be changed to "quarterly" to be used as an adjective. "Q1 quarterly earnings" is proper English.

That's correct, but I guess it would be considered correct for proper American XD

I don't know what you've been reading, but AMD's 7970s go clock for clock with NVidia's 680s and its pretty comparable, especially once you OC the two. And AMD is the better choice for compute performance. So where has NVidia gained such a huge advantage (10-15%) as to consider it a runaway. Like the 8000 series cards, the GTK110 isn't arriving anytime soon. Truth be told, you can go with either AMD or NVidia right now and still win based on what you want to have. Let's quit making it seem like NVidia has a hugely superior product like Intel over AMD.

That is a different subject entirely.

There's no doubt that AMD can't compete with Intel about CPUs but you're not right at all about the GPU war vs NVIDIA.
AMD are the leading horse in the battle and are always slightly ahead of nvidia. The GTX680 is really late answer for AMD's last GPU series.
Now imagine if AMD releases their newest series, they'll lead again.

Although i love ATI/AMD i dont consider myself a fanboy of either company.Just wanted to point that out first. The thing is that if you compare the 7970 with the Gtx 680 at same clock rates they perform pretty much the same in gaming. However there are a few things to consider:
The 7970 is a computation beast and is better for 3D designing /3D applications compared to the gtx 680. However the so called Gtx 680 was initialy the Gtx 660ti/670 and the correct equivalent of the 7970 is supposed to be the Big Kepler Gtx 685. Am pretty sure that Nvidia people are rubbing their hands from the stunt they pulled trickering people to pay double the money for that gcard. Seeing that their midrange kepler card was able to outperform a stock 7970 they changed the label to 680 so they could rip us off and pull the big kepler card in the unlike event AMD produces something to rival Nvidia.
