I don't understand why they're more expensive than their performance counterparts. I hope they release a bit lower than the suggested retail.

Teholl, you have to remember that current pricing is after products have been out and, thus, prices can drop accordingly. New generations typically cost more than the parts they replace.

only care if they release a single slot, high performance and low watt consumption. otherwise im not interested in a "uber" graphics if they eat more space and lot of energy.

I'm waiting to upgrade my 4870 (which coincidentally is being shipped to visiontek for warranty repair). I want to upgrade to a 7870. It's the perfect performance/price ratio for me. My 4870 was STILL performing very well.

That is true most often! Anyone remember Nvidia 8800 to 250 transition. At first 250 was more expensive and became cheaper when older stock tryes out. Guite normal procedure. Fierce competing situation can change the situation, but there seems not to be one in sight at this moment...
*sigh*

I would love a new 7xxx series card. I'm happy with my MSI gtx 460, and it works well enough. If I can get something that's going to use less power, and work better, I am all for it. I think I'm going to wait to see NVidia's rebuttal, to make my choice. By then, maybe prices will drop, from AMD, to put pressure on Nvidia, and that way everyone will win. To hell with fan boys, long live competitive pricing. No reason to run SLI to get the same performance as a single gpu, that is less power hungry.. (no micro stuttering, either)

I'm impressed that they managed to make a card equal to the 5770/6770 in performance, and cut the overall TDP in half. I smell a new HTPC and budget gaming favorite.

K, the 7770 has almost the same price as the 5770 did when it was released two and a half years ago[/b] and performance is supposed to be the same. That's not what I call progression.

EDIT: Sorry, I misread the 7750 performance as the 7770 performance.

You guys are misreading this.

The 7770 is faster than a 6850.

the 7750 that's 5-0 is as fast as the 6770 that's 7-0 of the prior generation.

"The HD 7750 should equal performance of the HD 6770/5770 in performance"

7750's power envelope is well within 75W max the MB can provide. If the specs are correct this could be the fastest GPU that doesnt require a dedicated power connector! Nice :)

WTF AMD????
"with performance falling between the HD 6850 and HD 6790"

The way I see it, you slowest next gen video card should perform faster than last gen's fastest..... otherwise you make urself look like an ass............

I didn't troll or make any otherwise anti-AMD comments, and yet I got a bunch of thumbs-down, as if I flamed. Good job, fanbois. My point, was that a 6850 can be purchased from Newegg for less than $150. If the 7770 has a suggested retail price of $150, it seems a little odd, no? That's all.

I bought my HD 4850 in July of '09 for $100, 512MB version. I'm just looking for better prices so I can upgrade in my price segment and have it be worth it three years later . . .what is so wrong about that?
