3D for multiple displays? Won't the bezel size affect the 3D illusion? I've been asking myself this ever since Nvidia introduced it.

Also, where mah HD 7670 at? Because it looks like no joy this Christmas...

I'll never buy a $700 graphics card. 1920 x 1080 resolution is enough for me, and a GTX 560 Ti/ATI 6950 1Gb will hit 40 - 60 fps most of the time.

Nvidia and amd needs to make the next gen card PCI-E 3.0 ONLY. if you arent ready for it then you can get the current gen. PCI-e 3 if fully utilized can make a huge difference, this can improve graphics, think of the desginers who has to create huge art work, this can make it so much faster.

You're a bit hasty there, altough I agree, to some extent. Almost nobody has a pci-e 3.0 ready motherboard, so, who would buy those cards?

Make it PCI-e 2.0+ only, and they can sell the cards to a lot more people, and maybe get rid of one of those power plugs (since pci-e 2.0 offers up to 150w instead of 75w).

Forgot to mention: with this price tag, performance better be stellar, or else nobody would buy them anyways.

[citation][nom]rmpumper[/nom]Europe gets screwed with prices once again.[/citation]
Yup ... as always this probably will be false: "early European pricing for the HD 7970 is in the range of 539-549 Euro (or $699.03 to $712.00)"

I've never seen this to happen, it will probably be like: 539-549 $ and 699 - 712 euros. There's something dubious about the conversion, i can't help but wonder what kind of reality distortion field is out there that comes up with these prices.
