AMD Radeon video card is great I love that because it run very smooth in 3-D and Open GL in games. It was former ATI that has changed to AMD Radeon. If I buy that kind of video card and it will remind me as ATI brand. I am sure everyone will know what it was before.
Don't understand why AMD isn't releasing these cards to retail.
They'll need it to combat the GTX550 Ti anyways...
Looks like they are releasing the cards in Q2 2011 and let the select OEM 's have them exclusively for a while.
So 4/1/11 for some to wait is still not that far off for those that just need to upgrade their cards .. in the meantime their will be plenty of feedback to read until the release.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Any speculation on prices? because the 6850 and 6870 can be found for as little as $150 and $175 respectively.... i'm guessing that its going to range from 120 - 150....
I'm interested, because i'll be needing to invest in a gpu, its a pending (2 months already) decision.
