    This thread is discussing the links the OP posted so it doesn't make a difference what you assumed. No one mention a card that was only 3 quarters of the 680 would match a 7970. The 680 has 8 SMX units, disabling 1 doesn't reduce it by a quarter.
    Going by the links it seems the 670 will be slightly less powerful then the 7970 and cost approx £300 (Things are always marked up in the country). The 460 looks like it'll cost approx £230-£240. Prices are never like for like when discussing things in dollars.

    well if you look at the 7950 lets say 330 quid.... dont forget Nvidia are always way too expensive...sapphire 7950 is 323quid.

    but, people like to buy what looks cool and macho, unfortnately the 670 looks like an ``Eco friendly leaf blower`` with no bloody personality at all, this put me off the 680 too..... it looks too bland, no WOW factor

    The 560ti was/is a great card and hopefully the 660ti will be just as good a replacement.

    yea i missed out on all of that, i built my first rig and just kept gaming, until a couple of years ago when i said it was time to update.... i never updated between, other than a few PSUs, time just goes so fast.

    oh yea i blew a few GTXs OCing via Rivatune, but thast wasn't my fault.... i blame Crysis for that

    because it's quite a shock to see the oc numbers for the 7970, i've written them all down, compared to those i put in for the GTX 8800 all those years ago, nobody told me i had no idea

    The 670ti must have the ability to sniff the backside of a 7970.

    Quite simply because the 7950 can, and that's the card it is going up against.

    it depends when the 670 is officially released, they cant do anything here till it is and next week might be two weeks too early.

    just dont put up the price of the 7970s please........... pretty please !

    So it seems the cards are the GTX670 and GTX670TI.

    Looking at the GTX670 it looks like it will trade blows with the HD7870:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_680/27.html

    So is the GTX670 around £230 as Gibbo mentioned(I think) a while back??

    It looks like the HD7850 2GB will be the only higher performance 28NM card under £200.
