I may be in the market for a HD8000 or GTX700 series GPU depending on if a game is released that crushes my current SLI and CFX set-up which i doubt!

But I can't wait to compare Benchmarks....fun times ahead!!

I can't believe that anyone would fall for AMD again after the 7970m fiasco. I think that they just got a semi-functional driver for the bloody thing last month. Built my new Sager back at the start of the year, swapped to a 680m and haven't looked back. And I was an ATI/ AMD fanboy for years and years. But the software just doesn't cut it and Enduro is still hardly functional and impacts performance across the board. I would get 20 FPS dips standing still in certain games. Absolutely ridiculous.

Edit: And what pisses me off about all this "power management" crap - for AMD or NVidia - is that people who are building/ buying grotesquely expensive and powerful laptops obviously don't care too much about POWER MANAGEMENT. They're buying it for games. Windows has its own power management and that works just fine. One thing that I liked about the NVidia firmware is that you can just turn GPU switching OFF. That's how it should be if your'e a power user. I don't need a Mommy State holding my hand and controlling my experience. I'd buy and Apple product if I wanted that.

8900M series should be interesting to look at I believe. I notice two notches listed along the enthusiast tier. Makes me wonder. 8900M Series and what else.
