Radeon HD 7000 hitting mass production next month

Just when you thought you couldn’t get more confused trying to remember all the names of the vast quantities of graphics cards being pumped out by AMD and Nvidia this past year, the 6670, 6570 and 6450 will be launched in 7 days time on the 19th of April.

But wait, if you’re holding out for the latest and greatest you might want to hang on to your cash for a little longer.

The story is too old to be commented.

Probably pick some up in september, in time for Rage.

SuperStrokey11232626d ago

Id wait to see what the actual performance numbers are like rather than deciding to buy one now.

Ducky2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

... or battlefield3?

If nothing else, the price of the current cards will take a dive then.

wicko2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

both :) i figure by september nvidia will have an offering and prices will adjust.

SuperM2626d ago

Well the performance numbers are ofcourse going to be better then they are now, so you cant really go wrong buying it. The only thing you should think about is if you should wait and see what nvidia comes out with.

wicko2626d ago

yeah that too. I have nvidia now, I don't really feel any loyalty to either brand. Just whatever is best for the money at the time. Plus once nvidia's offerings come out it may ignite a pricing war.

For the PC gamers just when you thought you had the latest card BAM! Here comes another one lol. Let the pocket raping commence well only for the completely insane that is well that would be the majority of pc gamers then who like to have the latest lmfao.

young juice2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

you would still be top class with hd 5770 (2009)

you dont deserve the saiyan name

SuperSaiyan42626d ago

As you probably are some 8yo kid on his/her half term me not deserving the saiyan name has nothing to do with the comments I made.
In fact like over half of the members on this site including yourself you are clearly inept and unable to add any serious input into any article let alone a PC related one.
So may I suggest you go back to tidying your room, doing your home work and whats the time? Oh and get to bed.

My comments were out of jest considering the many responses by the half witted small minded PC gamer userbase that like to insult with inapropriate manner towards consoles.

young juice2626d ago

thats a long *** insult.

now name me one game currently out on the market with settings that the hd 7000 can handle that a card out for a year or so couldnt.

Ducky2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

"In fact like over half of the members on this site including yourself you are clearly inept and unable to add any serious input into any article let alone a PC related one."

I agree.
... and if you would kindly read your own comments, you'd agree that you're in that half as well.

even giving the GTX5xx series and HD5xxx/6xxx series a real challenge and "can it run Crysis" joke is already a history, but here we are...gazing at another upcoming release of a more powerful card in the next series already!

serious question, "what for?" just so you can have fps count more than your eyes can cope with? pc devs are to be blamed though as they are not willing to take advantages of current tech unlike the old days! seems like Crysis was the last one of the pack!

@SuperSaiyan4:

"My comments were out of jest considering the many responses by the half witted small minded PC gamer userbase that like to insult with inapropriate manner towards consoles."

Right... Cause the console fanboys on here never resort to insults and immaturity...

It's actually quite the opposite. The PC gamer average age group tends to be a fair bit higher than the console age group. You get more immature kids on here that are console fanboys than you do PC users by a long shot.

"For the PC gamers just when you thought you had the latest card BAM! Here comes another one lol. Let the pocket raping commence well only for the completely insane that is well that would be the majority of pc gamers then who like to have the latest lmfao. "

Many people use their computers for more than just gaming. You know that a computer has more uses than gaming, correct? <_<. Also, only a small percent of the PC gamers would be upgrading from the previous generation. Most people who buy the new generation have a GPU that's a few generations old. Only the people who are rich and have the money to throw around constantly buy the newest when it comes out. And it's not insane, it's a hobby. Just like people tune their cars, or collect things.

Also, without the PC gaming and computing industry driving the advancement of these chips, the consoles would be much more pitiful in terms of performance, as well as future generation. You have this industry to thank for massive leaps in performance with each new console.

Next time you call somebody a kid, at least act like an adult yourself, as right now you're just acting like a kid yourself.

Just because a new top of the range card comes out on a regular basis doesn't suddenly mean that we drop everything to go and buy it. I've had the GTX 295 since 2009 (which was the fastest card back then) and it still runs everything smooth as butter

NYC_Gamer2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

just because something new comes out does not mean you are forced to buy it.and whats to feel sorry about?you do know the difference between PC Gamers&enthusiast right.

x8002626d ago

feel sorry? r u dumb? a card from 2008-2009 could max out 95% of games that are out today. we get new tech yes, and its a option for us if we would like to buy it or not, unlike consoles which have outdated hardware+sofeware which cant be upgraded+updated so i should feel sorry for that mahahaha.

dirthurts2626d ago

@Saiyan

Upgrading is a privilege, not a chore. Get it right. I love upgrading. It's part of why I like PC. You can keep your old hardware.

wicko2626d ago

Don't worry bro, one day you'll be able to afford a PC that can play more than solitaire.

Demonsdown2626d ago

I'm waiting for when IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAND!

Halow2626d ago

In no way shape or form do the PC gaming crowd "need" to get this card when it comes out to play any of the games out at high resolutions or to their fullest capability. The people who buy these cards at their launch are PC enthusiasts who like the extra % on mark scores. I have 3 gaming computers in my house and the lowest powered one has a 9800 GT, and q6600 and 6GB of ddr3. It played the crysis 2 PC beta on high (not very high) settings and got 40 FPS which is better than consoles and the whole comp costs about 500 bucks to put together right now.

BUT.. with that being said.. I was going to be buying the 6990 with a p67 chipset board but now I guess I will wait for the 7000 series and the X67 chipset.

LONG LIVE THE PC!

SuperSaiyan42626d ago

Sounds like on one hand you are defending pc gamers who are not looking to get this card then throw a spanner into the works by clearly showing you are one of the pc gamers that will get this card - oh wait you are my bad *rolls eyes*

The shear idiotricty on this site never fails to amaze.

Halow2626d ago

My post was pretty self explanitory..

You see I first say that PC gamers do not need it and only the PC enthusiasts buy the cards at launch.

THEN I give an example of why people do not need the big expensive cards to play games that are coming out right now..

And in the end I reveal that I am a PC enthusiast myself and that I am one of those people who do buy those cards at launch.

IF you read properly you will see that you don't need to buy the expensive stuff now but I am one of the people who do.

So no.. not a contradiction. L2Read bro

NYC_Gamer2626d ago (Edited 2626d ago )

he's a PC enthusiast thats why the 7xx is on his radar they like to have the latest hardware.on the other hand PC Gamers are very different we don't really buy the latest hardware at launch.i only have one gtx 570 and it plays everything fine in my opinion.

tawak2626d ago

already?! i just got xfx 6950! =(

wollie2626d ago
