AMD Quietly Reveals Next Radeon Series, Launches Next Week

AMD is launching its second generation of DX11 GPUs next week. Question is even the 4000 series GPUs play most current games maxed out "without dx11 effects of course". Does anyone really need such powerful hardware? unless they want to be gaming on triple screens.

I had been planning on going crossfire with another 5870 when the price drops (after the 6000 series cards come out) but more and more I am asking myself "what for?".

99.9% of the games I play with my single 5870 run at 60+ frames with everything maxed out @ 1920 X 1080.

It makes the 6000 series cards even less attractive to me.

Games really need to start taking advantage of the amount of horsepower that's available with today's GPU's.

Upgrading your card again will be mostly a waste until the next gen consoles finally make their way around.
I hate long console cycles. They're such a progress stunter...

what are you talking about dirthurts. The PS3 is more powerful than any card on the market. It's every other platform that is holding the PS3 back.

"It's every other platform that is holding the PS3 back"

Which is why PS3 cant run a single first person shooter in 1080p :P Something even us 4 year olds manage.

ROFL not to mention with Anti Aliasing and better textures.

"The PS3 is more powerful than any card on the market. It's every other platform that is holding the PS3 back."

Is that why the PS3 versions of games all look worse than the PC versions?

Even my ancestors can crush the PS3.

From the early rumored specs on the new cards I will probably be looking at picking up a 6850. Due to PSU limitation I can't Xfire anything heavy and the 6850 outperforms the 5830 but on a single 6 pin setup with a similar powerdraw to a 5770. If they slot it in the price range of a 460GTX 768-1gb I will be all over it for the future Xfire ability on an AMD board.

Should be interesting indeed

I've got my eyes set on the flagship 6000 series card :)

My target is Ati Raideon 5870.If prices drop enough.

It's a damn good card man, I have it and love it!!! This card alone is just so powerful it's ridiculous.
