Been looking around the internet and it looks like the new 7000s series cards come out on the 15th february and there around $200 for the mid-high end range (high ends are around 249 I think) and for the $199 mark it performs the same as a 6950 and well outperforms a 5850, I wanted to get an XFX 5850 but it looks like these new cards are going to be much better. Anyone have any advice (I was planning to buy the 5850 next week).

RIG:
4GB DDR3
AMD ATHLON X3 (3.2HX TRI CORE)
ALPINE 650W SILENT PSU

So moral of the story, does anyone have any info on how much the 7000 series would outperform a 5850?

My budget is around £140 ($220)

Cheers

I doubt they will give you better performance for the same money. New stuff always cost more for the same performance unless you need the new features. I doubt anything at $199 will beat the 6950 in performance. The 7870 will probably be $300.

Yeah i thought that too But im going to wait and see some benchmarks or just general specs and prices when they are released

Wait for benchmarks before taking the plunge. Go with either Radeon or GeForce based on the results.

Well the 7970 and 7950 are out, but s bit pricey. I would wait for some benchmarks before i went to choosing. Kepler has not official release date. we can only estimate when a release is. But from the release specs of the 600 series, its definitely gonna be kicking some @$$. the new GTX 680 is gonna have the same amount of CUDA as the 590 did on a single card. the 660ti is the new 580.

And if you did the math (and added some every performance over old versus new) the GTX 690 is expected to be like running 4 way SLI GTX 580's. Now not many games are gonna need that much horsepower but however if we were wanting to outlast the Nuclear Apocalypse and the Alien invasion then a GTX 690 will bid you a century. Just had to throw that it haha. I Suggest looking over that chart. if they are legit which i have no reason to doubt. i'd say a GTX 660ti or even a 670. It would look as if they double the CUDA count for each card. So what ever model 500 series, the cuda amount it has + X amount
