More about 8xxx actual specs website
  1. Someone could explain me if rebranding is really neccesary in this situation?
  2. People who buy pre-builts the majority of the time don't know whats in the machine, all they will see if the "next-gen" advertising and be wowed by it.
    Though admittedly I was fooled for a bit, they could have at least used different product numbers to differentiate from what is really going to be available.
  3. I was thinking about that after i saw the hd 8740 and hd 8760
  4. Checking my card vs this 8870
