"The release of AMD's new line-up of graphics cards has to be one of the most hyped up technological release this year, especially amongst gamers and enthusiasts alike. And there is good reason for this, the HD58XX series proved to be a success right from its release over a year ago. Inevitably, our expectations have grown. Can AMD deliver round of high performance graphics card at competitive prices? Two months ago, we were greeted with AMD's Barts architecture. Naming scheme aside, the HD6850 and HD6870 proved to be excellent mid-range graphics cards, performing nearly on par with the previous flagship HD5870 and yet priced much lower. The release prompted a series of event that cascaded down to benefit consumers the most. On the one hand, we had AMD producing highly efficient, low power GPUs with tremendous overclocking headroom to satisfy enthusiasts and on the other hand we saw NVIDIA responding with reduced pricing on the high end GF100 based GTX470 and mid-range GF104 based GTX460. If that wasn't enough, NVIDIA promptly released more efficient GF110 based GPUs derived from the power hungry GF100 cores in the form of the GTX570 and GTX580. Inherently, the high end market has now become saturated with choice but for the consumers it has translated to cheaper high end solutions."
