wait, that is all correct except one thing, it is a half year late, remember? but it doesn't matter if it is, remember, the games for DX11 hasn't come out yet, so I don't see the reactions of people saying that it is very bad for them to be late, if the supposed games came out. I do agree though, is why it isn't faster than the HD5870 since they took long to do it, but then again don't expect what you expect, that is not a healthy thing, at least on competetion. But I think I know the reason why it isn't faster than it is supposed to be, the cores is 480 of course thats one, the other is they put raytracing, and other nonsense for it that people don't need right now at least games. Now if at least 15 games supporting the card came out, I'd definately agree that people waited for nothing, but of course there are different people, and I think they can afford that card anyways. Just wish nvidia started on it since day 1, since it doesn't look like they did.
