Radeon HD 7900 to feature Eyefinity 3D

Written by Slobodan Simic

radeon logo_new

Pricing still set at US $549/$449


According to a post over at Donanimhaber, it appears that the upcoming Radeon HD 7900 series will feature a new Eyefinity 3D feature. Donanimhaber also talked about the pricing of the Radeon HD 7900 series and puts it at pretty much the same ballpark that we reported a few weeks ago.

According to Donanimhaber, the upcoming AMD Radeon HD 7900 series, and probably the entire Southern Islands based cards, will have a new feature called Eyefinity 3D. The new Eyefinity 3D is pretty much the regular Eyefinity with support for 3D 120Hz displays.

The rumoured price is set at somewhere around €500 for the HD 7970. We have been hearing that the final price should be set at US $549 for the HD 7970 and US $449 for the slower HD 7950 for quite some time and it looks like our sources were right on track when we reported it a few weeks back.

Of course, AMD can easily change the pricing a day before the launch so nothing is 100 percent sure until cards start showing up in retail/e-tail.

I can't help but think about how the bezels are going to affect the 3D images on-screen.

I'm thinking shove that price up your ass AMD...

They are charging 3D prices as well! Go screw yourselves AMD. I am not paying for your Bulldozer failure and your efforts to balance this fail on my expense!

200 euros for the 3870

250 euros for the 4870

300 euros for the 5870

350 euros for the 6970

500 euros for the 7970? LOLWTF?

Exactly, BD failure so let's make up our bottom line buy ripping off graphics card buyers... Horseshit... shrinking to 28nm is meant to save money in the manufacture process, why in the world shold it be more expensive, cause it performs better??? Retarded...

OK... why is it worse than the same price scheme Nvidia is pulling off for more than a decade?

Come on.. you wouldn't expect Nvidia to demand lower prices fopr their next gen, would you?

Or are you just looking for a new tidbit to complain about?

500 for the 7970 is fine depending on the performance/updated features.

if it is the usual 20% increase, it would be a rip off, but if it is groudbreaking it is fine.

Its 40nm vs 28nm it should be groudbreaking.

Tidbit to complain about, pff you tard... If they start playing Nvidia's pricing game we are all screwed... If you had any brain you would not welcome such a price increase... Ground breaking what??? It is 28nm, so what less energy better performance better memory bandwidth with 384bit... does that warrant a $200 increase

Well, analysts have said on more than one occasion that AMD undervalues their chips/cards. They took the advice, why should nvidia with their late and broken chips be selling at a higher price while offering the same or lower quality? Boom!

They've upped the amount of ram and we don't know how much TSMC is asking for the chips.

Some of you might blurt out a price that nvidia's next G's will have and that it will be the same to the 500€ they asked for the 580 but I would not be surprised if their top single GPU cards would cost in the 600€ to 700€ range.
