$479 and $499 for pricing definitely not liking that.......

Although good to see it still edging out a 580 and 6970

Edit: just checked the prices on the 7950 cards currently available to me in aus and well thee are 7950 cards that cost more than the highest priced 7970 on newegg I hate australia for pricing :glare:

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Yup in aus 7950 prices are currently $550 to $640 and 7970 are $700 to $770 with the most expensive 7970 on newegg being $610 for an aftermarket cooled gigabyte OC edition.

I mean this new series of cards by AMD are performing great but they sure as hell aint worth the prices being dumped on Australia.
