    Something is missing like a red Ruby ass and black Ruby ass on 6970 that’s for sure.

    Wow it’s small….
    I wonder if could even superpass a GT240 in OpenCL …

    …im wondering why nvidia has chosen to make their cards and drivers look almost identical to the ATI/AMD cards and drivers

    would be nice to see AMD release a new Ruby demo with their new kit, not just go-fast stickers on the card!

    Yeah. Still waiting for that Cinema 2.0 Robot demo that was supposed to come out for the 4870X2. Meh!

    As for the 960 shaders, I am hearing they will me like 320 4wide actually. So essentially it will almost the same as the 5870 320 5wide shaders.

    The Cayman will be a 3 RPE part, which means 480×4 shaders. An RPE is something like Nvidia’s GPCs and features 16 ROPS, 32TMUS and 160 4wide shaders. The Barts will be a two RPE part and Cayman a 3 RPE part as I already said. The single RPE part should be Turks or Caicos. Don’t know, I’m confused with those two.
