    Interesting card, but I am still not convinced it deserved the 68XX name.

    Let’s see what the reviews have to say before drawing final conclusions.

    In any case, my eyes are focused on Cayman.

    yeah AMDs naming scheme is getting very confusing..having 2 different cores (the upgraded core barts, and the new achetechture in cayman) with this naming scheme is crazy..
    they should atleast seperate them a bit more..

    i mean HD68XX is barts..HD69XX is cayman..why couldnt they make barts the 68XX and cayman 78XX? it would save alot of confusion..

    im guessing amd is banking on people buying the wrong card,then replacing it with the card they really wanted, so they can reap the benifits of inflated sales numbers!
