They usually do. They released the GTX 480 (top of the line) and the GTX 470 at the same time, with the GTX 460 much later. Hopefully they also offer a higher memory card too. Take their GTX 580 for example:Hopefully they release the most powerful chip for bleeding edge adopters first like they did with the 580.
That's fucking criminal to me, 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory cannot possibly cost 100 dollars. No way, they just want to rape people who will pay for performance at 2560x1600.They usually do.

Stock is 1536MB ($460): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130587
But you can get a 3072MB for about $100 more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130655
Should be fine, a 900 Mhz overclocked 570 is close to the performance of a 580 which is what the E3 demos were run on. I have 2 570's and am confident that it'll be able to run everything on max now that I know the 580 rendered all that beauty.I have an i7 2600K, 8gb and one Gigabyte GTX 570 SOC. Will it handle BF3 smoothly at 1080p or should I get another GTX 570?
yeah thats what i wanted to do, just wait... but i'm rather frightened by the idea of having to play bf3 on my 5770Wait, 7xxx generation should be out soon enough, and a 5770 will run BF3 in the meantime. Conversely when they do come out, you might be able to get ahold of 2 6950's or 6970s for the price of one 7970(guess on the name, i have no idea what it'll be called).
Think about it this way, the game was meant to look pretty damn good on ps3 and 360, which are far inferior to your card. At worst it will look like a 360, and most likely it will be a good deal better. If and when you move up to a nvidia 6xx or AMD 7xxx you will be in another stratosphere of graphics.yeah thats what i wanted to do, just wait... but i'm rather frightened by the idea of having to play bf3 on my 5770
Jup, the only reason I have 8GB of RAM is because I do a lot of work in Photoshop with big images, while having a shit ton of other stuff open in my desktop.Even with my Win 7 OS?
Shouldn't 2 6970's be enough to max BF3? My 6970 can max Bad Company 2 with only the HBAO turned off.I'll probably be selling my 6970s for 2 7970s come BF3/ME3/Skyrim, or adding a 3rd 6970 depending on how scaling works.
Shouldn't have bought the 2nd 6970 in the first place :\.
I want to be able to max BF3. I'm tempted to say 1 6970 or a GTX 570 should be able to run it on high with the candy turned off (AA, AF, HDR, HBAO, etc etc etc).
