Alright, went to NCIX the other day and was hardware shopping, wanting a new card to replace my 470 because it's starting to become dated. I was eyeing some Radeon 69xx series and was talking to the clerk, he said that the 6950's are basically the 6970 hardware wise, they just stuck a limiter to it, and you can get around it by unlocking shaders, and you'd get the same performance out of it as you would the higher end card. Really? pay $50-100 extra to have a card with no limiter? Now correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that make things expensive shipping the same hardware but slapping a limiter on it and giving it a lower number?
