AMD's HD7000 family of graphics cards based off their new architecture, GCN, has been snatching up market share from Nvidia for the better part of six months now, winning over gamers with a low power draw, efficient design and improved specs over the outgoing HD5000 and HD6000 series.

The icing on top is the HD7850 - a gamer's friend at R2600 which clubs the GTX560Ti effectively at its price point and may force Nvidia into a major price war. As manufacturers design and price their GTX560Ti units closer to R2000, I began to wonder how AMD was going to cope with that. Behold, Tom's Hardware may have stumbled on the answer.
