As i always have stated here, you need a monster bandwidth to run monster resolutions with AA/AF. Shading power is useful when you aren't bandwidth bounded.

The memory bandwidth of a gfx card is like a gold ingot. (do not mention the R600 please)

I just can hope that the 55nm refresh features GDDR5 with a 512bit bus -> 300 GB/s
AMEN to that, hence i'll wait for the 4870X2 to come out before i make a decision!
