Well according to the rumors, the 4870X2 won't be all that similar to the previous sandwich-cards, so it's not really fair to compare it to previous generations(until we have more information that is).
The bottom line is that ATi is offering gamers more FPS for their money, and that is really what matters(and also better functionality).
I'm also betting that ATi is going to release a refresh card with higher clocks and the locked stream processors opened, somewhere down the line.
Remember that the ATi cards have a lot more to gain from overclocking than nvidia's offerings due to their reliance on raw power of the stream processors.
