I'm not speaking in future tense. I'm speaking as of right now.

You're speaking future tense and two-three months out from now when Fermi will be released. 5970 was released in November. That's a 4-month head start in sales.

The situation is similar to when G80 came out and R600 was late to the party.

If you try to find a 5970 right now you can scarcely find one anywhere. Part of that is due to limited supply but part of it is due to demand. They're selling like hotcakes, and users aren't going to suddenly dump their 600$ graphics cards for a product with similar (or, likely less) performance that Fermi will offer.

It would take a miracle for Nvidia's GTX 380 to outperform HD5970 with its two GPUs. This kid says no chance in hell, but we'll see.
