That is the case for Nvidia,which has a much larger transistor budget and is more expensive to make without a doubt,compared to what ATI did with Cypress,which is also the best they could do,but with lower limits on transistor budget,die size,and power consumption.

It's really that simple.
Hey, I never said ATI made bad hardware. They both have their strengths and weaknesses

Just looked on NCIX and there are STILL no 5970s in stock. I thought that had been sorted.
