The 5870 is not ATI's high end and is not in the same "market" as the 480. The 480 should sell at a significantly higher price tag than 5870 as well, given that the performance should be better and it was a more expensive part to manufacture.
Given the above, I don't understand your statement about 480 and 5870 being in the same "market."
Please, not another round of the ATi fan's favorite game:
"When ATi's single chip is losing to a dual GPU NVIDIA part, it's not a fair comparison. When ATi is winning with a dual GPU part, it's a fair comparison"
It was pretty clear I was comparing single GPUs, don't be an asshat.
