And since ATI can drop prices as their chips are smaller and only use a 256 bit bus,and still make money on each one they sell?...Fermi being that large and using a 384 bit bus,doesn't lend itself quite as well to price drops while still making money.
It's the HD4870 versus GTX280 or the HD4890 versus GTX 285 fight all over again,only this time,unlike those previous examples,it seems Nvidia doesn't have a performance edge to charge a premium anymore.
Interesting times ahead to say the least.
