I don't think they enjoyed a best-in-class card at any point except for the 4870x2 which was easily beaten by the 295 when it came out.
They were behind through the whole last set of cards
When the GTX295 came out 6 months later you mean....The HD4870X2 was without any challenge for the second half of 2008,as the GTX295 was only released in early 2009(january i think).
The HD5970 has been out since november 2009(5 months now),and there's still no word on when we'll see a dual Fermi card on retail shelves.
