In terms of price, the 470s should be a lot more inviting for most gamers yet the demand is a lot smaller. It was kinda the same way with the 5970. The more people see it selling out quickly the more they wanna get it.
I don't see what the appeal of the 470 is? Most people are already running 5850s or 5870s. The 5850 is about on par for less money and the 5870 is faster for only $50. I think anyone wanting to upgrade right now would want a faster GPU than the 5870. Leaving the GTX 470 kind of without much demand. Even Hardocp's review ended with, "We see no reason to purchase a GeForce GTX 470." (
