Yes, SI will be here soon. Not arguing that at all. Just that, you can't compare in benches when there are none. Only can offer theoretical numbers. Wasn't a slam.

Of course not,but it's a given they'll be faster no matter what,and that Nvidia is still paying the price of being really late,and still not having a Dual GPU card themselves that beats the HD5970,most likely for power and heat reasons like you mentioned.


Will a dual GPU card based on the GF104 do it?,it might give the HD5970 a good run for the money given the benchmarks posted,but by the time it might be released to market,you guessed it,here comes SI from ATI,which again,will probably have a Dual GPU based version yet again(HD6970??),so i'm not sure Nvidia will bother with it,trying to beat a card from what will be the previous generation by then.
