Yes, except this time it looks like the HD6870 isn't an inferior card. The 9800GTX was weak in memory bandwidth, so in higher resolutions the 8800GTX had a sizable lead.
Can't wait to see the prices on these cards though, should be a great purchase for anyone looking for a mid range upgrade.
Can anyone find any info on multimonitor support? Curious if these cards are able to do 3+ monitors without the active DP splitter.
