Re: Official Radeon 7800 series Review and discussion thread
They aren't really enough of a jump over the 5870 IMO, 5850 and 6850, maybe. In heavily tesselated apps and anything that uses over 1GB of VRAM, sure. The much lower power is also a big benefit, of course that's fairly offset by the price at this time. If these move down $50 in the next few months they'll be amazing value - of course if they do that then maybe the NV offering that forced them to do so could be the better choice.
