Question How many Memory Bandwidth ?

Anybody knows how many memory bandwidth will deliver the next nVidia card models ?

If it's lower than 56GB/s +-, i'll be very disappointed.

Core speed is very important, but, I need more memory bandwidth to play with high framerates in ultra high resolutions with FSAA & AF.

I've tested both 6800U & X800XT models with memory running around 1.1 - 1.2 GHz, & it isn't enough for my personal needs.

I think that i'll need memory running at 1.7 - 1.8 GHz at least.

Of course, i always can buy 2 cards & run them in SLI with AFR, to 'double' the framerate in apps that aren't core speed limited. But, if prefer to use SLI later, when i'll need even more gfx power & not since the beginning.
