I have to say a few things. Why would you release a card series higher with less power to it meaning the 6800 series. Meaning less stream processors and lower memory bandwidth? I know they amd wants a piece of the mainstream market but they didn't suspect the gtx 580 coming out to overshadow it? Also, usually a next gen product in the series usually surpasses it's former. This is the 1st time this isn't the case. They should have left the 6870 and 6850 in the 5000 series then and introduced the cayman and antilles parts as the next gen. Unless amd is going under power those too. The only two things amd has going for them is bluray 3d on 5000 and 6000 series cards (they still haven't annouced offically their 3d partner for 3d hardware) and multi monitor gaming on one card in the 5000 and especially the 6000 cards where you get 4 monitors on one card. What I am getting at is I like Nvidia's approach, bring out the flagship card then release it underlings (with the exception of the 590, probably due to engineering difficulties or it would have been out 1st). Nvidia does have to work on multi monitor gaming. Here's a question, can display port technologies make use of 3d vision or 3d surround (regular surround too) for gaming? If so, Nvidia can solve their problems right there for multi monitor gaming. Using 3 dvi's over two cards for nvidia is not efficent and amd knows it.

I think i did the best thing in ordering the GTX 470, the GTX 570 is meh just a GTX480 with slightly lower power consumption and slightly lower temps.

As i thought of it 300 for the GTX 570 vs 177 for the GTX 470 a big diffrence in price. Will need to get a custom cooler then overclock it.

ATi explained that they made a shake up with the model numbers to allow Fusion (CPU and GPU intergrated) to become one into their line up which is due in the 1st Quater of next year.

So their model will now strech from CPU/GPU to Value to med value to high end to ultra high end.

At current and was the same before, with the 5870 cards the numbers mean, 5 = Generation, 8 performance region, 70 speed (30 low, 50 mid, 70 high).

The next card will be 6970 which is the 5870 replacement.
