I thought the recommended price for the 5970 was $599?

-edit-

Also, what driver version is Ryan using? No information on testing methodology as far as I could see

Hmm...

The 470 is the only one that tempts me. However, I'm still not sold.

I'm honestly leaning towards a single HD5770 for my next GPU- just gonna' wait and see what the prices do. I might not be able to upgrade till AMD's next generation anyways.

It's in the GPU-Z shot.



197.17



EDIT: I just skimmed the article and it doesn't look all that impressive. It is faster than the HD5870, but consumes way more power, and costs quite a bit more. It still slower than the HD5890 as well.
