You can get the same performance of this card just by overclocking a regular 5970. The extra 2GB of RAM aren't going to boost framerates by any noticeable amount. This is mostly a marketing gimmick. 5970's are already able run at 5870 stock speeds. They're just underclocked to fit in the 300w spec.
