The 6000 series will be a highly tweaked revision of the 5000 series. Since they will be produced on the relatively mature 40nm process you can expect a hard launch with little in the way of supply shortages. The end result will be that the 6870 will be the most powerful single GPU solution available, and while at the present time there is no real competition for the 5970, the 6970 will only extend that lead.

Congrats to ATI. Nothing new (besides a possible 512 shader fermi) will be coming from nVidia until 2H 2011 when they make the 28nm conversion.
