I believe it brings up a great many points. However, we can't forget that the 8800 GT effectively one-upped most of NVIDIA's upper-end lineup in one fell swoop. With the GTX 560 Ti on the other hand, NVIDIA was a bit more conservative and didn't compete with pre-existing cards. What I am saying is that the market realities are completely different.

To draw parallels between the 8800 GT and the GF104, the GTX 560 TI would have had to outperform the GTX 470 and match GTX 480 performance...BEFORE the GTX 570 and GTX 580 were released.
