Give it a little mre time for more board to be available and the pricing to settle...

At the ASIC level every PRO built can operate at PRO2 levels using the PRO2 BIOS so floor pricing is already dictated by that.

You'll find various members from different communities. ATI actually picked me up "from" one of the communities if fact - my former life I was one of the line of editors / owners of Beyond3D. Currently I am the Manager of the Performance and Enthusiast Desktop GPU team in the Discrete GPU Product Management Division.
