Remember, right now the average price of a HD 7870 is about $250.
There are already Radeon 7870 at $240 on average. AMD already cuts the prices again on the 7800 and 7900 cards just a couple days ago. With MIR, some have even fallen to the $220-230 price point, but maybe MIR shouldn't be counted. A HIS 7870 can even be found at $210 last I checked though they are out of stock now.

Still, this is very similar when the 670 came out. It offers almost 90% performance of the $100 more 680. Same thing on the 660 vs 660ti. Imo, why would you buy a card that offers very similar performance at $239 to the $300 card
