Yea, I am not overly impressed with those numbers. I mean sure they are better, but not by a huge margin. Plus lets face it almost all of those are playable framerates, even on the "old" cards.

but the launch price is $299-$399

the 5850 $299 = GTX 285 $299 (current price)

the 5870 $399 = GTX 295 $499 (current price)


those ATI prices will likely take a dive after the launch of the gtx 3xx series.


but the question now is; will nvidia put out a monster card like back in the 8800gtx days or will they crash and burn since there trying to rush the gtx 3xx into releasing this year.

Only time will tell

don't quote me, i am just stating whats in my mind right now

That pic is hilariously perfect! 5870's in CF look to be a definite nut buster.

BTW, where did you find those numbers?
