Apparently even the 1GB version doesn't stand up to a GTX http://hardware.gotfrag.com/portal/story/38332/
What is going on here, I always adored ATI because the image quality was so much more superior it wasn't even funny, and now they gone and lost a product cycle and still can't come back with something to stay competitive? I'm salivating at what this card can do for Folding@Home users but I'm not about to wait for quad core processors a month from now and pick a graphics card that isn't 'the best' I can get.
Then again does losing a few fps here and there in benchmarks really mean anything to most gamers? For ATI's sake I hope these high end versions sell like hotcakes as well.
