finally unveiled on the 26th. 480 is going to directly compete with the 5870 at $499, the 470 competing with the 5850 at $349. its quite disappointing for the most part they have similar performance compared to their competitors, sometimes beating the competing cards by 10-20% but also losing that much in a couple games. some think that ati loses a bit of performance at higher resolutions as the 480 ships with 1.5gb~ while the 5870 ships with 1gb. though ati are bringing out 2gb 5870's soon. but then again, huang already stated that nvidia are looking at a more work orientated platform with the fermi chipset. heck the 480 folds 4x as fast as the 295. http://anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3783&p=1 http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2010/03/2...-1-5gb-review/1 its going to be interesting to see how ati respond. they already are bringing out that 2gb 5870. hopefully a decent sized price drop again.
