Oh the Barracuda is pictured above for no reason. I just think it is a cool car.

Hopefully they do cross the hurdle with 3x crossfire to really make use of all these advancements, they have a lot of toys to show off but the execution takes so long with ATI right now. :/ maybe we could all pool some money together to hire a guy with a whip to chase those programmers.

if they pump it up to 512-bit memory or even 1024-bit im sold. and need at least 1GB ram on that thing and make it $400<

They will destroy Nvidia and that greedy huang.

I would guess that the HD 5870 will come in 512MB and 1GB variations.

1024 bit mem. interface seems really unlikely. It most definitely will be a 512 bit.

If the above is true that would be amazing. But keep in mind that before the 4870 came out it was thought it would have something around 400 stream processors and that they would be clocked higher the the core clock. I am not certain that ATI will go with a 512 bit bus because with R700 they went with just a 256 bit bus for the reason they got their banwidth from the gddr5 memory. I suppose it is plausible though because of the power savings of 40nm. It would be incredible if they can pack all that performance mentioned in the article in that die size.

I think it will be a while before we ever see a 1024 bit bus in a graphic card. Maybe at 22nm.
