Looks pretty good to me. Too bad I'm not a desktop gamer, or I might consider it.

I like the new cards and pricepoints, though it was slightly confusing. I was curious how they'd get performance up being low on shaders, didn't know about the extra engine. Looking forward to grabbing a few of these.

Performance per watt... this is very bad for Nvidia.

Edit: Newegg has them in stock! Two 6870's on the way for me~!
