39fps - 6fps higher than the HD 7970 2GBs stock performance
but for the most part the HD 7970 2GB was still around 20 per cent faster than Nvidia's current single-GPU top dog, if only at ultra-high resolutions such as 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x AA.

Think BT might prefer my idea of their target audience.
Seems peoples' main critic of this card is based on price. The gtx580 was how much on launch? £380 to £430!
And prices have not actually been confirmed yet.
And for what percentage gain over the 480 ....10% While the 7970 is giving 9-72% over the current competion ....580 and the 6970.
And I know I have read, with the launch of a new top end card, from either AMD or nVidia, the point always being made that if you have the previous top end card then the price/performance gain is always gonna be small.
