You do realise that the GTX580 came out a full month before the HD6900 series right?
OT: Can't wait for Kepler, should be an absolute beast in the high-end market. AMD might know how to make bang for buck cards, but Nvidia are the kings of single GPU performance. All I hope is that the dual GPU Kepler doesn't go down the same path as the GTX590 and have corners cut just to save a few bucks. Please Nvidia, make your dual GPU card right this time!
Bit sad to see the release still ~6 months away but I'd rather wait an extra month or two for some truly awesome performing cards than get a die shrink of a previous gen card now. Yes AMD, I'm looking at you. I know AMD will be releasing truly new 28nm chips around Feb/March but I think their first few iterations are going to be essentially HD6950/6970 die shrinks?
We all remember how Fermi turned out, well worth the 6 months wait right?
I don't really see the point waiting, AMD will have a single-GPU card out fairly soon, which matches/beats a GTX590/6990, and has OC headroom.
