only slightly better than the GTX.

If Nvidia prices a single card that high ever again, all AMD has to do is release their Sea Island card at a much lower price that offers ~90% of the performance.
HD4870 versus GTX 280 anyone?
THe 8800GT was hundreds lower than the GTX and Ultra, yet it was only slower by 5-15%. Guess which card ended up being heralded as one of the greatest GPU of all time, and which card is now becoming a collector's item?
