A significant chunk of those are from the 512bit interface ONLY.

I find it highly amusing that people are wowing over the 512-bit memory bus with gddr3 memory, when it has been proven that a 256-bit memory bus with gddr5 memory gives a higher memory bandwidth, at less cost, consuming less power, making the die smaller and helping to reduce heat output.

You will really pay for that 512-bit bus, where as ati owners will be loving the cheeper 256-bit bus.

GDDR5 might not be the cheapest memory out there since it's very new and rare technology.
Still probably a lot cheaper then that huge memory interface.

Why would a 1 GPU card be bigger than a Dual GPU card of identical architecture? Eh?

9900-series will probably be the upgrade I've been looking for..
