If we we're talking about Nvidia then I would say that would be likely, but since we're talking about ATI I highly doubt they're going to hike the prices up.

If we say that the HD4870 is roughly 10% slower than the GTX280 then it would work out somewhat like this:
GTX280 = 100
HD4870 = 90

Then, assuming that HD4870X2 would scale 1.8x
HD4870X2 = 162

So, theoretically it could be up to 60% faster than the GTX280 and if you figure two HD4870's are ~$600, they can still afford to sell it for less.
Also, at 8xAA, even a single HD4870 is faster than the GTX280 since the performance hit going from 4xAA to 8xAA is incredibly low.

I'm excited to see this technology come into play. It's good to see AMD making innovation in the graphics area if not in the CPU.....maybe their CPUs will get a turn in a generation or two.

Ring Bus, GONE!

the new communication "hub" is more like having a stack of multilane overpasses, with very tightly curved onramps for porsche's only. kills alot of latency with the ring bus ( wich was cool for its time ) and allows over twice the bandwidth where actually needed i beleive.

as seen here: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3341&p=9

One very important thing that a lot of people havent been talking about lately, is that with this new chip and the way they are going to combine the gpu's, the computer should see only one video card, meaning you should be able to use 4 of these, meaning 8-gpu's, but this is only if it is true, and they fix the issues they are already having with 3-4 cards.

The interconnect thingy, is it hardware based or driver based?
