R600 cores were taped out quite some time ago and worked well, and the R600 supposedly will be the faster of the two, but ATI is having the same problem that Nvidia is having with the G80,
The R600 core makes heat. And lots of it. It also consumes about 200W of psu staggering current. The G80 may come with a hybrid water/air cooler due to its temp issues, and the R600 was said to be worse... Perhaps they'll shrink the manufacturing process again..
I want to see how well unified shader gpus overclock
