everyone knows that AMD has the advantage of its shrinking process as well as the edge in low power consumtion (really both pros are,in large to a significant extent inherently tied...), allowing them to cram more 'stream processors' in the same space.

the strong point for Nvidia, is that each of their steams get more x3 done, but since they are behind on the 'size' , they have to limit the number both in terms of physical parts as well as clock frequencies... hte last Fermi enthusiastic parts proved quite intensive temp-wise and pushed the limits of whats acceptable watt-wise

at this point, AMDs wisest decision is to go ALL OUT with a electricity hog for a high-end part, even forcing floks to opt for a 1k+ psu upgrade! hardcore fanatics dont skimp... and then later offer a ultra efficient card for the mainstream to counter balance the innitial shock... hey people were shocked by the 470, but wanted one anyway, why not raise the bar?

besides, and in addition they can also spend (invest) an additional 20$ (what would cost us folks 40+) for an aftermarket cooling solution for thier refferences. thier resources are best spent developing GPU/CPUs, let the the experts in thermal dissipiation shine and share thier experience and wisdom... for a 600-700$ part, its worth saving the hassle..

with a 1.8Ghz 6000-7000 stream part, i'd like to see what Nvidia would do next... anyway that's my 20 cents.. 

PS

in case of a total knock out, AMD should temporarily discontinue the part and refocus on architechtural design innovations ... what good is it if there is no competition?  Nvidia deserves more than just Tegra, long live the evergoing battle for the consumer!

I love the battle between AMD and nVidia it means better prices for me.

AMD or nVidia hmm.......... which one will give me the best bang for the buck?

Well we will see in about a month, I just hope I am pleasantly surprised
