Release date of the $100 card? I am building a budget PC in June and was planning to buy the XFX Radeon 5670 for $100 (I know that there is a $80 5670, do not want).

Redo the 480 & 470 so that it puts out less heat and noise. Drop the crazy price to $250.oo and I will buy

It already exists. It's called a Radeon 5850 :)

This all seems very strange, and very un-Nvidia. Why would they release cards that compete against their existing 200-series cards?

Unless of course they are just rebadging the old chips as new ones. Cause it's not like they've ever done that before, right?

Hard to rebadge a part with no tesselation and gddr3 to one with tesselation and gddr5.

Since they haven't released full specs on any of the "new" chips whose to say it will support these functions?
