Your a little late to the game. Go back a few weeks and find the thread about these.

lol maybe at 1024x768... people have been saying the same about a card that can handle Crysis with every new card and it hasn't happened, although ATI is back in the game so that MIGHT change things too (but I think both companies hit a brick wall right now)

Only 2000? That's not a big improvement over 1600. Only 20%. Maybe there'll be larger architecture changes.

rv770 has only 800sp's and is a single gpu solution, so if rv870 has 2000sp's that will be a true 2.5x improvement. btw, yes that means that R800 will be 4000sp's.
