The HD 5970 apparently packs dual RV870 chips each clocked at 725MHz and 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1000MHz on dual 256-bit buses. If you're thinking these are HD 5850 clocks, you are right. However, the HD 5970 has 2 x 1600 stream processors and 2 x 80 texture units, twice that of an HD 5870.

Looks like performance is going to be between 5850 crossfire and 5870 crossfire. What do you guys think?

Ever since I first read about these new cards (59xx) I started wondering what ATI has planed for the Fermi launch. And I think these cards are not the what ATI has up its sleeve. From what I remember an ATI spokesman said that there are more surprises down the road and that is interesting :D
