Why you ask? Because it would force Intel to lower their prices of c2d and c2q to stay competitive. That's a win for us consumers.
Yes, I too want to beat Q6600 and even the low end 45nm Intel quad-cores - Q8300, Q9300 and so on. Thats gona cut prices somehow. But to say/hope that Deneb will get close to Nehalem is just not realistic.

In a nutshell AMD released GPUs that scale better and made a killing in the performance:cost department.
48xx scale better? From all the reviews I've read the conclusion is something like that:
gtx280 >> 4870, gtx 260 > 4850
And now with 180.xx even gtx260 >> 4870
But yes for a few months nvidia was gettin raped by ati, what was dissapoiting was that ati still couldnt get the second place in the gpu market but hell for two years nvidia was dominating in the market, it was somehow refreshing and the gpu's were graet price/performance as you said. But most important is that nvidia get fucked and I hope they learned the lesson now - great gpus + crazy price = you get raped by your competition. Im really curious what the 55nm g200 has to offer.
