Its called back-fill, the typical strategy from Nvidia and AMD is to release the best 3 cards up front and then fill the lower end cards up(aside from dual gpu card).
I assume it's a marketing ploy to keep the prices as highest as possible for the entire lineup.
Edit, these should be nice in SLI.
Any chance for that review?
