Exactly. All at a lower power envelope.
It's pretty awesome, the bandwidth nearly halved from the HD6850, even the shaders decreased.
People were wondering if it would perform as well as the HD5770 or just beat it. But here again, AMD proved it.
With a GPU smaller than HD5770, to the performance between HD6850/6870, at a slightly lower price point than them, AMD has indeed hit the spot.
