I don't think AMD is shooting themselves in the foot with an already sure bet. That card is the only thing that made the GTX280 come down to a point where many others are considering it. However, just as many ppl are holding out for the 4870x2 as well. AMD has already moved on to the next gen card anyway. That's where they can shoot themselves in the foot. If this monster comes to fruition then it will be truly a chip in AMD's armor that they put on in this series. If AMD's single GPU is only 20% faster than a 4870 while this boy is lurking around then the dual GPU model will only hope to match this thing at best.
