    1.5 gb

    I am hoping they take off about $50 for the 1.5GB version. Unless you go eyefinity or trifire, It will be worth getting the "gimped" version. I don't think these unlock which is why many still got the unlockable 2gb version of the HD 6950 instead of the locked 1gb version of the same card. If the two HD 6950s performed the same, I imagine the HD 7950s will too.

    Furthermore, if the HD 6950 reached "max potential" with 1GB, I would Imagine that the HD 7950 would also be able to reach it's potential (minus eyefinity) since it's not more than 50% performance increase over the HD 6950
