    i allways skip a few gens and got my 50+ yet again

    3870 - 3870x2 - 5870 - 5870/5850 - 7970 it did involve some common sense though and being skint a lot:D or there would be more in that list

    anyway,my main point is that 50% is easy doable next arch change for either vendor, both will be hitting out with some interesting tech, maxwell and its 1tb/s memory cache and as for pirate islands, anyones guess there , my guess would include on die l4 cache 256-512mb and 4-8 x86 cores probably jaguer(probably high end gpu though) and both these hit that 50% plus potential you speak of, Tsv(through silicon vias) could shake up the game if used right and creatively.

    Dude I have the same 5870/5850 cards right now. How much was the performance increase after a 7970?? But no exaggerations please. :)
