Thats about right; GDDR5 runs at twice the speed of GDDR3. For example, GDDR3 at 900 MHz runs at 1800 MHz DDR; GDDR5 at 900 MHz runs at 3600 MHz QDR.GDDR5 at 128bit is just as fast as GDDR3 at 256bit apparently.
So, having GDDR5 and half the bus width pretty much evens things out.
If ATI is able to get Havok working with their cards, then I'm buying this.
