    Me, I'll never argue in favour of it, but that doesn't take away from the truth of your post. It's not that the rebranding suddenly became morally justifiable, it's just that it pales into insignificance in light of all the features you have enumerated.

    This series seems rushed... Might wait for a while see if they do any changes to them

    rushed? the 6870 was pinned against the 460 1g and often even beats the 470 :)

    As someone else said, the 6870 has:
    GTS 450 die size
    GTX 460 power consumption
    GTX 470 performance

    Yes but this card should be beating the 4XX everywhere, probably the only ups are, 6800 consumes less power, able to beat the lower end cards and not the high end it should be competing with
