Rumors are all over the web regarding the pending release of ATI's Radeon 5800 series DX11 class graphics cards. We 'think' that the first released card will be the Radeon HD 5870 which is developed under codename Cypress.
From what we heard is that this card will be lined up directly against the GeForce GTX 285 pricing wise, the rumor is that this high-end DX11 class graphics card will get a pricetag of 299 USD.
Though I personally doubt it a little given the issues with the 40nm node, there is a a rumor that this graphics card would be based on a 40nm fabrication process.
