Yes, good point. I suppose they have a history of producing a budget version using the newer architecture which will likely perform just as well or better than the 970. Perhaps in a smaller form factor also. Before my 970 was GTX 260, which looks like the hulk compared to other cards these days half the width which out perform it.
