It consume slightly less power at idle than 8800GTX, but under load it consumes much more power

Most reviews show the idle consumption to be almost half that of the 2900.
Though Max load consumption is more than that of the 2900, but its not too bad..

yeah.. This card is good, but not that great. I guess I am waiting until the 9800 stuff comes out. I cant wait to see some 3Dmark scores with this thing.

I don't think that's right. 3870 uses 105W, which is massively less than R600 or G80 (less than half), and less than an 8800 GT by a small amount.
at idle, the 3870's are underclocked to 300MHZ, and use much less power than 8800 GT's.

I would think that a card with two RV670's would have a TDP of ~210W or maybe slightly more.

I'm pretty sure G80 uses about 230-250W or so under load, and R600 uses about 280W
