did you miss this

On the 7900s, latests specs have it with 24 pipes and a 625MHz Core Speed. Simply a die shrink to 90nm. If those specs hold true, it won't even come close to touching the X1900XT/X. Still, paitience is a virtue, but you'll have to wait until CeBit at the end of March.

Yep, kinda like the X1800XT and the 7800GTX. Though the gap was not very big between them, if the 7900 is still 24 pipe the gap will probably be much bigger.

Well, the 7900GTX is also supposed to be cheaper to fit it's performance. I think the starting price for the 7900GTX is set at $499.

You can get an X1900XT for under $480 if you know where to look...

That explains why the X1900XT's have dropped nearly $100 in price already. ATI's doing an excellent job with the X1900 series. I still can't believe they released the XTX version though with 25/50 increases in clocks for $50 more than the standard version. That's like 1.3mhz per dollar!
