Looks like it's coming out around the same time Intel's Sandy Bridge processors for the Mac Pro are supposed to come out.

So what you're saying is that the new Mac Pros will have a 6000 series GPU? :p

I'll be very impressed if the new MP gets the latest GPUs.

We are usually left a generation behind.

4870 was released 6 months after the 2008 MP.
5870 was released 6 months after the 2009 MP.
6870 was released 3 months after the 2010 MP.

We could be lucky here and the 7870 will be released with the 2011 MP :p

I think it's safe to say that the 2011 MP's will ship with the 6000 series :p
