    The last I read anything about the 5870 for the Mac Pro was in September 2009.

    I could buy one now, but have to use Windows 7 on my 2009 Mac Pro. I really don't want to go back to Windows; I have my own Windows laptop for Flash development and use Macs for everything else...

    I'd love to see a 5970, but I'm not holding my breath...

    ATI 6000 series coming out soon, Apple is skipping the 5000 series for the upcoming 6870 card.

    It came to my mind that Apple will make use of a 5770 card rather than a 5870. Cheaper + less power drain.

    Haha, you don't really believe that, do you?

    I would rather expect apple to release the 5870 just in time for ATI's announcement of the 7000 series...
