NVIDIA's Drew Henry told FUD Zilla that the upcoming Fermi GPU will be faster than anything available, including the new ATI Radeon HD 5870. The GPU maker also confirmed they're working on a dual-GPU version, and said the TDP for both the single and dual-GPU card should be similar to the numbers we've seen with the GeForce GTX 285 and GeForce GTX 295.
FUD Zilla also heard from one of NVIDIA's senior people that Fermi is on track for a late 2009 launch:
So if you are after the fastest and probably the best single GPU that can do a lot of cool computing, this might be the one for you. We still don’t know the price but we would not be surprised it if launches as $399 part for a single and probably $649 for dual. Of course, this is more of an educated guess rather than a fact that we can confirm.

5870 has Displayport. If Fermi does not, then I won't care how much faster Fermi is. Remember how fast the world changed over to DVI. Same thing is about to happen again, but to Displayport. 120hz, higher bit depths and 3D dispay techs are all going to need a far higher bandwidth than DVI.
