ATI prepping RV870 refresh?

FUD Zilla claims ATI is working on a refresh of its RV870 GPU to combat NVIDIA's Fermi:
They did this with 4890, the first gigahertz card and got quite a lot of attention so you can easily expect a new 58x0 card with pretty much the same agenda. We don’t know any specs at this time, but we know that the company is working on such a card.

Before this card comes out you can expect huge price cuts on Radeon HD 58x0 parts, but this will only happen when ATI's sales start to suffer due to GF100 Fermi launch.
