Because it WAS like an 8800 at launch, except much less driver maturity. Nvidia claimed they took 5 years developing 8000 architecture before it was released, meaning the only thing it can be compared to is and 8800 at launch, which it beats.

Pros: great fps (on most games), 512mb vram, 320 stream processors
Cons: immature drivers!!!1
the way ATI reads stream processors nvidia would have 384 on the GTX and GTS has 288

in reality the H2900XT has 64 stream processors @ 740mhz that do 5ops per clock

8800GTS is 96 stream processors @ 1.2ghz that do 3ops per clock

8800GTS is 128 stream processors @ 1.35ghz that do 3ops per clock

The 2900XT is on shelves? Guess I don't keep up with the pseudo-race between Nvidia and ATI as much as I thought. I just looked at the benchmarks and realized it's being compared to the GTS. Were people actually waiting for this ATI card? I thought ATI was coming out with something comparable or, dare I say, maybe better, than the GTX. huh...

its power draw, the 8pin has more power lol, without it youd need 3 4pin PCIe connectors
