The benchmarks, such as 3DMark06, are not far off between the 8800 GTX and HD 2900XT in many cases. It's the games that are bringing up the discrepancies, and usually this is due to drivers and the support therein, so that is why many people are suggesting that drivers are the issue. It doesn't necessarily have to do with people being fanboys.
It is very annoying that people are often labeled "fanboys" because they disagree with someone in the opposite camp.
