Exactly. This may be the Ultra's competitor as well...

My old X1900GT seemed to have better image quality than my 8800gts, if ATI could release a good DX10 card that really beat the 8800gtx, i'd switch.

I guess that explains the scores.

So they're saying 8800Ultra SLI still beats overclocked HD 2900XT GDDR4 CrossFire, Ultra speeds can easily be handled by GTX with lots of headroom and from what I've seen so far, HD 2900XT tops out at ~860Mhz. Don't get me wrong, I'd choose the HD 2900XT over a GTS, but not over a GTX because I find physics accelerator much more important than integrated sound especially with the existence of a variety of decent sound cards. GTS probably does have physics accelerator too, but its raw power just isn't up there, and screw Ageia.

I pulled this off another site which has also been talking about this. This was what one person said

"#1: E******** is breaking their NDA. If you don't know what that is, go talk to AMD. All reviewers and e-tailers are currently under it when it comes to future cards.

#2: Do they have it in stock? No. This has not been released for widespread distribution.

#3: I will not disclose the MSRP but your site is above it with the $800 they are SUPPOSEDLY selling this card for before this $100 rebate.

#4: That E******** sticker is just a placeholder so they don't disclose the manufacturer's name on the cooler.

In short this is a grab for attention which will not go down too well with the suppliers of E********."

Thinking they would be correct.
