EXACTLY! Wow, someone gets it. +Rep

EDIT: I did notice that it has a 825core/2100mem speed opposed to 743/1650 of the normal retail XT, but I still don't see it beating the GTX at the moment. I want to see a Head 2 Head with the 8800GTX, would be very interesting results.

EDIT: To tell you the truth, I HOPE this card or the the XTX (if there ever really is one) DOES beat the 8800GTX.... being a GTX owner myself, you know I'm serious. The market needs the balance and it will shut some Nvidia fanboys up (maybe). (And if you get pissed about the last statement it pretty much proves you are one, lol).

Did anyone actually click on the link for the 1GB model and check out the benchmarks? Because they're not actually bad at all.

I had heard that the reviews were flawed. (A friend of mine is at Co-Op at that store. Says they are very Bias reviews. But who knows lol.)
