8800GTX Ultra review shows close performance w 2900XT

The min speed is insufficient for comfortable play at 1920x1200. By the way, the GeForce 8800 Ultra is ahead of the Radeon HD 2900 XT in the highest resolution, but the gap is a mere 2fps.
I was pretty suprised to see this. It seems that the 7.5 Catalysts did some wonders for the 2900XT. It even beat the Ultra in some situations. That memory bus is starting to be tapped I guess....

My 2900 XT will be here in a few weeks!


I'm glad that it is starting to be utilized properly.

Wow. I didn't think that the ATI drivers would help it so much. The problem is, I'm still seeing massive conflictions between websites. Some say it's close, others say the 2900 is horrible and others have a few tests where the 2900 beats the 8800 GTX.

Part of that is because with each driver release the performance of the 2900 gets better, and not all reviews are up to date.
But yeah, still too early for me to form an opinion...

I'm suprized that it beats out the 8800GTX half the time, and the 8800GTS most of the time....with the exception of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

However, noone plays that crappy game anyway.
