King of the Ocean?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I feel like ATI and Nvidia are each sitting on a platform on top of a wave. Nvidia's wave rides nice a high, followed by ATI's. Back and forth the waves go, seemingly a thousand times a day...

So first the X2900XT was a disastrous launch.

Then it is a good price / performance card.

Now it is the performance leader?

What is this?

Has the X2900XT really improved with the lastest drivers, or is 3dMark06 just its only highlight?

I almost got a X2900XT... They are such a great deal.

I almost grabbed one up as well.

I think you'd really have to own both 8800 and 2900XT to tell for sure which performs better... but then again one card may perform better with different combinations of hardware. It's really tough to tell, I think.
