I 100 percent agree.

I made a change for you though. Its a dual GTS. And when 2 GT's in SLI beat anything out there, this should and will be doing better. i think if you have CF 3870's or SLI GT's you wont need to upgrade till this christmas anyway...he11 you already have the fastest, price to performance setup anyway

Whew........I hope this isn't true for the sake of people waiting for the 9800GX2.......that's very low performance for the money. However may the drivers need some work......only time will tell. That's supposedly why the released it.

I would also like to see actual game benches.

I think a lot of people are mis-interpreting the results. Firstly all these tests are being run on Windows Vista, add to that it's running on a heavily CPU bound resolution of 1280x1024 and running on a stock Q6700 @ 2.66Ghz.

For the record on a Q6600 @ 3Ghz in XP i only sustain ~13200 with a Single 8800GTX @ Stock Speeds.

There better be a 9900 series. They should have just made these cards an 8900 series they aren't much better to declare a new series.

Well I'm happy that I didn't waste any cash on my 3870x2. As much as people are unhappy with the geforce 9 series benchmarks, I'm glad they aren't doing as well as everyone was expecting. This is better for ATI and AMD as a whole... and that means more competition and ultimately lower prices for us.

As some one mentioned before this is only 3dmark, lets wait for some game benches and then we can safely assume which card is the new king... Just look at Ultra, it scores about 11k+ on stock, and the X2 scores about 14k+ on stock, yet in games it barely beats it, therefore my point is clear, wait for the games benches and then complain!

All of this is valid, but they're comparing the other cards with the same OS and CPU, which means that those variables have been eliminated. Obviously we can't compare our system as closely, as there can be a quite huge difference depending on system BIOS settings, background processes, etc.
