Umm, what? The FX series was still based on the 3dfx architecture I believe. The GeForce 6 series, which was of nvidia's own making, was a massive improvement over the FX series.

Might be thinking of a different series.

The 6800Ultra failed the SM 3.0 tests, so claiming support is also debatable

Dosen't matter. It's a single card, and it's faster. The fact that it is using two GPUs means nothing.

If it gets a higher framerate, it gets a higher framerate. Simple as that.

Hmm..dual core for ~$450 that out performs a single core that costs ~$550.

No brainer

Lets hope the numbers are spot on.

It's pretty obvious that a dual core cpu would beat a single. The same can be said for a dual gpu card in some cases, including this one. And aside from some issues that a few games have with multi-gpu setups, what does it really matter? If the 4870X2 is faster, it's faster.
