SO, HOW FAST is the new X1900 line of cards? A reliable little bird called, umm, little bird, told me that the top end card beats a GTX/512 by 10-20 points in 3DMark06.
While some games track 3DMark closely, others do not, so ATI will probably be more than that little bit ahead on a number of games, but this new card is probably not the clean kill ATI would want it to be. The top end G71 should have little trouble eclipsing it in most things.
