Default ATI HD 2900 XT 512Mb vs NVIDIA 8800 GTS 320Mb Review

We take an in-depth look at how the new ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT 512Mb stacks up to the lower price NVIDIA Geforce 8800 GTS 320Mb; comparing overclocked performance and scaling as well as Crossfire tested with multiple games. Can the new HD 2900 XT outrun the current mid/high range GTS performance champ? Let's find out.

hmm maybe it's worth mentioning that catalyst 7.6 is released. In most reviews on the internet, the 2900XT is faster than the 8800GTS 640MB and almost as fast as 8800GTX...

Geoffrey tested the Cat 7.6 but did not find performance to be noticeable better than 7.5 in his games

Why no comparison of the noise and power consumption of the two?

Can be (approx) compared with result of the GTS here: http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=get...&articID=5 61
but indeed, next round giving them a nice head2head comparison is needed

On most forums i read that the cat 7.6 gave a nice performance boost. But if it's tested, it's tested

Right on, minor bug fixes and small performance increases here and there, nothing special in the end, I expected more from ATI: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=149354

well, the driver releases are MONTHLY, I'm sure they have months were they focus on certain features; be it performance, bugfixes or other things, never all at the same time
