3D Mark06 might be "the benchmark" in the Far Easy
but around here most people dont want to sit in front of the PC and run 3D Mark06 all day.
11,400 3DMarks ?? If ATI cant turn those 3DMarks into FPS & Quality/HDR AA/AF advantages Nvidia will continue crying all the way to the bank as they get Spanked in 3D Mark06.
Hopefully ATI will turn out a winner this time around.
Don't forget that the G80's have been around for nearly a year and they are supposed to be coming out with some new GPU's over the next few months that should leave even leave the 8800GTX in the dust. Also the G80's are still selling like hot cakes, even though ATI is picking up steam I don't know if it'll be able to build up enough force to take any kind of lead.
However I will say that some future NVidia chipset concepts seem a little sketchy, but who knows. I'd like to see if Intel is going to revise the P35 or come out with something other than the X38 that has PCI-e 2.0.
