yes they are. It just means they can be used on 8800's aswell.

IMO the 8800 drivers could still use alot of work. I accually think ATI is surpassing Nvidia with driver quality.

i don't think we can say that yet, they're playing catch up. ATI haven't released they're "next generation" cards yet so they're still coding drivers on a pretty familiar architecture whereas nVidia's new cards have changed quite remarkably from the 7 series cards.

True.. we'll have to wait and see how ATI's drivers will stack up against Nvidia's

Indeed. the 8800's have a very different architecture; having unified shaders, and being the first DirectX 10 card out.

ATI hasn't released their next generation card. They'll have to make new drivers for it, when it's released.

That being said, I think the R600 may have a performance advantage over the 8800's, regardless of drivers.

It should.. The 8800's came out in November wasn't it? Its april now.. ATI has had that much time to analyze the competition and possablily improve on it... If ATI can't manage to beat a card that was made about 6 months ago they could be in trouble.

lol lets try not to turn this into another ATI vs Nvidia thread.. lol
