Or would it be like the 8800GTS 320 and 640...where theres not that much difference, when comparing the same resolution performance.

But still one 8800GTX can beat one HD2900XT 1GB at stock speeds

3dmark06 is not important, gaming performance is the most important thing..

Why they didn't they compare 1 card vs 1 card ? Most people are not going to buy 2 video cards in SLI or crossfire !!

They tested it on Intel QX6700 overclocked to 5029MHz !!! I thought that only QX6850 could reach that CRAZY speed !!

The magic of LN2...wouldn't he just have to raise the multiplier, to get there easier?

No idea, like I said I'm not 100% on this. Regardless, the link I posted got a 3dmark of 23,000 and the new record is only in the 25,000's so... couldn't be much of a difference.

Yeah, I've seen Pentium 4s at 8Ghz with liquid nitrogen and other extreme cooling. Once heat isn't a problem you can find the physical limitations of the hardware.
