Default 6600 - 7800

is it a mistake, or does the 6600GT really have a faster clock speed than the 7800GTX?

on a site i was looking at, it says the 6600GT has 500Mhz, and the 7800GTX has 430Mhz

is this correct?

Just like intels and amds dude...clock speed alone means nothing.

It's completely different cores, different number of pipes, and just plain DIFFERENT

A single 7800 GTX can run circles around SLI'd 6600 GT's. Here:-

Yeah, I'm not sure whether all the info is 100% accurate, but it's better than a kick in the arse for those of use who want the no bull**** facts about X GPU vs Y GPU.
