I fail to see that we have a new "video card king". From what I've seen from that review is that the cards are pretty much evenly matched, but the X1900XTX still seems to be better in 1600 x 1200 and AA. But I do hear that the 7900GTX is a great overclocker and reaches 700mhz+ core 1800mhz memory on air. I am waiting till I see some OCed benches.
It says also that Nvidia said that there was a driver problem with FEAR and that AA in it slows it down. They say it will give a 20% - 30% AA performance increase but that might just be Nvidia trying to get people to buy their card at launch, especially seeing as how they have around the same performance as the X1900XT in other games with high res and AA and is definatly not a "20 - 30% increase".
I still don't know which I'm going to get. But there is going to be a price drop on the X1900s soon to counter the 7900GTX and I might buy it then.
I do not trust those anandtech reviews one bit. I'm not sure if they underclocked the X1900s or what but a 7800 GTX 512MB should not have almost identical frames on FEAR with 1600 by 1200 with AA.
