Thats cuz it isn't. Suddenly, after the 7900s come out it apparently gets a supercharge in all the benchmarks so that its beating the 7800GTX-512MB, which can hold it's own against the X1900s.
EDIT: Well, looking at those benchmarks, at the bottom of the page they have "Min" and "Max" FPS for 1280x1024 resolution. First thing I wonder about, is why are the FPS in the chart of 1280x1024 so close to the Max FPS? Another; weren't they able to get the mic FPS on those cards much below 100FPS? Shows the quality of their second-rate benchmarking tools, compared to Anandtech, HardOCP, Guru3D, or Xbit Labs.
Finally...why are the FPS in the 1280x1024 chart for the X1800XT higher than the "Max" FPS for the resolution listed at the bottom of the page?
