AnandTech: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT: The Only Card That Matters

seems the gt performs pretty close to the gtx.

True and at the same time funny if you look charts from Nvidia the GTS is suppose to be better, but in reality from what have shown the Performance Preview Articles is not.

GeForce 8800

Nvidia have the "mania" to make equivalent of current video cards and make them lower in some technical spec but higher in others that way is making a equivalent of the card more cheaper and at the same time they extend the lineup.

The 2900XT is a TERRIBLE piece of hardware. I'm so glad I didn't jump on the 2900PRO bandwagon - I was in fact quite close to doing so...

Crysis is the new Oblivion....

Oblivion was far ahead of it's time.

There always has to be a game that will be benchmarked as a standard becuase of how far it's graphics are ahead of it's time.

You have to realize they are benching against current 640mbs. the new ones are supposed to have more shaders in which bringing the 8800GT back down to the bottom of the todem pole "supposedly".

Thats becasue Oblivion was horribly coded just like Test Drive Unlimited. I play it quite easily.
