Default 8800vsR600 What you think?

Not sure if anybody saw these results yet. I got the link from TheInquirer:

IT-review.net - R600 testing week - Wednesday

It is also at TheInquirer.net. Looks like the 8800 chipset owns but it could be drivers or many other things. But then again, the 8800 drivers are a work in progress as well.

Those benchmarks look weird. Don't trust the inquirer. Plus this news is old already:
ATI / AMD HD 2900 XTX - Owned By The GTX still?

Unbelievable, even 8800GTS outperforms HD2900XT !!!!

If those benchmarks are true, then I'm sure that ATI will die !!!
