thats what 130% of an 8800Ultra means (100% = stock 8800Ultra speed + 30% Performance increase from one)

well ati doesn't have anythign that matches the ultra yet, and the gx2 goes past the ultra even more.. but in all honesty I hope ATI's card beat the pants off it. ^^

yeah you heard right. XD

only because then nvidia might be forced to release a real 9 series. lol

I will say it looks mean with that cooler. I wonder how noisy it's going to be though.

I hope ATI beats nvidia so i can go back to an Intel chipset instead of having to use Nvidia chipsets for dual card support.

Currently, but if there is a market for it someone will fill the need.
