Like said above, the X1900XT isn't a new generation. Its a newer card in the same generation. A generation is Radeon 9000, Radeon X800, Radeon X1000, and the undisclosed future name of Radeon 6000. Similarly, on Nvidia's side, it would be; GeForce FX, GeForce 6, GeForce 7, and the almost guaranteed GeForce 8.
And quit this arguing. G80 comes out in June/July, and R600 comes out in Q4 '06. Incase you can't comprehend that, the newest GeForce generation is coming out before ATi, AGAIN, just like it has the last 3 generations...
ATi's X1800XT is on par with the 7800GTX. ON PAR WITH. They had 6 months to improve, and they still just got it to about the 7800GTX's level. Thats kinda sad.
