In what way is this a fair comparison? R6 can be compared to G80. The G80 isnt even out yet so I hope that it will be better then anything out right now, big deal.

It's just an Nvidia fanboy trying to say ATI isn't as good as Nvidia. Take these guys with a grain of salt, along with the publishers of that article. Jumping bean is right, the g80 needs to be compared with the r6, not ATI's placeholder card until they release the R6.

Look at it this way ya wingnuts... r6 isn't out...g80 is out TOMORROW. Anyone building a system from now until the r6 can bet their money on the G80. It will be the best single card out there times 2. That's big news no matter how you take it.

yea, but hopefully by the time the r600 comes out the g80 will be lowered in price...or maybe even an 8900gtx?! so either way ati is screwed for now and once the r600 comes out(unless there is no 8900).
