Certain 7800GT's are likely to have un-lockable pipelines. Thus, we have a good contender for the price-to-performance ratio winner, depending on how much ATI's upcoming flagships retail for.

it'll do better, theres no doubt about that...but it's HOW much better is the point to be seen.....considering though it's only like...$50 more expensive than a PCI-E 6800GT it'd be worth it especially if you could unlock the pipelines, but overall I thought the 7xxx was a let down.

the 7800GT is definatly faster than a X800XT-PE. the architecture runs circles around the X800's.
