Actually Nvidia was always better, other than 3dfx of course, nvidia was good up until the point of the FX series really, that's when they went downhill, now they're coming back, they did a great job with the 6800U, but by no means does it pull ahead from the x800xt.. the xt in most cases has performed better.

x800=More hardware power. 6800=More software support (with the new Far Cry patch, for example.)
