Default Nvidia, say goodbye to your "l33t" 6800 Ultra

Unveiling their latest demon-hunter, ATI has given Toms Hardware a test run of their latest card.

My jaws are still on the floor.

Be prepared for total war........and if this is a war, ATI has clearly won by a longshot.

Sign me up for an ATI AIW 9800XT Pro. It will be cheeeeeap! Well, relatively speaking.

I am not at all convinced with the results from the Tomshardware review. The XT800 XT falls behind on a lot of benchmarks but does catch up with the 6800 Ultra due to its high performance using AA and AF image enhancers. When the XT800 XT does "outperform" the 6800 Ultra it is only by a very small amount.

The Hexus review shows a much better result if you are a fan of ATI.
