ok, so, I still proved you guys wrong about you saing that nvidia blows x800 just with pipes. There is no other excuse to say the 2 cards are not the same. And there is an x850 out too and that is good.

Blah, both cards are awesome. At this point in the game you'll be a winner with either the Nvidia 6800ultra or ATI x800xt...

If i may, the X800 XT has a better fill rate than the 6800GT and Ultra.

by the way, i think it's pretty funny how that website is all in German.

Both cards have almost identical specs and apparently perform the same!

The X800XT has always been a worthy competitor of the 6800 series with its 16-pipes. The X800 Pro, although priced the same, has NO WAY of competing with the 6800GT. ATI made a rediculous move there.
