I'm going to play it safe and see how ATI's are going to perform against the Nvidias that will be out at that time. It seemed that Nvidia was rushing it, i wonder what kind of corners they might have cut if any? I know for sure they didn't cut the price.
NVidia spent 4 years developing this card. I don't call that taking shortcuts.
This card is also twice as fast as ATI's best card, in a day when new cards typically are considered good if they get half that much additional performance over current cards.
Wrong, and wrong. I like whichever card is currently the best, and I'm on nobody's mailing list.
Ok Nividia Fanboy. You must be on the mailing list.

Thanks for helping prove my point. You must've been looking at the low-res comparisons. Anyone can do well at 1024x768. NVidia clobbers ATI at hi-res even with everything cranked to maximum settings, and hi-res is what some of us care about.
My expression 'twice as fast' was close enough. The reviews I've seen paint a consistent picture that's pretty close to that. Everyone's numbers are slightly different, so I used a generalization.
Doom 3 4xAA 8xAF: ATI=55.9FPS NV=59.4FPS Difference = 5% FEAR 4xAA 8xAF: ATI=24.0FPS NV=33.0FPS Difference = 27% Oblivion: Outdoors: ATI=14.1FPS NV=21.6FPS Difference = 35% Indoors: ATI=73.7FPS NV=91.3FPS Difference = 19% Oblivion Avg Difference = 27%

You didn't specify the resolution. They test everything from 1024x768 up to 25xx whatever. I was referring to the upper resolutions, not the lower or mid resolutions. <_<
I'm not trying to cause a ruckus, but I did see big differences in all three reviews linked by this thread, but those big differences were mostly in the highest resolutions. The cards are much more competitive in the mid to lower resolutions.
