Default 7900 now on sale!

Ive found the 7900 is now on sale, havnt seen any information around saying this but came across it whilst browsing overclockers!

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/7900_Series.html

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing this to say an X1900 XT, XT-X or 7800? Do we know for a fact it outperforms them?

I don't see what the hype is about the 7900, it doesn't seem much better than a 7800GTX.

you can run both at 16x if you have one of the new mobos, but they wont use nearly that much bandwidth.

its still an amazing card.... i wanna see benchmarks!!!
