Yeah...calm down. I think he meant that nVIDIA can only beat the X850 XT PE with SLI. No single card from nVIDIA (like the 6800 Ultra) can beat it. It's obvious that ATI sucks with mid-range and upper mid-range (the X300, X600 and X700 series all suck balls), but in the high-end range (which is like couple percent of the whole graphics card market) ATI holds that castle...until the 6950 Ultra comes out, that is.

Heh...I still don't know how I got that score. I'm pretty amazed myself.

Why does it matter? Why does ATI focus so much of it time towards 1-2% of the market that uses the x850 XT PE? I'm serious, most of us can't afford it.

Also don't quote synthetic benchmarks. They aren't accurate. Individual tests are more accurate.

Lets face it, NVidia owns ATI by the balls when it comes to a business plan. Nvidia actually has more backing it (popular chipset)... a greater grip over the market (mid and upper-mid range markets). Money man is not sensible..

who cares what their business plan is? all im worried about is what my games look like when i plug in the card, maybe ati will fail in the long run but for right now the x800 series+ rocks.
