    It seems Nvidia will have the advantage in TMUs / textures, and ROPs /
    while ATI / AMD have the advantage in shader and flops performance.

    This is not even concidering the introduction of R700 aka HD 48x0 X2
    with dual RV770 GPUs on one board.

    What a twat. You are so stupidly silly. You put on your NV55 tinhat
    when you have to begrudgingly give Nvidia some credit, then you go
    back to your Airhead-Raid alias when you hallucinate and believe ATI
    marketing hype.

    What kind of nitwit are you? You just babble and babble about graphics
    cards, searching for the most obscure and unreliable sources to fit
    whatever distorted perception grabs you that day. The truth is that
    you don't even buy graphics cards. You are probably using an original
    Radeon DX7 card in whatever clunker of a PC you have to "getz on duh

    Jesus, anybody that still uses that idiot Charlie Dimerjian on The
    Inquirer as some kind of even half believable source is more of a
    technical retard than that buffoon.

    The Geforce GTX 280 comes out in a few weeks, about the same time as
    the Radeon HD4850, and preliminary synthetic benchmarks are already
    showing the HD4850 is slightly faster than a 9800 Ultra where the GTX
    280 is more than 30% faster than a 9800 Ultra. The HD4850 will be a
    lot cheaper but then its performance is not much beyond the 9800 Ultra
    and will be priced about the same.

    Give me a break. You know you are too much of a twit to ever get a
    dual-GPU card, so why even bring it up. Seriously, you seemed to be
    half a nitwit when you were Cyg-Anus the Bringer of Imbalance but you
    have just grown more stupid and psychotic over time. Why haven't you
    adopted RV770 as another one of your psycho-schizo aliases, fuckwit?

    Airhead-Raid's closet full of psychotic aliases:

    Oh I'm aware of that. I wasn't talking about the number of shader
    units / stream processors in GT200 (240) vs RV770 (480), but the total
    floating point performance that's currently expected. GT200 was
    expected to provide 1 to 1.3 TFLOPs but is now thought to provide only
    0.933 TFLOP, while the smaller, less complex RV770 XT with fewer
    transistors is expected to provide 1 TFLOP.


    That said, GT200 is a very highend chip while RV770 is more like upper
    mid-range if you think about it. RV always stood for the value
    yes, the real fight will be between GTX280 vs R700 (the X2 version
    with 2 GPUs)

    Hehe, I guess so :)
