FiringSquad updated their article; there were some incorrect graphs in places.

Anyway, looks like ATI p\/\/n3d Nvidia in this.

It will be interesting to see what, if anything, nVIDIA has to say about this. If anything, I wish these got a little bit more into the fine details like the original [H] article did with Doom 3.

If these do hold up, I do think it is a bit sad that the 6800s come out so far behind the X800s. I had no doubt that pre-6800 NvIdIa cards would get creamed, but I was especting the 6800 to do better. I wonder why so many of the early, unofficial benchmarks showed the 6800 on even ground or even ahead? I do not feel so bad personally as it is still faster than my 9800xt would have been.

It is a bit worrisome that both cards were showing graphical defects, though I was able to play Doom 3 with my GT clocked to Ultra levels the whole time without any issues. I am not worried, but I would expect issues for many others.

The more I see of the game, the more I am impressed by it along with its overall speed. Doom 3 may have some nice graphics...in that one small room...completely in the dark...but I think Half-Life 2 will have a much nicer looking world.

Lots of little differences, good and bad, in shots from both cards...

Edit: The Gamers-Depot results do not show as extreme of a gap. However, it is the only site to test with a Chipzilla (Intel) chip. Bad AMD drivers by nvIDia? Also, note the (usual) architecture defference - when not using AA or AF, Gamers-Depot shows the results being even closer.

Edit 2: Whereas CounterSMACK is even closer:
