ATI Radeon HD 2900 XTX DOOMED?!

This is ATI's flagship/enthusiast card set to compete against the Geforce 8800GTX. I used to love ATI when they released 8500s and R300 series. I'm a big fan of efficiency and ATI had it back in the days. Now look at this 12-inch beast...

DailyTech Benchmark

That is pathetic! They did mention the drivers were still release candidate so there is still some hope for ATI.

yeah that's really odd, but I've read that the 2900XT was actually better than the geforce 8800 GTX, so this is weird to see.

Supposedly the XT is meant to be going up against the lower 8800, not the GTX. But we need to wait for prices.

Either ATI REALLY screwed up, or they're drives are flawed. I'd bet for the second one since ati has always had crappy drivers, but tend to have fairly nice cards. If all else fails I'm sure using non-ati drivers should increase performance.

XT is up against 8800GS/GT but the XTX is the competition against GTX.
