Two comments: First, page 21, the 1920x1200 graph, the scores for the 7900's and 1900XT are not in agreement with the bar graph on page 4 - the 7900's scores are way high, while the 1900XT is low...

Second, am rather curious why the 7900GTX is included in both the premium and high end categories, when it's MSRP is $100 more than the 1900XTX? It's nice to have the reference point in the high end chart, as it's indicative of what an overclocked 7900GT would perform like, but stating it to be in the same price range as the 1900XT even at the time of publication is a bit of a stretch.

Totally bias review. 7600gt are less noisy?...oh, come on. 7600gt VIVO, 128bit and are clocked 2 high for their own good. HIS 1800gto ICEQ 3 at 700/800 with 16pipes for $189 kills it.

Nvidia-biased? The prices say it all.

Look at Bo_Fox's article. It makes so much sense! If the 7900GTX was tested at High Quality settings, it would actually be just a little slower than the X1900XT. The 7950GX2 would hardly be any faster than the X1900XTX in most games.

Yeah, I can see the shimmering with my 6800 Ultra when I set it to default "Quality". Very distracting in UT2004, Battlefield 1942, BF2, etc... Looks horrible when Nvidia "cheats" in its undersampling with mainly bilinear 2X AF texture layers, switching with 16X AF textures based on which mipmap gets the priority in display. It even looks like Z-fighting, but appears ALL over the textures.

Yup, bench all the cards with high setting, those shimmering mips reported by others are the reason I allways keep the setting at high in drivers, be it ATI or Nvidia.
