NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT

NVIDIA still has no competition at the high end when it comes to the 8800 GTX and Ultra. The GTX and Ultra offer the fastest single GPU video card gaming solutions on the planet. At the GeForce 8800 GTS level though, there is plenty of competition with the AMD/ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT. While this video card started out quite rough for AMD, we are finding now with the latest drivers that it is doing quite well in games we have tested. We will forego all discussion about power and focus on performance. We have analyzed performance in several DX10 games now including Lost Planet, Call of Juarez, BioShock, World in Conflict, and the DX9 games Half Life 2: Episode 2 and Team Fortress 2/Portal and even Enemy Territory Quake Wars. We are consistently finding that the Radeon HD 2900 XT competes well with the 8800 GTS, sometimes offering a better gameplay experience. Of course, what you guys really want to know is how they all perform in Crysis and Unreal Tournament 3, and in this evaluation we will find out.
