i recall reading somewhere that the 7800 gtx was gonna use 3dc, although i think it was the inquirer so its most likely false. Now that the card is out.. im wondering if it does?

No they use a V8U8 format. Its 2:1 and doesnt provide the same compression as 3dc. Though technically they support it. But they dont support it fully. It'll surely make load times longer compared to 3dc. I'm not terribly sure about performance.
