i'm sorry, you're right on both accounts. I apologize.
I am at loss however as to why you specifically linked to the benchmarks at Tom's but not to the page where the EAX HD claim was made since it was on the 10th page. just something to consider so that it will cut down on misunderstandings.
your original post is also somewhat misleading in saying that you read an article that says EAX HD is possible, implying that the author said this, when in fact it was nvidia who told him or someone else that it would be possible. he doesn't actually know for sure.
with all the fluff nvidia has made with NV30, I won't be holding my breath over their promises.
