Something that has me troubled is this: NV35 performs on par with the R9800pro in all games for the most part. A LOT OF GAMES. So why does ATI cards beat nVidia cards in 3DMark?!?
And how many Dx9 games have you seen benched with the 9800 and nv35? So far of the 3 benchmarks that test dx9 shaders, all 3 show the nv35 behind the 9800. As we don't have any dx9 games, they're all you have to go by so far. How well the nv35 does against the 9800 in dx7 and dx8 games has nothing to do with how well it will do against it in dx9 games.
