The 280 GTX is closer to 50% improvement over the 8800 and 9800 cards and is rarely faster than those cards in SLI.
Well we are splitting hairs but there is a significant impact depending upon the game and what settings are used to show the comparitive difference. Both of the 8800GTX tests used high res and AA which usually widens the gap between older and newer products. The GTX 280 test is no AA on a game that generally runs bad anyway.

If I pull a best case scenario like World in Conflict, with high resolutions and AA the GTX 280 really shows what it can do if it stretches its legs.
