Thats true considering it was a brand new architecture and all and the GTX 280 and 260 are really just beefed up 8800 series hardware. However you cannot ignore the fact that in all the other test besides Crysis the Single GTX280 is killing any of the previous single 8800 or 9800 series cards on very very early drivers compared to very mature drivers on the 8800 and 9800 series.

Give it 2 months and the gap will widen even more.

I will not argue that fact but I really do not know what you guys expected.......I mean this is the same thing that happens with each new GPU release. No surprise to me at all.
