by this cas eu mean specifically 3d mark right? because the x800xt IS faster at ps 2.0 than nv40. theres not even an arguement. its also a fact that nv40 is slower at 3.0 than 2.0, just like atis card will be when its released. just like both cards are slower at 2.0 than 1.1. its so sad that people think that using shader 3.0 will actually increase performance.
