Like I said earlier, performance looks about equal as some of the benchmarks had the X800XT winning and I still think X800 owners have no reason to get the 1.2 patch as it dropped performance and introduced "unintentional" bugs.

But whatever makes you feel better I guess LOL!

I am not sure where you saw them running the benchmarks with the lower quality shadows. There is really only one level that has the shadow bug and it's the Boat level that no one is even testing from what I have seen.
