"The Xbox 2 VPU is supposed to have a real peak pixel fill rate of 4 gigapixels per second, which doesn’t sound too impressive either considering today’s graphic chip specs. We’ll have to wait for the official announcement regarding this matter to make further conclusions."
But doesn't the 6800Ultra have a fill rate of 6.4 gigapixels?.
