    No, I wasn't suggesting that - we tried to get Gainward cards for launch, but unfortunately they wouldn't have arrived in time. :(

    :rock: Woo, I'm right!

    I sort of figured it out after the review on BT about HDR, SLi was already integrated and there were talks of the shader model 3, which the ATI X800 series doesn't have.

    IIRC the 7800 only has 20 pipelines instead of 24, so nvidia made up for it by increasing the clock speed.

    the reference clock speed of the 7800 GT is actually 30MHz lower than the reference clock speed of the 7800 GTX . :)

    Both XFX and BFG, and a number of other manufacturers, are selling the cards with increased clock speeds. :thumb:
