New RV670 cards perform well in 3DMarks, especially Power Color Extreme HD, and you see that it definitely beats the reference design card. In 3DMark06, the overclocked card is faster than reference card by seven percent, and slower from HD2900 XT by four percent. Gaming will also prove that Power Color Extreme PCS is far better than reference card.

In Futuremark, Geforce 8800 GT beats ATI cards by a small margin, but it runs better when gaming, especially with antialiasing on.
