    Well the ati radeon HD 2900 XT does more shader operations/second than an nvidia geforce 8800 ultra, but has lower pixel and texture fill rate so this means in some games, with lots of shaders games pretty much hd 2900 xt might be faster, games with loads of with high textures i guess fps better on ultra.

    Some numbers on paper are quite worthless when benchmarks say the opposite. I'd rather trust real world performance.
