A little vague to say the least Sky? Its great that its able to pump out 15fps in Crysis at 2560x1200, although thats still unplayable framerates either way you look at it and most of us don't have monitors that display above 1920x1200.

Not bad compared to the 9800GX2, but I'm not paying more than $500 for a card.
at least not without a HWC review.

Well some people on other forums are saying their current cards are beating the scores. Like some say their Ultra beats it. Anyways looking forward to ATI's new cards more then nVidia's this time around.

Wow Nvidia is going to need much more than this to compete with the 4800 series. The Radeon x2 numbers are obviously from old drivers, the WIC performance, for example, has been doubled with the newest drivers.

4870x2 FTW.

I don't know about DOUBLED but I have seen a good 30-50% increase in X2 frame rates in WiC.
