Let me revise:

These results may not be FAKE but they may have been produced using older hardware than what some review sites have in-hand right now.

I think this topic would be better suited in the rumor mill lol

Until such a time as this card is released in its retail version and tested on a Vista OS Intel dualcore system there is little fact to any of the speculation of what this card can or will be capable of in comparison with a retail non-OC'd 8800GTS or GTX
Why anyone would be testing a card on anything but a dualcore system or comparing it to any previous generation card is beyond me.

Last time I checked, those VGA charts were worthless. I won't go into examples, but it's far from reliable.

Regardless, if those results are in fact true...
