Shame they didn't include anisotripically filtered results (the 8500 would quite possibly win out). Good stuff from Anandtech as usual. I particularly like the CPU scaling graphs. We're really beginning to see the benefits of T&L now, I'm sure.
I've seen forums where they've argued the ATi vs nVidia thing to death! It's insane, since the 8500 was designed to compete with the GF3 not the GF4, and surely all this competetion is only going to benefit the consumers in the long-run. Amazing how worked up people get just because their favoured-brand is suddenly on the back foot. Stupid.
