Ok well this is going to be a 2 part reply. Gerryjoson- If you are going to quote something from me quote the entire statement, don't edit words out of the middle to better suit your reply, it's unprofessional. The rest of your post make Little sense to me. I read the 128 bit part 3 times & I'm still trying to figure out what you are saying. The quote of me you put in your post @7:42 "The 8800M, which will be the performance card will be a 256 bit interface (just as the 7800 & 7900 series cards were)." What I stated in my post: "The 8800M, which will be the performance card will be at least
a 256 bit interface (just as the 7800 & 7900 series cards were)." Petterson72- This is from your own post ( which I was referring to)

In the desktop world a 7950go isn't a really fast card. Call of Juarez even brings my 8800GTX
to it's knees sometimes and I don't talk about 10fps here, but around 25fps in some areas. Yes the 8800mobile version will crush the 7950go for sure, look at it like this, it's a whole new architecture and like one earlier said the 8800 series on the desktop
crushes all 7000 series cards
You were talking about the desktop 8800GTX, which is what my reply was directed at. I never mentioned that my 7950 would be faster than an 8800 series card (Ii would not expect it to be). I have stated it is considerably faster than the current 8400m/8600m mobile solutions that are becoming available. <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD width="100%"><TABLE cellSpacing=10 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TR><TR><TD>From my earlier post. Please tell me where I said my 7950 was going to be better than a 8800?
I don't mean to be rude but I will not have you making statements that are unsubstantiated. And just as a little added clarification the standard desktop 8600 card is slower than my mobile 7950. http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2114756,00.asp Even the OC'ed GTS Desktop version barely scrapes past my moble card by less than 200 points. That being said the mobile 8600 scores around 3,668 in 3DMark06. tHe 8600M GS pulled in a 2,100. That does not even take into account the real world performance of the cards which was even worse http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/notebooks/0,39050495,62010298-3,00.htm

We expect (hope) the 8800M to perform quite a bit better than the 7950, no one is arguing that. the fact remains it is not here yet, nor are we expecting it within the next few weeks. So at this point it's potential performance is moot. The most powerful mobile solution available is the 7950GTX. The current cards slated for release: 8400/8600GS/GT cannot match the performance of the previous generation cards, so we are discussing how that might affect the performance of the 8800 series cards.
Edit: kudos to whoever tried to give me neg rep on this tread & didn't leave their name
