Like i said, paper spec yes they are very similar, but in actual usage it is hard to tell. And Asus might end up underclocking the x700, just like they've done with 6600, 9700 ATI, and other video card they've implemented. They've been known to do that over and over again.
Yes the Ferrari got nice benchmark and over 2800, the Acer 8100 series got 2300 with the exact same card. This is to show that taking the best of breed comparing against the lowest of breed is basically not a fair comparison.
If you compare the Acer 8100 vs Asus Z71v, they are around 2200ish - 2300ish vs 1800ish - 1900ish stocked. Not overclocking.
But if you compare the Acer 8100 vs Sager 3880, they are comparable in terms of speed on the x700 vs 6600 go.
That is the benchmark from stocked Sager 3880 using Nvidia 6600 GO.
Just as an example above..
It is hard to tell exactly how x700 will perform on the Z70va. No one knows the stock speed on it yet and how much will it clock out to be.
Bench mark will varies on type of memory used and the clock on the GPU and memory.
