The advantage the 6800GT has over the X800 Pro is mainly due to the four extra pixel pipelines available with the NV40 based card, and we can see now that ATI should have made the X800 Pro a $299 card that would go against the GeForce 6800 Standard and made the Radeon X800 XT go against the GeForce 6800GT. Of course, everything comes down to yields and from what we've heard, ATI has had problems yielding fully function 16 pixel pipeline cards in large quantities over the last few months.
Not only does the GeForce 6800GT perform great in every game tested, the game also packs one of the best gaming bundles around. Packaging four full version games including Doom 3, XFX did a great job of making the card appeal to the gamers that will be buying it. Overclockability is also an important feature with the enthusiasts that would be willing to spend $400 on a graphics card, and the GeForce 6800GT doesn't lack in this sector, running a core speed of 66MHz and memory speed of 114MHz faster than stock.
