Another 8800 GT review: beats GTX at lower resolutions

Another 8800 GT review has popped up on the net, this time over at VR-Zone. As already seen, the GT is a bomb ready to go off (metaphorically speaking, of course). In general, the GT beats the GTX at lower resolutions (say 1920x1200) - while it remains a mere 230 points behind the GTX in 3Dmark 06. Over in 3Dmark 05 land is another story though, as the GT tops the not-so-almighty GTX by a good 900 points.
