No big surprise here as the ATI, as usual, kicks the crap out of the GeForce under 32bit. 32Bit rendering is obviously an area that ATI has focused much efforts on as they have typically beat out other cards all the time in this mode. This is great news for gamers because more games, especially ones built on the Quake 3 engine, will be using true color textures.
I do hope that in time ATI will go back and re-optimize their drivers so they can also get better 16bit speed as there are still quite a bit of gamers that, for some lame-brain reason, still want to run their games in 16bit. Also because only the more recent games are supporting textures higher than 16bit.
The other thing that I guess we'll have to wait and see is how the Maxx will compare to the DDR-based GeForce cards that are now starting to hit the market. I could only imagine how the Maxx would perform if it were using DDR as well.
