Anyone downloading the recently released ATI 5.10 Catalyst driver suite must have noticed the absence of any reference to the X1K range of boards. This came as a surprise to most since these cards are all ATI seems to talk about nowadays.

According to a story on Hexus.net, citing ATI insiders as the source, the Canadians will unleash the full force of their nVidia fighting machines in version 5.11 of the drivers expected in November. The same sources claim that ATI will use the release to publicly introduce enhanced OpenGL support. This means that ATI expects that it will be able to surpass its rivals performance in games such as Doom 3, a title that carries the flag for the graphics API.

The improvements mentioned suggest an up to 35 per cent increase in performance during Doom 3 gameplay using antialiasing at high resolutions. ATI has apparently improved the way its core communicates with the board's memory during AA processing.

With Quake IV coming soon and expected to be very popular, ATI can ill-afford any delays in pledging its whole-hearted support for OpenGL and demonstrating how it can rival and even outperform nVidia, a company that has traditionally held the OGL crown.

Still Nvidia has the availability.
I haven't seen much shops here in Holland which sell the X1800XL or X1800XT

I think nVIDIA with SLI 2x 7800 GTX will still pwn the single X1800 XT. It still has only 16 pipelines which is kind of a real letdown...the clocks are nice and Shader 3.0 is cool and all, but still 16 pipes? Come on..

If 16 pipes can be as good 24 pipes it doesn't matter does it?
And what about the new 5.11 drivers from ATI

The new drivers also offer a Doom 3 performance improvement of up to 38 per cent, Quake 4 performance improvement of up to 60 per cent and in older OpenGL titles such as Quake 3, Arena, and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, performance improvements of up to 50 per cent.

I was VERY exited about this upcoming graphics card as I currently have the X800 XT but they do not support my type of motherboard. Radeon says "There is not enough demand for AGP motherboards" or something like that. It requires PCI-E slots so I may sell my soul to satan and buy an nvidia - the new one looks rather good.
