New Features in Modern Graphics Cards

The term "modern graphics card" always seems a misnomer to me, since most people I know are about a generation or so behind. So what's cutting edge always seems a little future forward. I don't have a lot of friends sporting a new water cooled SLI monster, but such a machine is certainly contempory ... just damn expensive.

So while my CheapBox 5000 might not have all these bells and whistles, Tom's Hardware does a rundown of the new features for the latest crop of hardware, including new shader effects, what the new pixelshaders are capable and just how envious you can make a 6600 owner at the next LAN party.
