Well, the new TransparacyAA is very impressive!

Preformance is also good in high reselutions with AA & AF, another thing that's inpresive is that even though this card has 50% more pipelines, and about 80 mil. more transistors than 6800 Ultra it uses less power...

And the best... It's availible in high-volumes today...
In Norway, several brands are availible from several online shops.

Finally no paper-launch! :)

No the best is that in a couple of years I can get one for the same $100 I got my 9000 Pro for a couple of years ago. ;)

you mean the ones that probably will never be available in large quantities because ATI will still be having problems with their manufacturing process?

hmm. if the specs is true, looks like the x900pro is going to be a x900xt with 8 pipes locked...

Woah. That's the total amount of pipes on my 6600GT. :eek:

And the 6600GT isn't even an old thing.

WTF. LOL. I give up following these crazy graphics tech.

as for the yield... ya, I am having my doubts too, 1) whether the 90nm process TSMC is reliable enouhg 2) if the revised x900 design has been improved 'that dramatically" from the original taped out x900. Hope its not a semi-vapourware like the x700 (took a long time for them to come out)

Oh ya, bet you anything, nvidia has something bigger under their sleeves. I think the 7800GTX is an "Ultra" with 8 pipes locked.

So. Who's up for a 7600GTX/7200 :p

To keep up nowadays is to be hella rich. I don't know very many people who would fork over near 1K for a video card just to end up spending another 1K 4-5 months down the road. It's ridiculous.

I don't know anybody who would do that. :p

Even a "mid-range" 6600GT is considered expensive by the lots of us. O.o

The whole problem with Next Gen Video cards is that it seems like that the current generation of Games don't really need them. Then again I come from the age where everything was done with the CPU and had a couple games that made the CPU cry when they came out..many of Origns titles did that in the early 90's...I.E. Strike/Wing Commander, Bioforge, etc etc...damn I miss those games ;)

coming from a 6600GT, there is definately room to upgrade to a higher performing solution.

True. I tried to run Battlefield 2 in full quality at 1024x768. I do get dizzy. It could be just me though. Getting dizzy from HL/HL2... lol... (but strangely not CS)

Other than the new AA stuff, im quite unimpressed with the 7800, not much of a performance boost over current gen cards, personally the only good thing I see about this new gen is that it will drive the prices of the older cards down.

Bring on Unreal 2007, then the new cards will interest me.

I stopped following this stuff about a year ago, now I'm totally bewildered as to all of these new cards. 32 pixel pipelines??

It seems like yesterday that I bought a Parhelia, which I'm still using, with 4.

:eek:

Do any of you actually upgrade with each new generation??

Mehen
3rd July 2005, 20:40
I usually skip a generation, so it seems I'm due for a new one this summer, but I dunno, this card seems to be holding up pretty good

schmosef
3rd July 2005, 20:52
I don't think I'll be upgrading again until late 2007 or maybe even 2008. I'm gonna get an xbox 360 and a ps3 (heck, probably even a Revolution) and that'll do me fine for a good long while.

I haven't found anything yet that won't run sweetly at high settings on my 6800GT. I just bought an Asus z71v laptop as well (with a 6600 in it) and it plays everything excellently. I can't imagine people being greedy enough to buy one 7800gtx let alone two and put it in SLI. That would be some insane power. Well, maybe if you're playing games on this.

I will get a new card (and probably by then a next PC) when XDA and DirectX Next becomes reality.

for now my 6600gt runs anything i throw at it!

It seems like yesterday that I was using G400 with...1, I think, pipeline.

Uhmm...w8, I'm using it today :p :D (":("?)

I can't imagine people being greedy enough to buy one 7800gtx let alone two and put it in SLI.I upgraded from a 6800GT, on an FX-53, to a 7800 GTX, and am glad I did. For me, the 6800GT, at ultra speeds, wasn't cutting it. In BF2, at 1600 X 1200, with 2X FSAA and everything on high, I was frequently dropping into the 15-20 FPS range on the 6800GT. With the 7800GTX, I'm usually in the 75-85 FPS range. Running most games at my LCD's native resolution of 1920 X 1200 was a struggle for my 6800. It did a commendable job, but with the 7800, no problems.

which screen?

which screen?

Dell 2405.

And just finished HL2 Ravenholm level again, in native resolution. My 6800 was having problems at 1600 X 1200 (before I had my Dell panel), and with the 7800, not even a stutter at 1920 X 1200, 2X FSAA, 8X AF. Never below 75 FPS, and usually in the 120-150 FPS range. Very nice.

AGP support or just PCI-XE you think?

Admiral
10th July 2005, 22:18
Seems only PCI-E, for both the 7800 and X900.
I'll also have to change the mobo when the time comes, though to be honest I would buy the PCI-E version even if there would be a AGP one, doesn't seem worth investing in a expensive AGP card nowdays.
