Hello all,

Found the award 2004 from Tom's Hardware where the best innovation
in Graphic cards is NVidia 6800 and best GC brand is ASUS:

http://www4.tomshardware.com/business/20050201/readers_...

Hence my best bet for my new high performance card can not be
anything else than (taratatannnn):

ASUS NVidia 6800 Ultra PCI-E ...

Objections?

Best Regards,
Giovanni

Hello Giovanni,

If money is no object you want the best maybe wait a month. Do an
Internet search for ATI Raptor R520.

Raptor? Isn't that name already taken by Western Digital? ATI could have
been a little more original. But this is par for ATI lately.

It's worse than that -- there's already a Raptor series of video cards (for
Sun workstations, but it still creates confusion):

http://www.techsource.com/products/Sun_PCI/sun_pci.html

Seems to me like Tech Source will have a reason to sue ATI over this.

They've announced the design, but haven't gone to mask with it.

Hi Scooter,

You mean I am looking for PCI-E yep true :) 

The newegg reviews include also the PCI-E with top scoring
for EVGA and surprisingly not so for ASUS ...

Giovanni

Well, I dont throw money but I like to get best value ... so I have
been waiting and tracking prices like a hawk for two months already
and no one cent drop for that card (which also somehow corroborates
it is the best) ... the opposite yes the ASUS 6800 Ultra runs out of stock
all
the time ...

Regards,
Giovanni

Professional card, or gaming, or both?

Fully reprogrammable
OpenGL 2.0
OpenGL 1.5+Shading languages
DX9.0 HLSL VS 2.0 PS 3.0
640MB GDDR3 total memory (512 unified w/512-bit BUS, 128 DirectBurst
w/128-bit BUS)

It's a wet dream ;)

i am going to give you my opinion on best card and prices if that is
what is holding you back. i recently purchased the 6800gt LEADTEK
"all you leadtek haters can flame me all you want" and i love it!
mine is overclocked to 415core 1.06 memory 51c idle gameplay my card
hits up to 65c and let me tell you this puppy screams with my p4 3.4e
now if money is the problem get the GT model cause it can be
overclocked very well and VERY stable. NOW... if you got money to
throw around like a rich bastard i would get
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti...
the X850 Sapphire flame that all you want this card pawns!! anyway i
am only trying to help and give out more ideas and options i hope
this can help on your pick to a brand new video card GL

pS there are alot of other cards that are great aswell look around
:idea:

For me not, we have some of them at work. The 3D performance is poor, even
worse than a FireGL X1-256p (which is a Radeon 9700 Pro). We also have
several FX4400. I'd always choose the Quadro over any product from 3DLabs...

I know, for dual apps (Prof & Gaming), Quadros rule...
I also think a few prof apps have glitches with the ATIs and 3DLabs has
never listened to gamers when it comes to driver development (Then again,
how come 3DLabs has only one PCI-E card?)

Same chipset as the Asus, but with LeadTek's impeccable analog image
quality, for those times when you are shooting away at 2048x1536, and 512
MB.

Or better yet, get two of them in SLi. 1 GB of video RAM, no waiting...

Nice. But still no Dual-Link DVI...

Well, not really. You still only have 512MB since everything is kept double
in SLI configs...

True, though DL DVI is not useful unless you have a crazy large flat panel
like th 31" Apple Cinema, and of course not applicable at all if you plan on
using a large CRT. Note my reference to analog image quality.

However, it appears the Quadro 4400 has its memory clocked at 550 MHz, same
as the 256 MB 6800U, while the 512 MB 6800U runs at 525 MHz. For the
purposes of this academic discussion, this makes the 4400 slightly faster in
3D on paper.

Also true since the 3dfx days. The redundancy is the price for scalable
memory bandwidth.
