Nvidia's G80 has problems!!!

Quote:
G80 cards to editors' day attendees but no real drivers. Why on earth would Nvidia need to do that?
What is broken? Well, it seems G80 has a lot broken, some that will be fixed before launch, and some may be harder to fix.

Drivers on the 25th October will fix SLI, as we understand it is pretty badly borked in the current release. How badly? Enough to crash almost every time, said one source, and so basically unusable.

  1. So NVIDIA are pushing out drivers that are unstable, with a control panel that is unusable...

    And people still complain about ATI drivers... grrr!!

  3. Every company has problem with drivers... that is why they update them... (and to support new hardware)
  4. Thats the Inq...

    Sorry to burst your fan-boy bubble, but Nvidia isn't pushing out drivers that are unstable. G80 hasn't been released yet man, give it time to be finished.

    That's like arguing the quality of a car before it is finished against the quality of another totally finished and running automobile. Doesn't make sense.

    Wow! Imagine that--a prototype with problems! I'll bet NVIDIA even releases beta software with bugs in it too! That NVIDIA, they can't make anything right... :roll: :roll: :roll:
  8. Ya, I remember a story how they claimed madonna had a sex change ya as if.
  9. Stop Press: Unfinished hardware and software not yet fully working.
  10. It seems The Inquirer has problems. Always had problems, lies, and stupid fanboism. It must be true then :roll:
  11. They'd be saying the exact same thing about R600 if AMD had bought/merged nV instead of ATi.

    The Inquirer's brand of journalism is total utter bull.
  12. Wow, that's good to know, because I almost bought a 8800GT today. Now I'm really glad I didn't. :roll:
  13. the inquirer = bs, sure it does, but its bloody funny sometimes

    LOL. I wish I had'nt.


    Even IF this was true, cant really hold that aginst Nvidia, since the actual hardware isnt in anybody's PCIeX16 slot yet.
  15. I didnt really intend to reply to this thread (pointless), but I realized tool has almost my exact system :) The only difference is that I have an EVGA 7600GT OC :)

    I wonder, whats the highest fsb stable FSB you've ever gotten the d805 to work on it? Mine is currently at 3.4Ghz (170FSB) so I can keep my case fans on low, but the max I'ver ever had it stable (with Vcore at 1.5+) was 3.7Ghz (185FSB I think). Using a Golden Orb 2 for cooling, temps <68 when both cores loaded at 100%, so can't be the heat...
  16. This wreaks strongly of BS.

    ...and will no doubt be being cited as one of the Inq's 'loads of sources' in a forthcoming article.

    Well said. I love reading a post like that and thinking to myself "omg this is BS!" then scrolling down and seeing a bunch of people already said exactly what I was thinking!

    I doubt that. Even Wusys shit is way above the magic "I"s standard. Nah, to work for them you need to prove that you´re a descendent of a long lineage of seers, that you know which birds flight is the right one to predict the future of intel and wich fish is to gut to see the destiny of amd...

    Let's just hope AMD doesn't do anything too drastic with your beloved ATI. :wink:
  21. So works in Inquirer that is/are regular here? Anyways Inquirer have been publishing crappy stories or totally bullshit just to get more attention. I guess that thier strategy to keep thier sites running.
  22. I think it would be fun but it would just make it worst on the other hand. Flame wars among websites would be just as bad and fanboi war.
  23. Yeah good job everyone knows about the Inq BS, some people might have wasted money on crap after reading this particular article :- http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=34518

    but as we all know the Inq is BS so this story can't be true either :lol:

    I was being sarcastic.OMG WHAT IS THIS SARCASM YOU SPEAK OF? I'VE NEVER HEARD OF IT, PERHAPS YOU COULD CLARIFY YOUR STATEMENT.
  25. Well, I was ust wondering......normally sites like this are able to do a benchmark on prototypes a month or more before release.
    Maybe there could be something really wrong with the G80 that would explain the long wait for benchmarks. It's scheduled for release next month....well....we'll know soon enough ;)

    Dude, I live in Red Wing, Minnesota and have the same system as you.... sweet.

    Highest stable I have gotten is 200FSB. I can hit 4.2ghz in a cool room but it crashes after 20-30 minutes of Prime usually, but is rock solid at 200x20. I keep it lower for daily use, the improvements in gaming from 3.7ish to 4.0 weren't much, GPU is the limiting factor. If I am compiling a ton of code or something I bump it to 4.0.

    I have an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro for now, putting a liquid kit together next week sometime.
