  1. ill go wid nvidia 9800..
  2. 3DFX



  3. When do these cards come out?
  4. I'm very curious to see what ATI comes up with in the next few months. That being said, I'm leaning heavily toward the 98 hundo.
  5. If its anything like G92 vs RV670, then 9800 will be high end, and R700 being a little lower in price, and having near equal performance.

    I will put my money on 9800, after 7800 and 8800 destroyed what ATi had at those times. But ATi may come back with something like the X1950
  6. Who knows, maybe ATI can pull another 9-series thing out of their hat and nVidia will launch another FX series, maybe the opposite will happen, you can't really tell yet.
  7. I don't know, but with Intel joining the race, I can't wait to see the price wars :D

  8. I heard intel is going to leave the "enthusiast" market to ATI/nVidia
  9. oops!! looks like I screwed up the poll when I made it.
    Actually Intel is trying to comeback on the enthusiast level but, they'll never get there in time.
  10. i really wanna go with ati on this one. something tells me that they have something up their sleeves. my logic tells me to go with nvidia. who knows though...maybe r700 will spank nvidia.
  11. Too early to tell, but my bet would be on nvidia, they simply have more resources and time for the better flagship. That said, R700 should be very strong, most likely 2-3x faster than RV670.

    Intel also will be powerful player, but not this year, probably will compete with R800 and whatever nVidia gen at that time.
  12. When do these come out??? I'm hoping something good for January.

    No new gen in January, or Q1 2008, only R680 and D8E. R700 should come out next summer at best, no info at all about nvidia.
  14. I think NVIDIA will win the next round again. But certainly it is anybody's game at this point... What's most interesting to me, is that NV just went to 65nm tech, while ATI skipped ahead to 55nm.. Could that be a great advantage for ATI? Certainly it didn't help the 3870 beat the 8800GT, but if done right next time.....

    Or will NV's next products also be 55nm or smaller? Perhaps even 45nm? Huff huff huff huff!!!!

    OH LORD! I am getting technically aroused again!! Think books..... magazines..... old cars..... regular season baseball games..... reading...... boring........ Ahhh..... that was a close call. =0
  15. Wheres Matrox in the poll?
  16. whats going to be new in the 9800 series? 5xxx had dx9, 6xxx had good dx9, 7xxx had hdr, 8xxx had dx10, whats 9xxx going 2 have?
  17. Sis ftw.
  18. With the way AMD/ATI is going R700 might turn into another mid-range card that performs right below the 3850 and the 9800 would become a 8600GTX!

    hmmmfff, where have I heard that before? ...up their sleeves, what they need to do is pull their heads out of their ass... :pfff:
  20. Are these both going to have cell processing on it. A while back that is what I heard for the R700. Like, they will have multiple versions. The low end will only have a few cores on it and the top end will have up to 16 i think.... I am not sure if this is true or not, but its what I remember hearing a few months back.
  21. Cell processing, by my understanding, was a flop.
  22. For what it's worth. Digitimes says Feb for the Nvidia 9 series high end and June midrange.

  23. I think the Intel one was put there as a joke... but at some point the sleeping giant might finally wake up and crank out a REAL video card of its own (I refuse to count the i740 as a REAL video card) Beware of Larrabee!
  24. I vote to get what your system is made for,

    for x38,p35--ati is the way to go for crossfire
    680, 780,--nvidia b/c of sli.

    I always begin with a mobo that I like, buy the best card out, then upgrade to two of those cards when the price drops later on.

    I guess the PS3 proved it. It's a great idea but does not work so well in reality. I was just woundering if that was still what was planned.
  26. I do bet that Intel is aiming squarely at the high-end.
    Intel aint gonna beg nVidia to officially allow SLi on Intel chipsets, so they will be at least faster/better than nVidia just to piss em off and Intel doesnt need nVidia for anything at all.
    Next thing is that they DEFINITELY WILL NOT want to be slower than AMD, for obvious reasons.
    So Intel will either be "good" or better than both. Prolly not right ahead with their first GPU, but 2-3 years should be enough experience for them.

    IMO Intel's priority will be mainstream - they already conquered low-end, now need middle, and by having both they'll have most of the money flow in the gpu market. High-end will definately will be a goal too, not because its really needed (<5% of the market is WAY less important than the rest 95%), but because they can. I agree first Larabee refresh wont be the killer for nvidia/AMD, but after several generations it might be.
  28. Read up on the Larabee - mainstream. Too bad, the two giants could loose some weight from sweating a bit.
    I'd vote for nV. Genericaly, nV have started the nex-gen and ATi finishes it with an "oh yeah? Well suck on this bohemith energy sucking frame thrower". ATi seems to be playing with impressions, stealing the "nex-gen" ice breaker with the 3870 imo. Frankly, I don't think they have much up thier sleeves... ;)
  29. I vote AMD.I believe the R680(dual gpu) is a test bed for AMD before they go all out.Nvidia droping there 9 series speaks volumes to whats coming from AMD.R700 will have 1-4 45nm gpu per card.With the race getting this hot ,it might take 2-3yrs for Larabee but with alot of money.Intel should have bought ATI when they had the chance.They are about to pay for that mistake.

    From where I read, the R700 is supposed to be multichip or multicore.
