Here's what Fudzilla had to say:

Quote:
We learned that the RV770 GPU already went to production and there is a big chance to see R700 generation much earlier than anyone has expected. TSMC is already in pilot production and the chips are, as we reported earlier, developed in 55nm machitecture.

The way it looks now, there is a strong possibility that R700 should show its face at Computex (June 3) while the launch itself might be shortly before or after Computex. We still don’t have the final details.

RV770 is the based on the R700 design and the R700 itself consists of two RV770 chips. From what we know, RV770 should be at least fifty percent faster than the RV670.

If all goes well there is a big chance that R700 will launch in Q2, but rather later than earlier. We are still in the dark about the real details of D10U 30 as this GPU(s) has a similar schedule and ought to launch in Q2.



Good news for a huge horde of gamers and ATI/AMD or malignant rumour set to disappoint as always?

WoW 8800gtx speeds, nearly two years on...

Im looking at 10+% faster than the Ultra

The same can be said about NV.

But nVidia has had a card at 8800GTX speeds for nearly two years. It's called the 8800GTX.
April 10, 2008 2:53:02 AM

And two years later the 9800GTX arrives...how did that do?
April 10, 2008 3:00:10 AM

Thats good news for ATI fans. I'm waiting to see how this new chipset will go against NVIDIA.
April 10, 2008 3:09:56 AM

lol ever heard of the GX2? boosting almost double the Ultra in some benchmarks?

and the 9800 GTX is better than the Ultra, and is 300 which means they did advance because its a huge performance for only 300:) 

Ati is traveling walking speed lol and Nvidia is running, I hope ATI catches up because I wanna switch back over!
April 10, 2008 3:18:11 AM

i didnt hear the 9800gtx being better than ultra... at least at higher resolutions.
April 10, 2008 3:26:33 AM

it managed to hold its own. At EXTREMELY HIGH res like over 2000 thats when it dipped down. at HD 1080p It was better:)

And thus in lies the problem! 16 ROPs, 256-bit bus and 512 MB ram castrated our new 'king' of the 9 series.

Go ATI, I really want you to succeed. For some reason the last 4 times I have purchased a new VGA, nVIDIA has had the best offering.

The problem is, the GTX is not really faster than the Ultra, and its using brand new drivers vs months old drivers http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3275&p=6 It trades blows, but thats it. Im thinking the 4870 will be a more clear cut winner, if not in almost all games
April 10, 2008 3:56:31 AM

Those are still Beta Drivers, lol Quad sli GX2 isn't fixed yet, and the 9800 GTX came out on April 1st LOL sooo they aren't new drivers

Have you read any of the posts? Even some making conspiracy about those "beta" drivers, which arent used on the 8xxx series by the way
April 10, 2008 4:04:59 AM

I hope it's fast enough to take the top spot. That way Nvidia will stop puking out repackaged 8800s.

April 10, 2008 10:01:29 AM

How much of a difference do you guys think the 55nm fab process for the RV770 make over the 65nm for the 9800GTsuX .... the RV670 was 55nm too ....and it was quite a giant leap from the prev gen ATI cards.

I know the 55nm fab manuf will make it cheaper than the 98xx.... but for how much power output? The 3870 was slightly behind the 8800GT.

lol gx2? lol ever heard of a very short lived product lol , 9800gtx lol no drivers for 8800gtx since december lol ultra all round quicker than 9800gtx lol nvidia hasn't beaten the 8800gtx with a single gpu yet lol neither cmpany is really moving at the high end lol whatever that means for the average joe lol who wants a cheap but powerful card lol

btw lol=not clever

the rv670 is probably no more than 1% faster clock for clock than the r600. Power consumption and cost were the giant leaps, not performance. If anything is to be expected from rv770 it will be about 35% faster all round, have better dx10 performance in general, and have some very low idle power consumption numbers. Like 20 watts for the high end single gpu models. It'll come at a nice price, and come in at around the same performance as a 8800gts 512mb. If it comes out at least a couple of months earlier than nvidias true next gen, then it could be a real cash cow for ati.

Theres been alot of rumours and leaked specs regarding rv770, and it would appear its not an awfully far away from an early test on some chinse language website. We've heard next to nothing about nvidias true next gen, which might mean that its not in as advanced a stage of development, but then again my gut feeling #as a mild ati fanboy not an nvidia fanboy# says that doesnt mean anything and theyre just keeping a big leap forward in technology strictly under wraps ready for a summer/late summer launch.

Im not a Ati fanboy, but i really hope they put up with a nice card. Really.

This is just too good to be true. If so, i probably found a replacement for my X850XT.

April 10, 2008 12:12:50 PM

I love the comments about it beating the 8800GTX....
Right, a 3870X2 is pretty much around 8800GTX/Ultra performance (except they still rule at higher res and/or with high AA, but lets ignore that for a moment) if
Quote:

that is true, then the 4870X2 is going to be a long, long way past 8800GTX/Ultra performance. Should be comparable, if not better, than 9800GX2 as that doesn't offer 50% performance over 8800GTX/Ultra on average (in some benchmarks yes, but as an average it isn't 50% quicker than the G80).
I think the 98xx series of cards will be just about the shortest lived from Nvidia as they are obviously going to have to do something better than the mild improvements that the 9series name change gave...
It's going to be an interesting few months thats for sure! :D

Dude ur pretty retarded. "lol" is a force a habit not a speech from me. You look like your here to fight more than to make a worthy argument. Pretty funny seeing as you were dumb enough to buy the 2900 Pro, since the 2000 series did fail...technically speaking. While the 9800 GTX doesn't offer the power it should the 9800 gX2 is the strongest card to date. I don't care what you say about the price, that's not what I'm pointing out.

In conclusion, if your retarded thats your problem don't bring it into the forums. I don't get what the point of commenting on some1's speech would have to do with the argument.

So please stick to the subject.

P.S

I don't see nvidia releasing anything new anytime soon, since there is no competition coming from ATI.

Point taken, was more interested in arguing.

The pro was bought cheap second hand. Bought it to oc.

"2000 series did fail...technically speaking" u mean commercially speaking,

"So please stick to the subject." likewise.

April 10, 2008 2:28:06 PM

I mean statistically speaking. K I'll stick to subject.
