Howdy!

I want to know the equality of those two Nvidia cards compared to two ATi Radeons of the 5000 (DX11) series!?

THanks

The 8800GT should be in between a 5670 and a 5750... A GTS250 should be between a 5750 and a 5770. That's DX9 and DX10; nVidia cards don't do DX11 yet.

That's how I remember it :p 

Cheers!

5750 is faster than a gts250 but they are quite close.

In fact, the 8800GT & GTS 250 are one-in-the-same, Nvidia just rebranded it a few times and made a few modifications to booat a little performance... below is the order in which Nvidia rebranded, each model gaining a little performance from the last...

8800GT
8800GTS
9800GT
9800GTX+
GTS 250

I may be missing a couple others in there, but the point is, they all use the G92 chip.

All of the above is equal to an ATI 4850 video card.


The 5770 is more along the lines near a 4870

How so?, An 8800GT has 112 SP's and a GTS250 has 128 SP's and can have a 55nm GPU whereas all the 8800GT's are 65nm GPU's without Hybrid power capability, so how are they the same?

All based on the G92 chip. Sure, the 8800GT is a slightly crippled version of the 8800GTS but the actual difference in benchmarks is quite small in comparison. Now, the 9800 series is a die-shrink version (later branded to the GTS 250), ultimately, the GTS 250 is an 8800GT on roids with a die shrink and more options.

Now, if you're talking 8800GT vs. GTS 250, then the difference is better than that of an 8800GTS to a 9800GTX...

GPU SP's Core Clock shader memory bus

9800 GTX G92 128 675 1688 1100 256-bit
8800 GTS 512 G92 128 650 1625 970 256-bit
8800 GT G92 112 600 1500 900 256-bit

So, not the same then.

I thought i was clear to the OP when i said that they all use the G92 chip (which would essentially make them the same) and that each version was modified (whether it was a die shrink or other features) to be a little better than its predecessor. Maybe i worded it wrong.

@OP
5670 ~ 4830 ~ 8800/9800GT
5750 is slightly better than a GTS250 or 4850

Technically, all GTX200 cards use the same chip. Same for all 48x0 cards and 58x0 cards.

Agree'd.
My current GTS 250 OC beats the old pants off my former 8800GT by a long shot.
Graphics are better, things run smoother, I can push the limits a bit more...
I never had the chance to grab the 8800 Ultra but I think that was supposed to be the 'top of the line' in the 8800 series and the one to beat.
