Benchmarks show it is faster than two Geforce 6800GT in SLI. Nvidia
are not making it a major part of the show but they are going to
mention the RSX for the Playstation 3, which is expected to have at
least twice the performance of the 7800GTX.
Meanwhile, where is ATI? Oh, that's right. They are having massive
problems with R520 development which is actually a newer variation of
the R500 for the xflop 1.5 full circle. Let's see, Nvidia can show GPU
technology that they say WILL be even further developed for the PS3,
but ATI isn't able to show a GPU that WAS derived from the xflop 1.5
full circle GPU. But ATI says it is better?
ATI's code-named R520 graphics chip is late. Analysts are saying that
if it's much later, then Nvidia will win a new round of high-end design
wins and ATI will miss the back-to-school cycle. It looks like it's
Rolaids time in Markham, Canada.
