if the 5900value has 128bit memory , then why dont they just call it an 5800?

they changed the specs of the 5600ultra after it was released and sold for a while, so i dotn see why they wouldnt do it again....
'
haha... man Nvidia. again i probably sound like a fanboy... but the selling feature of the 5900ultra was the 256bit memory


now the card that people will actually have access to, the value version, will have not only lower clock speeds but have the memory bus bandwidth potential

*claps* nice one guys

There was a 5800? I never saw one...
Look, the NV35 is MUCH more than just a 256-bit memory bus and better drivers. It's also...it's...umm...well...give me some time...it's...erm...hmph! I'll get back to you on that one...

it does have some improvements. namely the copying of ATI's "TBuffer"

but, will this be effective on a 128bit memory bus? is it bandwidth dependant?


and yes, there was a 5800. it was clocked at 400/400x2 as opposed to the 5800ultra's 500/500x2

I think Twitch meant, he's 'Never SEEN one' as in it being only a figment of people's imagination (due to the limited NV30 release)

As for the X-bit labs article it seems in conrast to the digi-times article about the MSI products, which have the 5900V listed as 256bit. But seeing as how that was just a quick-look graphic/chart, it wouldn't surprise me if that's not accurate.

"MX they name is V-alue"

haha i like that. so true




and yes i wouldt be suprised if this wasnt true. how many charts have we seen showing wrong clock speeds, rendering pipelines, and nm size.

i wonder where the hell these people get their information. SOMEONE isnt gettin it frmo Nvidia because the 2 sites have different info, so someoen is lieing.

then again ,Nvidia wont disclose details about their architecture so ... ATI isnt much better.

Hi all. Im sorry if Im being repetative but are you all saying the the 5900 Ultra will not be a 256 bit design? Take care.
