An interesting little blurb from the Inquirer.

Not surprising since ATI has been leading the PCI-EX charge from the start. Still hoping for a PCI-EX card for early '04, and especially one with a PCI/AGP bridge that allows me to use it on my current system until the 939 socket comes out.

Also, an interesting blurb on why Powercolors are built a little different;

Of course, ATI has a strategic partnership with Intel on chipset technology, and PCI-EX is Intel's standard.

Both nv and ati are moving alot of their stuff to pci-ex next year... hopefully early next year. Wonder what kind of performance increases we'll see? Hopefully a damn sight better than agp4x->agp8x

Don't expect that. An immediate performance boost is not the point. The performance boost will come from the amazing 1337ness of the r420/421 itself, not its interface.

Oh, and hey guys, whats up. I havn't posted in a while (I have been reading though), I know, I'm having some trouble with my cox service (and no I'm not talking about Grape's mom, she's doing fine).

But I saw ur thread about the cereal box GW:)  Lol. Hey and GW stop ignoring my instant messages! I know j00 hear me!

Me: are you saying I can't provide?
Me: cause I know I can provide.
Me: oh and I can provide money too;)
Rachel:) : why do we need money when we can just stay in our room and have sex all day?

Watch yourself, Momma don't take kindly to little boys who can't get their COX up! :tongue:

BTW, it's the R420/423, maybe if you stopped fantasizin' about other people's moms and daughters you'd be able to think straight. :lol:

The PCI-EX advanatge will open up some interesting possibilities. It'll be interesting to see if ATI's implementation is truely superior to all the rest, and if we'll even notice, or if the developers will even bother to exploit that edge (which will likely be such a small minority in the gaming market as to not warrant much special attention).

However it does make me feel good about them being serious about the architecture. And if you read their Discussion at Rage3D you'd really get the feel for that. They said that DirectX 10 is not the next big thing, that PCI-EX was the next big thing, and that DirectX10/Longhorn was the next next big thing. Makes me feel ll warm and fuzy inside. I'm not looking for performance gains, I'm looking for configuration advanatges. It'll hopeflly keep me from 'giving away' so many of my cards when I'm done with them, instead just move them down the line.
