Well the battles have started, the InQ has this article about RIDICULOUS OC'ing of the X800XTPE.

How about a Core speed equivalent to the model Number!! :eek: 

Also multiply that number by 10 and add a little bit and you have the new top Bungholio marks for 3Dmk05! :cool:

<A HREF="http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=18801" target="_new">http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=18801&lt;/A>

Anywhoo, expect a reply from nV. Now it'll be interesting to see if Overclocking an SLI setup is as easy as a single solution, and what limitations it may bring with 2 sets of cores/memory.

just read that. awesome ! but now we gotta wait for someone to overclock the 6800s in SLI and non-SLI to see how high they go.

benchmarketing! :D 

f'ing insane anyways, those systems must be nearly priceless in Europe :p  But it's nice to see how far they go

(the standard price for a 6800GT in the EU is (550USD/590USD - web/street)

Well don't hold your breath on the non-SLI solution, only the SLI has a chance IMO.

These are the same guys who hold <A HREF="http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=3111760" target="_new">the record for 3Dmk03</A> as well, and not a GF6800 in sight despite all the time in the world to OC '03.

Well 1 thing is for sure, ATI has a better processor core maybe. Like if they adopt INTELs strategy of more clock speed, they can outperform Nvidia. Beating 2 cards in parallel is not a joke. Now make ATI might be on the right road - let nvidia make SLI and we ll beat it with 1 card.

Perhaps if they were able to run the entire test would it be more valid, the game tests dont make the entire score up.

Actually Xeon, 3dMark scores are always only based on the game tests. The other tests are just for... well, testing purposes.

For me, the most interesting thing we have seen out of all of this is that we FINALLY get an idea of what SLI can do... about a 25% performance gain (guesstimate based on the stock 6800 scores I've seen).

This is so unrealistic its ludicrous, the guy used a Cascade Compressor system, which needless to say no one has, so any benchmarking done with that setup is bullshit because no one can duplicate it without spending a retarded amount of money for the cooling setup which no one is going to do, so NEXT...

Personally, I think the SLI vs. Insane overclock is funny.

Why is it funny? While the multi-stage compressor is expensive and takes a lot of work, it is MORE available than SLI right now. We do not have any PCIe boards with 2x PCIe 16x (less Tumwater) and no SLI bridge chip. I think ATi's response to nVidia's SLI is great! At least people can, if they so wished, setup an insane cooling solution. That is more than can be said about SLI as of today. Tomorrow may be another story, but we are talking today ;) 

So the only ludicrous thing I see is nVidia putting out a 3DMark05 score that no one can duplicate--that is what I call "bullshit". Can ATi release benchmarks for R520 or R500 because they will be out "soon" also? At least the overclocking solution is possible. And the insane cost is not an issue wither, because a PCIe motherboard plus 2 6800Ultras (and possibly CPU/RAM) is very expensive also. You are looking at what, $500-$600 for the Ultra PCIe?? You cannot even get the bridge chip, even if you had a Xeon with proper dual PCIe motherboard.

So I see ATi's response a very well placed tounge in cheek response :) 

And the ~44% jump in 3DMark05 is sort of disappointing (less dissapointing though than the 25% I quotes...). I remember the Voodoo2 only really helped in fillrate restricted games (but would literally double in these cases), I am curious what the new SLI bottlenecks are.

Anyhow, I am not holding out for SLI in this generation. I would rather upgrade to a new board with WFG 1.0/2.0 features (DX10, whatever it is) than increase my DX9 speeds. Just my opinion and personal taste :)  Doesn't really matter because most people have purchased AGP boards and it will be a bit of time before PCIe is in full swing.

Ps- I currently am running a 6800GT.

Pss- Corrected the 25% quote, changed to 44%.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Acert93 on 10/02/04 01:53 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

Agreed!! That's just a crazy, crazy OC. Pitting 2 cards against one makes them look pretty sad anyway. It's like watching 2 bullies trying to take some guy's lunch money and they get the crap kicked out of them by him in return. That was the best responce ATI could've given.

You premise is flawed, your arguments are tired, and your conclusion is pedestrian.

First NO ONE has SLI either, yet people chirp about it night an day, I'm posting this once, because it realtes to what many people here were talking about when the SLI figures were released earlier in the week. Surprisingly din't hear a peep out of you then about how practical it was.

Second there are MANY similar setups out there for THIS type of activity, benchmarking. This is not gaming this is raw monster electron pushing. These rigs don't look like the type of thing you setup and leave running Shareaza while you go off to work, they're dedicated machines. It's simply there for the "let's see what we can do with this or fry it trying" aspect of it all. And as it definitely involves graphics cards it's worthy of discussion.

Third, What kind of retarded money is involved in 2 GF6800Us on a Server MOBO with 2 expensive PROCs?

However that one card consistently is at the top of the heap shows it's strength in that one area, and the fact that the OCs are so insane show the potential for much headroom overclocking. No one expects to get these results with regular water cooling, but it does indicate that a good H2O system with a peltier may give you more headroom than people expected somewhere reasonably south of 800mhz, but well bove stock speeds.

Now as to your saying it's unrealistic, it reminds me of the character from princess bridge who keep saying 'inconceivable' without really understanding what it means.

That you don't understand what the rest fo us are talking about doesn't make it unrealistic, bullshit or retarded, it simply means that you should move on to something else and leave the mature discussion to the rest of us. So STFU!

No Soup For You!

Suivant, Next!

That's actually called 15th place in the hall of fame.

Did you think only ATI users know how to Overclock? Obviously you forget the <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/modules.php?nam..." target="_new">thread about 100k in Aquamark</A>, or perhaps you weren't here then.

That you accuse people here of being FanATIcs, especially in your limited scope/experience of this forum, and the world at large it seem, really says alot more about your insecurities.

Just curious, did an overclocked alcohol+CO cooled graphics card kill your father or something? At least that would explain your anger and confusion in a way that would be understandable to the rest of us here.

I don't care if you own 3 bananas running in parallel. You are bashing people using the term fanATIc. So, either you're an nVidiot who realized the FXs sucked and you had no other alternative but have no money for new cards or your an XGI fan but had to return your DUO cause it sucked, but miss that dual VPU feeling; OR (more likely) your just a simpleton who's prone to unexpected rash emotional outbursts.

Either way you look like a fvckin' idiot.

Yeah imagine. Just like we were saying 2 Volaris in the ALX, 4 cores, tons of fill rate, and...... still 12 fps in FartCry at 1280x1024. :evil: 

I was serious, I'm VERY interested in seeing how these arrays overclock, because that's alot of stability to rely on, if OC'ing JUST sticks of DDR needs tightly matched pairs, what the heck it something like SLI, not to mention ALX going to do to 'stability'. I'd also be interested to see whether you could OC and bench the crap out of it, but meanwhile you were getting visual issues because of minute differences that under a normal card would only be barely perceptable because there was no other reference, now half the image is reference.

If they can OC the crap out of something running SLI that would be pretty impressive.

Just curious, ALX x4 array, didn't know they were doing/planning that. Technically it's feasable 4 8x slots or 2 8x 2 4x currently, but That wold be a heck of alot of data crashing along there, and all having to be synched. Oie! Now that would be impressive.

Maximum PC had an ALX in their recent top-end shootout but it was a single card OC'd situation. Still nothing worthwhile coming out yet though.

5000 ---> 7200 is not a 25% increase.....its a 44% increase. Go to school :p 

Imo Sli is limited in 3dmark because the benchmark is running in 1024*768 (wich i dont understand why .... they should run it at 1280 its the new basic res...) and the sli will show their muscles at higher res. Also i dont think the 2 card setup had an overclocked fx-53 at 2.9ghz as a processor. Also the 2 card were not overclocked. My 2.5cent.

Well I am currently still in 'school' and try to learn, geez you'd think stats would be my strong points, considering my field of study wouldn't you? Hey, wait, it is one of my strong points, and so is research (which you seem a little weak on), guess I should check into that? Ooops, nope not my problem, seems like yours.
Not to harp on this TOO much, but perhaps a course in reading comprehension would be in order for your fall schedule as it WASN'T ME who said there was a 25% boost! D'oh! Reminds me of another person who thought they could give out stats lessons.

Quote:

But whether it's limited at 2 x 1024x384 or 2 x 1280x512, doesn't matter, even the overclocked X800XT isn't mashing the 60FPS barrier in the games (the link is no longer valid, but IIRC the best was 40fps in one of the benchies), so it's still not up to the task. Now IF they were running 200FPS at 1024x768 then I'd agree it might be an issue, but if it can't make playable frames, then pushing it to a higher rez isn't likely to help that.

I do agree that fewer people run 1024x768, and the new default is 1280x1024 with all the 19"+ CRT and 17"+ LCD monitors out there. But for this purpose it's just a standard. Heck, the R9600P OC'd to the tits can't break double digits at 1024x768 so I'd say anything higher would almost invalidate all the cards lower than the R9800PRO, and thus skew distribution (Oooh Stats! :evil:  ) too far towards the new cards, which even now are struggling mightily even at insane OCs.

Quote:

Likely has much less impact on this test. While maybe not as ignorant as 3Dmk03, it's likely still heavily VPU/GPU-centric.

We know that. But how do you know that they CAN be overclocked significantly? That's the point we were just discussing a few posts back.

If they have a 4 card array then really it would be a freaking perfect solution to driver IBM and Viewsonic's QUXGA monitors that I know Vapor is familiar with. :cool:

BTW, <b>Vapor</b>, it would be a nice option to have, but in this case since coytler IS basically replying to someone else's claim in the body of the post he could've at least picked the person who stated that to which he is responding.

Instead of "reply to thread" I'd prefer a "reply to no one in particular" or "reply to every stinkin' Ba$turd who bothers to read this" :wink:

Sweet!

Or simply multi-monitor setups, heck even as upgadable batch processors. I would be perfect for those QUXGA monitors though, finally enough power to really run them at high FPS (although I think their refresh is limited though, can't remember right now).

However for multi-monitor, OIE that would be hard to keep track of for one project, but perfect for video walls or displaying a ton of info (like financial) all without having to click around).

Anywhoo, in that case it definitely has more 'potential' than SLI, but really we have to SEE it in action to be able to start believing the PR.

price/performance irrelevant now? But yes, of course they would smack the living sh*t out of that Ati card.

The SLI setup on nv40 will not be relevant, since it is hardly implemented and we will see newer and stronger cards before it is accesible, at least that is what i think..

I happen to disagree. though I have not checked France, I know Germany and England has similar prices. You see, in EU we have something called "The Internal Market" and everything that has to be imported through that boundery from outside-countries takes a massive pricehit from toll, since you (I think) is on the list of the 10 new countries to become members of EU, you'll get to know (and feel)all about it ;)

heya TheGreatGrapeApe;

If you ever disrespect me or anyone else like this ever again, i will make it my personal mission in life to get you banned from this forum, that type of blatent disrespect is unecessary and quite frankly lewd and flat out intollerable, i dont know who you think you are but you wont be doing it again if i have anything to say about it. You better hear what im saying cuz im not playing around with you. If you think im full of it just do it again, and see what happens.
You owe me an apology, and from what i hear you owe alot of other people an opology as well.
Oh and btw you should really temper that problem of yours because you messed with the wrong guy this time, unlike the majority of the people on the forums, i actually know people at THG, and can garuntee your butt in a sling, that was pretty stupid, i recommend you start apologizing promtly.

"Alienware’s Video Array is not limited to 2 video cards. Future implementations may take advantage of this and put 4 or more video cards into one system. This would probably be more geared towards professional applications like rendering farms."

Id love to see the electric bill on a home pc sporting 4 6800 Ultras, minimum req psu 2000 watts.

Xeenrecoil, from what I can see, you're the one who started calling people names, you called Mopeygoth a fanATIc for no real reson as far as I can tell.

His posts seemed pretty saavy to the fact that it's all marketing BS and I don't think he was being blindly brand fanatical at all.

Maybe you should pay attention to your own advice, fella. A little more respectfulness goes a long way.

Cleeve;

calling someone a fanATIc isnt name calling.
Mind your own buisness.

Thanks

LOL. Or what? You goona have me kicked off of the board for making an observational and unoffensive comment?

Go for it. I triple dog dare you.

Throwing your weight around threatening people because you claim to know the moderators does not automatically create respect, I'm afraid. Quite the opposite.

Yeah you do that buddy! You go and ask for a ban for basically calling you out. You call people fanATIcs, and you think any mod is going to take you seriously! Sure, right!

You show respect, and you'll get respect, but you have to earn it bud, and you're far from that place.

Quote:

So is your post. You can dish it out, but you can't take it. What a hypocrite.

And thankfully that kind of power isn't in the hands of someone as rash and ignorant and arrogant as you.

You better hear what I'm saying back, 'WHO CARES!?!'

Quote:

Well if that's an open invitation I may just take you up on that. What you've written so far doesn't lead me to believe there's anything to fear from you, because any credibility of you being an 'innocent victim' died with your name calling.

Quote:

Oh 'other people' needed to have you fight their battles is that it, or did you contact them to have them help you fight your battles. I owe you nothing, respect isn't granted, like I said it's earned, and so is the spotlight of derision, which YOU swung around to focus on yourself.

Quote:

Once again, shaking, Oooohhh! Your veiled threats mean very little.

Quote:

Yippee, so once again showing it's not you but these aquaintances who would have to get your A$$ out of the fire cause you couldn't do it yourself. IF any of them spent even a minute reading your posts and mine, they'll say what everyone else here would. Figth your own battles and pick your fights wisely. I didn't pick you at random, that is other people's style, however I will ridicule you for just cause, which you have amply provided.

Quote:

That's not going to happen, not until you get down on your hands & knees and apologize to mopeygoth for your fanATIc remark too. Unless this is another area you're hypocritical about. You don't feel fanATIc is bad thus you don't see the need to apologize. Well, I don't see my responding to your action as something that is bad (if anything it had a positive effect), and thus I won't be apologizing either.

You sound like a spoiled little child with your, 'you better watch out or I'm gonna tell' attitude. <A HREF="http://underworld.fortunecity.com/playstation/190/Homem..." target="_new">You go ahead</A> and try and hide behind the apron of whomever it is you know at THG, but if they are even slightly objective they'll probably just tell you to stop provoking people.

Not surprising you'd join in.

Now all that's needed is some Jell-O!
