I expected there to be a lot of fanfare and reviews over the new Titanium series upon release, but sweet mother of pearl! Everywhere I go there's another Geforce Ti review, with graph after graph after graph. And the moment the 8500's become available, I can just imagine that no hardware website will be able to do anything except post 8500 reviews, Ti 500 reviews, or Ti 500 vs. 8500 reviews.

I think this is the first time in my life I've gotten sick of looking at benchmarks. That's it, the fat lady's sung, somebody declare me dead and bury me :p

Personally, I can't wait for the Ti 500 vs. 8500 reviews. :)

It will be very very close, I can tell you that!

I hope so. The closer together ATI and NVidia are, the harder they'll try to get on top, to the benefit of us all.

Nah, I think I'll wait for a more objective evaluation. ;)

if in doubt blame microsoft...

They have! Look at the preview! It was about as fast as the GeForce3 Ti 500 in 3DMark2001. This basically means it will perform roughly as well as the Ti500 in DirectX8 games. Older games don't matter! They're fast enough already!

its quite a bit slower (just under the stendard gf3) with good drivers it should kill the gf3ti500 but i somehow doubt it

if in doubt blame microsoft...

This sucks! Now that the Ti cards are being released, I know longer have the top of the line video card! I feel very sad now! :(

Don't worry about it- T1500 isn't much better, and what I do is mod my vid card, so regardless what comes out mine is special=) I usually enable sidebanding and fastwrites, as well as make it Quadro.

would making a geforce 3 quadro give a performance boost in games?
or is it only the geforce 2 ultra that can be modded into the other card.
Oh yea and just how hard is it to do an insane voltage mod and heavily overclock the GPU and MEM?

The Quadro won't give performance increase in games- just 3d Apps. But it does make it special:)

Bottom line for me is, it doesn't matter which is slightly faster than the other, if, as seems likely, the Radeon 8500 has better picture quality than Geforce3 whatever series and the drivers are ok, I'll buy the Radeon...these cards are so damn fast that speed really isn't an issue anymore currently.

I don't doubt ATI, their tech support is next to none (or maybe that's cause I live a few minutes away from their main headquarters in Thornhill). They replaced my defective ATI TV WONDER Card within a couple of days! AMAZING! I haven't seen any other company do that! From previous experience with ATI, they don't release drivers often, but when they do release a driver you get lots of new features and a huge performance gain. ATI RAGE PRO TURBO anyone?

Tisk tisk tisk, When something breaks on my comp it gets replaced by Xi computer by the next day- I love overnight shipping:)

personally i think the ti-500 / 8500 comparison will be decided upon drivers... the detonator 4's are very fast and stable (im using em), its just a matter of if ATI can do the same, or better.

dud drivers can kill a product
