NVIDIA Pitches GeForce GTX 300 Series to Clinch Performance Crown

NVIDIA's latest DirectX 11 compliant GPU architecture, codenamed "Fermi," is getting its first consumer graphics (desktop) implementation in the form of the GeForce GTX 300 series. The nomenclature turned from being obvious to clear, with a set of company slides being leaked to the media, carrying the GeForce GTX 300 series names for the two products expected to come out first: GeForce GTX 380, and GeForce GTX 360. The three slides in public domain as of now cover three specific game benchmarks, where the two graphics cards are pitted against AMD's Radeon HD 5870 and Radeon HD 5970, being part of the company's internal tests.

Tests include Resident Evil 5 (HQ settings, 1920x1200, 8x AA, DX10), STALKER Clear Sky (Extreme quality, No AA, 1920 x 1200, DX10), and Far Cry 2 (Ultra High Quality, 1920x1200, 8x AA, DX10). Other GPUs include GeForce GTX 295 and GTX 285 for reference, just so you know how NVIDIA is pitting the two against the Radeon HD 5000 GPUs, given that the figures are already out. With all the three tests, GTX 380 emerged on top, with GTX 360 performing close to the HD 5970. A point to note, however, is that the tests were run at 1920 x 1200, and tests have shown that the higher-end HD 5000 series GPUs, particularly the HD 5970, is made for resolutions higher than 1920 x 1200. AA was also disabled in STALKER Clear Sky. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 300 will be out in Q1 2010.

Update (12/15): NVIDIA’s Director of Public Relations EMEAI told us that these slides are fake, but also "when it's ready it's going to be awesome".

Lol iwas kidding with you :toast: I know not everybody wants to upgrade to the latest and greatest for a few FPS increase. I totally understand but coming from a bencher/OCer point of view an extra 1000 3dmarks never really hurt. (I dont really game much anymore) Best of both worlds imo. :cool:
meh ... not used to the TPU jokes yet :o,... but anyways my thoughts are correct , those OCers/benchers don't actually play a lot of games ;)

So , you can say , what it matters is speed , but you don't see ... err , logntime differences, other experiences if you have a single card for a year or so , you guys just switch to a new every month ; which is not anything bad and Im okay with , as you said best to the both worlds :toast:

orally?
buttrape, is my guess.



EVerything is just guesses and speculation, but its no surprise that if Nv cant keep up with ATI's cards at a competitive price point (read: 10% faster is fine for 30% more expensive, lol) - so they did a redesign. Both sides of the fence do that, when they have a sucky generation.

I hope they nv doesn't take too long I kinda want one. Also want a 5xxx so I can do a comparison. Here's hoping that I win the lottery though :D
