R600 3DMark06 scores

The Turkish website FX57.net spilled the beans today. They allegedly tested the R600XT and XTX model on a Conroe 2.93Ghz with 2GB DDR2-800 RAM together with an Intel i975x motherboard. They came up with the following results in 3DMark 06:

Radeon HD 2900 XTX: 12k | GeForce 8800GTX: 10.5k
Radeon HD 2900 XT: 10k | GeForce 8800GTS: 9k

The operating system used was Windows Vista. They used the Catalyst 7.1 (8.33) which seems rather strange, other reviewers report about issues with drivers, so newer ones should be more likely to be used for testing/benchmarking. That could mean the results are not that meaningful at all. Either the scores are made up or there's a little bit of headroom for newer drivers. Decide for yourself...Source: FX57.net

The 8800gts is looking like the better budget buy, Oc'in might fix that for the 2900xt but the xt looks like it will cost more, from my looking at Wikipedia.

so how long exactly until theses cards are released?

i say r600 will pwn 8800 without a doubt, nevertheless, the most reliable scores will be only after release :)

My birthday's May 24th, a $500 ATI monster would be an amazing birthday present.


Of course, I'm more reasonable than that, and know that I'll be lucky if I get so much as Halo 2 for Vista :p. Ah well. More pressing matters do call, such as my drivers license. May 22nd I can drive legally without a parent beside me...:rockout:.

CRap! I should've waited.... :banghead: Do you guys think that EVGA's TradeUp program will allow to trade an 8800GTS to a R600 XT? I mean.. only if EVGA ever made ATI cards..

Oc'er for life eh.

I wont overvolt the card at first when I get one, I dont think.. until it really needs it. Had bad experience software OC'in compatibility with some games.. so I'll just get/hopefully learn how to bios OC when it starts to show its age.

8800gts/gtx I think will be good competition if the price are ok.. but r600 might have way more OC'in headroom maybe, thats where it counts!

Overclocking an R600 is like putting a turbocharger on a Ferrari. It's fun, but does it really NEED the extra power?

And let's not forget the extreme heat output these things have. Overvolting would be suicide for anyone without liquid cooling.

Oh wait, there's a version for people who can't spend $600 on a video card, I forgot :roll:.

it can never be a fair contest unless both cards are released at the same time, i wouldnt be surpised if the r600 is better than the 8800, but im sure ati have had more than enough to see what the 8800 has and make the r600 better, so casheti, ati dont pwn, is just that they take the piss releasing a product jus so it cud be better than something released 5 months ago, lets see the next nvidia card.

They took so long because unlike nVIDIA, they didn't rush to be the first ones with DX10.

well if the xtx is just an overclocked xt . they should make the xt at least beat the gtx. then again we can just overclock some.

Haha geez.. Anyway, I believe the R600 will sure needs to be OC (of course along with proper cooling) Because the future games are going to be hungry craving performance beasts and will ask for the more. Like for instance S.T.A.L.K.E.R. chokes the 8800 a bit if max out.

I think the xt will only have 512mb ram and 512ram bus...

Thats what I read at wiki.org

The xtx will have 1gig.

Don't see why though, seeing as it looks like crap.

coding/engine I guess, it plays COH at max with no problems at all and that game gets intensive.

I think Nividia has done somthing right with the 8800 from what I hear they give GREAT frame rates and nice visual too.

I got the game and played it, after all the hype it had been producing, and in my opinion it sucked major ass...

Oh I see, so it isn't the card's fault. Well, that's a news! Though knowing in a few months, future release games will still demand an upgrade.
