Shaders dont take up alot of space in themselves
Its all the other things, which the 104 seems to have little of
I wonder whatll happen if a layer of SW is removed for gpgpu?
The rest is obviously history.
MS shifted their goals seeing this
Given the state of the NV drivers for the G80 and...
It worked in the past, with lil competition
If the competition shows great improvement over their last gen, and comes close or surpasses nVidia, it...
nVidia needs a new node
Not having one hurts them
Add tesselation improvements seen in the 6xxx series, many of those numbers change, just using a...
More of the same
No new node, no nice perf increases
So, youre saying nVidia is going to have no fixed function Tessellator at all, and itll all be done thru shaders?
I know the interpolation is being...
Thing is, nVidia doesnt have a tesselator in their shrink, nor can anyone at this point consider what other costs die size wise DX11 will need,...
The 3870x2 had faster clocks fewer shaders, so if the 5870 has as many shaders and faster clocks and memory, it should outdo the 4870x2
Sure, and then the refresh would be the 5895, or the 5990. Point is, top card is top card.
Not high perf, but high end
According to sampsa kurri, itll be 299$ US
Also, it takes time to make new...
Not sure its been posted in this thread or not, but 299$ US looks to be the 5870 price
Not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but the 5870 is supposed to idle at 30 watts, or almost half that of the 4870
Tesselation can bring more usable power with same features, if done right. DX10.1, with the 1 less pass is also beneficial, as other things.
Order one from HP for your model, thats about maybe it at this point
Should have been an option for burning a tools and recovery cd. It only restores to a given point, but you should have burned them
I think that the problem is, if people are willing to wait til this demo, and then wait again til release means theyve already made up their minds,...
They want name recognition. All this has to come at the expense of nVidia, whos a more widely known brand.
ATI is playing the upstart spoiler, with...
1 other thing I didnt mention on what we know.
The new cards will have double the flops vs the 4xxx series.
You do realize, to command marketshare,...
With this momentum, and no foreseeable competition in the new DX11 release, ATI stands to do very well
"I would say we don't make money by delivering slow hardware. Our expectation is that we'll give you a really pleasant surprise this year when we...
Thats the problem, people do forget.
I understand that ATI is in a different situation than they were with the 4xxx series, but theyve gained huge...
Lets look at what we know.
The 4770, with its lessor amount of shaders, can crank up to 4890 speeds, but still has inferior ram.
At those speeds...
