X1300Pro better be damn good for $150, considering you can get a X800GT for less.
I'm as giddy as a school girl.
are these guaranteed numbers?
i shure hope so
if those slides dont look official enough for you, just wait 3 days
october 4th is the release date for the cards and the mobos, i was told by a supplier near me (in aus, so we get it a day earlier )
That's my birthday.
From the looks of the spec sheet, the only difference between the XT and XL (besides the option for 512mb) is clock speeds.
any word if there will be agp support?
Last I read it is only clocks. So it seems like a good idea to get a XL and overclock that bad boy.

i am so happy now i can see some real benhmarks when the cards come out so its not all Nvida vs ATI PR crap.
The X1800 sheet lists the X800XL twice, instead of putting the XT at top. Bad time for a typo.
Looks good. bout only number worth looking at are pixel pipelines and 3dMark05 scores. wonder if those are jus estimated or would love to kno wot rig they are running. Noticing also the use of percentage performance increase andwhen you come to the graph comparing to the 7800GTX the use of a different scale. All very simple little details designed to fox the consumer.
But they aint gna slip it past us. We want performance dammit!!!
Looks like the midrange card might be quite good value. If it has the performance. Can't see the point of offering 128/256mb models. They should really have gone 256/512mb. Really push the boat out though then the price for performance wouldn't be so great. Though with games such as COD2 coming up really looking to take advantage of the increased memory I don't think it will be too long before we see something like that come along.
Wow, guess I'll be getting one then huh?
Wow, guess I'll be getting two then huh?
Uhm, what difference does the extra memory do in most games? 128 or 256MB is fine for 98% of all games. Besides, all cheap graphics cards have crap memory when you get 256MB over 128MB so they tend to peform slower than their 128MB counterparts anyhow. On the high-end things are different, but then you end up paying out of your nose for the extra memory since that stuff is stupidly expensive.
Blah, you pimp. I think SLI/Crossfire is a sad way of increasing power. Can't make the chip better, just use two to be faster eitherway. Not my thing.
And the extra memory could help in games, so it doesn't have to compress its textures. Like in DoomIII, if you want to run that on Ultra you need 512MB Gram. I tried Ultra on my 6600GT (256MB) and got a really nice looking slideshow.
Vertex shader 3.0 rocks!!
Eh but you have to admit you'd do it if you were loaded and/or had the money.
wow i cant wait!!!
I can spend it better, so no. If I were a millionaire... I might think about it. lol.
Or buy a GTO2 for 200 bucks; and get an X850XT PE =)
If I had the money you'd find me camped outside neweggs warehouse just waiting for the first shipment of crossfire X1800s and mobos.
Also my specs would be though the roof. I would build the most awesome PC ever.
Oh to be a millionaire. :woot:
You mean like mine?
