    Its not supposed to go against the 8800GTX, thats the job of the 2900XTX not the XT. It does look pretty impressive though.

    you don't compare a hd 2900xt with a 8800GTX when you know good and well HD 2600XTX exists.

    True, its not meant to compete against the GTX (hell the 640MB version has 128MB more of GDDR3 memory and probably 128Bit more memory ring bus (384bit versus 256bit) and yet it still gets trumped by the card. Id love to see this card go against the GTX though, just from a pure my card can kick your cards ass standpoint (even though Im willing to bet the 8800GTX will put a small hurting on it.)

    I think the hd 2900 xt is supposed to compete with the 8800gts and the xtx is supposed to compete with the gtx/ultra.

    Purely guessing, though.

    nvm, someone already posted before me.

    I'm sure the x2900xtx (ddr4) will beat the gtx/ultra by 10-25%. I'll wait for that to come out.:toast:

    yeah Im considering the 2900xtx2 its going to be the same price as a 2900xtx.. the xtx has higher clocks on both ram and core.. I'm looking for a top end single pci-e solution.. I may get a 2900xt nexted month instead of waiting around though.. atm I have nothing =-S need to flash my card back.

    Thats pretty good results, especially with lower ram (hopefully an indicator of the ddr4 power over ddr3).

    not sure wot im gonna do, want to have a dual card solution, but lol.. i have zero money atm. :cry: and ill need to get a new mobo, new processor, new ram, and an extra sata hdd for a raid config.. Im gonna b screwed if i put it on my credit card, so thats not an option.

    I could always whore myself out, or sell a kidney, but maybe thats extreme, anyways, my fiancee may object to the whoring out part.. :laugh:

    wait a minute, 47.9 fps with max setting in oblivion at just 1280x1024????


    I run it at 1920x1200 and get that fps and more? with HDR and AA enabled.. that cant be right?

    Edit: wait, nm, I didnt have interior shadows to max, that makes a fair difference, and i have some tweaks on it apart from god knows how many mods

    Maybe Nvidia will but read that is just the XT, there is also an XTX coming at the release.

    The price is what seems promising, some price war stuff would be good for the consumer and it sure beats the price off of BFG's 8800's

    Wow what a chocker... A new GFX card beats an 6 months old card in benchmarks... Im truely chocked... And it does it barely...? Is this really the monster we were waiting for?? Im really disapointed... I was expecting much more from ATI. And yes i know this isnt the 1gb XTX, but still!

    6month old card thats "just" getting ok drivers, against a card that will surely have better driver support on initial release

    They already have one......just sat there waiting (supposidly according to reports), a 8900GTX/GTS, the 8800 series is actually a cut down disabled 8900GTX apparently, there are a couple of threads in here on the very subject. I can't remember what the shader count etc was but I do recall doing a little maths when reading it that based on the additional shaders etc etc it should come in roughly 30-40% faster than the 8800GTX but thats was just a personal guesstimate, you know what these spurious news sorces can be like.

    320mb, because at 1280x1024, there wont be a difference.

    Only reason they are testing at 1280x1024 is because they didnt have a higher resolution monitor at hand. This card isnt exactly for people that game at those resolutions.

    Basically, this isnt ATIs answer to the 320mb 8800gts.
