we really really need a pro motherboard reviewer
I think he was talking about a Q @ 4GHz
we really really need a pro motherboard reviewer .....
i am not a pro but i am willing to learn...i have a open mind but the only thing really against me is time...
as long as i get free mb's i can be one for am2 boards
but, in theory, a copper heatsink will duct heat off the core fast than aluminum - the aluminum heatsink will give that heat up quicker. I'd reckon to say that both cores will run about on-par at the same temp with each other.
Anyhow - Awesome and concise review, W1z!
Those cards are looking mighty promising! I'm not too surprised to see such low scores in Crysis, though.
I'm guessing that there still isn't an "official" driver from AMD/ATI yet? Hopefully, with a couple of driver releases, we should see the potential of these cards come out of the woodwork.
Kinda shocked by the lack of PCIE 2.0 support, though - I wonder why they went that route
Crysis 2.33GHz vs 3.44GHz
GPU Test 1280x1024 All High with DX10 Water, and Sunshafts forced on.
3.44GHz - 34FPS
2.33GHz - 26FPS
I think its been stated a few times why its only PCI E 1.1.
The bridge chip uses this speed, and Ati's partners wanted the card out ASAP. There is a PCI E 2.0 version of the bridge chip, but I don't think they had time to use it.
I think he means that depending on your settings the results of a review can vary greatly compared to the next guy.
yes, that would be awesome, we need mobo reviews
Hey Wiz, can you answer this question please
as wizz no longer has the card, the best he could do is google it. Best to find it from another review, and paste it into the comments here.
OK, it's 27 cm/ 10-9/16 inches long
Review more Gigabyte products please...? P31 DS3L? (Damn I should have reviewed it ).
I agree. I think we need to see Crossfire 3870s vs a 3870 X2 before we can get heads or tails about what AMD/ATi has done.
(Yes, I saw Wizzard's post about not having two 3870s. Perhaps we should start a fund?)
Also, it seems like page 5 and up from on this forum causes Firefox to crash for me. Anyone else getting this?
first idea: not bad. $1-$2 each would get it fast.
second idea: no problems at all. claer teh caceh and disable any plugins you have.
Am I the only one that thinks ATI could launch a cost-effective 512 MB variant of this card?
Also, do the current drivers allow using two of these in CrossFire?
I did mention it a while ago, my time is fairly limited but I could at least do one a month to help out if your stuck. I will have 2 good boards to compare it with also (Once my x38 DQ6 is returned).
This review, while a little thin, does give some comparison to a 3870 crossfire setup.
Hmm, Tatty doing reviews.
I'm keen on that.
Yes, Tatty's the man for the job. I endorse.
I'd do mobo reviews if I'm given a template, and mobos. lol.
I can do either AMD or Intel.
we can give you everything except for a good digital camera and skill. which cam do you use? are you a motherboard guru? how much time do you have?
I can review software. It is logistically easy for me, and I can evaluate software such as utilities, media mastering, etc....in case there's a dearth of software reviews or it could add to TechPowerUp!. I can dedicate at least five hours on a weekend for these from Feb. onwards.
not really doing software on tpu .. but we need games reviewers for gamepowerup
I used to be the review-staff (with mod powers) for League of Gamers before the vBulletin system shut-down
