Haha woot for being quote worthy!
HAHAHAHAHAH , Indeed , it's funny , but it's also something to think about , nvidia does gives large amounts of money towards hyping and sponsoring.
Still getting a GTX 260.
Agreed almost every game that i play says powered by nvidia.
how can it when i have an intel + ati rig?
look like they took them down
huh? I am talking about nvidia sponsoring a lot of major games. Arkham Asylum is an example.
Nvidia's "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" division are disbanded now.
So no more Nv sponsred game.
Good very good
I am still disappointed in these prices. I was really hoping the rumors where wrong and the 5850 was going to sell at $250. I know these are "early adopter" pricing for "ultra enthusiast" products, but still these could have pushed the price-performance bar down a little.
Right now the 5850 looks to be about GTX285 (performance and price) and the 5870 looks to be GTX295 (performance and price). Especially in Japan where it looks like the the 5870 will sell for 50,000yen and the 5850 will sell for 34,000yen (5870 at 50,000yen ~= $547 so $400US looks cheap to me). I was really hoping the 5850 was going to give >GTX285 performance for GTX275 pricing. Guess I will hold onto my GTS250 and wait another month for the Juniper (5700 series) release and see if anything changes there. If still nothing then maybe X-mas time something will change.

lol....that's funny ^
No doubt the 5870 is a brilliant product with impressive tech, and I am certain it has Nvidia concerned about its GT300 release since the GT300 will be a lot more expensive to manufacture (512bit bus, larger die, lower yields) than the 5870. And with ZERO talk about Larrabee at Intel's IDF this week, it looks like ATi is the only one able to push the tech up a level right now.
Yeah I can't find them anywhere on the site now. Sold out?
I think the new cooler will give them more interesting design. D@m that thing look sexy.
DVI-D? It isn't a DVI-I dual-link?
Dvi-i carries both digital and analouge signals.Dvi-d is dual link.
Just run HDMI and don't worrie about it
Isn't that the same lol
I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but anyone know off-hand how much power these will draw? I would guess something similar to a 4850/70 - right?
DVI-I carries an analog signal which I need for my KVM. No DVI-I means I'd have to spend like $400 for a DVI-D KVM.
5870 is Idling around 27watts and IT'S high is about 188watts
I believe it's like 30w idle and 180 or so loaded
It's here... BUY IT!!!
If by buy you mean auto-notify... then yes buy.
