    Yeah, but why? Why do you need another power hungry monster to play console ports???? WHY?:banghead:

    because crysis 2 is on the way, and its going to be a shite port like always? :D

    Crytek declared already that Crysis 2 will have much lesser system requirements than the first one, so...

    yeah but console ports always take 5x the power to run than the consoles have, due to shitty porting :p
     
    HillBeast says thanks.

    There's only room for a 5890, but there's no sign of it coming. ATi is probably finished with the 5XXX series. They will probably make the 6XXX series and keep it till nVidia release there flagship card (probably a card that performs at least about a 30% more than a HD5970) to compete with the 6XXX series. :pimp:

    they will definitely make a 5890, the question is whether or not its a die shrink, or just a redesign like the 4890 was.

    Hopefully they do make it. I'd like to see a new powerful card from ATi. :)

    The first cards of 6 series from Ati, are going to be: 6550, 6570 and 6670
    I have read somewhere i really can't remember, that all these 3 cards, which will be the lower line of the series, will come out before the end of 2010 (in fact that was in a graph)
    All other top of the line cards will come out in 2011

    The 6670 will probably be on par with the 5770.

    From what Ive read from CryEngine 3, no porting needs to be done. Map source and scripting are comming from one source, and can branch out to be compiled to either the PC, Xbox, or PS3.

    Ultra off topic :D

    this card will probably never be released to the public, and it will be watercooled.
    im guessing no one has seen this yet?


    Over at EXPreview, some photographs have surfaced of the shortened version of the GTX 480. This PCB design appears to be a complete redesign of the GTX 480 that we recently reviewed from Nvidia. The interesting thing is, these designs are beginning to surface before cards are even globally available through retailers. This fact brings us to believe that AIBs have been working on these designs for quite some time and that a redesign has long been in the cards.

    This non-reference card appears to feature not only a shorter card length, but it also should have dual 6-pin power connectors as opposed to the current 8 + 6 pin design. In addition to that, there is a possibility that these cards could launch at the same clocks as the reference cards but possibly be hampered in overclocking by their dual 6 pin design. This design is drastically different from even the first custom PCB cards that we reported on around the time of the GTX 480 launch.

    Backside of this custom PCB design reveals how short the GTX 480 design can be - this board is as short as GeForce GTS 250

    As we’ve stated before in our GTX 480 review, there will likely be a ton of custom PCB designs out there that could possibly help Nvidia stay in the game, although as it stands right now there still aren’t any GTX 480’s out there for sale yet and the card is indeed quite hot and power hungry. AIBs hope to remedy both of these issues with custom coolers and non-reference designs.

    Taiyanfa's custom design PCB lowers the maximum power consumption to 225W [75W from PCIe x16, two 6-pin connectors count for additional 150W total], which is most probably achieved by lowering the GPU clock. However, we see a lot of potential in this design - for instance, populating six PCIe slots on All-PCIe boards such as ASUS P6T6/P6T7 or EVGA's X58 Classified 4-Way SLI for a GPGPU computing monster, single card design for HTPC chassis, or simply users that don't have 8+6-pin power - such as numerous workstation chassis or already assembled computers from Dell, HP and the like.

    Like GTA-IV. Runs as badly on the PS3 as on my 3.6GHz Core i7 with 33% more threads and nearly 400% more transistors.

    Gabe Newell made himself a c**t when he stepped on Sony's stage. Lesson: Don't talk trash about something then eat your own words.

    combine your 2 posts into 1, just edit 1 and copy the contents then delete 1 of them.

    that new gtx 480 above is pure sex imo. to hell with cylindrical caps! but one question, with the cooler holes the way they are, how does anyone expect toe vregs to get good cooling?? or are they the crappy kind tht dont need to be cooled by heatsinks?? imo those are the crapy kind even though most would agree, but as volterra has tough us actively cooled vrms can be a great thing

    Generally they release there two top end cards first.(ie. 4850/4870 launched together, 5870/5850 launched together, GTX470/GTX 480 launched together) and then the lower end ones start coming in later. I don't see why they wouldn't do the game with the 6 series. Im expecting the 6870 and 6850 to be the first launched.

    hopefully it runs cooler than the initial 480, now we just need a chip.
