LOL - then choked...
Going on reports their top card will not be much better than a 5870, the fact they can't even give us performance figures and instead give some naff announcement about making an announcement confirms this. NV fanboys prepare to set sail on the NV boat of fail..
have patience young rhino the high end always comes first
I've been reading their article and here is what they are indicating (no it's not from Charlie this time):
Fermi won't be seen until sometime in May 2010, (Q2 of FY 2011)
Delay is the result of bug(s) or thermal related issues
They know the specs and performance numbers but wouldn't state them. However, did state that clock frequencies (650 MHz) is lower then expected and it has an effect on performance (hint, hint). They also indicate that the 470 and 480 will be competitive towards the 5850 and 5870. But did indicate that 470/480 won't be a knock out. Indicating that ATI's offering in performance is superb. They are not sure if 650 MHz will be the final clock rate though.
ATI will have re-spun and re-binned their upcoming products (clocks, etc) to compete
GF100 is using A3 making this the 3rd revision indicating a problem
No information regarding power consumption
LOL new avvy !!
High end isn't here yet. Do you know when we will see any mainstream cards from Nvidia, you see to be some sort of representative?
it doesnt really matter in the end. there arent that many dx11 capable games right now and the ones that are dont look any different then their dx10 counterparts. also, i am running gtx280s in SLI and i can max every dx10 game out there at 1920x0180. so in my mind there really is no rush. im just mad at nvidia for not offering a mid range card after they pushed back the date again and again and again...
Dirt 2 looks much better than it's DX9 counterpart. No there isn't a lot of DX11 games, but it's already more popular than DX10 (DX9.1) was. If I was running GTX280's in SLi I would have no reason to change either.
this is how i feel...
ur right FIT, to SLI these it takes kinda alot for most of us and I assume their gonna draw alot of juice too..
I'm sure the retailer withdrew the listing? When I click http://www.sabrepc.com/p-174-xfx-geforce-gtx-480-2gb-gddr5-pci-express-x16-retail.aspx it asks me for a username and password....
Also how come it's going to be unveiled March 26th? What about the Fermi demo at the last CES? Perhaps I'm misunderstanding but wasn't that intended as an 'unveiling' or is a 'sneek-peek' something different?
ATI HD5890 please
EDIT: it is back up and still advertised
I am more of an ATI fan, but still..... we need competition. Properly priced competition! I don't want a mid range g-card to start costing $300 .
September? Aww, but they said Q1 2010....
I have found the comments here amusing given teh fact that alot of folks here possible have an ATI 5970 in their machine that also costs $699. Until there are actual prices listed on merchants websites we should play "wait and see". That sabrepc site looks extremely fishy to me and is not able to be navigated to...getting a Windows pop up asking for a password before any page loads.
While trying to find more info on this card release I ran across on old web page back from when the 7800XT (think it was XT model but it was a 7800) was about to be released and the pricing was $849. When I purchased my 8800 GTS 512's the 8800 Ultra was selling for $800 and it was not a new product at that time.
We have no performance specs and really absolutely hardly any info to go on for Nvidia's new cards but from what Nvidia wants us to believe about the Fermi performance then $700 will be justified if it performs at or close to a 5970.
I am a fan of Nvidia products and as history shows us Nvidia products have always out performed ATI product and this has never changed. If both ATI and Nvidia have equally performing products on similar platforms then we as customers will win due to price cuts.
We need more info on these cards before we can draw any conclusion and I hope they deliver the performance Nvidia is leading us to believe they will as well as taking video card technology to a whole new level. Now we wait for the first benchmarks on these cards to surface.
WHy do you think he was laughing about it then!?:shadedshu Also your comment isn't accurate at all.
Something tells me nvidia is going to debut a monster of a card.
I think the L1 & L2 caching,384bit mem interface,decent clocks and it should easily beat out the 5870 not sure about the 5970 but it will be close.
considering how long it took them, it needs to be or this will be a 2900 without the fact of a buyout happening at the time that part was released.
Seriously, you all are going nuts over some random website's pre-order price?
I seem to remember the HD5800 pre-order prices to be very similar...
Don't judge the product until we know how much it actually costs, and how it actually performs.
I highly doubt they won't be competitive. If the GTX480 is more powerful than the HD5870, then it will cost more, however there will be lower cards that perform similar to the HD5870 that will likely cost the same. Just like the GTX200 series and the HD4000 series.
boy ya'll are taking his post too far, he was being sarcastic is all.
Someone needs to email these to nvidia.
