    Once I get my new monitor I'll be playing at 1680x1050, with the odd occasion playing 1080p if I take the PC downstairs.

    Just noticed, if you get a 4870X2 and once I get my new CPU and cooler, we will have near identical systems! :cool:

    The 8800GTX was also 10.5" long, its pretty much a standard length for high-end cards.

    Here's what went wrong. This story was published properly. Then I worked on a phenom article in which I chose the same image filenames (1.jpg, 2.jpg.....) as the one on this article. Uploading those Phenom article's images overwrote files on the server. Fixed.

    Well, damn.

    Seeing as how there's already news of Nvidia rushing ahead with g300 GPU plans, I take it there's no dual-g92b-55nm card in the works from Nvidia? That'd be a pretty neat card, but since the g200 is already out, is all dev on the g92 dead?

    but from my personal experience i have never known how it looks like , well then i only played on crossfire for 2 hrs. maybe i needed more time .

    Didnt notice that before. Thanks for pointing it out.

    What I dont get, how do they know what the highest score is going to be on that day??

    Or is the just a draft, basically showing the partners what is going to go on the retail box. Then when it has actually been done it will be updated with the correct data.

    August 12 is the date for the street. The preview is still slated for Monday. :cool:

    AMD just did a tit for tat (9800GTX+ launch; preview & then 4 weeks later the product hits retail)

    Preview doesn't amount for a launch, does it?

    I really hope there isn't microstuttering issues with HD4870X2. It looks promising, but we'll just have to wait and see. btw, does anyone know much it costs for AMD to make HD4870X2s? It would be interesting to know. :twitch:

    I wonder sometimes if the guys from 3DFX are working for ATI.

    I guess that depends on the definition of a launch .. the 9800GTX+ was launched on the 16th of June according to Nvidia.

    Obviously the definitions differ then, and they are specific to NV and ATI. The HD4850 was launched/released on the same day, though samples were sent out early and NDAs struggled to keep a gag on us.

    (Nvidia) -- tHIS IS mADNESS !!!!!

    (ATi) No this is RADEEEOOON !!!

    (ATi) :nutkick: (Nvidia)

    yeah i wonder if anyone from 3dfx went to ATi, i knew the merger messed up ATi a little with people not wanting to relocate offices

    Didnt 3dFX get bought by Nvidia? so they would have all the engineers

    Technically speaking the 4850 was launched the day it was in people's hand and they started posting their bench results. AMD was forced to launch the 4850 with previews. Even the 4870 was available on launch day.

    Totally different with the GTX260 and 9800GTX+ launch.

    Nvidia didnt buy all of 3dfx just the bits they wanted, think of it more along the lines of a pack of wolves closing in and taking the little peices they want. For instance Nvidia doesnt own the rights to 3dfx SLI technology some 2d grahpics company does that does specialized computers for bussiness ect. NVidia bought what tech they wanted and the rest of the tech world feed on the remains.

    It's just that it used to be nvidia & 3DFX, ATI wasn't even in the game with any card, just seemed like shortly after the nvidia, 3DFX buy out, that ATI started coming out with cards to compete against nvidia. & here they are today still battling, I sometimes wish 3DFX was still around to battle.

    I disagree ,ATI at the time had the radeon 8500 and was about to launch the 9500 pro around the time Nvidia bought 3DFX.After that the 9700 pro and XT`s started.i remember this because when i went in to buy my V5000 Sanjay at the store ask if I would buy the 9500 for $150 dollars cheaper ,I said no and the rest is history.
