    as far as i know test has been done on 3.3GHz 65nm phenom, next gen phenom is only 45nm and 3 or 6MB L3, so not a big deal, still slover than q6600 OCed.
    so wait for bench on 4GHz quad intel proc. (must get ~x15000).
    ......and for all nvidiots well 4 GPU vs nvidia 3 GPU that is 10cm^2 VS 15CM^2 on nvidia, or if i say 500w TDP VS 700W TDP or better....... ~900$ VS 1800$ :)
    i hope that all nvidiots understand what i am saying

    Judging by the CPU score, i would definitely say it's with physX. Heck: even the pic's name suggests it.


    I think the Vantage eXtreme score of the 2*R700 will turn out better then what is shown in the OP BUT it will fall behind 3*GTX280.

    That said, if 2*R700 come close to 3*GTX280, that will mean total defeat to nVidia's because it would mean that nVidia would need 3 cards to beat ATI's 2 cards (i'm not talking cores here) and, on top of that, ATI's cards will be cheaper, which makes it even worse.


    Also, and i believe this to be VERY relevant: does anyone know if that ATI score was made with the physX thingy? If it wasn't, ...

    ATI should be working on their version of physX drivers or whatever you call it to try and make an appropriate response to CUDA, no?

    Havoc is the ati's rumoured response to physX. We'll see when it takes action, maybe around the same time as the 4870x2.
     
    HTC says thanks.

    Yes, i know about Havok, but it's still unknown, @ this time, when such a thing will be available, if ever *knocks on wood 3 times, hoping it does soon*.

    I posted "physX thingy" because, @ present, there's that modified something to enable physX on ATI, besides Havok.

    Yeah I think I saw something about that too. I'm not sure how that would work though, at least not to the same degree. PhysX is derived from Cuda technology right? And nvidia has licensing on that I though, so I don't see how Ati could really run it, maybe artificially or something. Oh when did the graphics industry become so complicated......:confused:

    The new ATI cards are amazing, the XFIRE scaling just blows NV's SLI efforst, ATI have delivered big time with the new cards, i hope NV take notice because the ATI 4000 series has made NV's 200 series look rather comical at their current price, oh ye, my M8 just got an 4870 and the AA performance is out of this world, most games only take a 10fps hit with 4x AA ENABLED.:eek:

    I think my point got a little blurred through people quoting what I was saying. What I meant was that although we're seeing a good xtreme score for this benchmark when comparing it to three GTX280's, we're not comparing it to GTX280 cards that have the new phyx drivers, (yes, it matters, you're already using a benchmark and there is no other bench data available) are overclocked, etc. In all reality for a couple generations now Nvidia has had a horrible price-performance ratio on their cards, but people buy them because they're always the higher performer. (remember the 8800 Ultra?)I don't even think we should take price into consideration when we're replying to a post about performance on a benchmarking program that can double your CPU score with physx drivers. What we need to do is cool our jets, wait for more benches to come out and see what happens. The fact that we're doing speculation on a card that isn't released is all-together stupid. It is nice to know that AMD is still a power-player though.

    to you all i have to say is check my sys specs and i ask were the stuttering is cause i haven't seen it


    also for this just for those who don't know because of the new interconnect chip you can run 4 4870X2s together for octafire

    i wish the GTX280 had arrived earlier on time back at the end of 07 like it was supposed to. I know i like the new aTI cards, but i still support Nvidia, and the GTX280 would have broken AMD's back and put millions out there lowering the amount of HD4k cards sold over all. Kinda like how the 7800GTX outsold the x1800XT. But alas nvidia has to rely on there lower end cards to make a profit

    You know that with all your Nehalem talk you are expected to have the most badass Nehalem system on the forums when it's out right?

    And this would be a good thing so you could pay even more ridiculous prices in a competition-less market? :confused:

    no AMD would have there day today still.

    One thing is though Nvidia drivers arn't mature either, and these cards do not preform like they should for being double a G92, so i think time will tell what happens

    Eh, I think this is very good for amd, they need it. They are falling farther and farther behind in the cpu market, ati is going to have to be their saving grace. And if nvidia puts them too low, well then we're screwed.

    None of the drivers are fully worked out, and none of the capabilites of either line of cards has been seen yet b/c there really isn't the proper software to test it. In a few months things should look clearer, I'm hoping ati takes the next couple of rounds though, I like their prices much better. :D

    Well, At work, we just got in New Dell AX2 Machines, They Certainly are quick, and we needed it considering the other machines were just too sluggish for Internet Database Management. Im pretty sure i could of streamlined the Systems but im not the admin of those machines.

    I'm sorry, but after reading through this thread, I fell out my chair laughing at that post! :laugh:


    and that right there gives this new ATI series some serious ass-kicking leverage; if we can see what 2 R700s pull, dollar for dollar, you're still far under the closest 1337 performance offering from nVidia . . . and even if nVidia did manage something to compete or outdo the 4870x2, for starters it'd probably produce more heat and noise (if not be dubbed Chernobyl and slapped with a radioactive sticker and MSDS sheet), and would probably be priced close to twice that of the 70x2 . . . think about it, how much of a performance difference would there have to be over the 4870x2 to justify twice the cost as being viable to both manufacturers and consumers? And to bring in a product like that at current $600-$700, nVidia would have to wrist-slash the price of all their other cards.

    Sorry, but this GPU series round goes 100% to ATI!


    stuttering? What stuttering do you speak of?

    Oh! you must be talking about within Crysis, right?! Hell, that's the only game that takes 5min of additional load time with a single card once the map is loaded up, and 5.5min with dual cards.

    Seriously, though, I rarely experience any amount of stutter that detracts from a game.

    Well my main point is it took two gpus to top a one gpu gt2XX :D

    But all valid points.

    All i can say is that nowadays what I think matters to people the most is the performance to cost ratio, and honestly, ATi has that over nvidia now. The nvidia cards are badass cards, and right now all the quickest cards out there. But if you notice on multiple setups ATI has the crown, at least according to HWBot!!!
