    3DFX's Canceled Rampage GPU Pictured, Put Through the Paces in 3D Mark 2001

    Agreed! I remember buying my Voodo 2 8mb, and the graphics quality change and speed was incredible, made everything seems like a brand new game. Quake 2 with mirror reflections, JSF with lens flare, and many other improvements running so smoooooth.

    I didn't knew the meaning of flaming had changed. I was willing to argue about valid points, not if the earth is round, or humanity or system specs (which I thought you'd be smart enough to conclude it's an outdated information, but I was wrong). I'll stop here with you.

    Oh boy, will I have to repeat this again ? "I thank you for buying these cards", really. My face won't change a single notch on the color scale for that. :cool: oh shit, it is blue now! :D damn, green now..... :roll: As for me, I'll remain getting these $500 video cards for $150-200 used 2...

    And I'm quite the opposite, I'm very surprised by it... "=] But anyway, maybe I'm just a cheap bastard, because to me a 7970 is already on the group of price inflated cards... come on... 2 years from $550 to $300 ? a 4870 at that time would be $150 already from $300 or even not selling...

    But, as far as I remember, these prices used to drop like a rock.... and now we are not seeing this anymore... prices still drop, but waaaaay more slowly... and this is the price inflation I'm talking all this time... lunch price + very slowly price drop compared to the past... and yes... a $1k...

    Frick, but back then X850 XTPE was our Titan from that time, correct me if I'm wrong... Edit: 6800 ultra seems to be the one back then...

    Well like I said.... nothing against it.... after all that's the high end market, right ? I'll won't complain about high end prices.... But just don't forget how number changed to accommodate a "new" price point. Using AMD as an example. 5800 was the top single processor card line.... 6800...

    Yepz, that was the idea, I'm in no way trying to get into any discussion war here man. :) Yepz, but what we have today are cards pretty much even, right ? Agreed and disagreed. Competition has been very healthy since 8800 vs 3800-4800 series, I can't see lack of competition being the...

    Even thought dates are not right, you still get the point, right ? I guess on 2009 HD5870 was launched aorund $400 and HD5850 on $300... right ? And it was a matter of months (not even 5 is my guess), they were arouns $200-$280 mark.... we're talking about the high end cards of that time. From...

    Call me crazy, but I still can't get the point from these prices, even after being "slashed".... I bought my first "high end" VGA around 1998 and it was a Monster Voodoo 2 8mb.... around $220.00....... and prices for "top end" vga stayed like that until not long ago.... they were around $250...
