    Really interesting how the 5870x2 actually has more power per GPU than the 5870... Maybe they should call it the 5875 or 5880?

    Tell Nvidia to stop throwing their cash around, Assassins Creed ran 10.1, but as soon as Nvidia heard that they put an end to it as they had invest in that sa game for their cards. God really getting annoying watching MS and Nvidia tossing money around to label games as theirs.

    i think its the effect of the extra 50MHZ you see there.

    Of course, it depends on what the constraining factor is... and that will depend on each application, or indeed, what is "common" amongst most game engines and their users setups.

    However, we saw before that the statement about ROP constraint is evidenced by game benchmarks.

    I just checked this old thread and the data/pictures arent showing :-(

    Can't see them either. What exactly do ROPs do anyway and why isn't more always better ?

    from what i read its not its much more easier to run and dev for. maybe it really is just the perfect version of 10. Its not a huge jump its just smarter.

    yep.

    I guessed that's what you meant but DX11 brings some big things to the table plus it dissassociates itself with dx10 which is considered a failure to some.

    Dx10.1!!!!dx10 is abouth 60% compilable because nvidia didnt but the big parts on it!because it would have made the die even bigger then it is now(GT200) Dx 11 will be here to FIX that and add couple of new features on it:) Dx 10 would not have been a fail if both ati and nvidia have gone with the desine what MS offered them!

    So any DX 11 games being released anytime soon? Didn't think so... More powerful cards = cool. DX 11 = Don't care...

    By then, most likely there will be more powerful "DX 11" cards on the market.

    No point, I just don't get the hype with new DX hardware. Remember DX 10? Remember people rushing out to buy DX 10 hardware when it took a long time to actually come out with a DX10 game? I just hope DX 11 fares better than 10 did is all.

    No they aren't, people seem to think this because ATi's cards have a hardware tessellation unit. The problem is that the current hardware tessellation unit on ATi's cards(it has nothing to do with DX10.1 by the way) is not compatibile with DX11. And while the current tessellation unit on ATi's cards are capable of some (not 85%) of the capabilities DX11 requires, it isn't capable of anywhere near all. So no DX11 for current ATi cards.

    Thanks for the info newteckie! Now I just hope game developers make strictly DX11 games, instead of beating around the bush to make everyone happy with older hardware. In terms of graphics, not much has changed in the past couple years.

    I could see that being the case for the Texture Fillrate. 80 more Gflop a card, and the difference in Pixel fill rate and especially Memory Bandwidth is massive for just a 50mhz difference.

    I hope for the same thing, but I know it won't be true. At the very least I would like to see games built on DX11 first, and then adapted to DX10/9, instead of the way it is done now with games built on DX9 with DX10 features added in as an afterthought.

    Very very nice. It is getting harder to keep up with the latest in GPU tech. I love my 4870, passed on the 4890 but may have to snag a 5800 series.
