Guess there are.
Even OcUK have 13 in stock.
lol except the 6eyefinity versions
Am I missing something? Both links I gave you are for the 6 eyefinity versions
HIS H587F2G6DG Radeon HD 5870 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card - Retail
I meant are their any without the 6eyefinity ports?
Don't they all have 6 ports? I thought that was the point.
Never mind Bru!
Oh lol I get it now.
You want the 5870 2GB but without eyefinity 6......
Apparently all 5870 2GB were released with eyefinity 6.
Lol, yep you got it right Bru!
WOW...... I'm just bought HD 5850 2 months ago and another HD 6000 will release in this year ??????
^^ be lucky it's not next month They will be expensive and limited stock, 5xxx is a great choice whole summer/autumn. (edit: if not like 58xx that have gone up in price since launch)
speak for yourself - at first launch the 5850's were averaging £350 - some sites were even close to £400 (450.50EUR) ummm thats something lik 394.19Euros.
I think the british have probably seen the worst prices when it comes to any sort of goods - the british industry/economy/retail isnt so gung ho about rebate/cashback offers as the USA which if retarded IMHO.
I read a really great article 2007/2008? about Larrabee and the author speculated that Intel was planning to temporarily CAN Larrabee and rethink it in terms of functionality or something. Perhaps he meant something in terms of trying to make it do more than just what a regular GPU does today.
So IMO, Intel decided to post pone and rethink Larrabee as a whole. We are talking about architectural changes something in which NVIDIA should have done with Fermi. But that arrogant prick of a CEO decided to release it hence we see the well deserved criticism.
If I can only find that article One thing is for sure, I can't wait for Larrabee to finally get released into the discrete graphics market.
Should make for some good competition.
They are coming out with 2GB & 4GB NON 6 eyefinity versions. I am looking forward to maybe picking up a nice 2GB version
Well HD 5800's are about 7+ months old now, they are ready for a nice re-fresh IMO maybe in around May to June 2010.
Intel competitive in the discrete graphics market?
Intel it probably panicking a little, and rightly so, with Llano coming. The GPU on that thing is said to be a little faster than Redwood (5570/5670) which is at least 2x as fast as the 4200 IGP. Intel just caught up to that thing. If Bulldozer is as good as everyone is hoping it is, then Intel is going to have more problems on their hands than just a good cpu once they put those cores and the gpu on the same die.
Those Ball Busters at TSMC are to blame for everybodies problem. Now we are going to have to wait for that 28nm Radeon GPU that was scheduled to sit inside my case in Q4 2010
Me too, looks to me many people had thos GPUs on schedule for the cases
From the reading I've been doing on Larrabee, it has every potential of being the next-best-thing in graphics for more reasons than one.
I am guessing it was postponed because of heat/power issues because Intel does not want another i740.
I wouldn't discount Intel as a serious contender in the GPU market for the simple reason that Intel can afford several years of R&D, as well as several non-product iterations of a project before coming out with a consumer product. Intel might not be there yet, but there's no reason to think it is not capable of getting there.
ATi GPUs: Different Processes + Different Foundries = Hybrid Architecture
Or has this been posted already?
In summary it's just this:
(Some 32nm + some 28nm)(some TSMC + some GlobalFoundries) = ATi's upcoming "hybrid" GPU architecture
interesting stuff. Thanks for posting
Your killing me.
Intel has never been a serious contender in the GPU market even dating back to their on attempt with the i740. You remember why the i740 was a complete flop? Intel couldn't write drivers to save their life. It was like Larrabee is now in that it look really competitive on paper. That's about as far as it got. They recently outsourced to a company to write drivers for their (I think) ULP graphics.
I forget where I read it but someone at ATI was asked about Larrabee and Intel's approach to it. He stated that Intel is really good at making a CPU. Problem though is that you don't make GPUs the same way.
The point was: Never has been =\= Never will be and they have the resources needed to make it happen if they really want to.
well when you look at it larrabee was needed and it did change things in my mind, the main point intel spammed about larrabee was mimd, and no suprise nvidia's next gen platform at the time 2 years ago ended up with a real mimd based shaders and so will amd's.
I've got an article here stating (back in late 2008) that Nvidia has SIMD shaders. Could you point me to something tangible that explains how or when Nvidia got MIMD?
There was a rumour that Nvidia at one point had the GT300 gpu which had MIMD shaders (back in 2009), but it didn't see light of day. That new gpu is still not taped out and is possibly what is called fermi 2. So, ATI and Nvidia are at the same point with MIMD shaders, they still have those technologies for their gpus in the backburner.
