    The benches are really quite poor :sigh: They better get the NV35 out the door pritty quick if they want to take back the market they lost to the 9700pro (granted it only totals about 0.5% of the gfx card market share but hay ;)).

    Its also hot (2.5GHz P4 Hot) and very loud 60dBa on full blast :eeek:

    :sigh: What should have been a great 6 months in terms of graphics cards is rapidly turning into a farce.

    nVidia release a right turkey (I knew they shouldda got it out before Chrimble :hehe: ) and ATi are being done for insider trading!

    Did you download the vid from Anandtech? they had one which was doing 79dBa, ;)! It sounds like a jet plane when it gets going, :)! R350 is going to make the Geforce FX look rather silly, the question is how quickly can ATI get the R400 out? if they can stay a cycle ahead then NVidia is going to have to work pretty hard!

    :)

    Im the type of person who likes to see and hear what ppl think bout Pc equipment. I first started on windows 3.1 blah with my 8 mb video card :). but Technology has definatly hit my heart big time. Im not totally sure about whats going to happend once GeForce Fx is released but i am Surelly Excited. Imma leave my Trust in Bit-Tech and see what there opinions are and if they say its a buy then ill go n get it. This message wasnt intended to start trouble just state an opinion

    Personally even if it had an even bigger infcrease in perfomance to the 9700 pro i would still not buy something that sounds like a dust buster.

    The next series of games (Doom 3 ect...) may let the card show off more (hopefully!)...

    As for the cooling, there will be versions w/o the monster cooler.

    Not so, doom3 beachmarks only show 5% games ( with the alpha test ) SO NV is screwed in 'DX9' games as well ! HAHA. And the radion 9700 has dx9 support as well !

    Also the versions without the cooler will be SLOWER in clock speed to keep the temp down.


    Basically NV is screwed :p :naughty:

    The benchmarks don’t really bother me but rather the heat it produces and the stupid fan, ive spent a lot of money on my computer to keep it quiet so I’m really not going to stick a gfx card in with a cooler that gets louder than my old delta screamer.

    I think it will be a R350 for me at least it shouldn’t have a stupid cooler and I can live with the occasional driver error.

    I can't even put a GF FX in my PC, as I have a shuttle. Not that I'd want a vacuum cleaner inside my already super quiet PC

    Moved to hardware...

    :D Very funny.

    Well with a little luck I'll be having a look at the card soon, but I have to say I've been terribly disappointed by its first reviews.

    edit: D'oh! We have a graphics cards forum! I knew that! Moved it there...
