lol crazyceo is such a troll and this card is like the rest of the line a fail.
Elladan ...why mention gt200? I didn't and I don't think anyone else will. That bit kinda went over my head!
The true experts at recycling old tech is nVidia ...however HD6xxx is a combo old and new with the limiting factor this time being that ATI wanted this gen to be on a 32^nm bit TMSC couldn't pruduce it so they AMD, had to stick with 40^nm.
Thanks for the support Fingers66, however I was just pointing out the opinions of respected sites such as Anandtech!
crazyceo..."fingerbob69, you are arguing about a low end card that's been hammered by the GTX460 768mb & 1GB which also went on to hammer everyother ATi card upto and including the 5850"
Which 'low end card'? the 5750?5770?or quite perversely, the 450?
And as for the 460 1gb v 5850 question?
The 5850 has been the better performing DX11 card since October 2009 and still is.
The 460 1gb has been better value since July 2010... it's release date!
got my palit 460GTX 1GB Sonic Platinum for 205 euros (170 pounds)
I'm guessing that VAT over there is overly inflating those prices?
hoping to see the 450GTS here at arround 80 euros tho, should make a nice physX card (240 is going at that price range)
But how do they Fold?
they are unhinged
Soon they'll be no ATi fanboys...
Would this be an interesting dedicated PhysX card?
Sure takes a lot of power for beeing half a gtx460 though.
If you don't mind a hovercraft in your case.
I'm really dissappointed that NVidia havent managed to reduce power consumption and heat in the gtx480, it's been out for a while now, but all improvements seem to go in the direction of the gtx460. (Which is really doing a great job)
Shame also that Physx puts a big dent in performance if you don't use a dedicated card. Bit-tech physx test
So while the HD5870 is the cooler-quieter variant, the GTX480 has a bit more to offer (cuda).
I'd PERSONALLY go for the quieter version (ATI) but hey.
Im seem to bring myself to think that Nvidia and ATI are making newer gpu's all the time, making them more and more complex, but only netting a couple fps over previous generations?
I think they need to invest more heavily into their drivers rather than their hardware... and work with OS/Game developers to bring us 100fps+ titles...
Its still not worth upgrading if you own a GTX285... it really isnt.
