That's a pity, I liked the old comparisons. They were much more informative
Hmmm...bit confused. Thought/hoped that the R600 totaly owned the market.
lol. i think the af differences have been just a little overstated... i stared at that wall in the oblivion bridge screen for ages and couldn't see any difference.
I totally hear you and believe me if there was time for me to literally shut myself away for a week these days, I'd do it. With my new role though, I can't.
Very nice article, as always
bit tech always manages to write articles that make sense
And on page 13, damn i wish those pics were mine
A quick note though, is anyone else getting this problem ?
I put a line through the middle of each bar to show what i mean
each time it goes down a row it adds slightly more space then the bars do, so each label moves further and further away from its bars, if there are enough items they eventually end up with labels next to the wrong bars ....
That bit always amuses me. People demand "apples to apples" comparisons when all they actually ever eat are "oranges"...
Please force refresh the pages, I did some css updates this morning that you might not have.
Have you done a CTRL+F5? We had to update the CSS earlier (to fix a conflict that resulted in this 'problem'), but as far as I'm aware the problem should be fixed on all browsers. Which browser are you using?
forced a refresh and now its fine (although i did have to force the reset to fix it, i checked before i refreshed and it wasnt fixed)
I'm using FireFox, although that doesn't matter much now thanks for the rapid response
Cool, glad that fixed it
Tim, when are the XTX's coming round for a little B-T review?
what would you guys recommend (classes, books) that would help a noob like myself better understand all the architecture stuff?
anyway, amazing how different this review is compared to others. just goes to show i made the right choice in making this site my "home". excellent review. not trying to be a brown nose here at all, but damn tim, this was worth the wait. other than 2 games, the 640 mb gts won or held on, and the 320 mb card held its own. im dumbfounded. even more confusing is that someone would post this...
what in that review made you decide this was the card to go with? is there something i am totally missing in the architecture stuff? or are you assuming that this card will drop in price and the nvidea cards will hold steady, thereby making this a better buy? and you don't pay your electricity bill? from what ive seen, the gts is definitely the way to go, and unless you play Prey or Quake ONLY, you might save money and grab the 320...
when AMD releases one (hint: maybe never)
Still waiting to c how R600 mid range does...after being less than impressed with 8600 cards....looks like a 320mb 8800GTS is still the best bang for buck way to go for now.
Wow. Tim, so does that mean that the XT is AMD's only anwser until R650?
If that was true Tim then wait a minute... Won't nVidia release the successor to G80 (read: G90) around the same time AMD will release R650 (if rumours are to be believed)? And will R650 be a complete new architecture or 'just' a re-design? (same question goes for G90)
I wouldn't count on that... the guys at hardocp.com said they were able to burn out a 750watt PSU running two of these things in CF
2x R600, X6800, 2 GB RAM, HDD ~ 500+ W right?
What did they use? I can see 2 possibilities here
Surely its more than 500W. Must be close to the 850W of the GTX/Ultra in SLi.
Take a look here:
Or for the lazy ones:
Yea, too lazy to photoshop/paint it.
