Yea, but isnt' ATI teaming up w/ AMD still? If they are, I'd expect ATI to make the move within the next year and a half or so.... AMD already has the technology..... (or am i wrong about the ATI/AMD thing happening?)

No, it has happened already. But dont expect AMD to instantly pour hundreds of millions of dollars of capital into ATIs processes. rabidgnome brought up an excellent point in stating that GPU manufacturers are really pushing the speed without changing the fundmental architecture of the chips to make the process more efficiently.

I think we may see this change in the near future after Dx10's release and the adoption of unified shader architecture, but I also stand behind my previous statement in saying that the leaps the GPUs have made in such a short time span illustrate the fast pace of the industy and the reason for ever increasing power and cooling requirements. Aside from C2D, there hasn't REALLY been a huge leap in CPU architecture for a few years. Smacking another core onto the same die has been successful, but I dont think it really touches the jump that GPUs make almost every 6 months.

I think ATI and nVidia have shares with electricity suppliers, make a card hog more electricity/watt's = good profit in the back pocket

conspiracy's i tell ya!

Is PCI-Express a dead tecnology already?
I mean , they must think we are thiefs or something, and that everybody has money to grab anew mobo like *that*!
If new standard comes out and the new gpu's don't fit in the regular PCI-Express slots i'm saiyng goodbye to DX10 and vista!!!!!!!!!!

There was 3 versions of PCI and 2 of AGP. Its not dead, just being revised.

Funny thing is that theyre revising it to meet power requirements instead of bandwidth requirements.

Why would they? The bandwith we have isn't being fully used yet.


It looks like a simply change in the specifications for power, not the actual slot....also, I would be amazed if this required a new PSU. The connector may change, but then you will just have to buy an adapter to change from a PCI-e 6 pin to whatever this is now......kind of like you can use a 4pin molex with an adapter to power the current 6pin PCI-e.....or a 4pin molex to a SATA power plug........of course, there will be new PSUs with native connectors.


Does seem like an aweful lot of juice for a single card though.......

They may be coming, but it doesnt mean you have to buy them lol . Personally, its really just spiraling out of control. HOPEFULLY, the power requirement RUMORS are just that. There WILL be a turning point in performance per watt, it just wont be anywhere in the next few months.
