I decided to just give up on AMD. I waited about 7 months and still no HD2900XTX. I'm just going to go with an 8800GTX and step up to an 8900GTX or something. I'm so mad at AMD.......

lol you guys are way too fatalistic... everyone is crying and saying "R.I.P. R600" and "zOMG AMD is dead" the very limited benchmarks that have been released dont show anything about the r600... all the tests have been done in DX9 and keep in mind, those were beta drivers, (anyone remember Nvidias 8800 beta drivers??) and the tests that they ran were only using about 2-3 of the r600s 5 shader ops/cycle... which im almost positive dx10 will fix...


I think you'll all be sorry when they come out with some real dx10 benchmarks for the r600, and you see that the r600 beats the 8800 in all the games you bought your dx10 card for.... e.g. Crysis.

And an 8800GTX won't be able to play Crysis....? I don't know about you, but I waited out the 8800GTX craze in hopes of getting an HD2900XTX. After waiting what seemed like years, I have finally give up hope for AMD. I just don't care for the HD2900XTX any more.

And wait for another 3 months for the HD2900XTX to be delayed? By the time I build my rig, I would have graduated college. I'm certain AMD is going to just scrap the HD2900XTX. Either that or they release a POS.

And how are you so certain that the 8800GTX will not perform on par or better than the r600 in dx10? There are no dx10 benchmarks so I don't know how you came to that conclusion.

As for the "beta" drivers, dx10 alone will not fix the shader ops/cycle problem that the r600 has. Only game developers will be able to take full advantage of the r600's architecture, and this can only be done if they coded their games SPECIFICALLY for the r600 architecture. And if they do this, their games will run like crap on any other card except for the r600's so I doubt that they will take that chance.

By the time the HD2900XTX comes out, Nvidia will whip out their 8900GTX and destroy AMD once and for all. Not to mention Intel has AMD pinned to the floor.

Exactly. AMD/ATI made a bad decision by delaying the r600 for so long and this will hurt them even more when nvidia releases their next gen dx10 cards.

wait 13 days and then I guess we can see for real. From what it seems the XTX is pretty much going to be an XT with maybe a little higher clocks and GDDR4 memory. the xt should prove to be a pretty nice card
