8600GT 256MB vs. 1950Pro 512MB - Page 5

post #41 of 64
how much are you getting the 1950pro for though?
if it is near 170 might as well get the saphire x1950xt http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102067.
sure it is only 256mb of ram but it's faster then the pro, faster then the 8600, and faster then the 7950

Perhaps what people mean is that the 8600gt in comparison with the 8800 series cards is synonymous with what the 7600gt (or gs) was in comparison with the 7800/7900 series cards. But the 8600 is nothing like the 7600 in performance, so saying that it is basically just a DX10 version of a 7600 has no basis.

but an 8600GT blows a 7600GT out of the water - it's shaders are also different.

You can't compare cards on specs

8600GT XXX Review
In this review the X1950Pro wins by a mile. Bearing in mind the 8600GT in this review is a pre-overclocked one.

It should blow it away with 20 more shader's. I'm agreeing with you.

I pointed this out earlier, but did not have time to post any reviews. Anandtec's review, on the 8600's showed similar results, with the 7600gt actually pulling ahead of the 8600 in game. Although, drivers have really been to blame, now that Nvidia is starting to correct this, we are starting to see different results popping up.

I could find NO information that supported your claim of having actuall shader pipelines. Rather the cards have the ability to utilize different units inside of them as shaders if needed. There is no 'pipe-lines' per say, performance cannot be judged from this number as it really doesnt exist w/ the 8xxx series.

First heres the link to read up yourself: See Here

Attachment 49061 Attachment 49060

Attachment 49062

While it is still ahead...its not by much, and these are pre-OC'd 8600's....The margin actually gets closer the higher the resolution goes. So yes, based on this and many other reviews, I would say the 7600gt is capable of performing on-par, if not better than a 8600. If all you care about is your 3dMark score, then you should probably stay with the 8xxx series cards though.

Instead of shader's lets say Pixel Pipelines (32 vs 12)
post #49 of 64
well i would say that if u like the x1950pro then you will show benchmarks of that card beating the 8600 but if u like the 8600 then it will be the oposite! as for been and owner of x1950pro and 8600gts i think that they both are fast cards.
