Crossfire is actually more effective (faster) than SLI, due to how certain things are done differently in processing..
True, but since only a FEW are going CF, ATi are doomd once again (i mean doomd in the dx10 fight).

the 2900XTX is supposed to be the most futureproof, once it comes out

On the contrary, I'm thinking a decision to wait until the r650 couldn't get better. I really thought that ATi had this one in the bag, and then they underwhelmed everybody. The x2950 might be a nvidia killer, but now I'm not expecting that to be the case.

Side note- havn't the benchmarks been showing that ATi got beat out in DX9 scores on this game too?

I still think we need to give drivers a chance, the drivers that are out now suck for both cards!!
Version 158.24 & beta 158.48 still don't support Nvidia SLI antialiasing, I'm sure that will make a differance in FPS when it's finely fixed.

One thing about those benchmarks. The 2900XT does not compete in terms of price against the GTX or the Ultra. However it does compete in price against the GTS and GTS 320. This review isn't really comparing apples to apples. I noticed they didn't bother to bench a GTS 320. I think that Legitreviews is a bogus site that caters to nVidia.

Now that's the type of logical thinking that has no place here at OCN.

PS - Yes, I couldnt agree more.

True but one can't start to lose faith after a card that has been delayed again and again over 6 months, can't match the competitor's flagship model with its own flagship model despite the extra time they've had to work on the card, and now this....

I really do feal sad for ATI/AMD they might actually go out of buisness

Nvidea needs competition. Sadly ATI has everything riding on this card. The next thing that's coming up for them is Barcellona but that's a bit to far away.


the X2900

1.You could heat your house with it

2.Massive power consumption

3.LONG



Now good parts

1. Dead Sexi

2. a BIT cheaper
