1 gb hd 2900xt is here! - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Was the amount of memory really what was bottlenecking the HD2900XT? It adding more memory boosts its performance to GTX levels, are we going to see 1 GB GTXs on the way too then?

I'm guessing the 2900XTX has more shaders, a higher clocked Core, and a higher clocked Memory? The 2900XT 1GB has GDDR4 Memory clocked at 1100MHz (a lot faster than a stock GTX).

It most likely will not have any more shaders. R600 is 320 stream processes, period.
However, the Shaders may be clocked higher, and the memory will probably be clocked higher as well.

I think not.

nVidia will probably go with the 9-Series and unvield 1GB+ of GDDR4 Memory at an unbelieve clock speed, paired with an amount of shaders that will handle Crysis without a problem.

This is 1GB GDDR4 and the regular XT is only 512MB of GDDR3 right?

I suspect the X2900XTX will feature 1GB GDDR4 / 65nm core / 320 + 16x stream processors.

I figure the 8900GTX will probably be a 1GB 512bit and 160-192 stream processors.

Correct, paul. And, there will be no 8900; skipping straight to 9-Series like they did with the 6-Series.

Seriously, I've always liked ATI and have owned 3 of their cards over the past few years, and they were/are all awesome in their own respects. In fact, my GTX is the first nVidia card I've ever owned.

I find it really sad that ATI hasn't come out with a true, labeled proudly, XTX Flagship model that made us choke on our tongues like when the X1950XTX, X1900XTX, and X1800XTX came out. When those cards came out, we knew ATI meant business and those cards performed as such. I really, really hope this isn't a sign of the future for ATI, and that the delays and performance disappointments as of recent won't be the beginning of the end.

I will buy ATI in the future if they continue on with their previous innovations, but right now I am left wondering what the heck is going on.

Just my

I bet the 2900 xtx will be just like the 8800 ultra... eg an overclocked 2900 xt, I've been routing for the r600 all this time but after all these disappointments I really wouldn't be surprised if that actually happened.

Not a bad assessment Choggs. But if you remember the X1800XT series was delayed similarly (but not nearly as much) to the 2900XT series so much so that the 1900 totally eclipsed it very very shortly afterward.
