Ive been looking at the 8800GTS G92 and I don't know if I should wait for the nex gen or should I just go ahead and buy it?

oh, and I agree with you about waiting for 8 cores, I'll probably be doing that too
not a furry. not topless. and anime girls always look younger than they are.

Proof

See under "Cores"? Only the "MP Server" processor, codenamed Beckton, has 8 cores. I believe this is the new edition of their Itanium processor, which is only used in very high-end servers. The rest all have 4 cores or less. The sad thing is that all the new server, desktop, and mobile chips are collectively referred to as "Nehalem", so many people get confused and think that the octo-core is a Desktop processor, when it is not.

It's sad, but true. Desktops just simply don't need more than 4 cores right now.

Heck, I probably don't even need a Quad core, but who cares about what I "need". I still want as many cores as possible!
aww crap... still no more than just 4 cores then...

Err back on topic, I wasn't expecting something massive with the 9800 and the 9900 series. It's probable that nVidia has hit a wall in one of their R&D projects and this has delayed the true next generation card. Anything is better than the 3dfx approach. . . .

No, they pulled an AMD, Said "Hahaha, They haven't got any way of catching us now!" and are only releasing the 9x00's before the HD4xx0's, because the 9x00's are Just the old 8800's with a new cooler,, a new core revision, or another PCB, at least, at the moment.

This is why I went red, and haven't gone back.

This is largely incorrect. Just becomes things become obsolete fast in the PC world doesn't make at least attempting to future proof a bad idea.

Two GREAT cards that have held up VERY WELL are the 8800GTX - people who bought it 16 months ago still have one of the fastest cards on the market and the 8800GT, which for $226 on opening day in October 07 (I bought mine before the price gouging started) is still comparable to a modern 9800GTX (with the exception of 12 less SPs).

On the other hand, certain cards have had abysmal lives. The 7900 GX2 was so bad it was only sold to the public for about 8 weeks. The 8600GTS was obsolete and overpriced as soon as it was sold to the public.

My point is simply that if you are going to be laying down some big money for hardware, it does pay to understand when a new "generation" of hardware will be available, and buy it when it is. THat's the only real way to maximize long-term value with PC hardware.

I love reading all the 'Im gonna get 9950GTX Ultra with 8ghz quad nehalem and the new ddr4 in november' posts.
post #67 of 67
I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to see the replacement for the 8800Ultra.

If the 9900Ultra follows the same path as the 8800Ultra, it should be king for an entire year.
