[nordicHW] High-end graphics card roundup

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
It is a typical review. I bring it up because it includes 3870, 3850 and 9600GT, which most reviews don't have.

Several of those tests show the 3870x2 going side by side with the 3870....doesn't seem right.

Looks like ATI is still heavily hit by AA/AF.

It's seeing results like this that leave me, less and less impressed with the 3870x2..

LOL. who cares if its eVGA in a graphics card roundup where they run it at stock speeds...I happen to know the 8800GT from MSI that they featured is amazing, as i own it...

So looking at that it can be concluded that the 9800GTX performs around the same or slightly better than the 8800 ultra.

Thats good considering new 9800GTX's are £223 for a good brand, and stock speed 8800 ultras are still going on eBay for £300+!!
