[FS] 9800GTX+ Review with 4850 comparison - Page 3

post #21 of 30
It seems Anand's Crossfire results conflict with Guru3Ds. Anyone else see this?

No, I don't think that they are conflicting. Both sites said that they were having difficulty with Crossfire, particularly in Crysis. Their results are similar overall. Guru3D could not get Crossfire to work with Crysis at all. Probably a driver issue.

Awesome 9800GTX+>HD4850>9800GTX

The choices just get harder and harder!

TBH Crysis just sucks with scaling using Crossfire altogether. I swear they purposely coded it to run poorly on ATI hardware. All of my other games scale WAY better than Crysis.....it's really baffling.

I was just looking at the other review, the one where it said it was a geforce killer, and it shows that the 4850 is a lot better than the 9800gtx, whereas this one does not. Where does it really stand?

::sigh::

Nvidia is just trying to save face at the only price range it can actually compete with ati in (assuming the 4870 X2 will be cheaper and better than GTx280)

even then, why spend $30 for an overclocked 9800GTX that performs around the same as a 4850?

why not just get a 4850 and oc it a bit? it would be cheaper AND give users more performance.

The 8800 GTX is a real beast, that's for sure, and seeing as it is a 3-year-old GPU, it has the same feel to it as the 6800 GT AGP did back in 2002. A real performer with some serious power.

It does have stiff competition though. I had an 8800 GTS 512 after owning a GTX, and I have to say that the GTS 512 sure made my old GTX sweat. Real close in comparison when using 1680x1050.

Then when I had a 9800 GX2, it was a definite step above my GTX and GTS 512 that I had. Sure, the GX2 uses 2 GPU's to accomplish this, but as a single card solution, it rocked.

I then had to sell my GX2 and ended up getting a 9600 GT. I have to say that for the very low price, it performs exceedingly well, overclocks like a monster (770/2150), and is very cool and very quiet (can't hear it at all with fan at 100%) and with the fan turned up, it never passes 52c when fully overclocked. For only what, $140? Excellent.

Now that the GTX 280 is in the picture, according to some good reviews even with immature drivers, it is giving the GX2 a run for its money. In doing this, the GX2 has dropped in price and is hanging at a very sexy $450. The GTX 280 is a single GPU giving a dual-GPU card a hard time. Once the prices drop even further because of competition, we should be seeing the GX2 at $400 and the GTX 280 below $600. It's nice to see flagships go below $600 in their first 6 months (unlike the 8800 GTX and Ultra). I would love to get my hands on a GTX 280, or maybe a GX2 again.



800 stream processors and GDDR5 and yet it still won't beat the GX2 or GTX 280.

THe 4870X2 was meant to compete with the GTX280 (or two 4870s)......judging by the results of the 4850 that shouldn't be too hard.
Even the $200 4850 was nipping at the heels of the GTX280 in the other reviews (not this obviously flawed review), so 2 4870s should readily beat the GTX280.
After all you're comparing price, and the cheapest 280 is $639 at newegg, which is more than 2 4870s (supposedly) will cost.
The GTX280 is a fast card......but it's nowhere near worth the $640+ price tag.....

So, again you failed to prove that the firingsquad review is wrong


EDIT: Here is a new review for 9800GTX+ that shows similar results

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/731/17/

9800GTX+ outperformed HD4850 in 5 games out of the 7 tested

9800GTX+ use 55nm process instead of 65nm. So, it is just an OC card as you claim

In addition, they were comparing at stock 9800GTX+ vs stock HD4850. So, this was a fair comparison
