Your taking it pretty hard aren't you

Wow this thread is getting personal lol. So far GTX 295 looks good to me. I would love to see more benchmarks on this though. I'm not sure if I want to buy another GTX 260 216 or upgrade to this GTX 295. Since my P6T limits me to two cards anyways. Quad SLI might be my best option.

Just because your 4870X2 crossfire setup is facing some stiff competition, possibly losing to it, is no reason to cry. Get off your high horse. If the price is right, Nvidia's new card will be great!

Nvidia has to do more than just put two GTX 260's together to take back the crown. I won't be moving to GTX 295 I will hold off till the RV870's. We also know the pricing on Nvidia graphics card is never right just look at the GTX 280 initial launch price.

Thats right who really uses 3DMARK05, its really O6 and vantage we need to see, i was wondering why the cards exceeded 32k?
post #36 of 57
Let's all wait for the single pcb GTX 300 dual GPU . These new CPU's do nothing for gaming. The bottleneck is not on the CPU its on the GPU, and the GPU will perform up to par and specs if processor is dual core 2.4 period!!!
thx

Didnt ati also say that the 4000 series max shader count was going to be 480, and then it became 800.

How can you do well if you lose money?

At least they have innovation, how many times were nvidia cards rebadged? The last time nvidia had innovation was G80.

It's not that they have superior tech, it's that they have had very low prices with very similar tech. What happens when it comes back to substance and innovation? Sure, ATI/AMD is not short on innovation; but they have had a real tough time implementing it, and they always have. But hey, what do I know? I still have a Radeon 7500 from 2001 that never worked the way it was supposed to.

I would love one of them, although my board would allow two 4870X2 cards if I went with ATI.
Of course, I would prefer a single massive GPU if possible, so I would like to see how well the GTX285 turns out first. If the price is right, I might finally replace my 8800GTX (he will be promoted to Field Marshall of the Glorious Empire, and will be kept as a reserve).
