And yes, gentlemen, there is a difference between 48 pixel pipelines and 48 pixel shaders.
Theres a thread about it somewhere in the forums.

I'd hardly qualify that as proof. And it's just like how they said the R520 had been in developmental production for three year previous to its release, that doesn't automatically mean it'll be done early

can some familiar with GPU architecture clear up what pixel shaders are? from the name i gather that they don't actually render the pixels, but ummm "shade" them? so how would cramming 48 pixel shaders benefit a chip compared to say like 16 shaders...

I dont know, unless I see a lot of product rolling off the line, im gonna stick with getting a DX10 card. I mean, if i cant get one right when they come out, and i can only get one 2 months before DX10 comes out, whats the use?

Because DX10 is only for Vista and no one in there right mind would buy Vista

I believe pixel shaders have to do with AA and AF

That's the thing about graphics processors... they're so immensly complicated that it's difficult to understand just exactly how they work... In the most basic sense of my understanding, a pixel pipeline is the mathematical rendering engine that takes the inputs of a three-dimensional image from the game engine and draws it as a two-dimensional image on your computer monitor. The pixel shader is the part of the pixel pipeline that draws color on the pixel to make it look like what it should as part of the whole. The pixel pipeline itself is composed of about eight different parts... so it's a bit difficult to understand (and even more difficult to explain)

Therefore GPU engineers > CPU engineers lol jus kiddin, im no fanboy. something tells me the x1900xt isn't going to be cheap..., just something... a magical intuition

Hopefully since theyve had experience with the X1800 they can make it for a lower cost.
