7900GT & 7900GTX Details - Page 5

post #41 of 63
Doubtful because the 7900 is supposed to be a little bit more than the GTX pricing right now ($450 for the best) and $550 probably for a basic 7900GTX.

I would expect prices to drop to get rid of the old generation of card so the companies do not canabalize themselves with new technology

But 7800 series is so new! Would it be stupid to buy a 7800gt now since they are going to be discontinued, or when there prices drop when the 7900 series come out? Because I had my hopes up on getting one. And if I do, would that be bad? They will be cheap.

No, the prices won't go up. They'll drop because nobody will want them except those that still think SLI is worth it and already have a card. Don't be afraid to pick one up if you see a great deal, just don't spend a lot of money on this gen until we get a much better picture of what Vista/DX10 hold for us. The way it looks now, when DX10 is accepted, we'll all have to dump our old games and graphics cards and update.

Will you have to have a dx10 card to run vista or a dx10 game? Couldnt you just run it in dx9?

Wait cant you run older generation games in dx9? (Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun/Red Alert 2) That would be dumb if everyone who wanted vista and/or the new DX10 had to buy new GFX cards and new copies of games, because no one would do it who wasnt making boat loads of money.

Guys, the 7900s arnt going to be the new overlord GFX card. nVidia is probebly developing Geforce 8 series cards, which will have like a 32 pipeline Core, 512-bit 1GB RAM, and blazing fast clock speeds, WHICH WILL OWN THE ATI COMPITION CARDS.

Dell's new XPS Renagade Computer has QUAD SLI, which has 2GB of Vid Memory!! We know what nVidia can do, They are just developing a new generation of Geforce cards.

Just watch, when Vista comes out, nVidia & ATI will unveil their new GFX cards for the new OS, which will blow our minds when we see the specs.

Like the number and performance difference between the 6800GT and 7800GT, do you seriously think there will be a huge difference in one of the numbers in the name???

Anything lower than DX10 will be run with emulation. (not good) As far as the statement in all caps, despite you having 0 factual information on anything involving a next gen card, do you honestly feel either company will "OWN" the other? Look at every model down the line.....from the very top to the very bottom and ask yourself where the "ownage" is.

I hate these new cards, they get hotter and bigger and louder, I want a product that is small quiet and efficient! And are there any? No! You can get a lot of small quiet cards with passive heatsinks but then you have no performance because you got yourself an X1300 or a 7300! I'm really disappointed at all these 2 slot cooling solutions on current high-end technology. That is all.

Whoopdy freaking do on 2GB, but that person that jsut spend nearly $10K on that will have to dump it if they want Vista and DX10.

nVidia and Ati have probably been working on DX10 cards for some time now becasuse it is new tech and they do need to get the bugs out of it. Game developers are working on them as well. It's takes a little more than a couple months to bring out a new product. R&D can take years to complete. DX10 cards are out there but in the labs.

I have a feeling that ATI will be doing much better in the years to come by nailing a good one on the 1900 series and honestly can compete with nVidia which makes for great cards.

well yeah, the 2GB of vid memory does nothing performance wise, because we dont even have the mobos, CPUs, and most importantly the software to take advantage of that. ATI will come out with a awsome card one of these years, but right now their Dual card configuration is scetchy compared to nVidias SLI. With the Quad SLI though, we know what GFX card configurations can be produced. Remember back in the AGP days when we didnt have SLI or Crossfire? Ahh the good ol' days. Once games start being written for Dual Core CPUS and SLI Vid Card configurations, then we can make quad core stuff.


With SLI, the screen is split up for the cards, but in the future, like one card could do the Textures and effects and the other card could do geometery and shading (or something like that). You know like the actual game being split up and not just the screen.

This is the Infancy of dual anything, besides IDE stuff.

Well, the new G71 is only an upgrade to the G70. It's basically an upgrade to deal with the x1900xtx
