Any new chipset in near future?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
First, I wanna say, that if this has been posted before, I'm sorry.

Second, is nVidia going to release a new chip to challenge the X1900XTX just yet? Like an 8XXX series? I would really like to see the benchmarks of that kind of card. Maybe with 512mb-1gb of VRAM... That would be so freakin awesome!

There have to be some leaks. From inside or outside sources, I don't really care. As long as it's confirmed, I think alot of us will be anticipating a new series from nVidia.

I dont think we will be seeing anything until Q4 2006 or later. Since the new cards will be introducing DX10, it will probably be closer to the release of vista

Does the 7900GTX not challenge the X1900XTX?? I beleive the benchmarks are relatively the same, either card takes the crown in certain areas so there is a card out already that challenges it.

The 8 series and next gen R600 chip aren't slated to be out until Windows Vista comes out because both cards will be using DX10 and since DX10 is not backward compatible (only through emulation) they will not be releasing it early unless the emulation is damn good

Darn... let's wait for Vista then!! Haha. Would it be possible for the cards to be backwards compatiblefor older systems? Seeing as they are not for Vista.

Vista can be run in a DX9 mode so the current cards will be able to run Vista, you jsut won't get AeroGlass and all the DX10 features in video games.

DX9 cards are backwards compatible for DX8 and lower, DX10 will be ther first graphics interface that will not be backwards compatible, why I have no clue or I read it and forgot

only at higher resolutions with AA and AF jacked up which most users run their resolutions at 1024x768 or 1280x1024 and at those resolutions the 7900GTX is better in some cases and the x1900XTX is better in some cases, they're pretty much even

but to say that there is no chip out there now to challenge the x1900XTX is ludicrous
