Well I've called this thread just to get some opinions on which would perform better in ur opinion. This wont be friendly thread. So please dont flame
. Anyways, iam in edge of buying new vid card, either ATI top vid card or Nvidias top vid card and of course i would go with the one that performs more and has a good drivers and lower price!

( 7900GTX SPECS)

PCIe native
655MHz core frequency
256-bit memory interface
52GB/sec. memory bandwidth
15B pixels/sec. fill rate
1450M vertices/sec.
24 pixels per cycle
Built in twin dual-link DVI support for twin 2560x1600 resolution displays



( x1900xtx SPECS)

RADEONâ„¢ X1900 XTX core (650MHz)
512MB GDDR3 onboard memory (1550MHz)
48 pixel shader processors
256-bit Memory Bus
PCI Express x16
Pixel Shader Version 3.0
Video Acceleration of: MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9, VC-1, and H.264
Dual DVI
Video-In and Video-Out
2 Sapphire Select Unlock keys



I wouldn´t declare a winner just yet they might have still something hidden what we don´t know. Aaah, the war will keep on going. So lets debate or discuss ur knowledge and ur opinion of what u think would OWN
.

Thank you.

i think the X1900XTX is still the best... 7900 Series is just another way to make people to buy another card... to upgrade... well if you already wanted to upgrade to a 7800GTX go and upgrade to a 7900GTX... cheap like hell!!! 499$ for a Geforce 7900GTX 512MB...
but you cant say its better then a 7800GTX... almost the same...

^^Wrong. The 7900GT is the same as the GTX, the 7900GTX is well beyond it. Faster than the 7800GTX 512, which the X1900XTX beats only by a slim margian. I'm waiting until I see official benchmarks, but for right now I'm saying it's LIKELY the 7900GTX will win.

Finally admitting that the 7900 series exists, eh kitt3?

Edit: And that's a picture of the 7800GTX512... I'm pretty sure we haven't seen any pics of the 7900.

yeah i did some searching, but x1900xtx got 48 pixel shader processors. On the other hand, 7900GTX got 24. Well these days performence is based on shaders not on pipes, correct me if iam wrong!!

ps: This picture is used in this link confirming that this is the 7900gtx

the 7900GT is nothing like the 7800GTX... just look at the specs... sure... its stronger then a 7800GT but dont think that stronger then a 7800GTX... and i saw some 7800GTX 512MB that had factory oc with better speeds then the 7900GTX... so cool down sweety...

Shaders are more important only in games with complex lighting. However, in simpler-lighted games like Guild Wars, and most other MMORPGs, raw power wins.
Plus, consider cost and dual-card systems. The 7800GTX 512 is still king when it comes to dual cards, since the X1900 Crossfire master card is slower than the X1900XTX. The 7900GTX 512 seems to be better than the 7800 card, so it's looking like it's going to stay on top. Plus, the 7900GTX is estimated at what, about $500? The XTX is $630 at NewEgg. So even if the X1900XTX does beat it, I'm sure the price difference won't be justifiable for the tiny bit of performance.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize one couldn't re-state information without getting insulted. We're discussing video cards, not having an argument.

And I'd say the 7900GTX is substantialy different than the 7800GTX.
http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=1121

According to that, the 7900GT is only slightly slower than the 7800GTX 512, and the 7900GTX is quite a bit better.

the solution is getting 2 7800GTX, 1 7900GTX, 1 X1900XTX...
one 7800GTX will be OC'd and we will compare:
7800GTX - 7900GTX
7800GTX OC - 7900GTX
7800GTX - X1900XTX
7800GTX OC - X1900XTX
7900GTX - X1900XTX
the results will be the only fact!
i say that the 7900GTX will be a bit stronger then the 7800GTX and the 7800GTX OC will be identical!
and non of them will over power the X1900XTX...

Even if the X1900 does beat the 7900GTX, I think we'll all agree that the 7900s will help lower prices, since the performance will be so close, but the price will be so different. Hopefully, it will drive down ATi's prices too.

x1900xt of course. 7900 isn't really a notable upgrade for nvidia. They can't beat the pixels shaders of the x1900xtx--perfect for Elder scrolls Oblivion due out this month

Omri, it has been stated in many threads before this that the 7900gt will perform on the same level as the 7800gtx 256, it has the same number of pipelines and only a slightly higher core clock, but the difference is it will be 350 dollars, the same price 7800gt are going for. reportedly the GTX version will have 32 pixel pipelines and a core speed of about 650, so it should pwn the x1900xtx. Also, even if neither one beats the 1900 at stock, they're 90nm chips, and so they will OC like hell. 7900 all the way
