    For this reason, it's better to get rid of them before the launch, if you are planning to upgrade

    Re: 1680x1050 How much to spend?

    A 560Ti or a non-overclocked 570 would be my pick. These cards can barely handle heavy games like Crysis or Metro 2033 at 1680x1050 with all settings max and a 4xAA. With the direction developers...

    Re: 1 gig video ram useful--next year or two??

    It will depend on when (and if) game developers start making use of it. 512 RAM offered no advantage to 256 until mid 2006. Since the it became a must-have for mainstream and high end cards

    Re: gpu voltages

    There is no standard for this. The default voltage of a GPU or CPU is decided by the developer according to many factors like yields, power consumption, cooling, performance, competition, estimated...

    Re: 8800gt --> 9800gt

    If this happens, it should take some time. 8800GT will be alive as long as the G92 is in production, as it is the only card that NVIDIA can make use of G92 chips with 1 defective shader unit

    The last time he had an ATI card back in the Radeon 9700/9800 times, he didn't stop criticising them untill he moved to NV40, and he wasn't alone.

    Re: HD 4870X2 Preview / Reviews

    Nice in general. Nice pictures of the card, nice performance graphs. What I'd like to see is more Crysis benchmarks (no tests with AA on and no tests with very high detail either) and a more taxing...

    Re: Some GT200 info...

    They used GPU-Z 0.2.1 that doesn't recognise the GT200. Why didn't they use 0.2.3 that does, is a good question. Maybe by the time these were done 0.2.3 version was not available. These scores appear...

  11. Re: ATi 4870 offically! faster the NV GTX280.. and ATi's pHysics.. its havok.

    4870 won't be faster than the GTX 280. If something manages to beat the 280 it will only be the 4870x2 card and only if ATI makes a driver that makes the most of it.

    The GTX 280 is not far from...

    That flash is one of the safest. All it did change is the VGPU, the clock speeds and the fan control. Had done it and worked awesome, with some minor memory underclocking afterwards.

    Inquirer has nothing but bad words for NV the past years; they are far from the credible site they used to be.

    The clock speeds they report don't seem to be any kind of a "massive miss". The 576...

    Good cards for the price are the 9600GT and 8800GT (512 RAM) from NVIDIA. The 3850 and 3870 from ATI are a bit slower, but still do very well.

    Don't even think about any 8600 or lower NVIDIA...
