    ATi? I tried the X2. Here's some from the new Xbit review-

    "The new card won six out of the nineteen tests, at least at high resolutions...

    On the other hand, it was either equal to or slower than the single-chip ATI Radeon HD 3870 in seven out of the nineteen tests..."

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/ati-radeon-hd3870-x2_19.html#sect0

    Just like I've been saying from my experience with the X2; inconsistent, unpredictable and not a new champ.

    If the 9800s can beat a GTX @ 660|2040 1600 well I'll look at them, otherwise I'll pass.

    I'm waiting for the 4k series from ATi probably pick up a 4870 should destroy my current card.

    How so? There were huge differences in performance between them, notably the 5 to 6 series where the 6600gt spanked the 5800 Ultra so bad it was embarrassing. Less so the 6 to 7 series, but again the midrange 7600gt nipped the 6800 Ultra (albeit slightly). The 8 series seemed to have leveled off, its midrange, 8600gts couldnt touch a 7900GTX, although its top models were far more advanced than the preceding series.

    Nvidia did not even fix the stutter problem for 8800 users using XP.
    This problem is running for more than a year.

    I buying a 9 series ? .... off !:biggun:

    I,m going for ati, maybe less speed but running smoothly, also older games on XP !

    signed: A very disapointed customer off nvidia !:thumbdown

    There is no stutter with 8 series.

    alanm

    The Architecture of 5 6 7 are all the same. the 8 series Is the one that changed .....They are not going to change there design if it works....

    Hmm... Actually, I own an ASUS GeForce FX-5500 and it performs decently for the price.

    I can play F.E.A.R. @ 1280X1024 with low-medium settings and get 40+ FPS.

    I know that it's not hardly one of the best cards there is, or of its time. But, for $40, it was worth it!

    Also, I've overclocked it to 310 Core, 500 Memory. And it's 256MB. :pc1:


    Just to say.... :nerd:

    There is with mine.

    However i think in general the cards are probably ok, but whatever it is with us guys with stuttering 8800s it deffinateley exists.

    If i knew what it was i could elliminate it.

    My 8800gtx stutters, swap back for my x1800xt and no stutter.(lower frame rates of course).

    So its got to be an issue or compatibility problem with 8800s on certain setups that do not affect the ati chips.

    I bet it stutters in Crysis. ;)

    Probably Stalker and Flight Simulator too. ;)

    Not true because the 6 and 7 was a difference level. 7 series was how the 6 series will turn up but 6 series was rush. 7 series has better IQ and AF too when the 8 series has DX 10 and better IQ and its faster in DX 9 games. 9 series will be the same but with DX 10.1 and a over clock gpu and that about it.

    6 and 7 are the same just lower Nm.
    I believe even 5 4 3 2 are the same aswell

    8 is really the only different Architecture.

    That's all very sweet right there, how much is it going to cost, twice as much as the ultra ?

    Do you guys saw the processor this guy(willem) is using?A pentium d 2.66;if it's correct in his specs off course.There's no doubt his system will stutter like hell.

    G8x was the only NVIDIA design made "from the ground up" without using any previous design as a reference since the NV10. GeForce 2, 3, 4, FX were all architectures with 4 pixel pipes, high T&L output and lots of register combiner power. Hence they could all be called derivatives of the same architecture though it is well known that the FX series utilized a VLIW design for the shader pipe. GeForce 6 and 7 also were based on reference architectures from NV3x, they built upon the AA modes from the NV3x and redesigned the shader pipeline. So, one could say they were the same generation, but definitely not the "same architecture". :)

    As far as GeForce 9 is concerned, it looks decent enough and I think there was a little mess in the market due to which the situation is as it seems with the 9 series. In any case, the 9 series should not offer anything overly significant for 8 series owners (though performance gains might be a good thing, SLI owners probably won't need to worry about anything).

    Point is this.... Until ATI begins to put out some killer cards to compete with Nvidia, Nvidia has no real reason to step it up.

    They control the market now & until ATI steps it up, nvidia will soak up the market with less then stellar GPU's

    Its the nature of the beast...... Competition pushes technology......

    Doesn't sound like much to get excited over.

    I just bought an 8800GTS 512 so I doubt I'll ever see a 9800.

    Just doesn't sound like it's worth the money. The 8 series was a great leap for Nvidia, but the 9 is just a small step. I will stick I think with my GT for now.

    I completely disagree!

    The biggest jump for Nvidia was from 6 series to 7 or maybe 5 to 6.

    6800GT -> 7800GTX = huge gap
    FX5200 -> 6800GT = Big gap too.

    7900GTX -> 8800GTX = Big difference in perfomance but not even close to being the biggest one. Just take a look in to VGA Charts 2007 from tomshardware.com... I know ,its not the most accurate source but you will get the idea.
