I just can't wait for some competition so prices will start coming down.
same here would love to get the 5870 but price is too high
as soon as nvidia puts out there card ati will probably lower the price down.
right now they could have there price high becuase they where the only dx11 card out there and people would pay the price to have it.
but now nvidia is coming out with one. it will be lower to compete
Exactly, and I'm sure it is more than 10% what is a stock 5870? 820? more like 25-30% I wont even mention the 5970. Fermi.. WHAT? If the remours about heat turn out true they are going to be bad clockers. Just overclock your ATI cards (liek we all do anyhow) and forget about gen1 fermi. lol
yeah its more than 10% overclock in general, like for example my cards are stock at 725/1000, and quite happy at 1000/1200 which is like a 38% clock speed increase - with stock cooling.
5870's run at 850/1200 - most are overclocked to 1000+/1250-1300
These cause issues with openGL games like doom 3 making flashing textures a blinking huds. I sure other openGL games will have somewhat issues that I saw as well.
Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast crashes on start.
Apparently GLView has support for testing the new OpenGL 4.0 rendering ...
I'll wait for some WHQL drivers with support these break my Uni project :bang:
Found out its because GLEW isnt updated yet, so it would work if GLEW gets updated.
So these drivers really improve performance considerably ? 40% improvement in Metro ? Can anyone else confirm these results ?
Quakelive has texture / lighting problems with this driver and Quake 1 still has terrible performance. I didn't notice any performance increase in metro, but I'm probably held back by CPU too much.
Quake 1 & 2 crash straight away, half life seems to stutter and at one part where you start a level in a lift wouldnt progress ie the lift wouldnt open lol
tho in return duke nukem no longer flickers
So apart from quake 1 and 2 and jedi knight 2 being completely unplayable and Doom 3 and half life having major issues these OpenGL drivers work well? :grin:
No idea why ATI released these if they are not working with any of the OpenGL games people still actually play.
Regarding DirectX Performance they are the same as the 10.3a.
Donkey, have you noticed any speed increases from other games ?
Always the same. People complain on a PREVIEW driver. There are no even beta, damn ppl.
NVIDIA ALREADY HAS A LIL OF NEWER OGL DRIVER 197.15
core features this from opengl extensions viewer
100% ogl 3.2 9/9
77% ogl 3.3 7/9
lil bit of 7% ogl 4.0 1/13
Aha.... emmmm, so?
nvidia forum is over there ---->
Yes Q2 crashes, but The Chronicles Of Riddick EFBB(2005 ver) works
It is beta version - and it's wrotten that is not full testeed.
in the Heaven Benchmark v2.0 in open gl mode i get a black screen but still with the option button's in the top left and logo etc , driver bug ?
cool gonna make you famous in the vault of fail tonight :thumbup:
