    NVIDIA GF100 Fermi Technology preview Last week we arrived at Sin City not only to cover CES but there was something else going on as well. In Las Vegas NVIDIA had organized a briefing for a select...

    lmao I love how they even addressed the stupid rumors in the vegas conference. (In your face you charlie demerjian fans/retards!)

    Way to go nvidia! I can't wait till GF100 hits retail on March. A GF100 will go nicely with my new system.

    Finally something concrete!

    70% increase over the 285 in FC2, not to shabby. Still gonna have trouble competing with ATI's 6870 later this year but it's nice to see that the competition is still on.

    Looks great ... now people except Bodar ... time to sell ur arm and a leg and we can all enjoy this new NVIDIA tech =P.

    In all honesty, it's going to be expensive but I guess it's worth it looking at this preview. NVIDIA seems to have it going but only if it can get it to the market instead of a paper launch like last year's big flop announcement.

    Also, I'm guessing AMD's official response to this should focus on more ROPs, which is lacking. They're getting the message but NVIDIA's been punching them in the face due to the lack of ROPs in their previous generations. The Radeon HD 5000 series sees this being corrected. Also, I guess AMD also needs to transition from SIMD to MIMD for the Radeon HD 6000. One thing that we're assured is that AMD stated that the Radeon HD 6000 like the Bulldozer CPUs are designed from ground up and not just an improvement upon the previous generation which AMD has been doing since the Radeon HD 2000 series came out.

    Now to save up cash for the Radeon HD 6000 series (have decided to skip the 5000 series).

    how much faster do you expect Fermi to be compared to my 5970?

    probably 1.5x-2x at max faster on GPGPU loads and not necessarily in game performance imo.

    i think it will be slower on titles that work with crossfire
    it will be faster than a single 5870 but i doubt the 5970

    5970 is a dual GPU card, you'll have to wait for the dual gpu fermi to come out to get something faster. However, once games use more tessellation etc, the Fermi could end up faster it's just that until these features get used the 5970 is faster than the single Fermi. Upside is the min fps on the fermi was sick.

    Oh i wish i had the time to read all these tech demo articles. Looks like Nvidia went all in this time, lest hope their not bluffing, i like good competition. Well the next question on my mind is how much will this beast cost?

    i got rid of my GTX275 OCX last week for a somewhat acceptable price and im awaiting FERMI with open arms ... im aiming mainly the dual GPU solution :D

    so the small fps chart there is from nvidia tells us its bit faster then 5870 (1.6x on average) and from that id see slower then 5970 yeah well thats nice. i wan't to see refresh from ati when fermi comes too :p and later this year new architecture from ati woo nice year.

    Seems like a good difference, alright. However, it falls short behind the 5970 by a few fps if you look at http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5970-review-test/14 . Then again there might be a performance increase once official drivers are released.

    So if the GF100 that was benched is their highest-end gaming card, it's safe to say that it'll compete evenly with Ati's 5970. So a dual-GF100 will definitely win by a good enough margin (as long as SLI-performance scales well)

    EDIT: wait, just realized it was tested at Ultra while the Guru3d review as just at Very High. Still, the comparison can be used as the GTX 285 in Hilbert's review also scored an average FPS of 50fps
