I believe 32 pipes when I see that reported by ATI.
Which, I think ATi would've reported by now to get people to quit buying GTXs if it were true, dont you? Instead theyre keeping use in the dark hoping we'll wait cause their card's about the same at best.
HKEPC rewiew in english
It says that this "monster" has 16pipes.
Well, the site's reassurance of 32 and 24 pipe cards is laughable, they have 10 after 3 respins but another is gonna give them 10,000? Pfft
wtf no agp i will need very good mobo for pentium m and pci
not only do they have pipe issues,but it seems some of the share holders aren't none too happy about all this waiting.
quote from the register:"who knows how accurate they are"!
Two weeks ago a number of law firms announced class action lawsuits against ATI filed with the US District Court of Eastern Pennsylvania on behalf of shareholders who held stock between 7 October 2004 and 23 June 2005. The lawsuits allege ATI and its officers provided false statements which inflated the market price of the company’s stock - classic 'safe harbour' stuff, we'd say.
looks as though there will be a 16 pipe version at first that will be clocked high enough to be competitive with the 7800, according to that article.
Fan is massive and looks super noisy x)
It's gotta be atleast 24 pipes since it's a dual slot card and longer than usual for ATI cards.
Where does logic come in in that sentence?
Same here, though I could find the card, it was usually $650+ and only from companies XYZ....
Though looking back, Im not sure if I could give up SM3.0, for some faster frames....
I just love FarCry with HDR so much.
Looks exactly like an ATi Silencer fan, which is very quiet.
I think they took NV5 and just stuck it on there since it fits prefectly, therefor its wont be like a vacum instead it should cool very nicely.
actually the card they have came with no cooling solution.
This time round, we did not receive the cooler from the card maker therefore we use our own cooling solution. At first, we thought that the R520 mounting holes will be similar to X850XT but it seems otherwise. In fact, it is similar to the GeForce 6800 Ultra so we employ a nVidia cooler to R520
Interesting, my eVGA 7800gtx makes almost no noise at all.
My eVGA 6800gt made more noise.
U express exactly what i think about video cards.
It should be more like $50-100.
Perhaps not that low, but you make a good point... VGA manufacturers have an absolutely massive profit margin on the products they sell, especially those on the high-end. Granted, you do have to take into account the cost of development, distribution, and all that costly business, but really, I do think it's getting a bit rediculous. The chips for the PS3 and Xbox 360 both cost around $100-120 for Sony and Microsoft respectfully. Now, granted, these are mass produced and they're guaranteed a whole lot of sales, but they're still amazing chips, built from the ground up, and they're selling them (at profit) pretty cheap. Tack on a PCB and all that fun stuff retail cards require, and the production costs still don't justify $600 for a 7800 GTX.
I doubt we'll see much of a decrease in the price of truly high-end graphics, but I don't think it'll get much higher. I expect mid-range will continue to remain below $200-220 as well. Then again, I'm no market analysist, that's just my opinion...
The price for high end cards have been rising every year slightly, and its like gas prices; i see no end in sight.
They put the high price on such cards becuase they know people like us will buy them on its initial release...
It makes you wonder when such companys like ATI release a X800 XL and put a 150 price tag on it. Their isnt any much diffrence in design to that of a higher range card (Apart from chip)..
But I can understand the ground work gone in to such cards and some one has to pay for it, like large companies if you want them to improve design and technology you got to get your money from some where..
