That just reinforces my decision to buy a 6800 Ultra.
Doooon't think that its official
Probably not, but I bet the fanATIcs and nVidiots will be in here soon flaming each other. It should be entertaining for at least a little while.
Its all true tho, official or not
who would go in all that trouble to fake that?
its official alright. taken from a press release this morning. Press release had that powerpoint and that 6800's are shipping. check the front page for the news item
well on the Anisotropic filtering bits, its the way they do the filtering,
they do partial filtering and they say, not all surfaces need the same amount of filtering depend on light hit, refraction and the angle of the plane
(plane as in surface)
Sweet. The information is true after all.
lol man .. thats true
its all true, cause i actually read alot up on both cards
ATI wasn't quite expecting NV to get PS3.0 out so fast, they were expecting it with the NV50.....
once all the rumours started flying it was too late to change the cards specs
lol jesus so does this mean nvidia took the lead in this next generation lol
edit: oh btw in the Ati forums they say the x800 is being sold for about 400
yeah it did.....
theres no use benchmarking the 6800 vs the X800 since its 2 different generations of hardware....
the XI800's will be the real competitors
I was unsure at first regarding which card to get : x800xt platinum or Gainward's 6800 U Cool FX.
When i'm spending silly amounts of money (which it is !), i'd rather spend it on new tech. I ordered the 6800 u 2 weeks ago and i'm sure glad i did.
And the speeds on the core and memory on this card are right up there with the best XT, not to mention the 'NEW' and superior technology, which if you do a little research, you'll discover how much there actually is.
the only new and supperior tech is in the 6800,
cause its the only card offering a totally new core design,
ati will try and tell you the X800 is a new design, but all it is is a modification with some new features
if you think about it.. it makes sense... I HAVE seen the differently clocked X800 XTs
this is making even more sense now lol, thats why the difference in power supply and the molex
what do you mean TheForce?
6800 requires more power than the x800 and has 2 connectors while x800 has only 1
Worried about v3.0 PS and VS when the number of PS2.0 requiring games out at the mo can still be counted with the fingers on both hands...
