ok, the 512mb 7800GTX is the Best GPU avalible (Besides any Quadro stuff or things like that that run at $4000 a peice) however, it costs $749 and the 512mb X1800XT costs $599. Now the 256mb 7800GTX does infact beat the 512mb X1800XT in F.E.A.R. and Doom 3, but the 512mb X1800XT win at Far Cry, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.

ATI X1800XT Crossfire won every benchmark over nVidia 7800GTX SLI in these tests.

We also ran standard scores (1024x768) for Aquamark 3, 3Dmark03, and 3Dmark05. Once again Crossfire X1800XT outperformed nVidia 7800GTX SLI in every benchmark.

We then ran all the same tests in single video mode, comparing a single X1800XT on the ATI RD580 to a single 7800GTX on the Asus A8N32-SLI. Benchmarks were run under the same conditions as Crossfire/SLI - 1600x1200/4xAA/8xAF in games and "standard" scores in 3Dmarks and Aquamark 3. Once again the ATI X1800XT on the RD580 was the winner in every benchmark. It is clear the new 5.11 drivers do make a difference in Open GL games like Quake 4 and Doom 3. Even more exciting, the RD580/X1800XT Crossfire will be a potent graphics combination.

There is no doubt that the nVidia 7800GTX 512MB, which everyone expected would launch 2 days ago as a 7800GTX Ultra, would likely win a head-to-head performance test as single or SLI when compared with the single X1800XT or Crossfire. However, ATI clearly believes the competitor for X1800XT is the $499 7800GTX and not the $700 7800GTX 512MB. ATI was quite clear they will be introducing a "PE version" of X1800XT to compete with 7800GTX 512.

Yea, RIGHT NOW, it's out preforming the nVidia card it was meant to outpreform.

But....


Let's use logic here, folks. Say ATi releases some super card, called the 2000XTE 512MB.... nVidia will just release something like an 8200GTX 512MB, made to barely outpreform the 2000XTE... that's whats going on. Realisticly, it doesn't matter because I'm sure the preformance differences are so little, you won't be able to notice a difference.

It's very true. I'm personally looking at buying the bfg 7800gtx oc 512mb version, which is probably going to be able to handle the best games for awhile, and I'll get a new video card, when the games start damanding more performance. That said, I say get what you need to run the games you want to play at the performance you want them to play at. it honestly doens't matter who owns the best card out there. Theres always going to be new cards comingout like lighting hitting a tree, so don't go crazy over everything.

Thats a very good point. They are both high end cards and you probably wont notice any difference between the two. Its like comparing a lambourghini and a ferrari lamborgini. Both awesome.

yeah. I like how they come up with these new really fast and expensive cards. Then the prices on the slower ones will drop. Right now the 6800GS is like $200 and it's a very good card.
