Default Radeon 2XXX Series Info

From Gamespot:
http://www.gamespot.com/features/6170621/index.html

Looks like some decent prices actually...can't wait to see benchmarks of the 8800GTX vs the final version of the 2900XT. Looks like as of now the 8800GTX is winning.

They recommend at least a 550 watt PSU for a single card, not too bad...

Well, they're both the top end cards of nVidia and ATI, so I think it'll be interesting to see the difference in performance.

What I've heard so far regarding ATI cards is that the drivers still aren't very compatible so I don't know when reliable benchmarks will be released. So far the Radeon HD gets odd scenarios like more FPS on higher resolutions, everything is a bit odd with that card right now. I'm pleased with the pricing of it though. I'm hoping nvidia will consider revising their own prices now.

wow... does that thing need both the 6-pin and the 8-pin power??? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161091

one edge it does have though is the 24x AA

Thats cool, i didn't think a 6-pin would work in the 8-pin untill i looked closer. Could that thing run off of one 8-pin?

Basically the X2900 XT offers 8800 GTX performance for the price of the GTS. You can even get 1000/1000 on it, but that's with rather extreme cooling, but that's still a very notable accomplishment considering both ATI and AMD were the first companies to crack the 1Ghz mark in their respective markets.

No it doesnt its in the GTS range some benches 2900XT wins some the GTS wins, still the 8800GTX beats it, its not even compared to the ultra. Its 430 at newegg when the GTS 640 is at the lowest 340. To much time it should have beaten the GTS by a big margin tho, but the 512 bit bus is nice.

I was speaking figuratively, not literally.

Whatever, I like ATI's architectural choices much more than NVIDIA's. The 512-bit memory bus and Unified Shader Architecture were both pioneered by ATI and first used by ATI.
