Eh, whatever. My X1900 XT suits my needs for now. It'll be a while before I need to upgrade my video card.

i don't think it will push the other video card prices down as nvidia introduced a new price point and which new video cards can sell at. Those bastards...

It's exactly like what the 6800 Ultra was like with the 6800 GT, only this time it's the 8800 Ultra and 8800 GTX. The ONLY difference is the higher clock speeds and new revision of silicon (which is how they tweak it higher). Other than that, it's exactly the same as a GTX.

Oh and GUESS WHAT? They charge you another $200+ for it! How retarded.

Alvino's right. All that money for a 10-12% increase in performace is ridiculous.

I read somewhere that the MSRP of this card is supposed to go down to $700 in like 2 weeks. Better, but I still don't think it's justified.

Yeah, but you must have forgotten, they already released benchmarks for that, I thought. And it wasnt as good even the 8800GTS and barely better than the 8800GTS, althought the card was beta or something, it was still not that great.

If they simply dropped the price It would be loads better. Still that is one amazing card!

Yeah, and plus most likely by the time the R600 comes out, the 8900 series will be out. Those are supposed to be killer, with a GTS, GTX, and a GX2 version with 2 cores!!!

These are the rumored specs, we'll see:


Obviously it's not confirmed, and a few things look a bit fishy, but it's not all completely made up. It's an educated guess.
