SiliconFreak -> 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/20/2006 6:26:18 PM)

Nvidia can not raise the bar...[&:]

Nvidia's flagship G71 won't be able to get to the speeds the firm wanted it to. We reported before that Nvidia needs at least 700MHz to beat ATI's R580 based X1900 XTX. However, according to our sources, the G71 will be nothing more than a 90 nanometre G70 die shrink. It won't have more than 24 pipelines but you never know what Nvidia has exactly up its sleeves.

It will use GDDR 3 memory running at 800MHz, with a 1600 MHz memory clock. In the case it ends up with 24 pipes it won't be enough to touch the R580, Radeon X1900 XTX performance crown. If Nvidia did put 32 pipes in G71 chip this would make its chip as a much better competitor and will make ATI run hard for its crown. We think that Nvidia could win most of the benchmarks with 32 pipes.

Nvidia plans to price its Geforce 7900 GTX very aggressively. That’s what you do if you cannot beat your competitor on the performance side. This card should cost $499 only and even the price indicates that the card won't be able to get the performance crown back. Last time Nvidia had a great card that managed to win all the benchmarks it priced its card at a saucy $650 and sold every single piece.

The cards should be sampled by the end of the month or at CeBIT. Nvidia will invite its loyal press, to Santa Clara to show them its new part. There will also be lower clocked G70 90 nanometre parts branded as Geforce 7800 GT and priced even less. Nvidia also plans to attack X1600 generation with its new 7600 GT, GS cards all scheduled for Cebit launch.

Remember, if G71 has 24 pipelines so does Sony Playstation 3. We will still sniff about it as some things are still unclear and G71 is more important to Nvidia that you can imagine. As long as it can ship millions of these chips at 550 MHz, a speed desired by Sony, Nvidia is fine.

just wonder...what if...it also wont have vivo? what then? will this endless Saga continue? [8D][:D]

Hopefully it will have it...so you will finally get what you've been waiting for quite few months...[:D] And if not...there is always X1900XTX available...[;)]

Good luck.

major9686 -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/21/2006 1:40:13 PM)

ahhh ..
thx u guys ;)

but if it wont have VIVO ..
I will get some cheap 6600 or something ...
and wait for the DX10 compatible cards ha ha ha ;)
another saga !! KAMEHAMEHA




SiliconFreak -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/21/2006 5:19:35 PM)

Wellllllllll....dont know yet for 7900GTX&VIVO...but....in case you need DX10 compatible card....read THIS ARTICLE...[:)][;)] G80 is the code-name...and you'll have to wait...since its not out yet (but you are used to wait arent you? [8D][:D])...

Cyaaaaaaaaaaa




major9686 -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/22/2006 3:40:50 AM)

yeah ..
and since the new 7600GT doesnt have VIVO and only 128bit ..
Im gettin' myself a normal 6600 :) ha ha .. which is very cheap ... ha ha ..

even the x1300 has VIVO :(




SiliconFreak -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/22/2006 12:31:56 PM)

hahahahaha...just get yourself a good "old" 6600 then...its a good card afterall...so i dont know why you waited for so long!? [:)][;)]

And about X1300's VIVO...thats another story...we are talking about ATI there, and not about some Nvidia-alike company.....and ATI surely knows whats good for them as well as for their customers....[;)]


Maybe sad (for some people), but VERY TRUE! (and happy for others - count me on their side)...[8D][:D]


cya.

x1300 has vivo but it sux :(
if only 6800GS had vivo ..
or x800gto had ShaderModel 3 .. (doesnt matter that it supports dx9.0b)


EDIT -> should I get this : http://www.avermedia.com/cgi-bin/products_capture_ezmaker.asp?show=4#
it will make up for not havin' a vivo in my gpu ..
also .. I need a new PSU .. cause mine has only 350w


EDIT2 -> so which should I get ?

SiliconFreak -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/22/2006 5:26:36 PM)

EZMaker Gold is good option here...also try looking at latest Leadtek's TV tuner/capture cards....[;)]

And between 6800GS's that you listed....I would go for E-VGA's model (my opinion)...[:)]

Otherwise...look at the table below...and try to find EVGA's Superclocked model....or Leadtek's Extreme model...orrrrrr....maybe XFX's XXX model....(if they arent priced unreasonably higher than "normal" models)...[;)]


Finally...2 more links/articles - in case you havent read them yet...

Our review of XFX's 6800GS XXX Edition.... (there is a wrong claim inside...cause this is not the fastest 6800GS available - that title goes to eVGA's CO Superclocked model! [:)])

well ... that store that I buy the pc parts has only GilForsa and Evga ..

so I will take the one that has either vivo .. or better bundle :)

and as for tv tuner card .. they dont have leadtek .. I know some other store that does have it but they are abit expensive .. especially and graphic cards and tv tuners .. and leadtek has some expensive stuff ..




SiliconFreak -> RE: 7900 GTX works at 650 MHz ! (2/23/2006 10:11:42 AM)

Dont know...just go for whatever suits you (and your vallet) the most...[;)]

Leadtek's products are very good ones and also not too expensive....not at all...but then again...I dont live in Israel...[:)]

So, I would go for eVGA's card....but that's my opinion...so its your choice to make...but regardless of which one you'll buy....you cant go wrong...they are both good cards![;)]
