You should be king of that HWA policy ey. ;)

And your point is GT90? Because you've clearly misread Somba's post.

HD 2900 XT 1 GDDR4 is superior to the 8800 GTS, and GTX in Vista, as well I assume XP as soon as drivers get revised.



Er, care to show me benchmarks proving that??

Oh wait, you cant, because you made a blatantly false statement.

If you're going on about those bloomin' Crossfire / SLI results from that dodgy site again, I've addressed that in the other thread


Make sure you digest it well O.K. ;)
-HD 2900XTX 1GB- Probably a Typo with the added "X" & 1GB, but not sure?

So, like I've said 50 Billion times, it all depends on games & benchmarks. Both ATI & NVIDIA have there weaknesses & strengths O.K.

4 separate links ALL referencing to one FUD data does NOT equal to 4 separate reviews.... What it equals to is 4 FUD links.

So it is the HD2900XT 9 inch 1GB model that is the great performer ?

Is this the card good then?

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-062-OK...subcat=922


Yes I believe it is quite good. You got 1GB of GDDR4 under the hood. Just wait until ATI comes out with newer drivers, the card should rock.

DublinGunner, I think you are dreaming again, the systems are identicle in memory, CPU, CPU OC, etc, except for the Crossfire chipset vs. the SLI chipset obviously.

And YES, the SLI licked Crossfire's balls up & down like a puppy on crack. R U blind or something LOL, :P

Possible it meant the first 1GB GDDR4 card.

One of the reviews says it is quite close to the 8800Ultra in performance.

It seems to me that some people on this thread flat out want to deny the "FACT" that R600 Crossfire beat G80 SLI in Direct X10 Vista. I am sure SLI won a few too, so what is the problem LOL, Boggles my mind in this forum I tell you :/

Well, I would imagine it would be thanks to the 1GB of memory & its handling of DX10. But ATI just came out with the card, so they obviously need better drivers to really show off its performance. As for Price/Performace, it wins in my book.

Not knocking the 8800 Ultra at all, NVIDIA had drivers out for a long while now, and the card does perform quite well, though not worth its Price/Performance at the moment.

Also. The 1GB HD2900XT is quite a bit cheaper then the 8800GTX in the UK. It looks a good buy for the price.

You didnt even read the specs, did you? You just looked at the numbers!

And considering the so called SLI setup was really only getting the same numbers as a single GTX, I think its quite apparent that SLI wasnt working.

>> Re: Re: AMD's Barcelona, cheaters never win?
You quoted a benchmark, done by some silly site, that clearly doeant even have SLI enabled, as single GTX's score higher with the same settings in the same games. They dont even list what drivers they're using, and are using 3 different PC's. If you consider that a valid comparison, you've just proved to everyone (like they dont already know) that you really have no idea about the subject.

I'm not gonna bother replying to you in future because you're so ludicruously idiotic you come across; it amazes me at times.

I can never understand how a fanboy's head works, maybe you could enlighten us all?



Cleary you don't understand anything. How do you know they don't have SLI enabled, even when it Cleary says SLI on the benchmarks? Simple, you don't. The only defense you bring to the table is " some silly site" right cause that's creditable.

I should be asking your hypocritical hide that question. I don't understand how a fan boy such as you can be so ignorant, and I would rather not be enlightened with that kind of stupidity.
