When is this thing coming out and how much would you guys estimate the price to be? Will they release AGP version too? Will my 430 Watt Antec PSU be enough for it? Thanks.

$600 starting price, no AGP, and 430 watt minimum; that would be my guess for the next GPU. This guy is speculating along with the rest of the impatient population, there is no guarentee or any plans by ATi (which I know of) that there will be a X950 chip.

Plus, I doubt the Unreal 3 engine is going to be as good as some pictures show it. It's been in planning to long; those screenshots are from 2 years ago. I doubt Unreal will release anything that the average system can't handle. They've always been known to have games which can be easily played on even low end systems.

Artificial Studios. They seem to have something going with the Reality engine.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was an agp version, or at least agp cards with the same chip.

PCI cards were made long after the introduction of AGP

PCI-X has been around for years, before AGP. PCI Express is quite recent.
ATi will prob use their Rialto broidge and get the chip onto AGP, otherwise they'll lose money from the many users who still have AGP. It makes no business sense to not cater for them.

don't start drooling yet guys wait untill nVdia brings up their flagship. and then we'll see a real price for dominance. But sadly i expect ATI to win this round because of newer architechture. this time nVidia will be introducing Overlcocked older architechture

:-(

Roy its not old new because its not even out yet and still much is unknown

However YES UNREALTOURNAMENT 2006 will HAVE Graphics like that see the new technology here as stated by the UNREAL TEAM them selves look here. http://www.unrealtechnology.com/html/technology/ue30.shtml

and what would you exspect a decline in graphics just look at Half-life 2
Also Yes ATi said they would create a AGP verison which is rumored and it should run well on a 420-watt power supply and up. Also The card will start at $500 for the regualar and $550 for the PE which just has higher clocks both will come with 512GDDR3 with 24 PIXEL PIPES and they are rumored to becoming End of APRIL and should be out to buy in MAY. ^_^
More of this can be seen on here
http://www.ati.com

I dont know why real rob feels like hating on Unreal just like HL 2 was "in planning for a long time for like 5years" it looks fantastic. And UNREAL has always had break through techonlogy. So yes this will be how the game looks and dont just take my word for it

PS ROy if you do not believe the graphics to be this good just read about the 64-bit color High Dynamic Range rendering pipeline. And more on the Unreal offical web listed above. YOu'd better hope games will look this good IN 2006. Also MIDWAY games is going to use a MODIFIED UNREAL engine 3 for their new games coming out this year. UT2k6 should be out early 06 or late 05 (december) thats rumored.

However the REality engine is also going to be great and has been in development for over 2years as well.

What my eyes are seeing is a world of 3d dominance where ati is gonna kick ass. Man those are the best graphics I've ever seen, Ill start saving cuz you know, when those games and card come out they r gonna be quite expensive heh. Again, DAMN! :D I really like how that looks, and i think it was about time games looked VERY reallistic. And I mean VERY VERY reallistic.

S()mb@S@n, people are saying that PCI-Express is going to mature and later be way better than AGP. Do you think by the time the X950XT PE comes out the PCI-Express is going to perform way better than the APG version? Or do you think it's safe for me to go ahead and purchase the AGP version and wait a little longer till I switch to PCI-Express mobos? Peace.

Theadore If you already have a very nice AGP board then getting an equal in performace X950XT PE will be no problem ATi knows as well as we all that the majority gamers today still use AGP. However this issue of PCIexpress being faster is true but not enough to bring significant FPS until much later perfected verison of video cards and Mobos can utilize it so i suggesst sticking with ur AGP and see like we all how the PCI express will turn out \

peace

There will be a 24 pipe 512 Nvidia card but its being kept tight liped ATM. Dont worry it will blow ATI away as always.

HAHA PC geek that was funny thats great if NVIA is copying ATI once again and making a 24pixel pipe card but i have to see to believe; and ATI's is coming out next month but i hope NVidia makes one because that will keep the compition up. And oh ya bout' the competition ATI has one the last 2 gens of cards starting from what was that cards name oh ya the 9700pro which clean NVI on the floor also with the new X850XT or even the X800XT AIW which give much more value than 2 SLI cards smacked togther needed a 1000000 watt power supply to servive much less beat out a XT800 by 5-10FPS. please
