All I know is that I'm getting the X950XT PE :). I know that there will be argument over whats better between the X950XT PE and the next gen 24 pipe Nvidia card, but atleast I won't have to hear from 6800GT/6800Ultra fanboys :) Haha! Just kidding PCGEEK :). I just can't wait for the 24 Pipeline card. I'm drooling on my keyboard right now. What was it? 4x faster than X800pro or was it 3? Whatevers that'll blow my current video card away for sure.

Those screen shots from Unreal 3 are absoultly fantastic.

As regulars here know I'm not a gamer, but f**k it, if the end results are as good as those screen shots I'll be at the front of the cue for what ever card it needs.

With out a doubt.

After I get my that vid card -whenever it's released to the public- I'll run 3dmarks and if my scores are still lower than your PCGEEK, I'm going to come to your house and jack your 6800GT :). Oh I'm sorry, I meant your 6800 Ultra Extreme Super Duper Omnipotent GT Video card :).

Sure Master whatever...

I highly doubt that, ATi has been ahead for quiet a while since the 9700pro and I highly dbout that will change in the near future. However I will say I'm happy so see Nvidia back in the game doing there thing with the 6800 series so the comp is back but beating ATI unlikely my friend regardless of which is better "cough ATI cough" I hope it is close so both Card makers can keep duking it out.

PEACE.

OMFG ATI is not ahead and has never never never never been ahead and never will be. So stop posting lies.

Nvidia each have there strong points. If you think the x850 xt PE beets the 6800 UE your flipping high. You can show me any test you want just shows who ever ran the test knows nothing about Nvidia cards.

ATI and Nvidia in my book are tied in all. Each bring great stuff to the table.

by the way Dont try and tell me how ATI x850xt pe is so much better than 6800 UE unless you have used and over clocked each of them.

PCGEEK i know very well that you HATE BENCHMARKS and dont go by them HOWEVER I do know and you do to that the 9700pro one it in 2000-01 vs. the Geforce 4's me and a friend tested a 4600 (8x) vs. 9700pro and it got OWNED then in the FX's those were HORRIBLE getting beat out by a 9800XT the and the 5800 and 5900 were getting beat in many games and running low frame rates while overclocked also im not spitting hot AIR who are u kidding. FINAALLy with the 5950 COmpitiion came and that Barely as that got beat out by the 9800 XT still in many games.

SO with THAT SAID YES NVIDIA seems to have caught up with its 6600GT and teh 6800GT beating out the Middle class buys because ATI made a bad choice and didnt do a 16pipe on the X800pro
Then the SLI which is like $1000 beats out a X850XT at that barely in game tests only at high AA and AF at 16x it shows by like 10FPS and dont try and tell me the 6800ULTRA beats in anway the X800XT PE because i know for a fact it does and thats not looking at Benchmarks.

With that said its clear ATI and NIVIDA have good cards right now and In the Middle class Bracket as well as the High end class because of the SLI NIVIDA is winning but dont even try to convice me that ATI is losing this one and has been losing since 2000 who are you kidding.

I never stated that the ATI series was much better if even better in the first place with the new GEN but it will be ^_^ will and was back in 2000 and u know that. For now i cant say because compition is once again close and the G70 & 80 have yet to be reveiled.

AND THE X850XT PE is not much better than the 6800 ULTRA but IS AT stock IN OC then yes they are still very strong competitors and THE 6800 will even beat the X800series in some tests i UNDERSTAND THAT PERFECTLY.
however saying this " If you think the x850 xt PE beets the 6800 UE your flipping high. You can show me any test you want just shows who ever ran the test knows nothing about Nvidia cards." is just plain ignorant please try to understand me im not being rude.
PEACE~~~~!

I wasn't 'hating on' the Unreal screenshots, but those pictures were from well over 2 years ago, and concept screenshots should always be takin with a grain of salt. It could be better or worse, but I have a slight feeling that Unreal is going to downscale the graphics just a small tad. They can't make the game require graphics cards which no one has. The Unreal 3 technology demo was using a 6800 GT and was recieving 27.88 FPS. That's terrible in my book, but of course there will be optimizations, along with optimizations there will be cutdowns to graphics. That's just my opinion.

How would the x850xt pe which I have now be able to run the games on this new engine you think? I'd imagine my set up now should be able to play it at least fairly well, maybe id need to upgrade to more then just a gig of ram? Any thoughts?
