OK as I thought. The Cat 5.12,s painted a different picture.

Now we see that AA problem was fixed and now matches 7800 class to the last inch. FPS are a match to 2 7800 GT OC in SLI with just 1 X1800XT 512 and quality is a dead match. I can no longer tell a difference.

Screen shots are in 1280x768 Wide screen.

Keep in mind Fear was made for nvidia 7800 class. Even The makers said so. So i'm impressed that 1 X1800XT 512 can stand tow to tow with 2 7800 GT OC in SLI.

pcgeek, you must be single with no kids. I'm jealous because I cannot buy all that sh*t because of my mortage and family needs. Damn I have to live vicariously through your benchmarks. From what I know about you from reading other posts, you buy retail @ compusa, to boot. So would you suggest just buying the ati card now that you got the new drivers or are you still on the fence with the sli setup?

As you can see the Cat 5.12,s gave me 350 points in 05 to

3Dmark05 9,843

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=1553883

one cools PC with X2 4800+ @ 5600+ scores 190 points higher then me. So it would seem my CPU is bottlenecked by this GPU. his overclock is a dead match to mine.

OK now farcry and half life 2 with new cat 5.12,s to come

as for if I'm still on the fence with ATI. Few more in game tests will settle this.

Also bro I have 4 kids 2 are my live in Gf,s and 2 are mine. I have a home . payments up the ass like anyone else. Thank god i make a good living.

Ok, so in your system, the X1800XT is currenly pretty close to tied with the 2x7800GT's? All results are OC'd as high as you can currently get stable, correct?

"Not only does the X1800XT have 512mb ram, thus making it a decent comparison to 2 7800GT which runs at 256mb each, which added together makes 512mb (no duh). And the prices match up."

Actually, the 7800GT's can only use 256MB memory. One of the limitations of SLI (and probably Cross Fire) is that each card has to have a copy of all the textures.

Well, according to these numbers using the new drivers, CrossFire X1800XT's MIGHT just match the Over-Clocked 7800GTX 512MB cards...It's incredible how optimized the X1*K line of cards are with half the Pipe-lines of the competition to come close or match it. It's like how optimized and well designed AMD processors are against Intel's high-clocked processors. I'm thinking I should wait untill Socket M with the new ATI CrossFire MotherBoard is released to get my cards from them. Untill now, the X850XT is a very nice card paired with a Athlon 64 4000+.

Same example. ATI's 3D Rage Pro 8, 16, 32 & 64MB graphic cards had better image quality than GeForce 3 came out. But what did NVIDIA do, they kept on releasing drivers to better there new product. I mean it was completely new, so that takes time to work with.

The same goes with ATI's X1800XT 512MB. People have to realize that the R520 arcitecture is completely new. ATI even said that it's quality & speed will only get better & better. They have a 256-Bit (8-way) & 512-Bit memory controllers in there R520 & R580.

PCGEEK, why not try the Omega 5.12 drivers or even the beta 5.13's?

yes all overclocked to max Greg. Yes in game performance and quality seems to be a dead match between 2 7800 Gt OC in SLI and 1 X1800Xt 512.

Benchmarks of coarse SLI pulls ahead but not by much.

Ack, well I saved in jpeg format in paint so it looks a little weird. ( Don't have fraps registered D: ) Anyway if you want the bmp screenshots, which are about 5mb each, you can hit me up on aim/msn. Anyway here are my screenshots, you guys can compare. These are on one 7800GTX 512, not two.

Lost a little detail in your Jpegs like i do but we get the idea. I think the ATI have a little more color and texture quality from what i see. But AA seems very Close. All and All there a match. If you look at color and texture detail in my X1800XT 512 i think it looks little better.

Can you tell me where exactly are you in the game so I can get a screenshot in bmp and compare it to yours in bmp?

Ok now we look at Half life 2 with Cat 5.12,s.

Dead match in quality if not better then my 7800 Gt,s in SLI.

FPS I think the 7800 GT,s offered little more but the X1800XT 512 is rock solid @ 60 FPS and eye cant see more then 60 FPS so its all good.

tell ya what go to start of Fear post 4 screen shots ill match them same spots. Don't do movies there not the same as game. I would say when he first gets out of the car try there. Fire , shelves , walls , ETC.

Also lets do default bitmaps. ill load mine to my web site. lets get a true compare in half life 2 and fear OK ?

I would like to know just how close they really are. So if we do same spots in game and default bitmaps then we will know.

lol come on man we had to know once and for all who really is better. I am bring balance. After this No one will ever say ATI is better or Nvidia is better with out hard proof. lets give them there proof.

PC Geek,

Are you really going to stick to one video card? Doesn't sound like you.

So Pc Geek. Bottom line. From what you had before and what you have now, wich would you choose for just for quality and not price?? Now from same statement before but with price involved??? And can you even tell a difference between the 2? Also, can a person have 2 x1800xt 512s, like the 7800s? Err and any other detail you would like to give between the 2 would be splendid. Foshizzle!

About my spelling, If you say anything about it im gonna hunt your nerdy english aniel retentive arrrssse down and beat the elcrapo right out of you!!!!

In game performance and quality the X1800Xt 512 matches or maybe passes 2 7800 GT OC in SLI.

From what i can see I am very happy. For a single GPU option Its very nice.

At this point the 7800 GT, OC cost me $200.00 more . Would I go back to them ? Not a chance now. I'm happy with this ATI. Cant wait to try the R580.

O and no its not a heater. mine Idols 32c and maxes under load 42c Stock cooling. Trick is the use ATI tool change stock fan from stock 20% to 100% . Boom instant 40c drop or better.

O and ian. Hell no ill wait for R580 or get another X1800Xt 512 in crossfire.
