no reason to have the 5.13s yet as they dont improve on gaming performance.

It may not but the AVIVO thingie is a part of 5.13. By the way.... does AVIVO support X800 series card or just X1000's cards ?????

AVIVO is only for X1000's cards & above. The Cat 5.13 beta is "BETA" just like the Cat 5.12 which were in beta at first. But look what happend to the 5.12 after it was released, PCGEEK is proof, that they improved in performance & quality.

Now, this AVIVO is wild, and if anybody is in watching DVD's, burning then, encoding, decoding etc. than ATI's AVIVO is for you. Heck, I would love to have AVIVO render this stuff @ 5 x faster than the CPU ;)

You're comparing the top of the line ATI to the 3rd in line NVIDIA.

Why don't we compare a 7800GTX 512MB to an X850XT PE?

pred,

You missed the point. I had 2 7800 GT OC 491 1.22 in SLI.

I wanted to compare 1 X1800XT 512 to them and see how well it stacked up. if it was a better single card option. Turns out it killed my SLI performance in games in every way possible. FPS and quality where no match.

This whole thing was done in order to know What was better for me and to offer people a perspective and facts to know just how well it did.

damit im geting tired of people saying the same stupid think cant you read ?

Also 2 7800 GT OC in SLI =$640.00 or more after tax

1 X1800XT 512 about the same little less.

Price performance ATI took it hands down by a mile

Now we know that ATI is better in "Image Quality" than NVIDIA right?

WOW Adam, great scores and Image Quality, I think someone is failed to notice, that you already beats the 7800GTX/7800GTX512MB ;)

You even beat the eVGA Black Pearl 7800GTX 512MB with 600Mhz Core and 1800Mhz Memory, which needs 'Water Cooling' to keep the Core Cool, lol let alone 7800GT ;)

did the same with my SLI trust me everyone . ATI owns all for quality. Post picks of your 7800 GTX,s if ya like to compare. Pick same spots in games i did.

I'll also add that this 1 X1800XT killed my 7800 gt oc SLI FPS in every game look for your self all shots taken with Fraps. 1600x1200 max everything drivers and game.

PCGEEK, I'ved been browzing the net & you are not alone pal, there are several getting amazing quality out of the X1800XT, this is happening with several reviews. Even the X1600 & X1300 with Cat 5.12 & 5.13 are getting amazing quality matching the X1800's.

ATI has a good think here, with this AVIVO. They were getting picked on by several people about 3 to 4 weeks ago, and now they dug a deep hole & stuck there head into it LOL,
