Legit ATI 512MB 4870 HD benches?
Some runs against the 9800GX2- Cheers to ATI if these are for real :clap: And so begins the summer's GPU war.
hmmm if those are real, i might get a 4870
HOLY crap have you seen the scores
The table from VRzone shows NVidia's alleged release plan for the summer- I am sceptical that the gt200 would be called a 9900- I would expect it to get a new naming system to highlight it as a new process- I would have thought that if NVidia released a 9900, it would be the final rehash of the exisitng series.
ME SO HAPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If this is real! Man I am so happy. This summer is going to be a nice upgrade and best of all it is all covered by my tax refund. I could do a full system upgrade if I wanted.
This looks awesome! If these are real, I'll definitely by a 4870 if not a 4870X2 (unless of course the 9900GTX/S is extremely awesome, which I'm somewhat doubting).
are you sure that's not a 4870x2?. I find it hard to believe a single 4870 will beat a 9800gx2 but yeah, if it's true it looks like it's going to be a good year for AMD/ATI
I'd have the same question, really. My own rig with a 3.00 GHz quad + 3870X2, scores about 16k-ish on 3DMark06 with the latest drivers. With the increase in guts that the 4870 generation is supposed to have, 21-ish seems pretty reasonable for the 4870X2. But a 21k score on a single core card, nevermind those other scores - DAMN.
Mind, there's been some claims that they've finally figured out how to make two cores use the same video memory, which might make a big difference if they were true.
I will not say more but that is N...O....T legit. If anything, it is a semi-educated guess.
Anyone who has half a brain can make a guess as to the performance of an unreleased card by posting scores which are above that of the current competition. They will then say "hey, I was RIGHT" if the scores are somewhat right or they will fade into the background if their "scores" are proven to be absolute BS.
Yeah, figures as much. Although you bring up a very good point...
Attention: The upcoming 4000-series cards will feature an anti-gravity system to help you move your case around.
Remember everybody, if it actually happens, you heard it from me first! :biggrin:
SKY's right IMO look at all the other "leaked" info over the years, I dont bite until something is solid:dots:
