Radeon 8500 Bits - 10/12/01 @ 6:36 pm - By: Typedef Enum - Source:
OK, let's get the daily update on the 8500. If you've been keeping tabs on this, there have been a *few* people to actually buy one; however, something is obviously not right, because this card has yet to be officially reviewed.

Anand Lal Shimpi made yet another post today...here it is.

The question everyone has been asking me about is when will we see a final Radeon 8500 review? I don't like making firm commitments unless I can control all variables in a situation and in this case I unfortunately do not control all of those variables. I'll give you all a more solid update when I can, but currently I'm expecting to be able to publish early next week.

Now, this is where the speculation begins. Of the few people that have publicly posted information on the 8500, one thing stands out...FSAA, or lack thereof. SmoothVision has been reported to be an option in the D3D panel, but not OpenGL. Furthermore, I haven't seen a single person who claimed that FSAA made any tangible difference in visual quality. If you recall, this feature was broken in the pre-production (believe it was A12 silicon) units previewed a few months ago.

Then, there was the apparant inability of those lucky 8500 owners to publish their 3DMark2001 scores. Again, it has been speculated that (perhaps) ATI asked MadOnion to block 8500 scores.

When you factor in the lack of credible reviews, the apparant lack of functional FSAA, and what Anand had to say, I think you can pretty much guess that there are some issues that have yet to be ironed out...It sounds like a driver issue(s).

HalcYoN: The 8500 "release" continues to raise questions with out any answers.  Typedef is trying to analyze info here, but some ATI supporters want to shoot the messenger.

From assorted posts around the web and in our forum, it is evident there is a problem.  From past ATI releases, one has to conclude that the driver release in the box with the first batch of retail cards has issues.  There are reports of FSAA support being hit or miss, even resoltution dependent.

If you remember, the first few GeForce driver revs to include FSAA were buggy at best.  People questioned why the drivers were released at all...


Ti 500 Delays??? - 9/27/01 @ 9:56 am - By: Typedef Enum - Source: Beyond3D
It's pretty funny that I ran across this link to our forums @ Beyond3D. :)

Anyhow, an anonymous fella has made a post, claiming that the Titanium 500 is/will be delayed.

It's not too long, so I'll let er' rip.


GF3Ti500 delayed for unknown time. (IMHO, because of ATi's announce about R8500 clocked higher AND being delayed for couple of weeks. nVidia wants to crush ATI again. Just before new Radeons are about to show in stores.)

I heard this from _VERY_ reliable source.

and if you are asking who am I, sorry but I want to stay anonymous some time. Last time when I was here in the news (couple months ago...) , I was hitted in the face eventhough I was only the messenger.

HalcYoN: Ummm. Right. Eeyaahh. Certainly a very interesting claim, but I won't put any faith in it. ;)

Ben:Hrm I'd bet the poster the card I have in my box , that he's wrong , but then I'd be very upset if I lost..


WinXP First Look - 7/18/01 @ 8:30 am - By: HalcYoN - Source: Email
3D Spotlight has posted their Windows XP preview. Their preview includes installation and use on two systems. One system is a little "old" using a Celery 366@550 with Trident 2MB and Voodoo2. The other is a Celery 566@850 with a 64MB 3D Prophet GeForce2.

So, I could finally see the desktop! First thing I noticed is a very uncluttered desktop, and the only icon that resides is the recycle bin! Also, down on the bottom I can see that MSN messenger loaded right up with it. Windows XP has a cartoon-like look to it, but I must say, it is a bit refreshing. For those of you who miss the old fashioned look of older versions, XP does offer a desktop setting to go back in time, which will give you the look of Windows 98.
