I wonder what the 4870x2 is going to be priced at. If Amd priced it at $499 would nvidia have to lower the gtx 280 price even lower?

Nvidia might ended up selling more GTX cards then ATI. I bet Nvidia will play same game with low price on GTX280 compared to HD4870 X2 as ATI did with HD4870. Also Nvidia is probably working on GX2 card.

I was looking at power consumption charts.. is there a power supply that could handle a quad GTX280 system? 0.o 2 of those under load consume more power then quad 9800x2's according to the graph I saw.

Her we go all over again from the x800 days or even 9800pro days over fx 5900's to 6800's

If Nvidia releases GX2 based on GTX280 i assume it will have 256bit mem bus with 1gb for each GPU (2gb) and could more like GTX260 based then GTX280.

Actually i really do. GTX260 on 256bit mem bus is possible with 512mb. See if all those brains like Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein listened the morons like you who were telling them "You have no grasp of reality do you?, they would not accomplish anything...

Uhhh....wouldn't that be a 9800GX2 then? What is the point?

Nah. It would not cause GTX260 is faster then 8800GT chip but also to have GDDR5 on 260GX2 board on 256bit bus.
9800GX2 barely beats single GTX280 or in many games single GTX260. 9800GX2 against two GTX260 is not even close.

lol actually that would probably motivate them further, not shut them down..

The other way around. If they paid attention to them then they would do what that person suggested or say, yeah what i'm doing doesn't make sense so i will quit working on. The bottom line they didn't give a **** about morons around them. 5 years ago i was saying that todays HDD will be replaced with what SSD is and slowly is getting there, and of course people laughed (no grasp for reality crap). Guess i was right, just like i'm saying that in 25 years we will be running terminals at home, connected and services we pay for entertainment, games, programs will be provided by powerfull servers. Two key words; CONTROL, MONEY.

So who is this case the Einstein ?
Is it the NVIDIA for pricing the 200 series cards so high even though they new long time before about the AMD/ATI 4000 series pricing and performances?
Was there really a need to make lots off early loyal buyers not to happy about that?

Or is it you the Einstein with all off yours long time prediction (most off them already happened), who could not predict than in only about 2 weeks after introduction the 200 series is going to drop price big time?

Nobody knew how GTX280 and HD4870 will perform till we saw official reviews. But from my experience with HD4870, it's crap compared to GTX280. The price difference is there for a reason.

I'm sure that will stave off many buyers. "Reliable source" just oozes from your posts.

Yeah, it's called "I ripped you the **** off."

I picture used-car salesmen drooling like a golden retriever when they see you coming.

Guys, control yourselves.

If this turns into a mess of personal attacks the thread is getting closed and posts will be deleted. If you continue to drag arguments into other threads you'll be dealt with individually.

Are you the "Nobody" who forgot to read the many un-official previews?
How come when you did see the "official reviews" none said "HD4870, it's crap compared to GTX280"
If your own experience was true it would save NVIDIA lots off money.

Anyway the point was that the NVIDIA did know long time before plus there was only few days difference between the releases.

I believe this warning should be pointed mainly towards "hell_of_doom227" , he is ALREADY posting exactly same trolls in other treads.

No... really? Did you really just compare yourself to Edison, Tesla, and Einstein?

Truly, the most epic of all epic fails.

EPIC FAIL!
