I dont know if its been brought up yet, but this place is selling a 5900 (non ultra) for $365 + $10 shipping. Its the first preorder ive seen and the price is awesome.

I know it says "tentative price" but if they can keep it at $365, thats a very good deal considering the performance you're getting.

Are you certain of the performance? I have heard some different numbers about what clock the 'non-ultra' boards have. You may want to make sure before you shell out for it.

Sites are getting the Non-Ultras as we speak, soon we will know the clock's of them, if the core and memory speed is the same, there will not be a big of a diffrence between the ultra.

Im almost convinced that the 5900 will be clocked at 400\850. If it is, its still going to be a hell of a card. Especially if it sells for $365!

I dont plan on buying one tho, I dont have the money! If I do upgrade to an FX card, It will most likely be the Value 5900 for around $250. That is, if it performs as good as (or better than) a 5800.

From what I was reading today I might just wait for the NV40.
2x as fast. It's going to be a beast for sure. :)

Question is how much of this is true...

If my memory serves me correctly, NVIDIA (or Huang) stated NV35 would be twice as fast as NV30; well...

Well I should hope so, since you've already got a 5800 ;)

I dont understand those people that buy a 9700 Pro, then a 5800 Ultra, then a 9800 Pro and then 5900 Ultra..... wheres the fun in upgrading when your current card isnt much slower than the thing you are upgrading to? Besides, if you bought them all when they were released, you would be spending around $1800 on video cards in less than one year :\

fx5900u= 256 megs ram at 450/850
fx5900= 128 megs ram at 400/800
fx5900se= 128 megs ram at 350/750


the lower clock cores are speed binned, those that fail to make 450 find their way at 400 then 350, if not its thrown away

Is that the official speed of the 5900se(?), because thats really not THAT low considering it should be more than $200 cheaper than the 5900 Ultra. A little overclocking could probably get the thing close to 5900 performance.

I better get a job..... im going to be drooling when these babies come out :drooling:

If the 5900SE is the same as the 5900value, then it will have a 128bit bus!
