Same, I can't wait to see some real benchmarks from the GTX 480 :) I hope Fermi was worth it :) I currently have a GTX 285 and really satisfied with this monster, ok it was kinda pricy when it was out but all in all there's not one game out there that this card can't handle so I hope that will be the same with the GTX 480 but then for future DX11 games offcourse :)

If Fermi is a failure you will see me crying that day and the days afterwards :p (yes, I'm a little green goblin here hehe =p I had some bad experiences with ATI in the past, mostly driver issues)

ps : sorry for my bad english ^^

You sound quietly confident DB :)

It's more powerful kit what's not to like Gordon Moore

It's a sign, I've just been catching up on the Sarah Connor Chronicles where Cromarty is resurrected. He's out there somewhere :)

Darth, on the Quadro, holy crap, man.....

I'd be wearing Nvidia t-shirts, sneakers, hell.. I'd walk around town with their 3-D glasses on if they sent me a gift like that. :D

February 18, 2010: According to X-bit labs, "mass availability of appropriate products is only expected in Q2 of FY 2011. [...] the Q2 of FY 2011 will last from May till late July, 2010

thats a long wait

Pax east is on the 26th to 28th of march 2010 and the actual hardware reviews of the cards only happends a week later,so we'll see final clocks,performance and power use only in early april,and the guru 3D article above hints that overall performance is good but not the crushing victory some here expect,with the GTX 470 cards selling for about the same price as the HD5850 cards.

Quote from Guru3d follows:

What I will tell you is that the clock frequencies on these boards surprised me, the GeForce 470 seems to be clocked at roughly 650 MHz, that's lower than I expected. And that indeed will have an effect on performance. I think it's safe to that the GeForce 470 and 480 will be worthy competitors towards the Radeon HD 5850 and 5870. Will it be a knock-out ? I doubt it very much. But is it important for NVIDIA to deliver a knockout to the competition ? Well they would hope so, but no .. not really, as the current performance levels that ATI for example offers simply are superb already. Being six months late to the market does pose an issue, ATI will already be respinning and binning their upcoming products, clocked higher and they could match NVIDIA in either price or performance.


Interpret that as you will,but it's not looking great....My take on it?....Ouch after waiting 7+ months for this thing.

I still have faith in the Green team :)

If they compete with the HD5850 and HD5870 I wouldn't find that a bad thing, I expected more yes, but if they are priced well I'm surely gonna buy me a GTX 480 :) Note that I don't buy a graphics card only for 3D-gaming, CUDA-accelerated apps such as Photoshop is what I like 2 :) And in the future Adobe will go for OpenCl which I think ATI has not (yet) :)

That's about the only thing really,it's GP-GPU capabilities with the use of Cuda,where the overall infrestructure is far more developed,with more applications actually being developed and currently running with Cuda,compared to with ATI.


Thinking back about it though,it did seem strange that when ATI lanched the HD5700/5800 cards back on september 23rd and it focused on gaming to a large degree,when Nvidia held it's first press conference regarding fermi a week later,they focused mainly on it's GP-GPU capabilities and didn't even speak of gaming performance yet.


As the weeks and months went by and still no leaks on gaming performance,and the focus still remained on GP-GPU abilities,i began to get the impression that unlike ATI,it seems that the main focus for Fermi is that of primarily being a GP-GPU that can also play games,rather than primarily a GPU that could technically also do GP-GPU applications(ATI's aproach).


Basically it comes down to the primary focus for each processor.

May I ask when the NDA is up? I don't feel like reading entire threads to see if it's been posted already. :o

LoL, either way I'm sure things will be interesting when the floodgates are finally opened.

yep. Damn, I need to crack the whip and get these big arse acrylic case badges designed. I will give you guys pictures of them first ;) NvNews scoop.

Looking forward to it, as well as good pics of your "ChrisRay" project. You and I may not get along much Beavis, but they gave the project to the right modder for sure.

i think we get along fine dude. If you think i do not like you then you are dead wrong.

:lol:

More in reference to certain views, not you personally DB. Then again I also agree with a lot of your other views...but no, nothing personal.

I just think you have poor taste in mannequins. :lol:

I would love to modify a Buddy Christ mannequin but would not do so as someone would get pissed

Heh, I'm pretty sure someone in that big wide world out there has done it already.

Not GTX 480 powered though.
