08-11-03, 02:45 AM
Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think, that this chip was supposed to be out in July and now it's August. What's going on ?

according to a Nvidia and a PNY representative its only an OEM version.
It won't be available in the retail market.

In leaked Detonator 45.23 driver's nv4disp.inf, Geforce FX 5900 SE is on the list as well as both Geforce FX 5200 SE and Geforce FX 5600 SE. I think it will be same thing it did with Geforce 4 Ti 4800 SE.

So am i going to be able to buy it or not ?

Geforce FX 5900 SE is not launched yet, I think it probably will be launch this month or few months time maybe launch it with both 5600 SE and 5200 SE. It will take a while until Nvidia reduce the cost of manufacturing the chips to meet the target prices.

I'm planning to buy a new videocard for Half-Life 2. So is it going to be out til the end of September? And if not, is it worth to buy a FX 5800 non-ultra instead ?

Yes Half Life 2 will be out by end of September, it not worth to buy 5800 non ultra now, best to wait until middle of September to buy 5900 non ultra cos the price different between 5800 and 5900 is 38 here in UK, a month from now the price will fall to the same price 5800 was today will be in middle of September.

Yeah but in the UK nVIDIA cards are overpriced. I believe the 5x00SE are enhanced core's, no diffrence in features but hopfully higher yield for mass production.

How overpriced you talk about? nVIDIA cards are quite overpriced in UK but it not that bad like 5600 Ultra in USA is $126 and in the UK it 125, it the same price dollar to pound. But when you convert the $126 dollar to pound, it 78 - 47 different here in UK and the USA. Now look at Radeon 9800 Pro 128Mb, it $200 in USA and 280 here in UK, $200 convert to the pound equal 124 so it huge 156 different. And last 5900 128Mb, $310 in USA and 269 in UK, $310 converted to the pound equal 193, it 76 different.

So 47 different is not a big deal, 76 different is not bad so you can afford it and 156 different is the worst price that lots of people cant afford it. In the end Nvidia cards here the UK are cheaper that lots of people can afford it but Radeon cards are so very overpriced that lots of people cant afford, it the RIP OFF!

THe cheapest FX5600Ultra i have seen is for 150 and it's for the old revision one :rolleyes:

Also that $200 9800Pro is limited as such it won't stay like that for very long it will go back in price, look at pricewatch.com and the cheapest they have is $325.

What about the FX5900Ultra $433 (365) = $155/98 diffrence
R9800NP 215/($243) = $100/62 diffrence
R9800Pro 289/($323) = $139/86

Also i have seen a Creative FX5600Ultra for 165 unknown what revision
But i have seen an Radeon 9700NP for 150 also which do you thinks the better buy?

The cheapest 5600 Ultra I found is cost 125 (http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=48146)

I noticed you calculated the currency wrong, I calculated it with XE.com (http://www.xe.com) so I will put it all right.

5900 Ultra 256Mb US $402 (251) UK 339 = $140/88 different
5900 128Mb US $310 (193) UK 269 = $121/76 different
9800 Pro 256Mb $413 (257) UK 364 = $171/107 different
9800 Pro 128Mb $321 (200) UK 290 = $144/90 different
9800 128Mb $232 (144) UK 215 = $113/71 different

Radeon 9700 for 150 is more likely to be on clearance sale to get clear stock, I find it very hard to find 9700 as I found only 2 suppliers got it on sale, the cheapest are from VGI Computers (http://www.vgicomputers.com/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Connect3D_276.html) for 206.

I checked pricewatch and found the 5900 price are now fall to $299 (http://www.gameve.com/store/gameve_viewitem.asp?idproduct=1197&showit=1) with free shipping. It now about $50 different with 5800 and 5900 :)
