04-01-04, 07:18 AM
Rojakpot has a leaked sample of the NV40 & they did a fast review & some benchmarks for it againest the current performance leaders , the ATI 9800XT & NVIDIA 5950U .
the memory was a GDDR3 clocked at a whooping 700Mhz! (1400mhz effective).

Halo (DX9.0):
9800XT = 65.3
5950U = 71.5
NV40 = 154.6

Gun Metal (DX9.0):
9800XT = 39.6
5950U = 45.6
NV40 = 72.4

UT2003 (DX8.0):
9800XT = 283.5
5950U = 296.3
NV40 = 463.4

Wolf : ET (OpenGL) :

9800XT = 103.6
5950U = 120.5
NV40 = 137.6


remember these are just a beta drivers , the official drivers should improve the performance further ! :D

Because the 5950 is beating the 9800XT by a long shot in DX9 benches...

04-01-04, 10:02 AM
thats funny stuff. i bet the whole web if full of computer jokes for today.

Definately a fake. Although it would be nice if it were true. We'll just have to wait 12 days and find out.

04-01-04, 12:38 PM
The 5950 beating the XT made it a dead giveaway as a fake. :)

04-01-04, 01:31 PM
Yeah do you think they would disasemble a sample? It's 01/04/2004the card uses only one molex power connector from what we have seen it now uses 2!

04-01-04, 02:03 PM
Maybe the whole nv40 release is an aprils fool joke :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :screwy: :screwy:

04-01-04, 02:15 PM
Lol this thread got me for a second! Fun stuff on april fools!

04-02-04, 01:37 AM
yea it got me too. but then I realize theres no way the fx5950 is eating a 9800xt, it shouldnt even eat a 9700 pro in dx9
