I found this to be an interesting read. I really like the dynamic clock in the 7800 that nVidia is useing to keep temps and power down. It seems the 7800 really is based on a totally new architecture.

Hi

dito, thanks!

The 7800GTX really is a great card.

I went ATI (x850XT PE) after i was a bit dissapointed with SLI (2x6800 Ultra Golden Sample). SLI was too "buggy" imho, but damn fast.

And now i have 1 card, which is really fast (like 6800U SLi) , is cool and quiet and works without a flaw! No need for profiles and stuff...

I am very satisfied!

Hm good read, dose make sence, I do belive that Pentium 4's have some part that runs at 'duble' the clock speed or something. Good read, also expalnes why 3dmark05 reports my gpu as 500mhz :cool:

I've not read this yet but did search and noticed that Unwinder isn't mentioned. Has he provided any thoughts about this article?

Interesting read .. looking forward the full interview :cool:

yep i'm still amazed how the 7800GTX is quiet & cool yet fast esp when i compare it to the dual 6800GTs i had!

I wonder what the 90nm G70 derivative on the PS3 has under the hood.

nvidia took the cards to West Coast Customs and said "Pimp My Card" .....we put screens on yo heatsink.

does ati have more catching up to do now?

I guess he wants nVIDIA to reveal the details of thier proprietary technology so the competitors can take advantage of it :rolleyes:

Ya, but not all the details of how it works.a few details to be on a safer side...to knw atleast whats going on with the GPU. Why does it o/c by itself? there should be a lil explanation to it. thats what i meant by "more".

I noticed the nice temps myself. The 6800 ultras I had were at 50 celsius all the time. Now the 7800 gtx are at 40 celsius in the same case as the 6800 ultras. And the noise reduction is awesome. Very nice for the quiet gaming system. the proabably just fire up a system with a 5800 ultra all the time in QA and development to remind themselves to keep it quiet in Nvidia.

And of course you have the ATI guys thinking "NV is pulling a fast one"

it's just human nature. everyone wants to come off as insightful and be accepted by their peers. just look at most pro sports. that team sucks because it's not located close to me like this other team. all those players suck (until they get traded to my team).

All people have to do is look at fillrate tests to see the ALU/Pixel Pipes are clocked @ 430. Its just simple mathematics. Not rocket science. 430 x 24 = 10,300 fillrate. Look at any fillrate tester and these are the results you will get with minimal discrepency.
