Is the FX5800 teh best?
 
I was just wondering which is better out of the Radeon 9800 Pro or the FX5800 Ultra, I assume teh 5900 will own them all. Are nVidia making a comeback?

9800 Pro

Heck, the 9800 Pro is often on par with the FX 5900, and the 5800 gets totally owned.

9800 Pro is slower than FX 5900, but its IQ is also better.

The Radeon 9800 Pro is definitely better than the FX 5800 Ultra.
While the new FX 5900 Ultra beats Radeon 9800 Pro in majority of the tests, it loses in pixel shader 2.0 performance.

actually the 9800 Pro beats the 5900 Ultra.

I own the 5900 Ultra to back up my statements.

fx5800 ultra is the best nvidia gaming card you can buy on the market now.
9800pro is supposed to be in the same class of fx5900 ultra.
under dx9 specification, 9800pro beats fx cards horribly, unfortunely, there is no dx9 game yet. nvidia prepared Doom3 benchmark shows that fx cards may do very well against 9700/9800 pro with proprietary opengl extension, since neither Doom3 nor dx9 games are out, its hard to tell how much better 9800pro really is in real dx9 games, its hard to tell how good fx really is in their proprietary opengl extension.
comparing 9800pro to fx5800 ultra is like comparing fx5800 ultra to 9500pro in my eyes. So 9800pro is overall better if you dont have any special reason to stay with nvidia, like linux or cg applications.

I guess nv40 will be the first time we will be able to tell if nVidia are making a comeback.

They could make a compback though already by sorting out their drivers so they are completely above board, robust and very fast. That would be a good start Also maybe an announcement by the company on a new policy in regards to benchmarking.
