New BFG Tech 5900U Review
 
I've put the wraps on my review of the BFG Technologies Asylum™ GeForce™ FX 5900 Ultra here at nV News. Mike will be posting it on the site sometime this coming Sunday (8.3.03) evening.

So give us a mini-preview. Does it flicker? Sorry i had to ask.

I just cant get over the flicker thing, and I dont think ive seen it mentioned in one GFFX review yet. I'm not sure i can trust reviews anymore at all cause obviously if you review it bad, then you might not get any more samples.

That should not be an influencing factor in telling the truth when judging hardware, it seriously shouldn't. :(

I couldn't wait any longer and went ahead and got a eVGA 5900 Ultra, I flashed the card to the performance bios ( 500/900 ) and I have never had one flicker. It must be something, but I haven't had any with a Epox 8RDA................Tom

No problem. No, I did not experience any flickering. Though I know that Volt's Prolink 5900 non Ultra does. I really had no problems at all with this card from BFG.

Also, I ran the entire review with the card clocked at ...

Core Clock: 500
Memory Clock: 926

...and it was rock solid stable.

I hope this review doesnt spur any "controversial" issues people have been having lately

i'd like to know which detonator drivers where used in the review & if theres any bechmark difference between them & what drivers do you think works best with 5900 Ultra .

I used the 44.03 drivers. If enough interest I might append review in some select benches with different version(s).

hi, does it make a wierd noise when scrolling on ie/mirc, resizing windows, maximizing etc?

it's a faint noise 5900 reported which seems to originate from the card itself (voltage regulation it seems)

thanks

Wow! I was just about to return my card after I heard those noise... but it only appear when I use analogue audio output on my audigy 2, when I switch to digital DIN output, the noise disappeared :rolleyes:

Thanks for the info
