It worked earlier... I managed to read the whole thing.

It basically said that the NV38 was a pretty good card if they can keep the price a $100 below the 9800XT - they were pretty evenly matched apart from in heavy shader based titles. Their conclusion was that the extra shader performance on the 9800XT wasn't worth an extra $100.

The NV36 (FX5700) on the other hand was a completely different beast, it managed to beat the 9600XT in nearly every test - by quite a margin in some, and looked to be a really good deal if the price is kept at $199. Much more bang for buck than the equivalent ATI card. It is also the first chip to come from IBM. Also it looks to be a overclockers dream, I think they managed to get it to 500/1100 without a problem.

The PCB layout is identical to the NV30, which begs the question of why the NV30 cost so much? Either NV made a huge profit on it or they are taking a loss on the 5700...

I never signed any NDA :D

Sorry about it only being in Swedish, the graphs speak for themselves though.
English translation will be up later on today or realy on tomorrow (well at least before the other NDA-signing sites will have theirs online in any case I hope. :) )

our site has a problem with dying at connection just try again and it will show up and at normal speed :)
we installed some new stuff to measure statistics but apparently it wasnb't meant for sites of our kind of size, the log was filled with 3.7 million entries in one single day and just bogged down the whole server ;)

nice review!! Man I wish I could read some Swedish though as I always like to read the editors thoughts :-)

SurfMonkey 10-22-03 11:53 AM

I checked in my web cache just in case it had cached the ixbt page but, alas, it had only cached the graphics...

So I've got some pretty pictures of the 5950 and 5700 and of some icky rendering errors produced by both the NV and ATI cards. Shadermark under the Cat 3.8's looks... interesting :D

500/1100 Holy *Beep*... :eek:

Why O why did Ati do 300mhz ram? I just dont get it. I really think that ATi may need to take some Steroids or something. Their Tetosterone levels are way to low for a knock out Fight with Nvidia right now. They need some serious Rocky Balboa action. "Yo Adrian" with the 500/500 mid range card hehehe..

Never happen.. at least not till next year sometime.. :(
