Woot! 5800U arrives!
 
I just got a PNY 5800 Pro. So far I've noticed:
It's a little slower at UT2004. 10X7 4X8X 60s-70s instead of 70s-80s I got with 9800 Pro.
Not as noisey as I expected.
Noticeably worse at Far Cry, oh well, didn't buy it for DX9 games. :afro:

Just threw it in and changed drivers, no format yet. :thumbsup:

BTW-it's as I expected. Without the framecounter on, I wouldn't hae known the difference at UT2004.

Don't buy that hype "ATI AA is superior" BS

BeheLIAR, have you actually had both cards? Or are you just yet another "Well I read a review and looked at some magnified still shots" expert? :nono:

Like I said, I've used your card 16/17 months, so I have a pretty good idea how it works. How many months have you used my card that you can make a comment?

Hey I used a 5800 Ultra for 5 months. Trust me, compared to my 9800 Pro.. Hell, it shouldn't even be compared!!

Oh, and FarCry defaults to DX8 mode on that 5800. UT2004 isn't so much graphics intensive as some other games, as it is memory/processor... so it makes sense it runs about the same.

Why should I trust you, when I can look at it my self???

Actually Jakup did have a 5800 Ultra for the longest time. Anyway, Why does it have to be argued? ATi currently has multi sampling AA thats a bit better than Nvidias, Nvidia currently has AF thats a bit better than ATIs *shrug*

Wow.. You sound like me 1 year ago trying to defend that P.O.S. card. Just give up already.

Have fun trying to cram Far Cry and Doom3 down a 128bit memory bandwith.

I really dont think the card is a piece of ****, But compared to a 9800 Pro? Just doesnt have the bandwith or the shader power.

Anyway, You shouldnt be so spiteful jakup, :) you know there are legitimate reasons to prefer one IHV over another :)

Re: Woot! 5800U arrives!
 
Yes, yes I know :) But going from a 5800 Ultra, to a 5900, then a 9800 Pro, I just really cant see going backwards. Yes, I will agree, my NV card had some fine AF. Very nice. Its AA sucked though... anything above 2X looked exactly like 2X.

So far the only benchmarks I've seen show the 5800 Ultra mopping the floor with the 9800Pro at medium quality, and beating the 9800 Pro at high quality.

LOL, all on 128bit memory. How do you think that happened Jakup?

It's interesting how vehemently you defend the 9800 Pro now.

FarCry? Oh well, it plays better on ATI. So far I'm not overly impressed with it.

I use 4x9tap or 4xS, Some games I use 4x, Because on Chars legs theres a big difference, Because the jaggeds are so vertical.

Its dependent on Game.

But IMO quincunx does better job on horizontal edges than 4x :O
