Default Re: 3D Mark 05 - the countdown begins!!!!

5900xt has a 256bit memory bandwith I believe. A very good card for the money when it was around $200. At that time a 9800 pro was close to $300

I just can't get too excited over the release of a benchmark. Wake me when its out and the the servers are clear enough to download at normal speeds.
You know, if you don't care why did you click this thread? I'm excited because I wanna see what my card can do. I want to see how it stacks against an X800XT. I want to see the image quality. I think thats reason enough to be excited. 3DMark05 is what the next generation games will look like. 2003 was a pretty decent indicator at what games looked like, Doom3 looks plenty like the Game test 2.
