Default Re: Geforce GTX 280 Performance, Price and Pictures!

My 2x8800GTS have scored well over 16000 in 3dmark 06 @ 1280x1024 I'm starting to doubt whether I should upgrade or not.

Anyone knows what the prices might be like?

GTX 280 should score 16,xxx 3DMark 06 at 1280x1024 so it seem to be a driver issue so hope Nvidia will improve it in future driver. GTX 260 numbers are looking good.
In the high resolutions with AA/AF the scores are around a 47-58% higher than on the 8800 Ultra, so, guess what, the card is bounded by the memory bandwidth (145 GB/s vs 100 GB/s = 45% +-).

So, it looks like it is not going to be enough for 1920x1200 with SSAA 2x

wow the numbers are descent, i was hoping the GTX 280 would get 100% increase over the 8800 ultra in all test, especially the extreme test.

Maybe with better drivers it may.

If it's gonna cost anything like it the rumors suggest ($600-700) I can't see it being worth an upgrade. If I want an improvement over my current rig I'd need to get two GTX's and that's alot of money just to play crysis.

I'm gonna hold out and see how ATI do with the X2 or even the 55nm GTX280. Prices should be lower then.

EDIT: In fact the new GTX280 is slower than the current 3870X2 (at least in 3DM) and probably the GX2. The new 4870X2 is gonna kick it's ass and for <$500.

I think that the GDDR3 memory is holding the true performance of this chip.

As i always have stated here, you need a monster bandwidth to run monster resolutions with AA/AF. Shading power is useful when you aren't bandwidth bounded.

The memory bandwidth of a gfx card is like a gold ingot. (do not mention the R600 please)

I just can hope that the 55nm refresh features GDDR5 with a 512bit bus -> 300 GB/s

AMEN to that, hence i'll wait for the 4870X2 to come out before i make a decision!

im wondering what kind of performance boost the memory share tech is going to have?

I just hope that ATI's RV770 will wipe the floor with nvidia's GTX280.

When is RV770 due out? I am talking about Radeon 4870X2 specifically.

4870 is due on the 26th of June while the 4870X2 is slated for an August release. Hopefully we will see a preview of the 4870X2 with the release of the 4870 to see if it's worth the wait.
