Default Re: Any news on 55nm GTX series???

I do not think 4870X2 sells well. It is too power hungry, too hot, does not work in all games, ATI makes (unstable) drivers for it, and is pricey. Majority a lot of people will prefer single-GPU solutions. Also, 2x GTX 260 is the same price as 4870X2.

Single GPUs: I do not see a reason why most people would prefer 4870 over GTX 260+.

You can get an old GTX 260 on Newegg now for 200usd with rebate. Overclocked to 660-700 that's a great card for 1920x with AA.

From someone who's owned the card, you don't know what you're talking about.

The card sells very well; it works in just about every game; it is no more "power-hungry" than 260 SLI is; ATI's drivers are NOT unstable; and it is not that pricey for the performance that you get.

The strongest card prior to the 4870X2 was the 8800GTX. Those sold for 650$ on launch day. The X2 is about 4x as strong and sold for 550$ on launch day. The X2 is a fine value for the money.

I think ATI 4870x2 is a good card and it will run with a good 650 watt power supply ,so it not that power hungry.It just been so long since ATI has been on top.But it is still a duall GPU no manner waht anyone says.But is is the fastest single slot card you can buy.

Charlie is an idiot. The new Quadro FX5800 uses a 55nm G200 clocked higher than the stock 65nm GTX 280 and uses DRAMATICALLY less power than the 65nm GPU and it's available on sale already. So much for FUD, eh Charlie the ATI ass kisser?

Quadro FX 5800

* 52 billion texels/s
* 4GB GDDR3 @ 800MHz
* 189W TDP

GTX280

* 48.2 billion texels/s
* 1GB GDDR3 @ 1107MHz
* 236W TDP

If you want a card now, I'd wait and see when the 55nm cards will be launched. But if you're in no rush, I'd wait for the Nvidia DX11 hardware instead next year.
