Well, if they really are gonna sell these babies for $199 i'm gonna try one out.
But what other choices do they have? For $299 i doubt that nobody will even touch it.


No, they gotta do a "ATI" here and win the crowd back, or at least take the first step trying to. A kickass card under 200 bucks. Remember 9500 Pro? I doubt that ATI made any money at all of that card but they did become popular among the "mainstreem kids"

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..
DAMN..for a midrange card...that is damn good!

AnteP..

Absolutly FANTASTIC Choice for review settings my man. someone actually benched the cards at the real sweet spot for these monster cards. My personal favorite setings of all time.. 1280x1024 with 4x FSAA and 8-16X AF.

Totally the best blend of Quality and Performance.

Very nice job and good selection of tests that people will be interested in.

True, but I've already seen an AIW 9600 Pro for $220 and I gotta tell you it's a real sweet gaming card. It compares pretty well to a 9700 Pro for gaming, it really does; as well as having a nice stereo tv-tuner built in that has some cool tricks.

But I agree, that 5700 FX looks damned tasty. Looks like there are gonna be some fun mid-range cards this time around.

Thanks mate =)
I have yet another few results that I'll post in a follow up review and I also have result from a game not yet available that I can't post right now (no it's not HL2 or anywhere near as "exclusive" )
results från the overclocked settings will be in that one too etc.

image quality comparisons will probably be posted later on, problem is I have a few other new boards that I have to review first

thanks
unfortunately I don't have a 5700 as of yet but I'll get one really soon

problem is: nvidia never send my review samples or invite me to any press events
so I simply have to get all my stuff from other sources, which sometimes (as in this case with the NV38) can be great and sometimes it means I won't get the boards until a month after launch..

Yeah, i could really use an AIW. Spending way to much time with dear puter atm so why not watch lousy sitcoms here as well?

Augh. When will people stop referring "Serious Sam: The Second Encounter" as "Serious Sam 2"? It is not and never was.
