Default Re: I Played FarCry with Pixel Shader 3.0

Take a look at the results, you'll see that the X800XT is still CPU limited on a 3.4C at 1600x1200/4xAA/8xAF. Its not reasonable to compare the X800XT's performance on a 3.4C to a 6800U on an FX53 CPU. Even the X800P beats the X800XT with that setup. What is it with all the hostility?

Ok, point taken Tony, I understand what you mean.

Mine is that there are many people out there that have completely ignored any positive showing of the 6800U, and that many of these 'victories' are slim while using 'trylinear' and AA. When brilinear is matched vs. 'trylinear' the gap closes even more so.

Consider a few of these:


Brilinear vs 'trylinear' here

Would you rather someone run some real world benchmarks? I have the 6800, and was informed today that a x800 will be in my hands in the near future. I very rarely take what I see on a website at full face value until I have the hardware myself to try.

Is that X800XT you are talking about? Yes I would like to see the X800 XT vs. the 6800U with just 4xAA at 1200x1600, and the 6800U with the 61.XX using 'brilinear' vs the 'trylinear' of Ati> Setting 1200x1600/4xAA/8xAF, and 4xAA/16xAF. If you have the time and feel like doing it>

These settings are the closest we will be able to get for an 'apples vs apples', and yes I know that is not entirely possible..

I know what you mean, both are great cards, I myself have great difficulty deciding which of the 2 I will get. I've changed my mind many times so far and though I'm currently leaning towards Nvidia's 6800U, I'm still not sure what I will eventually buy. I sell PCs and I get Nvidia cards faster and cheaper than ATI ones, though I still will get an X800XT if I find a good deal.

When I get my x800, I'll do that (even if it's not a XT, I'll make it run like one)

this statement makes perfect sense, and i agree with it.. sometimes it's better to make a simple, accurate statement rather than explaining it to the point of confusion - for yourself and others

i'm gonna have both so i can argue with myself

MaNiaC: man, this x800 rocks! SMwhat! bwahahaha!

CaiNaM: pfft.. a 9800 on steroids.. 3dc? suppose you're gonna go wipe Gabe "the doughnuts are gone.. again!" Newell's arse and beg for the mythical HL2?

MaNiaC: heh.. you're just jealous! i have my card and you don't!

CaiNaM: bah.. they'll ship early may.. err.. mid may.. err.. late may.. err.. june?

MaNiaC: muahahahaha! you've been wtfpwned!!!!

CaiNaM: nah, i'm fine.. ye of little faith. SM3 will make you jealous, it'll be worth the wait.

MaNiaC: d000d!!! those flat rocks freakind ownz d99d!!!!

CaiNaM: hey.. that's beta.. and we haven't even really seen it.. it'll be better. besides, you know with the NEW nv architecture (unlike the ancient r300 crap you have) there's alot more headroom for driver opts & performance increases.. and there will be patches for sm3, and new games coming, and you'll see.

MaNiaC: heh.. ok, daydream all you want.. i'm gonna go enjoy playing Far Cry with 4xaa/8xaf @ 1600x1200 my card NOW. go post something at nvnews.net.. you guys can all daydream about when they'll ship you that 6800 you're waiting for!

heh.. would love a 6800gt to compare with my x800. so.. dang.. when can i buy my 6800?
