XFX released a 5700Ultra with GDDR3 at 500MHz and dual DVI. It would be nice to throw also this card in the upcoming review...

Why the DDR3 version? Would it be worthwhile to compare the XFX 5700 Ultra with DDR II, just like the FX 5800 Ultra?

DDR2 version is stock clocked at 450MHz and the RAM has different timing. 6600GT vs 5700U (same RAM, same frequency) would be a true apple 2 apple comparsion with the card it's going to replace.

Nobody still sells 5800U's new, however, BFG has had some 'refurbs' in stock for quite a while here is a link:

...thinking $225 is a tad steep for a 'refurb'- no wonder they still have them!

Something must be wrong with that 5700 ultra. I have a 5700 U and a barton 2800+ and I run about 45fps (often going to 60fps). I am playing 800x600 with HIGH details, remember this uses 8x AF. I just dont see how your framerate is so low with medium detail. I really wanted to get a new video card before doom 3 came out but this card has proven its self and I think I can hold out until I go PCI express.

I think part of it was using 53.03 drivers. Now that I finally got 61.77 stable on my machine, the 5700 Ultra performance seems to have improved from 14-24 to 29-54 fps.

The 5800 holds its own util it meets FX5900 and R9800. It is roughtly the same performance as the 5900XT, having slightly faster raw fill rate but slower fragment operations. Would certainly be prefered to the 5600 and 5700 which it nearly doubles in performance in some tests. However, it is no longer good value as a cheap out of stock product due to the current offerings.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

Cool Re: FX 5800 Ultra pwns FX 5700 Ultra

pwned used for owned comes from a famous typo from somewhere that I can't recall. It's used to convey a hip connotation, to lighten the mood for everyone who doesn't need it explained.

I titled the thread with "pwned" in humor, because as owner of both cards, I win and lose no matter which card is on top.
