Default What market is the 5300, 5750, and 5900 PCI Express aimed at?

They're all 128 mb versions and available in very few numbers at many stores. Remnants of a bygone era? Excess inventory?

Well IMO the primary importance for these was the PCI-E support . now since they got replaced with the new GeForce 6 series , only the price factor remains .

Initially there were no PCI Express cards from NV when the PCI E laucned in the 915 and 925 chipsets so, a bridged solution was released.

And please start a thread in the right section.

Yep, they were intended as a filler for the still-born PCIe market. I believe both NVidia and Ati overextimated the impact of PCIe on the market. It may be part to the poor showing of Intel own 9xx chipset line and hi cost of DDR2.

It came 6 months after the scheduled debut and for the first 6 months it didn't generate much revenue. This has also led to stocks of unsold PCie cards from Ati and Nvidia that are, by all means, obsolete. I'm sure retailers love this.

the 5300 was aimed at the 2d market, the 5750 at the 'I want to play a few games, but mostly I didn't want to buy the 5300', and the 5900 was aimed at the 'I'm sticking to nV because I know this card has guts, even if the guts were put in backwards'.

They are indeed obsolete. They were an interim solution.

btw msyxz, where did your tualatin go?

It has been transferred to my 2nd PC which I mostly use for large internet downloads or as server during lan parties.

My P4 came form a dismantled laptop. Usually laptop chips are the best of the crop. Mine can reach 3 GHz w/o overvolting before getting a bit unstable. It's also watercooled not for the sake of overclocking but because I like the sound of silence

You're kidding? What's the highest stock volt 100% stable OC you get out of it? At this 3.0 is it really stable? (could be your mobo the prob btw... I find mine to be a big touchy)

(me it's 142%, I know its good, but I wanna know yours!) 2.4@3.4

As I said P4 intended for the mobile market are usually are handpicked and better than the CPUs for the desktop segment. Highest stable frequency I can reach is about 3 GHz (150MHz bus, the Asus P800 let you increase the FSB at 1 MHz intervals). Highest temp after several repeated runs of PIfast is usually 45-46 deg, voltage is 1.525V stock, although the Asus boards are known to provide a little higher voltage.
