Default NV30 Benchies

May be fake but I'm posting them here for those interested in speculating nevertheless...

Fake, it's simply speculation.

The page before that about the specs of each GPU is incorrect. That proofs they got no fact.

Example: They say the NV30 will have 1024 static instructions for the vertex shader.

nVidia officially said a few days ago in a paper that it will have 256 static instructions.

And since when do the R300 got dynamic flow control and 128bpp?

Also, the NV30 will have a max temp storage of 64 and NOT of 96!


Their benchmarks are most likely based on rumors. For example, the 2.5x figure for Quake 3 is based on a rumor everyone heard about i think.

The Pixel Shader test is the normal one, not the advanced one. There is not a SINGLE chance there's such an increase in that test. In the advanced one, who knows. But there, certainly not!

It's just a joke. You don't believe nVidia is really going to ship their first test boards to Czechoslovakia do you?

They won't, 'cos there's no longer such country as Czechoslovakia

It looks as though they have taken the info that appeared on Reactor Critical and extrapolated it into a set of tests.

26K+ Madbunion marks would probably require a mental processor (4Ghz+) as it is pretty CPU bound.

The interesting bit was the timeframes they gave for releases:

NV31(MX equiv) - NV35(Ti equiv) - 2003-2004.
NV40 - 2005.


Wonder where they got that info from?

Cool PCPOP NV30 Benchmarks!!!

Howzit all,

Well what do u know. PCPOP is claiming to have NV30 benchmark results. Sound kinda fishy??? Anyway here is the link for all to see.

If those results are true then Ati is in serious trouble......

Those graphs are actually taken from some other foreign site that wrote up that article on August 6th. (Before Nv30 even taped out...) They're fake, but no harm done.

Or, you can just wait for NV30 and save your money in the meantime, since you already have a good graphics card. Sheesh... That's a lot of dough to spend on just one silly thingy. You're already losing money on your old card if you decide to sell it.
