Default Just as I expected

Reviews for the NV31/nv34 are comming up (3dgpu and bjorn3d), and as I expected, their performance is nice.

The thing I really like is the overclocking potencial, with core speeds for the nv31 as high as 400mhz and ram speed of >700.

Actually, I think the performance is very disappointing. Barely faster than a Ti4200, crap AA modes, probably benched with Aggressive or Balanced AF enabled, and tested on very high-end CPUs. Vertex shading is sloooow, too, so testing on slower CPUs could be important (how many 3Ghz CPU owners are going to run out and buy one of these cards?).

The nv34 does beat the geforce4mx and that speaks well for it.
The thing is that I don't think it can beat the Radeon9200, so its only "marketing" advantage will be DX9 support.

As for the nv31 I also think it will not perform as well as the Radeon9600, altough the radeon9600 is supposed to be slower than the radeon9500.

I have to disagree that their performance is nice. The Ti4600 spanks (w/out AA/Aniso) or is essentially equal (except 3DMark) to the 5600 Ultra in virtually every test at Bjorn3D (4600 wins 8, NV31 wins 7, they both tie 1). Without AA/Aniso, the Ti4600 beats the overclocked NV31. The 5200 Ultra is better than the MX460, but it doesn't take much to be better than that card. Anyway, they're somewhat nice with AA/Aniso enabled and with overclocking potential, but other than that.....

If the NV31 is cheaper than the Ti4600, which is available for ~180 now in some places, when it comes out, then it will be a great deal.

The 5600 ultra holds it's own against the 9500pro so it should be right with tthe 9600.

Don't think so, the 9500pro beats the ti4600 in almost every test I've seen, so the geforcefx5600 won't even touch it.

What are you talking about? Read a decent review. The 5600 ultra beats the 9500pro in about 40% of the benches with 4XAA and 8XAF. That is what counts the AA and AF.

If this is what counts then bear in mind that the AA modes are not at all comparable at equal samples and that the 5200 and 5600 are both being benched with Aggressive AF enabled (can you say bilinear filtering?).

Take that 5600, run it with 4/8x Application AF and 4x AA and compare its score against a 9500 with 2x AA and 4/8x Quality AF and then see who wins. The 9500 will eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it's no one's fault but Nvidia's that they haven't improved their AA in years and that their AF is slooow unless running in bilinear or 2.5linear (aggressive and balanced, respectively) mode.

Default different FX transistor counts??!!

WTF??!! I just looked at extremetech's review of the Geforce
FX line and besides all 5200 and 5600 FX's getting thoroughly thrashed I noticed that in their table of GPU features the FX 5200 has a lower transistor count than the FX 5600 which has a lower count than the mythic FX 5800. What gives?? I thought all Geforce
FX's use the same core and have the same transistor count. It
looks to me like the 5600 and 5200 don't have the same functionality as the FX 5800.

You should note that was in benchmarks that are highly optimised for NVIDIA cards, SS SE for example. Everyone knows ATi can't even touch NVIDIA in that game. Me I was greatly disappointed and think I will just stick with my Ti4400. I thought the Ti5600 was pathetic in Comanche 4 where it got completly trashed by the Radeon 9500Pro; hell it's doesn't even seem playable on that card! Iíve got a bad feeling about the 9600Pro now

Mainstream my @ss!!!
It SU><S big

You need to read that review again. Why would you lie like this? The 5600 does not get trounced. It loses to the 9500pro in about 60% of the benches and beats it at the extremes AA and AF in about 40%. Yah that is a real trouncing.
