Not very suprising. Endless battle of technology. Give it a month before a newer better one is released.

Ah, its just going to go on and on. I would say the 8800GTX is going to drop to about $200 to $300 by late October of this year and possibly a 9800GTX will come out this November if not replaced by another series. The R600 will probably follow the same cycle.

I think these new flagships will be around for a while. They still haven't touched on the mid/low-range DX10 market. I'm expecting to see overclocked revisions, and maybe a GDDR4 Nv card by around May.

Those benchmarks aren't very conclusive of that 48% claim. I'm sure it will be much better in some games, but in others the differance will be subtle. Anyway I'm sure a 8900GTX will be out shortly after the R600, becuase nVidia lieks to spoild its competitors launches. An 8800GTX running around 725/2000MHz will pwn the R600 as is. Ati's second DX10 generation card will be a force to be recond with IMO.

I don't really care about the HIGH END right now, because it's way out of my reach. I'm looking forward to seeing their mainstream counterparts.

Just recently XFX released a factory overclocked "XXX" version of their 8800GTX which matches the 2000mhz memory clock of the X1950XTX and exceeds it's core clock by 30mhz (for a total of 630).

I took a pencil and shaded in the resistors and I got my 7600GT past the XXX version.

How much more of an overclock did you get from doing that?

I think I need to reshade now, but I got a 70MHZ core increase and a .12GHZ memory core increase.

I'm sorry to bump old threads but I feel this is relevant.
(Nice overclock BTW Loser777 oh and its not "memory core", memory doesn't have a processor on it.
Here is some pictures of the R600:

I don't think will will come close to fitting in my case, not to mention the 8800GTX.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Can't wait to see this card in action though.

That is supposedly the OEM verion ( for compaies like Dell/Alienware) who make custom cases anyway. There will be a retail version which will be 4 inches smaller.
I also heard a rumor it is due out next weekend. :clap:

I'm going to need a new PSU. I think the next generation of cards will have a separate plug to go into a wall socket.

They'll be 8-pin standard pretty soon, but the r600 is suppose to allow either 6 or 8. However, if you go with 6, the overdrive through CCC will be locked.
The card you found is supposedly the Mac version.
And here's another for Dellien Ware, Vodoo, etc.

Most are saying it'll be a March launch though.

Thats the "OEM" version for all manufacturers. Also there will rpobbaly be some kind of power converter for 8-pins.

In the picture I don't see an hdmi output anywhere. One of the major reasons I'm getting this card is for the hdmi, which I read was going to be included according to Tom's Harware.
