Geforce 6800 Ultra / NV40 Reviews
My preliminary conclusion:
* not (much) faster on 'normal' resolutions (<= 1024*1280) than the 9800XT or if it is faster, the 9800 is still fast enough
* consumes 50% more power than current high end cards (75W vs. ~110W)
* image quality is better than GF FX series, but equal or worse (FarCry pretty much sucks) than the ATI 9800 series.
in my humble opinion only a good buy for someone who doesn't mind noise, has plenty of money and likes to play everything on 1600*1200.
you are semi correct.
if you don't enable any goodies (FSAA / AF) then sure, the 9800XT still kicks *** in 1024x768x32bit.
but then let's up the anty, enable those IQ settings with recent games (Halo/FarCry) and you'll see a nice rift starting to appear and the NV40 pulling away.
the PSU demands are crazy. just plain crazy.
OCZ's 600Watt PSU doesn't look that over-the-top now does it? ;)
I'd like to see a website try to run the NV40 on a 300Watt powered system and see what happens.
Error screen :)
The NV40 in ur AGP slot recuires to much power :)
I ( the powerbox ) can't deliver that kinda power :)
please ugrade ur pc haha
Nice performance but it sucks that i need to buy a new power supply :(.
I just gonna wait till the reviews of the r420 (and power consumption) and wait a while till the prices drop a bit.
I can play every game with my GF4ti4200 , maybe some games on low but hey you don't see me care :)
I sure hope the 2003 score is a true score and not the lovechild nv40 & a driver "optimalization".
3DM03 score effect can also be seen in Halo and Farcry, or any other bench/game which uses shaders and DX9 "stuff" ;)
hmm. looks like hardocp clocked their server procs to 4ghz again.:rolleyes: :D
The Hexus review is indeed promesing. it sheds a different light on the matter than previous articles i've read.
24k 3D01 marks at stock speed. :o
