I'll be gaming on a 17-19 inch LCD screen.

NO ONE has the 8800 GT which sucks.

Yes ATI is releasing tomorrow but whether the bastards will have them, I don't know.

You have to get them on pre-order. There are so many 8800GT's on pre-order that when new stock is arriving, it is all being despatched and still not clearing pre-orders. Overclockers UK were expecting lots this week so have a nose over there (http://www.overclockers.co.uk) but it'll be a similar issue. No website will say they have stock until pre-orders have been cleared.

There are concerns that although ATi's cards sound good, they've struggled recently with translating the on-paper impressiveness into the real world and that for this reason, nVidia haven't yet brought out the 9000 series - they don't need to. I'm no fan of ATi but their cards really need to challenge nVidia's properly or we consumers are going to be continually fed tiny revisions of existing hardware. I'm now toying with the idea of not buying a card until the 9000s are released and settled.

I live in Mauritius! which explains why I'm not getting 8800 GT anywhere.



EDIT: Sweey, I managed to find a guy whose got a small company. I just talked to him. He told me he'll need to order it and I'll get it within a week.
I've posted what I'm thinking of buying in the Electronic Problem thread as this thread is for Graphics Cards.

I don't know Gedo. I've watched the(my) national team play only a few times, normally when I felt like sleeping and Liverpool isn't on TV.

Well, that sucks. I thought you were Indian. I even thought Sweey was, but.. he isn't.

What is the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport like? Have you been there? or were you born in the island?

The Macs doesn't sound like a bad idea, I'll be getting that this week.
Looking forward to using my flight simulator, finally.

It's a small airport. Nothing special really. My family is Mauritian but of Indian origin. I always thought you were 15!

Bare in mind that you won't be able to play PES and the like on a MAC unless you use a windows emulator. My elder cousin who's got a mac book uses/used a software to switch between OS. He had both mac and windows installed on separate partitions. I'll find out more and tell you about it.

Now enough of the off-topic.

I thought you were 13, I still think so. Ah, I've got a Macbook, but I'm getting the Macbook Pro. It's Bootcamp, the software that you need to switch OS.

Have you ever been to your motherland? or anywhere else?

nVidia Geforce 8800GT vs ATi Radeon HD 3870:

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3151&p=6

nVidia have announced that the G92-based Geforce 8800GTS is expected to be available from December 3/4 and early rumours suggest that it will match the G80-based 8800GTX and Ultra. It is expected to cost around £210 but nothing is set in stone as yet.

How can someone determine that a graphic card is good?
More pipeline is better?

No.

The Radeon HD 2900 has 320 stream processors (pipelines) and the 8800GTX which always beats it has 128. In addition, the Radeon HD 2900 has a core clock speed of 743Mhz and the 8800GTX a slower 610Mhz. The ATi card also has more memory bandwidth yet the memory clock speed is slower, the fill rate much slower, and it has 2/3 as many ROPs and half as many TMUs as the 8800GTX.

After all of that, take into consideration the fact that both cards deal with graphics in a different way, utilising their chosen processing path which is why ATi have more of some things and less of others and vice versa.

Finally, despite how things look on paper it is real-world performance which counts and while ATi appear to promise a lot from their cards on paper, the performance doesn't quite match up to it.

Confused? Good. It means I'm doing my job.

nVidia announce 8800M series for notebooks; for those of you wanting to waste money on a high-end gaming laptop:

Quote:
Nvidia has introduced its new top-of-the-range GeForce 8M-series mobile graphics processor, as forecast.

The GeForce 8800M GTX and the 8800M GTS both have cores clocked at 500MHz, but while the GTX incorporates 96 Stream processors - what Nvidia calls its unified shaders - the GTS has but 64. Both GPUs connect across a 256-bit bus to no more than 512MB of graphics memory, clocked at 800MHz.

The chips can use memory technologies up to and including GDDR 3.

The two GPUs can also be paired up within a suitable notebook enclosure to work together on rendering scenes using Nvidia's SLI technology. The chips support Microsoft's DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0.

Each has on separate, on-die video processing engine, the VP2, for handling HD codecs like H.264, VC-1, MPEG 2 and WMV 9 decoding. They'll feed dual-link DVI ports to support resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600, more than enough for 1080p HD, which the chips can also generate via analogue TV ports, should notebook makers include them.

Sweey, I'll be buying the 8800GT itself. I've got a question in mind though. After how many years would I need to change a graphics card then? Because spending roughly 160 bucks on a graphics card and needing to get another one after a year would be rather silly.
