    Yep, I was right - HKEPC (or whatever it's called) did a review and it is NV44 with a 64bit bus. The card they tested was made by Galaxy, and had 450Mhz core, 700Mhz memory and came out slightly faster than a 32mb Turbo Cache 6200, and similar to the X550, despite the latter having 128-bit bus.

    Hopefully Anandtech will post a review soon, seeing as they covered the TurboCache cards so well a while back. :)

    Do you guys have the x800XT Master Card?

    We only take American Express.

    I was just thinking - maybe the 6500 will be NV44 and so have a 64-bit bus. That would fit in with keeping the costs down and also the use of 700Mhz memory and 400Mhz core (higher than the 6600le) - with 128mb of it's own memory the card might fall somewhere between a 32mb TurboCache and full 128-bit/128mb 6200 NV43? The reason I'm thinking this is because if it were NV43 with a 128-bit bus, there would be no reason to get the 6600le for the average user?? Just a thought.... I'd like to hear what anyone thinks. :) Reply

    I was curious which core I have with my X800 so I installed Everest and it tells me I have an R430. That with a core of 400MHz and mem at 980MHz in my Gigabyte suggest I don't have a GTO. It's getting hard to figure what one buys when going with ATI.

    This is really getting embarrassing for ATI. Nvidia is slapping the shxx out of them.

    huh?


    Is this what Kristopher is referring to?

    http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_sliAA_howto1...">SLI Antialiasing: Redefining Image Quality

    quote:

    Using the latest driver, SLI customers can enable SLI8x and SLI16x Antialiasing for any game.

    SLI Antialiasing is enabled using Coolbits*. The next driver release will make SLI Antialiasing a permanent feature in the NVIDIA Control Panel.


    Current "SLI ready" GeForce 6800s ( http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/article/17...">This connector is actually available on all PCI-E GeForce 6800 series graphics cards ) will become SLI X6800GTs? GeForce PCIe 6800GTs are being advertised as http://www.xpcgear.com/6800gtslipcie.html">"SLI Ready".

    But what's the difference? Who can afford one let alone two? :P

    $840 in graphics cards! :o

    That's more than I spent on my mobo, CPU, and memory combined way back when P4Cs, ICH5, and dual channel memory were brand new.

    X800GT got incredible resentment ???

    WTF are you talking about? Man, you seriously lost touch with reality! Well OBVIOUSLY sales figures tell a different story now don't they?! Maybe now you'll stop reviewing those darn 7800GTXs and start with something more reasonable like X800 vanilla 128/256MB and compare it to sth more reasonalbe as well, so we can see how it compares to what we got, not what we will never have!

    What the hell's going on with ATi anyway. I mean hellooooo, we need some competition here!!!

    Perhaps you didn't get the "from our readers" part of that quote? X800GT/GTO got incredible resentment from most of AnandTech's readers because the parts are really rebadged higher end chips, and frankly they don't perform well enough to make them worthwhile. Think the X800GT sounds good? That's a slower than X800 core with more memory bandwidth, at the same price as an X800. The X800GTO is actually the same performance as an X800, only with one of a variety of cores used inside.

    http://www.anandtech.com/talkarticle.aspx?frmResou...">I think these comments show a lack of support, don't you? Sales figures are often influenced by OEM purchases, and Dell/HP/etc. are probably jumping all over parts that cost $5 less than an X800 and perform slower. Knowledgeable computer users would rather spend the extra $5.

    Well Kris, normally your prose is sparkling but I have to bring up one pet peeve which is one word that businesspeople (in particular) tend to misuse. The "philosophy" of SLI? SLI is not a philosophy, it's a technology. Or at best it's, let's say a "strategy."

    hehe, everyone misuses "philosophy," I just appreciate the opportunity to take it out on someone. :)

    The new X850 XT Master Card is only 400MHZ??? but with 100MHZ more memory bandwidth? Reply

    So what do I do with my X800XL now? Reply

    Keep it until it's outdated... like any other video cards you've owned. You'll be set for a while, I'm still content with my 9800 pro. I can still play every game out there with graphics on at least medium settings (BF2 and F.E.A.R only games I need to do this for so far). Reply
