You have to love the folks who drool over any details.... "NVIDIA'S next generation graphic remains a well protected secret. We still managed to get some information about it, despite that."

They managed to get a number, G70 (which was revealed by peeking inside the latest 7x.xx series graphics driver), and G80. Everything else in the article is surmise, and they think they got info?

BTW, just to prove that ATI and nVidia corporate officials are nicer than ATI and nVidia fans....

http://www.hexus.net/content/review...mlld19JRD0xMDUz

nVidia attended ATI's birthday celebration at CeBit, and ATI came to nVidia's "party" (party just to party, that sounds like a New Mexico thing).

now if we can only get Intel, AMD, and Apple to work out their differences....

Apple uses Intel RAID controllers in the XServe, and used to use some AMD logic chips in various stuff..

And the battle of the pro cards!! Three way knockout (4 way if you include your wallet, but that is the first to go down).

The ATI's older card is not only expensive, but gets creamed by the 3D labs card for less.

No, I am not getting one.... just thought folks would like to see what about $4500 worth of two cards looks like. Note the review, didn't perform any faster for games, but did have noticeable improvements for professional products... thus the reason for the two families of cards. This is the first review that has compared gaming cards to pro cards in pro tests and gaming tests, I am glad to see it.

TARDS!!! They're comparing a 6800 to a FX4000 chip and saying although they look the same, there are some subtle hardware differences. They are the exact same freaking GPU!!! Well, I guess how something was soldered on the back makes a slight hardware difference.

Good article though. Thanks.

I hope that Apple offers an AGP card with 2 GPUs and 512+ Megs of RAM for my comp. I'm not into forking out the dogh for a PCI-E Mac, which should be out this summer.

actually, there are card differences, that is where everyone gets confused. Such as higher speed DVI, DVI Dual link, etc. Most people still think the card does nothing, the GPU does everything. Components do matter, especially in the video output options. But otherwise they are the same GPU.

Exactly the same GPU, but I see what you're saying about the board thing. And you have talked about how workstation cards generally get the latest tech first.

I would love a FX4000 in my Mac and for Apple to release one, especially a SLI version. But since I don't do high-end dynamics, nor do I own Maya Unlimited, then it would be an overkill for what I do with Maya Complete. But in a few years, I'll probably need a workstation card.

I like that this article pointed outt that a 6800 is faster thern a X850 in Maya, that's important to me though. Because i'm selfish. Now hopefully Tiger and OGL 2.0 on the Mac will help bring our performance up to par with the PC side.

An endless growth cycle... and to think my boss in 1995 told me not to specialize in 3D graphics because it was a fad that would end.

Your boss was smoking cra... The irony of it all, now that 3D GPUs are replacing 2D GPUs for everything.

G70 rumors are starting to surface now that the Sony PS3 specs are final. Plus nVidia did a black-box demo at E3.... 7800GTX. Claiming to have doubled again, as well as jumping to 64bit (each color) wide pipes. 6800 doubled performance and jumped to 32bit wide (each color) at the same time...

Can they do it again? And do you think double precision color is needed? I know the answer, but like to hear others speak. ATI claims 24bit (each color) is all that is needed, ever.
