Looks like Nvidia just won't stop pounding ATI into the ground.
Yup, such a viscous creature Nvidia is. Thanks to the xbox 360 ATI won't go out of business so they will have the future to try to outdo nvidia. The x1800xt is really the only ATI card that looks worthwhile since its rival, the 7800GTX 512 is 150-180 bucks more. As for the regular 7800GTX vs the x1800xt, the xt is 100-120 more but boasts twice the memory for future games and the benchmarks vary. Like with F.E.A.R......Some sites show the 7800gtx having an advantage and some show ATI having the advantage. There are games out whose performance is significantly raised by 512mb, and seeing as the xt is way more affordable than the gtx 512, ATI puts its foot in the door. I expected much more from each of them though, hopefully we will see some significant gains with the next gen of cards though......I am still waiting for that 90nm and 32 extra powerful pipelines. Now I am looking forward to that, DX10, unified shader, newer pixel shaders exc.
I have a feeling I will once again be disapointed.
