well to be fair, the 9800 GX2 does have two GPU's. GT200 is a single GPU.
But I do agree that its price isn't exactly making it a good buy.
Anyone else find it wierd that ATI is taking back the AA crown? Before didn't there cards suck with AA turned up? Now they actually out perform nvidia by a good amount with AA.
Yeah, I noticed that. Looks like AA performance is vastly improved.
I have read that the RV770 doesn't use the shaders for AA, unlike R600 and RV670....
Anyway, even with
benchmarks out now that are most likely legitimate, it is still kinda hard to judge performance.
It could be at least partially to do with drivers (on both sides), but you see a lot of variation with the new cards. A different game and different settings is so often showing a quite different performance scenario.
I think it's probably best to wait until all the cards officially release, so we can make better comparisions.
though IMO, the RV770 cards are perfect for multi-GPU setups. They're cheap, pretty low on power considering their performance, and crossfire usually seems to scale well.
the GT200 may get the top end of performance, though they might have to watch out for the 4870 X2 - at least as far as single GPU cards go, if you can count R700 as a single GPU. To the system, it should appear like one GPU....
Nvidia gets better FPS on DX10
That's a very general statement.
