Default Nvidia's New GF100 Dissected and Performance "Preview"

From the way the article is written, nothing should be taken TOO seriously, but the long story short is that preliminary testing shows that a single GF100 Fermi is "67%" faster than existing GTX 285 cards:

NVIDIA GF100 Fermi Architecture and Performance Preview - GF100 Fermi Details Emerge - Legit Reviews

...something to think about for people that spend big $$$$$'s on systems like me....

32x AA? Would that actually be noticeable?

what does it matter? I mean anything on the 4850/gtx 260 level can max pretty much any game out right now..so what's the point of anything past that? lol

Well, my signature does not represent my current system fully.... only difference being that i have a 1920x1200 monitor powered by two 9800 gts in SLI.

As for the 32X AA, I don't even know why that would be necessary since at the resolution I play with it off and have a great picture.

to wafflehammer, i think it's more (although never really possible) a future-proofing solution. I had a 8800 gtx FOREVER and have only in the past year sold it for an SLI setup. I bet the fermi will run everything out now, and at least a year and a half to two years well.

I hope not...I hope they come with some better freaking games that give these cards a challenge.

I really do not see it happening.....most everything is just ported over.

The only real reason to have alot of power is to run at very high resolutions and multiple monitors.

Yeah, I doubt it too...but it's to be expected, I mean why make games that are only capable of being played by 1% of PC gamers with their $300+ GPU setups. If the tech was affordable, I think the games would come. Also, piracy doesn't help any of us.

with these new cards running 3 monitors each

it's going to push the limits

1 1920*1080 monitor = ~ 2 million pixels
3 = over 6 million pixels

that's demanding!

and nVidia's camp has to run them at even higher FPS for 3D simulation
