There will be little or no affect overall. And im not a fan of either or, but... everyone is like, well, wait for R600, well, by the time we wait for R600, then Nvidia's next run of cards will be up soon if not at the same time. And let me reiterrate, im not a fan of either. And stop bashing the guy for an article meant to provide knowledge please.

Quad SLI G80? Thats 1200+ watts. They just said the G80 couldn't be touched by the quad-core = CPU limitation. How would 4x get you anywhere?

I'm an owner of both kinds:
ATI - Cheaper, NOT COOL LOOKING
nVidia - Expensive, COOL LOOKING

BOTH ARE ABOUT SAME STATS

yes.. and that is why dual x1950xtx's hold most of the 3dmark records... because they suck...


and back on track... this thread should actually make ati owners proud.. to me i see it saying.. hey, this 1 card is that **** good.. that it is better than the 2 best single card solutions in crossfire... to me, i'm complimented

What you are saying is not logical at all, and silly
Why it is not fair comparison ??

I think it is a 100% fair comparison because we should compare G80 with the current cards. The R600 is not out yet, and I think it is not fair to compare G80 with a card that hasn't been out yet.

And at the time R600 comes out, nvidia might release G81 (8900)

Do you have proof that R600's will own the G80's ??
R600 is not out yet so how can you know that R600 is better ??

You are an ATI fanboy, and your post is very silly and has no purpose

I disagree with you.
Nvidia cards are not expensive. 7600GT and 7900GS are inexpensive and they are good performer.
