Supposedly its only four days away, and I cant wait! Although I cant seem to find a price for the GTX version. CompUsa already has the GT on its website though!

Does anybody know how this will compare in performance to the 7800GT?

The clockspeeds seem pretty weak, but i thought this was still supposed to have 24 pipeliens?

judging by the clock speeds, I would say it has more than 24 pipelines. otherwise it wouldn't be different to a 7800 GTX

It is designed to replace the 7800GTX with the same performance for a cheaper price. It has 24 pipes and 450MHz core clock and 1300Mhz memory.

The X1900XTX and the X1900XT will beat out the 7900GTX and for a much cheaper price. After the cuts it should drive the X1900XT price down even further.

Ya the GT will have 24 pipelines, but the GTX will have 32. I dont think the XL1900 will beat the 7900...it has double the pipelines, although the 1900 is a very good card and just dropped below 500 bucks, I hope nvidia matches it.

Seems a little week, why didn't they give it a higher core clock speed, or are they saving that for the 8800GT?

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Why do people keep saying the GTX will have 32! That was just a fricken rumor! It has 24 people! 24!

Ok... I'm calm now.

How could the 32 pipelines be a myth? Ive read dozens of articles saying 32 over and over again, and if the GTX did only have 24 why would they even produce it? The GT has the same about with less ram and a lower clock speed, but look at the 7800. GT has like 16 I believe, the GT has...22? Something around there, I know im off a bit though.
