ATI ships 6 million DX11 cards

Forums - PC Discussion - ATI ships 6 million DX11 cards

OMG... but I went to a Guru3D.com page ans saw... nVidia has more features embedded and software that makes 3D Glasses available and multiple monitors available... I don´t see that on ATI side... I always had ATI cards, more cheap and never needed the extra features... I still own an old AGP X800 XT All in wonders... I hope uprade my PC at the end of the year for a ASUS notebook with the i7 and 5870 video card, but with just 1Gb ddr5... not 1.5gb.. today notebook rules..

MGS4, GH, MW2, GT5p, WipeoutHD, etc..etc..

my 5870 2gig eyefinity 6 is already on it's way as well =)



My "old" GTX260/216 still does the job. I need some games to play on pc though :/

Their multi-monitor tech isn't as good as the one ATI has, 3D Glasses is more a gimmick since it fucks you over with online competition, but their CUDA support is very good since it's been out much longer than ATI Stream. Notebook i7s perform like shit unless you shell out for the best version which is way too much money, and don't expect mobile video chipsets to give you the best performance for the money since they don't match.

 

Side note, the power draw difference in between the new Nvidia cards and ATI cards are like night and day, I'd go ATI as a main card anyday just for that.

hmmm, if only it were cheaper. I would fun out and buy it right now...and i'm not a PC gamer, just a performance junkie.

Actually nvidia does have one, the GTX 480. Look it up on newegg.

Because of yield issues and high losses per unit, Nvidia has produced fewer than 10,000 DX11 cards. And production has ceased, so don't expect more until June brings GF104.

Good luck trying to find one near RRP.

Whats Gf104?

the new revision of the fermi chip that nvidia is working on, to get better yields. but not sure if it will be out that soon to be available in June.

No. That revision is the GF11x line, with GF119 being the first member we know about. That can't come earlier than Q3 since it has yet to tape out and it's at least 6 months from tapeout to product.

GF104 is a Fermi derivative, with fewer shaders. Since it's June, it won't have time to fix Fermi's flaws. Since a Fermi is worse value than Cypress, then a half-Fermi (256 shaders, say) wouldn't compare well to a Juniper. But it should at least be manufacturable due to the smaller die size.
