I saw this one rumored benchmark of it running Crysis at max settings, 1920x1200, 4xAA 16x AF and DX 10, and it pulled an average of 43 fps with minimum of 30.

Crysis is finally playable!

I do this already with my GTX295..

Are you sure you're running it at 1200p, or 1080?

AA turned off most likely. Either way, it's not a valid comparison as the numbers still show the 5870 performs at higher numbers in a same settings, apples to apples benchmark. And for significantly less money.

You have to feel a little pain for those who recently paid a premium for a GTX295, but this is how the GPU game is played. We all know this.

Running at 1920x1200 with x8 AA enabled. I'm also using a mod to max out everything that isnt already maxed out while in Very High and I'm using ambiant occlusion, super sampling and high quality textures in my nvidia control pannel.

In the benchmarks, I run about 35-60 FPS.

EDIT: In Crysis Warhead I used the mod for the super maxed game too and I run at 45-60 FPS.

Now that's a beautiful beast! I want one. It's gonna be sooooo fast. Should be almost twice as fast as a 4850 1GB.



I'm gonna hold out for a 5870X2. Sure, I may need an extra 5 monitors so that it doesn't bottleneck my CPU, but that's an investment I'm willing to make... eventually. :D

The Guru review numbers were not that impressive. I'm currently running dual GTX 295's and the 5870 numbers are not exactly earth shattering against even one 295.
However if you see the Toms Hardware numbers where they put the 5870 in Crossfire...

that certainly got me drooling. Can you imagine the framerates running dual x2 of this beast?!
I might be looking at upgrading then.
As it stands right now though, I think I'll stick to my creaky old GTX295 (x2) setup.

Well, there's also the fact that the 295 is two cards, and 200$+ more...

Still have to consider price/performance factor.

The 5870 currently runs $380; a pair of 4850s while not the same performance-wise (but not a huge gap), cost about $200.

Realize that the 5870 will be close to $100 less (or more) in about 6 months when factoring in upgrade times.

The cheapest GTX295 runs about $500 by comparison, scheduled to drop as soon as the R300s debut (which may also be when we see the first drops on the 5870).

Best advice: wait on the 5870 if you aren't using a totally dated VGA solution today (six months, maybe less).

Yeah, the 1600sp is pretty concrete. And the fact that both the '5850' and '5870' (names not confirmed, this is known only as Cypress right now) will have over 2TFlops. Which should place them around the 4870 X2, although the source that said 1600sp said it would compete with the GTX295.

Nvidia has nothing to compete with the X2 part of this, their own roadmaps show the 'GT300' in Spring. They will be competing using GT200 rebrands to the "300 series" (confirmed, check their driver files).

Rumoured price is either $299 or $399; one of the cards (50 or 70) will be $299 at least due to an accidental contest notice offering it as a prize. Launch date is, uh, tomorrow.

Damn, to think one could buy a PS3 for that price of $299.

What is the power consumption on this baby?  I haven't PC gamed in years but these new GPUs would seem to be power hogs.  Of course the original model PS3 certainly was, too!

Lol, good luck making an x2 with that die size.
