lol

I'm just saying at the moment the best bet would be to buy Intel CPU with an ATI GPU... If you look at the prices for the new NVIDIA cards and those cards still dont have DX 10.1 support?

Ofcourse we'll have to see if the ATI cards beat the cards in the same price range as NVIDIA... Otherwise they might still be the better option even though the cards are much older...

Don't think DX10.1 is important right now, they still have to get DX10 working properly ;)

What do you mean?

You know that is an inncorrect spec, they should be launching with 800SP unless those 480 SP's are clocked far higher than expected. There's been a whole "scandal" about ATI planting fake info using 480SP's when they plan to have 800.

And that is what DX10.1 would help to do.. it's not really any new features just a few small additions or fixes.

Oooh! I see, so 10.1 is supposed to fix the problems with 10, still wonder why Ubisoft removed it from Assassins creed :(

I don't know how many problems it will really fix, except for a nice boost in doing AA. But it's not something Nvidia need to avoid because they are trying to get DX10 working.

And Nvidia paid them to, that's why! :p Apparently their implementation of DX10.1 was just broken, they hadn't really got it right for what they wanted. It worked for improving performance with AA on the ATI cards though.

Hopefully ATI sorted their probs with AA on the 48xx range of cards. Mmm 2x 4850's in crossfire.........

wow, those new ATI cards seem to be the ONLY decent cards that are gonna be released... I mean, at around the $199 marks, thats about 2k-2.5k here is SA and they got nice performance. Lets just hope they release decent drivers and such.

Nvidia going to decrease the price for 8800GT (G92) more to compete with 4850.
