    Talking Radeon X1950XTX can beat GeForce 8800GTS 320MB

    I found rather interesting test of MSI NX8800GTS 320MB on www.benchmark.co.yu where in couple of tests AMD.ATI's chip actually managed to be better than nVidia's ''baby'' DX10 chip. I think it's maybe because of the memory size. What do you guys and girls think?
    Below is the link.

    P.S. The test is in Serbian, but the site is easy to navigate, and we all understand numbers and what AA or AF mean

    I feel like I should have a great idea right now. But I don't.....

    I would expect that for $430 on newegg, the x1950xtx should be able to outperform the 320mb 8800gts ... which goes for 'only' $300.

    For the $300-$430 price point, you could get a 640mb 8800gts which most likely outperforms the x1950xtx card.

    When DX10 titles are actually released, they will look better on DX10 cards at lower settings than they do maxed on DX9 cards. Compare a GeForce 4800 (DX 8.1) to a Radeon 9600 (DX 9.0b) in, for example, Half-Life 2.

    Besides, xaglx hit the nail on the head. The X1950XTX costs more than the 640MB 8800GTS, and pales in comparison to it. Honestly, it's a terrible card. My old ~$200 7800GT could have been put in SLI with another card and beat the **** out of that for about the same total cost (SLI premium + two cards).

    How about the fact that the X1950XTX is a last-gen card that still takes considerably more power than higher-performing current-gen cards?

    Honestly, that card is only for AMD fanboys, much like the high-end Athlon 64 FX processors or the Intel Extreme Edition Pentium 4s of the past. The 7950GTX was the card to have for top-of-the-line performance, and now it's the 8800GTX.

    Correction 7950GX2 was the top card to have prior to 8800GTX

    Nah, that doesn't count. It's really two cards. The whole SLI-on-one-card thing throws off everything.
