What Is Better: Two 7800 GTs In SLI Or One X1800 XT ?

Reply Kiwi - Monday, March 06, 2006 - link What strikes me about all of this is that it's now March, and some actual MB's are in the market with 939 The Guru of 3D, the Hardware Guru, and 3D Guru are trademarks owned by Hilbert Hagedoorn. -- Aria -- Dark -- Fast Contact Us - The Guru of 3D - Archive New Posts AMD RYZEN Builders Thread Latest: Justinbaileyman, Mar 17, 2017 at 6:32 PM CPUs and Overclocking Wagons are coming back to the US Latest: agent00f, Mar 17, 2017 at 6:32 Thanks in advance..

Read More... Well I have a single 7800GTX right now but after seeing the performance of the X1800XT in the games I play and coupled with the image quality improvements, I think it I'd recommend you get the X1800XT. Dude that is not a choice at all- that is a "Do it now before the deal goes away!"Click to expand...

No, it's NOT stupid. Issue though is what MoBo that supports ATI Crossfire and is stable and good at OC'ing, etc.Click to expand... Now thats extreme overclocking and you can't really use that info to make any decisions on whether to choose the ati card over a pair of 7800gtx's. #26 duffers20, Oct Thought I'd try and clear it up for the doubters SLI is very powerful. 2 6800Ultras have only just been equaled by single cards with the X1800XT and especially the 7800GTX

I would like to use the highest possible AA / AF and when available HDR.Click to expand... But, for the record, X1800XT in Crossfire IS vaporware. Crossfire users like the dongle though from what I hear... I felt like 8xS mode with HQ 16x AF was pretty much on par to maybe slightly better than 6xAA and HQ 16xAF on my 9700pro.

Beyond3D is proudly published by GPU Tools Ltd. Thing is for almost the same amount of money I can get SLI'd 7800GTs which should offer better performance than the X1800XT. The cost efficiency is in the 7800GT's side, but the overall end performance when the second GTX512 gets added is on the GTX512's side. An error (403 Forbidden) has occurred in response to this request.

BTW, I never said the X1800XT won most of the time. Don't worry duffers, a single 7800GTX will eat games and spit them out for a couple of years. But in some the newer games like FEAR, the 7800 beats the X1800XT, and this time your comparing 30fps to 20 fps. They're out now and at a great price from what you say (and might even be cheaper than the XT when it arrives), and it looks like your system is ready

is there ever gonna be a dual processor crossfire enabled motherboard? http://www.anandtech.com/show/1863/4 All rights reserved. or... I guess you need to ask yourself if you feel like waiting any longer for nxvidia.

Does such a beast even exist for 24 pin ATX? Tough choice since the 7800GT's will generally be faster than one X1800XT and cost less now than the X1800XT will be at launch. We made a couple of corrections in the article to reflect that information. I did, even though I like ATI. #11 NJspeed, Oct 17, 2005 duffers20 Tank Joined: Dec 22, 2004 Messages: 1,353 Likes Received: 0 I'm kinda in teh same boat as

Did ATI hold back the x1800xt until they had enough chips that would ramp fast enough to beat it? Decisions, decisions.Click to expand... All of these things really lead me back to the question of just how usuable SLi really is. And where did he find a 1500watt PSU???????

The FX-57 used in teh test was cooled with dry ice and clocked at about 3.6ghz and the gfx card was also cooled witih dry ice with the memory running at Theme designed by Audentio Design. Umm u can slap a dual core A64 into any SLI board Dark_fire, Dec 29, 2005 Dark_fire, Dec 29, 2005 #15 Dec 29, 2005 #16 R1ckCa1n [H]ardness Supreme Messages: 4,378

Reply allnighter - Thursday, November 17, 2005 - link First of all I'm not against ATi, any of their products or pre/reviews of those at AT at all.

That's the way I'm leaning and I guess the only thing holding me back is the curiosity factor with the X1800XT. Loading... If you're up to it I suppose you could do better than the reviews, but I wouldn't be too confident about that. And since I'm being given a lesson in semantics - well sure every article is a "pr piece" in essence.

Yes, it works, but No, it's not even close to being near as useful due to some small, but obvious rendering issues. Midrange 800 xl nvidia 6800 gs, 1800xl, 7800gt, and 1800xt, 7800 512 gtx.

Of course, I could always oc the 7800GTs but I haven't seen any results for those yet. #11 Elfear, Oct 22, 2005 Cheesetogo Diamond Member Joined: Jan 26, 2005 Messages:

until you see it side by side with the 7800. #34 martrox, Dec 8, 2005 Nite_Hawk Veteran Joined: Feb 11, 2002 Messages: 1,202 Likes Received: 35 Location: Minneapolis, MN martrox FiringSquad has some interesting numbers: Yes, it's all Quake4, but, seriously, ATI is really holding their own on this one. The fact you don't use any results but say it's faster then a 256Mb SLI setup and then casually say, "Oh the 512Mb version still beats it" seems to me you I just believe ATI should be punished for their idiocy this year. - Lack of products.Besides the 1800XL what have they brought to the table. - Lack of availiblity(out of stock).
