Revealing The Power of DirectX 11 (http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3507)

She's much cooler than her older brother, and way hotter too. Many under-the-hood enhancements mean higher performance for features available but less used under DX10. The major changes to the pipeline mark revolutionary steps in graphics hardware and software capabilities. Tessellation (made up of the hull shader, tessellator and domain shader) and the Compute Shader are major developments that could go far in assisting developers in closing the gap between reality and unreality. These features have gotten a lot of press already, but we feel the key to DirectX 11 adoption (and thus exploitation) is in some of the more subtle elements.

Rather than throwing out old constructs in order to move towards more programmability, Microsoft has built DirectX 11 as a strict superset of DirectX 10/10.1, which enables some curious possibilities. Essentailly, DX10 code will be DX11 code that chooses not to implement some of the advanced features. On the flipside, DX11 will be able to run on down level hardware. Of course, all of the features of DX11 will not be available, but it does mean that developers can stick with DX11 and target both DX10 and DX11 hardware without the need for two completely separate implementations: they're both the same but one targets a subset of functionality. Different code paths will be necessary if something DX11 only (like the tessellator or compute shader) is used, but this will still definitely be a benefit in transitioning to DX11 from DX10.

Nu stiu ce sa zic despre diferenta de consum dintre cele doua, teoretic cam 30W ar trebui sa fie, cel putin asa se laudau, dar din pacate sursa mea nu arata decat vreo 10W diferenta si asta la valoarea maxima atinsa. Avand in vedere ca ambele placi le-am pus acelasi sistem si am rulat acelasi proces ar fi trebuit sa vad diferenta de 30W intre cele doua consumuri, ori nu a fost asa.

AMD Preparing Radeon HD 4890, Slated for April (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?85163)

Samples based on the RV790XT A11 are currently running at speeds of 850/975 MHz (core/memory). AMD is reportedly telling its partners that the RV790XT is expected to be around 20% faster than the RV770XT (HD 4870), and has NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 285 in its sights, for head-on competition. Additionally, AMD may force NVIDIA to reconsider its pricing, since the RV790XT is expected to be priced between US$199 to US$249, up to $150 cheaper than the GeForce GTX 285 in its current pricing.

Samsung's 7Gb/s GDDR5 in 50nm Mass Production, Targets 40nm GPUs - Could this mean mainstream GDDR5? (http://www.dailytech.com/Samsungs+7Gbs+GDDR5+in+50nm+Mass+Production+Target s+40nm+GPUs/article14289.htm)

Samsung noted that it was able to tweak its 50nm process so much that it increased its production efficiency by a hundred percent over its 60nm process. If true, this will cut prices low enough that GDDR5 will be able to finally move into mainstream video cards.
Radeon HD 4770 Sets Sights on GeForce GTS 240 (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?85476)

The HD 4770 SKU will be distinct in being the first mainstream graphics card with GDDR5 memory. It will use its 128-bit wide bus to accommodate 512 MB of memory. The HD 4750 on the other hand, will stick to GDDR3. The reference model may have 1GB of it. HD 4770 is expected to be priced around the US $120 mark, making it a head-on competitor to the GeForce GTS 240, which is known to be a re-badged GeForce 8800/9800GT with higher reference clock-speeds. The HD 4750 has GeForce 9600 GT in its sights, with its expected initial pricing ranging around the $100 mark. The two are expected to follow the RV790 launch, and will arrive in May, close to two months after the GeForce GTS 240 comes to be.

Arctic Cooling Announces the Accelero Xtreme 4870X2
The Swiss low noise cooling solution provider Arctic Cooling today announced the launch of the Accelero XTREME 4870X2. Especially designed for the ATI Radeon HD4870X2, the Accelero XTREME 4870X2 follows the sophisticated design of the Accelero XTREME series, offering the best cooling solution for this high-end VGA card.

Extreme cooling performance
Outstanding cooling comes from outstanding components. The Accelero XTREME 4870X2 is equipped with three 92mm PWM fans running from 1,000 to 2,000 RPM, generating 81 CFM airflow which allows the fans to remove the heat from the two GPUs efficiently. The eight-heatpipe design also improves heat dissipation and achieves 320 Watts cooling capacity. The result is significant - the GPU temperature is 50°C lower than with the stock cooler. This enhances not only the overclock performance, but also extends the service life of your valuable graphics card.

Quiet cooling guaranteed
By using the low noise impeller and patented fan holder, the three 92mm PWM fans are incredibly quiet. Also thanks to the PWM function, the fans run just at necessary speed while offering sufficient cooling at the lowest noise level. Even running at full speed 2,000 RPM, the Accelero XTREME 4870X2 operates almost in silent with only 0.5 Sone of sound, creating a much quieter gaming environment beyond anyone's imagination.

The Accelero XTREME 4870X2 comes with a 6-year limited warranty. This product will be available by end of
March 2009. The MSRP is US$68.30 and 53.95€ (excluding VAT).

Radeon HD 4750 RV740 review | preview |test (http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-4750-rv740-review-preview-test/)

The economy right now is in a tight spot, the entire world is fighting off the global financial crisis. As such people will have less to spend on entertainment and niche products, that is where graphics card series like the ones shown today come in. This is one of the reasons why I believe ATI's RV740 products could be a nice success. Products like these offer very decent gaming performance targeted at the budget end-user below a 100 USD level. That's stuff to think about for a minute. I mean, for less than 100 bucks you'll be able to get a videocard that performs fairly close to a Radeon HD 4850. I think that's impressive, an achievement all by itself.

25-02-2009, 17:05
Mai putin de 100$? Si se tine asa bine in spatele lui 4850? Asta e foarte interesant...

Citat lab501 (http://lab501.ro/stiri/ati-radeon-hd4750-40-de-nm-testat-in-premiera):

Ceea ce surprinde este noul cooler standard, foarte probabil un Zalman (VF900-Cu). Avand in vedere ca ATI HD4750 este produs in procesul tehnologic de numai 40 de nm, este foarte probabil ca acesta racire sa fie atat silentiosa cat si eficienta.

Daca veti citi intregul test realizat de guru3d.com (5 jocuri + 3DMark Vantege), veti observa ca performantele noii placi sunt mai bune ca ale unui ATI HD4830 si foarte aproapiate de cele ale unui ATI HD4850. Pretul de lansare din luna aprilie va fi mai mic de 100 de dolari (in SUA acum cel mai ieftin HD4830 costa 90$, iar cel mai ieftin HD4850 144$), si astfel va constitui placa video ATI cu cel mai bun raport pret/performanta din segmentul ei.

Despre concurentul direct de la Nvidia, GTS 240 (ce are la baza acelasi procesor ca si 8800GT/9800 GT) nu se stie inca ce pret va avea. Iar vizavi de performanta, cum acum un 9800GT este ~ egal cu HD4830, foarte probabil GTS 240 (9800GT overclock-at la 675/1688/2200 MHz core/shader/memorie) va fi ~ egal cu HD4750.
Preconizez ca ATI HD4750 va avea un raport calitate/pret mai bun ca al lui GTS 240.

Scaderi impresionante de pret pentru ATI HD 4870 si ATI HD 4850 @ lab 501 (http://lab501.ro/stiri/scaderi-impresionante-de-pret-pentru-ati)

Mai exact, pretul unui 4850 va scadea cu 30$ (de la 159$ pana la 129$) iar cel al unui 4870 cu 50$ (de la 199$ la 149$ - cu 25%!!!). In acest fel, lupta va fi extrem de stransa in cazul HD 4850 vs. GTS 250 512 Mb, si aproape transata in cazul HD 4870 vs. GTS 250 1024 Mb.
Oare cand si in Romania???

Palit GeForce GTS 250 2048MB review | test (http://www.guru3d.com/article/palit-geforce-gts-250-2048mb-review-test/1)

Typically it would make sense that over time the product would be outdated. But rest assured, there is plenty of life left on the G92B series GPUs powering up the 9800 GTX+ and now the GeForce GTS 250. In it's evolutionary development path, it did get a tweak or two and certainly got faster over time with a couple of architectural and driver tweaks. Next to that power consumption went down; more importantly .. price went down.

Props to forum old-timer Cowie for submitting this one. Chinese based Expreview got their hands on the much discussed single PCB based GeForce GTX 295 From Inno3D. It's a lot of info, courtesy of expreview of course:

Rumors on NVIDIA’s single-PCB reference GTX295 where unveiled in March, and Inno3D has is showing their GTX295 Platinum which is the first card to adopt single-PCB design.

The 'standard (if you can call it that) GTX 295 already had the honor of being the strongest 3D gaming graphics card as the GeForce GTX295 features two 55nm GT200 chips, 1792MB (896*2) GDDR3 memory, 896-bit (448*2) memory interface, 289W TDP, 1.4 billion*2 transistors, 240*2 stream processors, 80*2 Texture Map Units, 28*2 ROPs, and core/shader/memory clock of 576/1242/1998MHz.

This new single-PCB GTX295 keeps the same specs as before.

The previous version of GeForce GTX295 adopted dual-PCB design with PCB code P656, the new GTX295 will employ single-PCB design known as P658. The length of PCB board remains as 267mm, and the cooler sports dual slots and single fan. You’ll find the two GT200 chips on both sides of PCB, and one NF200 and two NVIO2 chips are placed in the middle part.

Each GPU has 3-phase power supply, which means 6-phase power supply in total. Due to the limited space, Inno3D has used a DrMOS chip for this card.

Inno3D’s new GTX295 uses Hynix H5RS5223CFR NOC GDDR3 memory which actually works at 999MHz though the theoretic frequency is 1000MHz. The 14 DRAM chips build up 1792MB memory size.

BTW photo's showing up at this moment, tells me that we can expect a launch at Computex, or at least some demo's early next month.

NVIDIA GT300 Targets 225W TDP (http://en.expreview.com/2009/06/09/nvidia-gt300-targets-225w-tdp.html)

As we reported, G300 will be based on 40nm manufacturing process, featuring 2.4 billion transistors, 495mm2 package, 512 shaders, 512-bit memory interface, GDDR5 and core/shader/memory clock of 700/1600/1100MHz. The TDP was rummored to be 300W, e.g. one 8pin and one 6pin power connector.
But according to Brightsideofnews (http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2009/6/8/nvidia-gt300-targets-225w-tdp.aspx), the GT300 part targets a thermal range of 225W, and should come with two 6pin power connectors. It’s a mystery how NVIDIA manages to control the power consumption so properly, but if what we hear is true, it’s something good for the users.

GTS 250 is selling like mad - Great success for Nvidia (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/14131/34/)

Renaming the G92b-based Geforce 9800GTX+ to Geforce GTS 250 was one of the best things Nvidia did in 2009. The rename worked and everyone wants to buy Geforce GTS 250 as this name definitely sounds better than the old 9800GTX+.

The hard reality is that consumers are too naive to notice the tricks of Nvidia's mighty marketing machine, but as we said, Nvidia doesn’t care much as the strategy works.

As mai adauga pe lista motivelor si tactica Nvidia de a nu trimite sample-uri de GTS 250 publicatiilor corecte (hardwarecanuks, hardocp), sau celor care nu le-au cantat in struna (anandtech) pana in acel moment. Iar Nvidia a avut succes... :vommit:

09-06-2009, 13:13
Din moment ce aceasta GTS 250 este mai buna* si mai ieftina decat 9800 GTX nu prea vad care ar fi problema,mai ales ca am avut parte de teste si un review autohton.

*din anumite puncte de vedere

Cel mai ieftin GTS 250 de 512 MB e 445 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/gainward/geforce-gts-250-512mb-ddr3-256-bit/), iar un 4850 cu racire buna si silentioasa, plus overclock-ata, e 405 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/palit/ati-radeon-hd4850-sonic-512mb-ddr3-256-bit/). Cel mai ieftin GTS 250 de 1024 de MB e 530 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/palit/geforce-gts-250-1gb-ddr3-256-bit/), iar cel mai ieftin 4870 e 595 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/powercolor/ati-radeon-hd4870-512mb-ddr5-256-bit/). Eu spun ca de fiecare data varianta ATI isi merita mai mult banii... la fel cum la 675 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/gainward/geforce-gtx-260-golden-sample-896mb-ddr3-448-bit/) Gainward GeForce GTX 260 Golden Sample pe 55 de nm cu oc la 625 MHz e optimul calitate/pret pentru tot mainstream-ul...

Pe de alta parte insa, GTS 250 e acum mult muuult mai ieftin fata de preturile nesimtite de la lansare (care au fost considerate de unii ca fiind bune totusi)... in opinia mea GTS 250 nu a constituit niciun moment pe niciun segment de pret o varianta optima, poate doar pentru fanii Nvidia sau pentru naivi...

09-06-2009, 19:26
Cred ca va fi o placa foarte reusita GT300. Dar ce TDP are un GTX285? Si un GTX295?

Coco, mie nu mi se pare un optim calitate/pret GTX265, in conditiile in care un HD4870 e sub 600lei si performanta e aproximativ egala, poate un piculet mai buna ptr nVidia. E vorba de acelasi duel ca intre HD4850 vs 9800GTX+ ... alege in functie de gust propriu.

PowerColor introduces New Low Cost PCS HD4730 GPU (http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/news/video/powercolor-introduces-cost-pcs-hd4730-gpu/)

le: GTX 285 are TDP 183w. GTX 295 are TDP 289w.
Ciudat este insa ca pe undeva citisem ca GT300 va avea acelasi TDP ca GTX 285.

09-06-2009, 19:46
posesor de gts 250, stiind ca este la baza doar un 9800gtx+ rebranduit, dar am luato pt racirea modificata, avand si racire pe vrm. varinata de la msi gts 250(cea scumpa)

nu am luat ati pt ca in trecut am avut adevarate dureri de cap cu driverele amd-ati. sunt foarte multumit de placa, silentioasa etc.

in comparatie cu 4850, cu o racire modificata intr-un test castiga amd, in altul nvidia. oricum pt a avea o placa "buna" in cele 2 cazuri dar in special in cazul lui 4850 trebuie sa aiba o alta solutie de racire!

eu sunt multumit de placa si mi se pare ca nvidia are o tactica mai bunicica in sensul ca la racirile stock sunt decente in comparatie cu ati (vezi 4850) si drivere stabile pt single card.

09-06-2009, 19:51
Uite o parere sincera, personala, care vine de la un consumator normal. :yes:

Acum sa vezi ce o sa iti sara fanaticii de mai sus in cap, cum ca 4850 e bune, e reci, e stabile, e silentioase, driverii e cei mai geniali, si alte e :)

Eu am tot incercat placile video din segmentul asta de pret pe piata, concluzia mea ar fi:
- intre GTS250 si HD4850 as declara castigator HD-ul ca performanta dar trebuie sa ai mare grija la ce varianta cumperi, racirea iti poate crea probleme, ori este zgomotoasa si raceste bine, ori este silentioasa si placa se incinge ca dracu, personal as lua cel mai ieftin HD4850 si as schimba racirea.
- GTX260 216 SP, frecvente standard, indiferent ca este pe 55 sau 65 nm se poate compara cu orice HD4870 512 MB, pierde la setari medii datorita frecventelor default si castiga la setari high datorita cantitatii de memorie, ambele costa in jur de 650 lei.
- in jurul lui 800 lei gasim GTX260 216 SP, overclockata de obicei, 55 nm, sau HD4870 1GB, ambele se comporta ~ la fel, nu cred ca poti declara una din ele castigoare decat la o diferenta foarte mica.
Pe GTX260 gasim cea mai silentioasa racire aparuta pe placile video in ultimul timp, placa va sta la 85 grade in load si in functie de conditiile de racire din carcasa si temperatura mediului ambiant putem avea ventilatorul la turatii de la 50% in sus. De regula la 24 grade ambient si o racire decenta in carcasa te joci cu ventilatorul la maxim 65%, nu este chiar silent dar este departe de a fi deranjant, ceva de genul unui ventilator de 120 mm pe la 1000 rot/min. Sub 24 grade ambient poti sa nu mai atingi acele 85 grade si atunci este o adevarata placere sa te joci.

10-06-2009, 09:33
GTX 260 216 SP porneste de pe la suma de ~650-670 RON,peste aceasta suma gasim variantele OC de la BFG,sau SC/SSC/etc de la EVGA.
Varianta Palit in schimb GTX260 216sp Sonic cu frecvente marite substantial costa aproximativ 680 Ron si in opinia mea ar trebui sa bata binisor un 4870 1gb.

Spre exemplu eu am avut de ales intre gtx260 216sp si Sapphire 4890 si am ales GTX-ul pt simplul motiv ca arata a placa video.Constructie ce denota un aspect high-end,sobra,racire buna(desi a necesitat mici retusuri) si silentioasa,pret mult mai mic si .... PhysX

P.S. am incercat din rasputeri sa nu mentionez nimic despre driverii ATi insa nu ma pot abtine ... ati catalyst a fost unul din motivele pt care am ales nVidia.

12-06-2009, 00:37
Ma bucur ca dupa 7 posturi (unele argumentate, altul la deruta) imi dati dreptate... si nu, cel mai ieftin GTX 260 216 SP e acel Gainward la 675 ron, culmea, si oc-at...

In alta ordine de idei... Game Developers Likely to Utilize Performance Boosting Features of DirectX 11 (http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/video/display/20090611123755_Game_Developers_Likely_to_Utilize_P erformance_Boosting_Features_of_DirectX_11_First__ ATI.html)

“If I was making a decision about [which DirectX 11 features to implement first], I would go for three things fairly quickly,” said Mr. Huddy.

Those things are, apparently, multi-threading support, compute shaders and tessellation.

Multi-Threading: +20% Performance

Post Processing: +25% Performance

Tessellation: When Performance Meets Quality

Tessellation is not exactly a performance boosting feature, but it can generate highly-detailed objects using less resources than using traditional technology; therefore, either game developers will be able to offer better graphics, or they will be able to render existing graphics with higher speed.

“After the post-processing work, I would probably switch to tessellation. I would use […] patch approximation to smooth out jagged objects, things like pipes, which are supposed to have smooth form, use N-patches there. Or I will be even more aggressive and take something like parallax occlusion mapping, which is a rather attractive kind of trick for improving the quality of pixels within an object. I would instead extrude the geometry and load a parallax occlusion height map and then would generate much improved silhouettes using the tessellator,” said Mr. Huddy.

Obviously, to use tessellation, developers will have to rely on DirectX 11 or, at least, hardware with tessellation support. Still, tessellation is a yet another advantage of DX11.

Teselarea exista in Xbox 360 de ceva vreme. Zvonurile spun ca nVidia "s-a opus" introducerii teselarii in DX10 in timp ce ATi o avea deja implementata in pastila de siliciu (R600).

In plus, daca acest (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?96859) zvon e adevarat, ATI va mai lansa inca o placa, pozitionata intre 4850 si 4870 ca pret, si denumita HD 4790 - un RV790 castrat la 600 de MHz (si deci cu reale posibilitati de overclock) si cu bus-ul tot de 256 de biti... inca un best buy (din nou, foarte probabil)...

Se cam aglomereaza tabloul produselor ATI pe un segment ingust de preturi... cu aceste doua lansari cred ca ATI intentioneaza sa elimine 4850 si 4870 (plus 4890) in curand de pe piata, facand loc in toamna noii serii 5xxx...

16-06-2009, 09:43

According to what we have heard ATI is playing fair on this one, as it has promised a US $99 card that they simply could not deliver in volume due to low yields and high demand. In order to live up to its promise ATI has simply adjusted the price of the HD 4850 in order to keep its customers, if you want US $99 card, you can have the HD 4850.

poate n-or fi ATI cele mai bune,dar sunt motivul pt care concurenta vinde considerabil mai ieftin

As for the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220, it has 48 processor cores and a 615 MHz clock speed, paired with 1 GB of GDDR3 memory with a 790 MHz clock and a 128-bit interface. It has a slightly slower shaders clock speed of 1335 MHz. Neither of the two cards is expected to be available directly to consumers, both offerings are marked as OEM products and meant to be entry-level options in pre-built PCs.

Nvidia retail DX10.1 comes in September (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/14607/34/)

With Nvidia, things are quite clear. The first DirectX 11 chip is in super high end, something that we all call GT300, even that might not be the real code name. Nvidia's desktop 40nm refresh is a minor facelift of existing chips, all done in 40nm and don’t expect any miracles.

They should be marginally better than the current 55nm generation and that’s it. We wonder if Nvidia will force the guys behind Assassin’s Creed to enable DirectX 10.1 again (http://www.pixelrage.ro/news/Fara-DirectX-10.1-pentru-Assassins-Creed-6487.html), as its been disabled for a while, at least we believe so.
AMD: DirectX 11 Radeons Pleasantly Fast (http://en.expreview.com/2009/07/10/amd-directx-11-radeons-pleasantly-fast.html)

AMD plans to launch Evergreen series DirectX 11 graphics card by the end of 2009, and hopefully promote it for the release of Microsoft’s Windows 7 on Oct 22nd.
Richard Huddy, AMD’s head of the Developer Relations Department, said in a talk with PCgameshardware, “I would say we don’t make money by delivering slow hardware. Our expectation is that we’ll give you a really pleasant surprise this year when we ship our DX11 hardware.”
After that he demonstrated the advantages of Hardware Tessellation and DirectX 11 Compute Shaders on DirectX 11 ready graphics cards.

The Evergreen card with a dual-slot cooling solution is, according to Huddy, neither an entry-level nor a high-end product - it’s supposed to be part of the product array above US$100.

wow! foarte chipes PCBul asta!

17-07-2009, 20:04
Nu o aparea si un GTX 285 d'asta chipes? :D

off: Cat duce un GTX 285 ne-voltmodat? Eu am dat in al meu 710/1600/2900. Am vazut ca OCX @ BFG si FTW @ EVGA duc mult. Altele? Macar eu am si racire ca lumea.

le: Care ar fi diferenta intre un GTX 285 cu memoriile 0.8ns si unul cu memoriile 0.7ns?

Am vazut cateva modele de GTX 285 cu memorii 0.7ns, printre care cateva EVGA, ceva Sparkle si atat. In rest, toate 0.8ns. E vorba de altceva aici...
Nu inteleg care e diferenta? E mai overclockabil? Mai ... nu stiu :D

le: 2000 / 0.7 = 2857
2000 / 0.8 = 2500

Dar care e baiul?

A fost testat si de catre Xtrempc in numarul din iunie, si s-a comportat foarte bine ca temperaturi pentru un 4850 fierbinte. De asemenea, PCB-ul este schimbat (si as putea spune imbunatatit), o parte a vrm-ului fiind mutata in stanga pastilei.

Acelasi sistem de racire va fi folosit si pe 4770 (GV-R477SL-1GI (http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,686540/Computex-Gigabyte-presents-passive-HD-4770-and-9800-GT/News/))

ATI to launch DirectX 11 GPUs in seven weeks (http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2009/7/22/ati-to-launch-directx-11-gpus-in-seven-weeks.aspx) - s-ar parea ca ATI sunt pe val... pardon, pe flower powder... sevrajul incepand cu 1x septembrie 2009...

ATI will catapult not one, but rather a complete DirectX 11 line-up into the orbit, ranging from $50 to the high end parts in their respective three-figure pricing brackets. Just like the Radeon 4000 series, consisting out of 4400, 4500, 4600, 4700 and 4800 parts, the new Radeon series will consist out of entry-level [Hemlock], mainstream [Cedar, Redwood], performance [Juniper] and high-end part [Cypress]. When it comes to codenames, you'll notice that all of these parts have codenames from plants, with some belonging into the same family [Cedar, Juniper, Redwood] Note that not all of these parts will be launched on the same day. Some parts might have to wait until Holiday season to get them in OEM-level numbers, but all in all - this is the strongest line-up ATI had in years. We might even dare to say strongest line-up ever from any GPU manufacturer.

Pe sistemul ,,Daca voi nu ma vreti, eu va vreau"... GeForce GTS 240 Spotted in OEM Channels (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?100238)

Apparently NVIDIA wants to continue development of the GeForce GTS 240, at least for its OEM customers, if not AIC partners that cater to the retail consumer segment. The GeForce GTS 240 reference design accelerator is in accordance with the schematics that surfaced back in February, and maintains a single-slot design overall. Under the hood is the 55 nm G92b graphics processor with 112 shader processors, a 256-bit GDDR3 memory interface, 1 GB of memory, and reference clock speeds that match that of GeForce 9800 GT OC: 675/1620/1100 (core/shader/memory). The card supports 2-way SLI, and should be priced in the sub $130 space.
Mai precis, OEM-urile GTS 240 vor ajunge in compuri de-a gata gen Apple, ai caror utilizatori se vor minuna de capabilitatile nemaintalnite ale acestora...

HD 4860 Starts Shipping in Two Weeks, HD 4750 Follows (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?100953)

Slated to ship from around August 18, the HD 4860 will substitute the HD 4850, which is handling the lower price segment of $90~$110.

Even as the Radeon HD 4770 is suffering stock shortages around the world, ATI seems to be going ahead with the HD 4750, a graphics card based on the 40 nm RV740 GPU. The HD 4750 has similar specifications to the HD 4770. It even sports GDDR5 memory. The RV740 core runs at 730 MHz, and its memory at 800 MHz (3200 MHz effective). While the memory clock speed is identical to that of the HD 4770, the core is clocked slightly lower. Overall, the card won't have as much overclocking headroom as the HD 4770, because it will not draw power from a 6-pin power connector. The design ensures existing low-performing raw materials are utilized more effectively. The HD 4750 is expected to be priced at $88 initially. The first batch of these cards will be very small, quantity-wise (aviz amatorilor).

ce tampenii

dupa ce zice acolo s-ar parea ca stock-urile de 4770 sunt 0 din cauza unui conector de alimentare
:what: unde mah grabitule? eu am inteles ca neavand conector suplimentar, cumparatorii nu ar trebui sa se astepte sa oc-eze prea mult 4750-ul (pb ca nici pana la frecventele 4770-ului)... si mai zice la final ca si stocurile de 4750 vor fi foarte mici (la fel ca la lansarea 4770-ului) :P

06-08-2009, 19:39
pai scot 4770,placa buna,ceruta...si n-au de unde sa ofere produsul
apoi scot 4750,care e acelasi lucru,mai putin frecventa mai mica cauzata de lipsa conectorului de alimentare
logica de balta ar concluziona ca din cauza conectorului de alimentare nu sunt 4770

eram ironic la balariile astea ale lor cu diversificarea gamei...mi se pare ca exagereaza

06-08-2009, 19:44
si daca ce ziceam mai sus e adevarat, cum ca in doua luni scot placi directx 11 pe 40 de nm intre 50 si 600 de coco, atunci exagereaza la greu. ai dreptate, si sunt si eu curios ce se va intampla cu aceste placi (4770, 4750 si 4860) dupa luna noiembrie... poate insa ca sunt prea scumpe de fabricat 4850/4870/4890-urile, si poate ca nu vor avea placi directx 11 care sa umple toate segmenţelele de preturi...

06-08-2009, 19:46
DX11 vor fi mai scumpe si fara nimic desoebit (nu e ce juca DX11<doar performanta le va diferentia)

06-08-2009, 20:04
nu ai de unde sa stii, si nici nu ai cum sa presupui preturi (sau raporturi performanta pret)... iar vizavi de utilitate - daca vrei facem si un pariu - te asigur ca la aparitia windows 7 (peste 2-3 luni) vor exista disponibile cel putin 2-3 jocuri directx 11...

Quick Test of Most Powerful GTX260 from Zotac (http://en.expreview.com/2009/08/07/quick-test-of-most-powerful-gtx260-from-zotac.html/3)

Zotac GTX 260 Extreme comes with core/shader/memory clock of 750/1600/1200MHz, up from 576/1242/999MHz on the reference design.

Equipped with Arctic Cooling XTREME GTX 280 cooler, the card can run steadily at 800/1770/1375MHz (core/shader/memory), and 3DMark Vantage score achieves P15977 - an increase of 10.7%.

After changing for a more powerful fan and adding heatsink for the Mosfet, the clocks can be improved to 820/1800/1375MHz.

Zotac GTX260 Extreme can be effortlessly overclocked to above 800MHz, and its performance can even outperform GeForce GTX285…

The awesome card is expected to be available in Chinese market next month, with lower pricing than GeForce GTX275. Zotac is also working on a GeForce GTX285 with 15 phase PWM design as well. We do look forward to seeing more of Zotac’s engineering skills in the future.

Multe stiri/zvonuri despre nelansatele 5870/5850 de la AMD...

AMD Cypress ''Radeon HD 5870'' Stripped (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?103599)

The seemingly huge die measures 338 mm² (area), and for 40 nm, it translates to "huge", and is vindicated by the transistor count of ~2.1 billion. In contrast, AMD's older flagship GPU, the RV790 holds 959 million, and NVIDIA's GT200 holds 1.4 billion.

The PCB has three distinct areas: the connectivity, processing, and VRM. To fuel the GPU is a high-grade 4 phase digital PWM power circuit, while the PCB has placeholders for an additional vGPU phase. The 8 (or 16 on the 2 GB model) memory chips, is powered by a 2 phase circuit. Power is drawn from two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors, but there seems to be a placeholder for two more pins, i.e., to replace one of those 6-pin connectors with an 8-pin one. Bordering the GPU on two sides are the 8 GDDR5 memory chips, which AMD calls says is generation ahead of present GDDR5, and supports reference frequencies as high as 1300 MHz (2600 MHz DDR, 5.20 GHz effective). In the 2 GB variant, 8 more chips seat on the other side of the PCB. This is what perhaps, the backplate is intended to cool. On the connectivity portion of it, are the two CrossFire connectors, DisplayPort, HDMI and a cluster of two DVI-D connectors.

While HD 5870 sports 1600 stream processors, 80 TMUs, and 32 ROPs, HD 5850 has 1440 stream processors, 72 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Although 32 ROPs puzzles us for a 256-bit wide memory interface, we suspect low-level design changes that make "32 ROPs" more of an effective count than an absolute count. While HD 5870 features over 800 MHz core clock and 5.20 GHz memory, its little sibling has over 700 MHz core clock and 4.40 GHz memory. Price points expected are US $449 for Radeon HD 5870 2 GB, $399 for HD 5870 1 GB, and $299 for HD 5850. AMD is expected to announce all three models on the coming 23rd.
First Radeon HD 5870 Performance Figures Surface (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?103786)

Radeon HD 5870 is anywhere between 5~155 percent faster than GeForce GTX 285. That's a huge range, and leaves a lot of room for uncertainty.

When compared to GeForce GTX 295, its performance ranges between -25 percent (25% slower) to 95 percent (almost 2x faster), another broad range.

When two HD 5870 cards are set up in CrossFire, the resulting setup is -5 percent (5% slower) to 90 percent faster than GeForce GTX 295. Strangely, the range maximum is lesser than that on the single card.

When three of these cards are setup in 3-way CrossFireX, the resulting setup is 10~160 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 295.
The Radeon HD 5850 on the other hand, can be -25 percent (25% slower) to 120 percent faster than GeForce GTX 285.
Mi se par extrem de mari diferentele (a se citi partinitoare)... insa si noua pastila este IMENSA...

Numai si numai lucruri noi si extrem de interesante...

Juniper XT is Radeon HD 5770 and Juniper LE is HD 5750 (http://vr-zone.com/articles/juniper-xt-is-radeon-hd-5770-and-juniper-le-is-hd-5750/7626.html?doc=7626) - se lanseaza la o luna dupa 5850/5870/5870x2 conform fudzilla (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/15471/34/)

HD 5770 card is codenamed Countach while HD 5750 is codenamed Corvette and they both come with 1GB GDDR5 memories on 128-bit memory interface. Juniper will possess all the features of its higher end counterpart like 40nm, DX11, Eyefinity technology, ATI Stream, UVD2, GDDR5 and best of all, it is going to be very affordable.

One of the reason why AMD is not mass producing Radeon HD 4700 (RV740) series now is because HD 5700 series will be replacing it soon and will come one month after HD 5800 series. It will meet head on against the NVIDIA's D10P1 (GT215) series in October so expect a full fledge war then. With a performance target of 1.6x over the HD 4770 and 1.2x over the HD 4750, they are surely packed with enough power to pit against the NVIDIA's lineup. Pair them up and you will get a boost of 1.8x which is roughly the performance of a Cypress card.
Daca e cum spun baietii astia (m-as mira), atunci lansarea HD 4770 a fost se pare doar una pe hartie, produsele vandute pana in prezent (mai ales la noi) fiind extrem de putine din cate stiu eu.

Cat despre 5850/5870 si ale lor specificatii, le aveti atasate (conform hardware-infos.com (http://www.hardware-infos.com/news.php?news=3188&sprache=1)), acestea putand explica relativ saltul de performanta ,,testat" mai sus, iar urmatorul tabel avanseaza niste cifre fantastice pentru consumul in idle ale noilor placi AMD, conform expreview (http://en.expreview.com/2009/09/14/power-consumption-comparison-of-radeon-hd-5870-hd-5850.html)...

Acest lucru ar putea echivala cu temperaturi mai omenesti in acea zona (deci mai putine batai de cap pentru cei care vor sa schimbe racirea).

Atasat sunt si niste capturi din driver-ul ATI cu variatia temperaturii in load in functie de rotatia ventilatorului cooler-ului stock. Relativ ok...

Interesant e ca in Dawn of War 2 baietii de la ATI au gasit o modalitate de a pacali demo-ul in driver-ul ce vine cu placa, avand fps mare dar cu obiecte lipsa pe harta.

If anything, the HD 5870 really showed the inherent difficulties with cards like the GTX 295 and HD 4870X2 which both live and die by their drivers rather than raw horsepower. While both dual chip cards outperformed the HD 5870 on a regular basis, they couldn't shake their limitations in order to deliver a killing blow. If anything, our results should also make it apparent that only reporting average framerates means dick all when it comes to comparing GPUs. A gamer could have a totally smooth gameplay experience until that one intense scene where performance drops like a stone. We've all had it happen to us and those situations continue to be the bane of the dual GPU cards' existence.

I can't begin to express how relieving it is to finally have GPUs that implement a protected audio path capable of handling these overly encrypted audio streams. Within a year everything from high end GPUs to chipsets with integrated graphics will have this functionality.
... cat si sectiunile ce se refera la calitatea imaginii in jocuri. Concluziile lor:

the 5870 is the single fastest single-GPU card we have tested, by a wide margin. Looking at its performance in today’s games, as a $379 card it makes the GTX 285 at its current prices ($300+) completely irrelevant. The price difference isn’t enough to make up for the performance difference, and NVIDIA also has to contend with the 5850, which should perform near the GTX 285 but at a price of $259. As is often the case with a new generation of cards, we’re going to see a shakeup here in the market as NVIDIA in particular needs to adjust to these new cards.

AMD was shooting to beat the GTX 295 with the 5870, but in our benchmarks that’s not happening. The 295 and the 5870 are close, perhaps close enough that NVIDIA will need to reconsider their position, but it’s not enough to outright dethrone the GTX 295. NVIDIA still has the faster single-card solution, although the $100 price premium is well in excess of the <10% performance premium.

Moving away from performance, we have feature differentiation. AMD has a clear advantage here with DirectX11, as the 5870 is going to be a very future-proof card. When games using DX11 arrive, it’s going to bring about a nice change in quality (particularly with tessellation). However it’s going to be a bit of a wait to get there.

Am lasat la urma poate cel mai bun test de pe net, al celor de la techpowerup (http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ATI/Radeon_HD_5870/1.html). De ce spun asta? Sunt singurii care s-au gandit (fiind si mai priceputi de fel) sa dezactiveze din bios-ul placii doua SIMD-uri si sa reduca frecventa unui 4870 astfel incat sa simuleze performanta unui non-existent deocamdata (desi lansat cica tot azi) HD 5850. Concluziile lor (si atasate pe diverse rezolutii)...

Pe langa acestea mai mentionez faptul ca 5870 are un consum fantastic de mic in idle iar in load putin mai mult decat 4890 (pe care insa o surclaseaza in termeni de performanta).

Asadar, avem un tablou complet al zilei de azi, cu toate testele de 5870-uri, unele mai reusite, altele mai putin reusite.

N-as spune asa, au comparat cele mai puternice single gpu-uri existente pe piata, chiar daca fac parte din generatii diferite.
Ai dreptate, asa au facut toti de pe net. Totusi, unul dintre ele este cu adevarat unic prin abordare (asta vizavi si de abordarea traditionala a site-ului cu pricina), fiind singurul test de pe net care nu include o alta placa single-gpu... este de altfel si singurul test romanesc, si o sa il comentez pe scurt - promit! :D - imediat.

Interesant Matei ce spui tu (pe baza testului facut de lab501 (http://lab501.ro/placi-video/ati-radeon-hd-5870-vs-nvidia-gtx-295)).

Acolo e comparat varf de gama cu varf de gama (HD 5870 cu GTX 295) care au si preturi similare :). Comparatia cu GTX 285 e pur si simplu irelevanta, trebuie sa recunosti asta, oricat de fanATIc ai fi :)

Parerea mea este ca ar fi trebuit comparata atat cu GTX285 cat si cu 295 deoarece fiecare aveti partea lui de dreptate, adica o comparatie din punct de vedere al lui single GPU unde trebuie determinat cine este lider, dar si a pretului de achizitie. In concluzie nici una din variante nu este rea, mai degraba se completeaza reciproc.

Coco a testat si Xtrem PC 5870-ul, deci nu sunt singurii romani.

Am inteles. Sunt fan ATI. Ok, cum spui tu. O sa fac si eu o aluzie la final, sper sa nu iasa certuri prea mari. ;)

Vorbeam mai devreme de abordarea traditionala a site-ului lab501. Si cand am spus asta ma refeream tot la un test din primavara, la GTS 250 (http://lab501.ro/placi-video/nemuritorul-se-intoarce-nvidia-geforce-gts-250), in care a fost facut un versus GTS 250 / 9800 GTX+, scris de acelasi redactor ca si acum, din a carui concluzie citez...

Avem de-a face cu un produs mai ieftin, dar cu performante mai bune decat inaintasul sau. Dar daca acum aveti in plan sa cumparati un o placa grafica mainstream, GTS 250 este cu siguranta cea mai buna alegere, datorita performantei usor crescute, al pretului mai mic si al consumului redus.
La vreo 2 ore dupa ce a aparut testul pe site, desi pe vremea aia iti eram coleg, nu m-am putut stapani sa nu intervin pe crazy (http://forum.crazypc.ro/showpost.php?p=157301&postcount=10) sa mentionez care au fost preturile din momentul lansarii (preturi reale, de pe site-ul celor de la itdirect), preturi mult mai mari ca ale unui 9800GTX+, si care se apropiau de cele ale unui 4870. Si in zona aia au stat inca 2 saptamani peste tot, inclusiv in Romania, asa cum am scris aici (http://lab501.ro/stiri/gts-240-nu-gtx-275-da-razboiul-preturilor-atinvidia-continua).

Cu toate acestea domnul redactor a spus atunci ca GTS 250 are un pret bun (???), si ca isi merita banii (???). Ba mai mult, nu l-a testat versus produsul care se afla la acelasi pret (putin mai scump - ATI HD 4870), nedumerire pe care mi-am exprimat-o la acea vreme doar in particular.

Motivatia: ,,lasa ca peste vreo 2 saptamani - o luna o sa scada foarte mult pretul, o sa vezi". Si a avut dreptate domnul redactor cand a spus o luna. Numai ca intre timp un cititor fidel al site-ului lab501 stia doar ca GTS 250 isi merita cu prisosinta banii.

Iar acum avem parte de o lansare a primei placi DirectX 11, PRIMA ce ofera suport pentru aceasta tehnologie. Si... SURPRIZA! Nu mai e testata vs. 4890... nici macar vs. GTX 285 (cea mai buna placa single-gpu la momentul actual).

Vorbeai de preturi... pai e simplu. Uite preturile in Germania...

HD 5870 porneste de la 320 de euro (http://www.geizhals.eu/?cat=gra16_512&xf=891_Radeon+HD+5870) (pre-comanda).

HD 5850 porneste de la 205 euro (http://www.geizhals.eu/?cat=gra16_512&xf=891_Radeon+HD+5850) (pre-comanda).

GTX 285 porneste de la 240 euro (http://www.geizhals.eu/?cat=gra16_512&xf=891_GeForce+GTX+285).

GTX 295 porneste de la 295 euro (http://www.geizhals.eu/?cat=gra16_512&xf=891_GeForce+GTX+295).

In Romania aprox. cel mai ieftin GTX 295 e 1600 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/leadtek/winfast-gtx-295-v2-179gb-ddr3-896-bit/), iar cel mai ieftin GTX 285 e 1200 ron (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/bfg-tech/geforce-gtx-285-oc-rev-b-1gb-ddr3-512-bit/). Aplicand o regula de 3 simpla la preturile de mai sus, ar rezulta ca un 5850 ar trebui sa coste vreo 900-1000 ron (va fi cu siguranta un best-buy daca asta va fi pretul real), iar un 5870 ~ 1800 ron.

Asta ce ar insemna? Ca 5870 va avea in perioada imediat urmatoare un raport pret/performanta chiar infect.

Bun, pai si atunci care e concluzia: ca nu isi merita banii acum, nu? Concluzie reliefata de domnul redactor foarte bine (http://lab501.ro/placi-video/ati-radeon-hd-5870-vs-nvidia-gtx-295/10)...

Daca tot am ajuns la capitolul pret, trebuie sa discutam si acest aspect, care sincer este mai putin placut decat ne asteptam. ATI ne-au obisnuit in ultima vreme cu produse foarte competitive din punct de vedere al pretului, si se pare ca de aceasta data strategia este diferita. Pretul de vanzare pentru SUA se situeaza intr-adevar in jurul valorii de 400$. Problema este ca pretul recomandat de vanzare pentru Europa este de 349 de Euro, iar daca adaugam si TVA-ul necesar comercializarii acestui produs in tara noastra, ajungem la ~415 Euro, adica ~ 1760 RON, adica aproximativ acelasi pret cu modelul de GTX 295 testat astazi. Este adevarat, motivele invocate mai sus recomanda achizitia unui Radeon 5870 in acest moment, datorita suportului DirectX 11 dar si al consumului semnificativ redus fata de GTX 295. Totusi, nu putem sa nu remarcam faptul ca odata ajunsi aproape de pozitia de egalitate, cei de la ATI/AMD practica preturi similare cu cele ale concurentei, abandonand strategia folosita in cazul ultimelor generatii de placi video.

Numai atat? Pai nu... toate site-urile serioase (hardwarecanuks, anandtech & co) mentioneaza ca o placa single-gpu puternica ofera la orice ora o experienta de gaming mult mai buna, fara problemele cauzate de driver-ele nu suficient optimizate pentru solutiile dual-gpu (gen GTX 295). Si iar toate mentioneaza ca acest pret este umflat TEMPORAR pentru ca Nvidia nu are ce sa ofere (directx 11).

Asadar, daca cineva vrea sa isi faca saptamana viitoare upgrade (cand presupunem ca 5870 va aparea pe stoc), lab501 ce ii spune? Ai o placa dual-gpu in aceeasi bani de la Nvidia cu performanta mai buna. Numai ca respectivul o sa fie foarte surprins cand va aparea un joc nou in care va avea probleme datorate driver-elor (la fel cum - ba chiar mai multe - ar avea cu un 4870x2), sau un joc directx 11 la care o sa se uite cu jind la setarile maxime (asa cum posesorii de placi ATI se uita cu jind la efectele Physx care sunt EXCLUSIVE Nvidia, si jocul nu poate fi rulat cu acestea activate decat avand o placa Nvidia). Si chiar daca acum DirectX 11 egal 0, nu acelasi lucru il vom putea spune dupa ce se va urni armata Microsoft cu al lor Windows Seven (si jocuri diverse asortate).

Doua situatii similare, doua lansari de placi video, metodologie ,,rafinata" astfel incat produsele Nvidia sa apara in top in orice context (fie ca are un raport pret/performanta execrabil - vezi GTS 250, fie ca nu au produs echivalent cu aceleasi capabilitati - vezi 5870 si DirectX 11). Sunt curios ce cusur va mai avea 5850...

Un fraier ar raspunde... ,,ba voi sunteti fani Nvidia". Numai ca eu am trecut de stadiul ala. Altele sunt motivatiile la nivelul asta. ;) Intrebarea care se pune: ,,Tu, Matei, stii?"

Este ultima mea interventie pe aceasta tema pentru ca nu intentionez sa dau nastere unui nou scandal (sau sa il perpetuez daca va fi cazul).

Interesant. Si cum ITDirect practica niste preturi foarte putin mai mari, le vom vedea si mai ieftine in retail (pcgarage & shit).

Asadar vom avea HD 5850 ~ 1000 ron, GTX 285 - 1200 ron, HD 5870 ~ 1450 ron, GTX 295 - 1600 ron, cu HD 5850 best-buy in categoria upper-mainstream / high-end si cu un 5870 cu un pret corect avand in vedere ca e varful single-GPU.

Si mai avem doua publicatii romanesti care au cacat-o grav, mai intai XtremPC care a comparat 5870-ul doar versus GTX 285 (asta reiese din graficul lui Dragos), dar mai ales inverzitii si unicii de la lab501 care au comparat-o doar versus GTX295 (si nu ma refer la verdele unei sigle), ca doar Nvidia trebuie sa fie prima oricand si oricum (iar cei care nu stiu treaba asta sunt fani ATI, fanilor ATI!!!).

Oricum, e posibil sa creasca artificial preturile la ambele produse noi daca distribuitorii de pe la noi vor profita de cererea (probabil) mult mai mare decat stocurile mici/inexistente din aceste produse. Si la HD 4770 a fost la un moment dat o astfel de crestere temporara.

Ce bine ar fi sa avem o publicatie romaneasca de specialitate care sa nu aiba parti-pri-uri... :(

Coco sa stii nu este nimic rau sa o compari o placa video doar cu o singura alta placa video, sau chiar cu nici una, doar sa arati ce poate acea placa. Eu de plida in loc de o megacomparatie prefer sa vad cum se comporta o placa video la diferite frecvente ale procesorului, astfel pot sa asez singur placa video in ierarhie. Mai sunt multe aspecte care te forteaza la un review scurt si timpul este factorul principal. In mare orice test este binevenit atata timp cat este corect facut din punct de vedere al acuratetii rezultatelor.

25-09-2009, 23:57
Tu normal ca preferi asta. La o adica si eu, de ce nu? Dar nu la noi se referea observatia mea de mai sus (sau la oricine altcineva care mai citeste mai multe teste despre un anumit produs), ci ma refeream la cei care se informeaza exclusiv de pe un anume site. Iar comportamentul majoritatii acestora este de a arunca un ochi peste grafice si de a citi 2-3 propozitii din concluzie.

In acest fel, acesti cititori pseudo-informati de catre site-ul in cauza (daca sunt dornici sa faca o achizitie in perioada urmatoare si daca dispun de finantele necesare) vor goli stocurile ramase de GTX 295 (lucru foarte necesar pentru distribuitorii Nvidia in Romania inaintea lansarii GT300). Deci utilitatea acestuia este alta (oare?) decat cea dorita - o informare corecta a TUTUROR cititorilor in vederea unei potentiale achizitii. Nisa de cititori super-informati era oricum acoperita de site-urile straine.

LE: iar apropo de timp, ia uite aici (http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/259688-post16.html.) cat de rapizi au trebuit sa fie cei de la hardwarecanucks. scuze se pot gasi oricand, teste serioase si corecte mai rar.

Gigabyte's GeForce GT 220 OC Accelerator Spotted (http://www.techpowerup.com/index.php?104432) - PRIMA PLACA DESKTOP pe 40 NM DISPONIBILA IN RETAIL DE LA NVIDIA

Gigabyte's newest entry-level graphics accelerator is based on one of NVIDIA's first GPUs built on the 40 nm fab-process. The Gigabyte GeForce GT 220 OC (GV-N220OC-1G) is based on the new GT216-300 GPU from NVIDIA that features 48 shader processors, support for DirectX 10.1, and a 128-bit wide GDDR3 memory interface accommodating 1 GB of memory.

The GPU is clocked at 720 MHz, with its shader domain at 1567 MHz, and memory at 800 MHz (1600 MHz DDR). With connectivity options that include DVI-D, D-Sub, and HDMI with a gold-plated connector (merely aesthetic, as digital connections don't benefit), the card sports a cooler design similar to its custom-design Radeon HD 4770 1 GB accelerator.

Intel Shows Off Working Larrabee, Set to Take on AMD, NVIDIA Next Year (http://www.dailytech.com/Intel+Shows+Off+Working+Larrabee+Set+to+Take+on+AM D+NVIDIA+Next+Year/article16332.htm) - FOARTE interesant

Built on a multicore die-shrink of Intel's Pentium 54C architecture, the powerful new graphics chip was able to render a ray-traced scene from the id Software game, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, with ease. Ray-tracing is an advanced technique that has long been touted as an eventual replacement to rasterization in video games. Currently it is used for the high quality 3D animation found in many films.

The working chip was said to be on par with NVIDIA's GTX 285. With AMD's latest offerings trouncing the GTX 285 in benchmarks, the real question will be the power envelope, how many Larrabees Intel can squeeze on a graphics board, what kind of Crossfire/SLI-esque scheme it can devise, and most importantly the price.

A direct comparison between NVIDIA's GTX 285 and Larrabee is somewhat misleading, though, because Larrabee is unique in several ways. First Larrabee supports x86 instructions. Secondly, it uses tile-based rendering to accomplish task like z-buffering, clipping, and blending that its competitors do in hardware, with software instead (Microsoft's Xbox 360 works this way too). Third, all of its cores have cache coherency. All of these features stack up to (in theory) make Larrabee easier to program games for than NVIDIA and AMD's discrete offerings.

The GPU also still has some time to grow and be fine tuned. It's not expected until the first half of 2010. Intel is just now lining up board partners for the new card, so it should be interesting to see which companies jump on the bandwagon.

DirectX 11 GPU War Heats up Between AMD and NVIDIA (http://en.expreview.com/2009/09/27/directx-11-gpu-war-heats-up-between-amd-and-nvidia.html)


AMD announced the Radeon HD 5800 series (Cypress) graphics cards on Sep 23rd, and is now busy planning for HD 5700 series (Juniper) aiming at sub $200 mainstream market for October launch.

NVIDIA is concentrating on GT300 which is scheduled for launch in December. Though the specs are vague yet, sources suggest that AIC partners will get to design the GT300 cards themselves, which means no more boring reference cards.

Tabelul este gresit in dreptul Nvidiei - GT 220 / GT 240 nu vor fi in NICIUN caz produse din segmentul mainstream, sau respectiv performance. Acolo vor fi plasate foarte probabil actualele GTX 260/275/285, in conditiile in care se pare ca GT300 va fi doar high-end / ultra-high-end.

Pare interesanta si ,,arma secreta" AMD 5890 - ce va fi pozitionata in functie de performantele GT300.

[Rumour] Nvidia GT300 Details - Fermi Codename Revealed (http://vr-zone.com/articles/-rumour-nvidia-gt300-details--fermi-codename-revealed/7760.html?doc=7760)

It is clear that Nvidia are concentrating as much, if not more, on parallel computing rather than gaming. GT300 is expected to be a revolution, rather than the evolution Cypress was. GT300 will be large and hot, and is rumoured to be faster than the HD 5870. It is unknown as to how the GT300 will compete with Hemlock (5870 X2) - although Fudzilla suggest a dual-GT300 version is being planned. That could mean - a) A significantly cut down version of GT300 x 2; b) GT300 is more efficient than we are expecting; c) World's first widely distributed >300W TDP card. (Asus Mars is the only one thus far, though it is very much a limited edition) or d) Nvidia have to wait till the next half-node die shrink, like they did with GT200.

AMD’s Radeon HD 5850: The Other Shoe Drops (http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3650)

One thing that’s very clear in these benchmarks is that as things currently stand, the 5850 has made the GTX 285 irrelevant (again). The 5850 is anywhere between 9% and 16% faster depending on the resolution, cheaper by at least $35 as of Tuesday morning (with everything besides a single BFG model going for +$70 or more), and features DirectX11. The 5850 is a card that manages to – if at times barely – outclass the GTX285 in performance. If you’ve been waiting for a price shakeup, this is what you’ve been waiting for.

30-09-2009, 18:16
Teste ale aceluiasi 5850 gasiti si pe hothardware (http://hothardware.com/Articles/AMD-ATI-Radeon-HD-5850-Performance-Review/), hardocp (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/09/30/amds_ati_radeon_hd_5850_video_card_review), hexus (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=20481), pcperspective (http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=788&type=expert), techreport (http://techreport.com/articles.x/17652), legitreviews (http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1097/1/), guru3d (http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5850-review-crossfire/) - inclusiv crossfire) si tomshardware (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5850,2433.html).

Se pare ca techpowerup a facut o treaba foarte buna cu acea simulare a performantei unui 5850, si astfel am aflat mai devreme cum sta treaba... 5850 best-buy de departe in categoria sa, fiind mai bun ca GTX 285 si mai ieftin. Disponibilitatea e MAREA problema, asa cum remarca si fudzilla pentru Europa (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/15752/34/).

Cat despre continuarea aventurilor unui mare redactor pe planeta Nvidia...

Sunt curios ce cusur va mai avea 5850...
... am aflat e ca nu are. Adica el nu o are (http://lab501.ro/stiri/primele-teste-cu-hd5850), ca era si culmea ca acel simulacru de test (http://lab501.ro/placi-video/ati-radeon-hd-5870-vs-nvidia-gtx-295) sa nu se lase cu urmari. Dar cand o va avea, Mama Omida prezice un test plin de bale cu iz de parere de rau (sper sa nu deranjeze pe nimeni - sic! - metaforele/eufemismele mele).

Sa fie Q9400@3500Mhz > Core I7 870@4000Mhz (lab501.ro/placi-video/ati-radeon-hd-5850-micul-gigant/6)? Sau vre-o diferenta de OS?

07-10-2009, 21:03
Eu as paria pe diferenta de OS si (de ce nu) setari... si driverul poate avea rezultate diferite pe sisteme diferite ...

Dragos Saraolu
07-10-2009, 21:27
In Crysis Warhead atata timp cat procesorul este peste 3200 MHz nu prea iti mai aduce nimic in plus la FPS-uri, diferenta provine doar de la driver, 9.7 fata de 9.6, si de la Windows 7 fata de Vista SP1. In general Monstru da pe acelasi sistem de operare de ceva timp, nu este actualizat, prefera asa ca sa poata compara rezultatele obtinute de-a lungul timpului, altfel nu are referinta.

08-10-2009, 06:38
Si, totusi, exista o limitare venita din partea procesorului, la setari cu o calitate mai redusa (4xAA vs. 2xAA).

Dragos Saraolu
08-10-2009, 07:18
Ca sa constati o limitare din partea procesorului iti trebuie rezolutie mica si calitatea imaginii pe low, la detalii cu AA activat nu mai conteaza procesorul, totul tine de placa video. Diferenta in Crysis Warhead cu 2xAA si 8xAA este de cateva FPS-uri (2-3 in general), "optimizarea" jocului este de vina.

08-10-2009, 07:52
Eu as paria ca ridicarea frecventei procesorului la un 4000Mhz - 4100Mhz ar avea ca efect o crestere de ~ 2 FPS in testul cu 2xAA. Trebuie doar sa fac rost de un cooler mai rasarit, momentan folosesc unul box de la un Pentium Dual-core 2140 :D

08-10-2009, 09:59
Uite aici ceva ciudat. Cu AA 4x am 30fps, iar cu AA 16x am 33fps. :eek::bulb: Dar asta s-a intamplat doar cat am avut ATI.

08-10-2009, 11:10
16x AA nu functioneaza pe ATI, asadar tu rulai defapt fara AA :)

08-10-2009, 13:13
Mai fratilor, eu nu inteleg ce va omoriti atit cu Crysis asta?!?

Sint jocuri care ofera calitate vizuala mai buna decit el, si merg UNS pe placi nu neaparat ultra-highend, cu totul la blana, ex Far Cry 2,Wolfenstein 2, si ar mai fi de zis...

Imi pare pierdere de timp "chinuiala" asta cu Crysis, pe bune, toata lumea il da ca referinta,nu inteleg de ce...

Mie imi pare o jmekerie facuta ca sa suprainvestim in hardware, in special pe partea de grafica...

Un joc de acum 2 ani, care sa nu poata fi jucat cu totul la maxim, cu ultimul racnet de hardware din zilele de astazi, mi se pare o porcarie...:rotf:

Crysis este foarte bun ca etalon (benchmark), ai FPS-uri putine care pot departaja placile video, daca merge in asta merge orice este o sintagma din ce in ce mai des folosita. Jocul in sine nu te obliga nimeni sa-l instalezi daca nu-ti place :D.

Doua petarde cu DDR2.
Un GT220 1GB DDR3 650/1800MHz GPU/Mem costa ~260 lei. Scump daca ne gandim ca ca performanta este putin peste 9500GT si mult sub 9600GT.

12-10-2009, 22:18
Eu ma asteptam dupa unele specificatii aparute pe net inaint de lansare sa fie mai bune de 9600 GT. Cand de fapt... iar pretul este cu adevarat hilar.

Poate vor scadea preturile in curand, si poate noul GT 240 va avea ~ acel pret, aceasta fiind mai buna/proasta decat 8800 GT (http://en.expreview.com/2009/10/10/nvidia-geforce-gt240-benchmarks-surface.html) (in functie de memorie)

A aparut si un prim review pe hardwarezone.com (http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?id=3036&cid=3&pg=1) la 5770, fiind conform acestora mai slaba si ca 4870, dar mai ales ca 4890 la rezolutii mari. Mie mi se pare placa perfecta pentru cei cu monitoare de 19" (si cu oarece valente pentru cele de 22") care vor sa se bucure de jocuri directx 11 (cand vor aparea).

12-10-2009, 23:01
ar fi bine sa fie pretuite corect,altfel e no-go

nu e chiar consistenta performanta
ramane o felie de piata/performanta neacoperita cum trebuie ....le trebuie o placa pt a inlocui ce este 4890

E cam greu sa inlocuiasca 4890: 5770 are fix/exact aceeasi putere de procesare ca 4890 doar ca pe 40nm, are aceeasi cantitate de memorie, in schimb are doar 61,5% memory bandwidth (76,8 GByte/s vs. 124,8 GByte/s) din cat are 4890.

Ceea ce la rezolutii de 1920x1200 cu 4xAA sau 8xAA conteaza foarte mult.

Culmea e ca exista jocuri unde conteaza mai mult memory bandwidth decat cantitatea de memorie a placii. Ex.: in Race Driver GRID (http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,697202/Ati-Radeon-HD-5770-reviewed-DirectX-11-Mid-Range/Reviews/?page=9) in 1920x1200 cu 4xAA 4870 cu 512MB este in fata 5770 cu 1GB din cauza aceluiasi memory bandwidth deficitar, desi ca putere de procesare a chip-ului 5770 este peste 4870.

Pe scurt: 5770 este un 4890 pe 40nm dar cu un bus mai ieftin pentru memorie de 128 biti care duce la un memory bandwidth deficitar, ce nu ar putea fi compensat cu frecvente mai mari ale actualelor chip-uri de memorie GDDR5.

Cam greu de realizat inca o implementare cu bus de 192 biti. ;)

HD 5870X2 (HD 5970) Benchmarks and Images (http://alienbabeltech.com/main/?p=12606) - se pare ca nu va incapea in 80% din carcase (avand probleme si in Antec 1200); in conditiile in care 5870 este o placa super-hiper-arhi-suficienta pentru orice joc la rezolutii normale (monitoarele de 30' fiind mai anormale :D), utilitatea acestei noi placi video se va rezuma la bench-uri

The card itself is 13.5 inches long, and has problems fitting even a full sized tower case like the Antec 1200. We are told that it is not possible to put a hard drive next to the card in this case.



O problema imensa atat pentru ATI cat si pentru Nvidia este insa asta... TSMC 40nm yield issues resurface, CEO promises fix by year-end (http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20091030PD209.html)

30-10-2009, 13:23
dupa screenul din gpu-z placa pare o 5850X2,nu 5870X2(uitati-va la frecvente) .Anyway,placa e un animal:evil:

30-10-2009, 13:47
Nu are nicio legatura frecventa. GTX 295 e 2x GTX 260 si frecventele sunt total diferite.

30-10-2009, 13:52
de fapt GTX 295 e formata din doua 275;)

30-10-2009, 13:59
Citez de pe un forum:
Varianta GTX 295 standard este formata din 2 placi GTX 260 Pe vremea cand aparuse GTX295, GTX275 nu era nici macar in planuri.

30-10-2009, 14:39
Citez de pe un forum: Pe vremea cand aparuse GTX295, GTX275 nu era nici macar in planuri.

da,dar frecventele sunt identice,plus ca fiecare "miez" din gtx 295 are 240SP,adica exact ca gtx 275;)

EVGA: Announcing the GTX 275 CO-OP PhysX! (http://www.evga.com/articles/00503/)


31-10-2009, 16:02
GTX 275 CO-OP PhysX sau cum sa faci bani din Physx si sa vinzi la suprapret 2 pastile din fosta generatie.

Baieti destepti cei de la Nvidia, se pricep la vrajeli... pacat pentru ei insa ca au scos din driver-ul lor de windows 7 posibilitatea rularii Physx cand o placa ATI este prezenta in sistem (windows 7 permite rularea simultana a 2 placi video cu driver-e diferite). Era sansa lor sa ii convinga pe detinatorii de placi ATI sa cumpere la nevoie si o placa secundara Nvidia (gen GTS 250) pentru jocuri cu efecte Physx. Dar ei nu, Betmen, Betmen...

HD 5950 is not a dual-GPU card (http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=hp&hl=en&js=y&u=http://tweakers.net/nieuws/63406/radeon-hd-5970-benchmarks-gelekt-en-hd-5950-is-geen-dual-gpu-kaart.html&sl=nl&tl=en&history_state0=) - cica 5950 nu ar fi dual-gpu, ci doar un 5870 cu mai multe conexiuni si poate overclock-at

Nvidia's Geforce GT 240 launches November 17th (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/16205/1/) + GeForce GT 240 details slip through the cracks (http://www.tcmagazine.com/comments.php?id=30630&catid=2) - daca pretul e la fel de mare cum a fost al lui GT 210, inseamna ca sunt defecti alde producatorii de software de la Nvidia

the GT 240 features 96 Processing Cores, a 128-bit memory interface and 512MB or 1GB of GDDR3 memory, PhysX and CUDA support, a single-slot cooling system, and D-Sub, DVI and HDMI outputs. In terms of clocks, the upcoming card has its GPU, shaders and memory set to 550, 1340 and 1700/1800 MHz (512/1020 MB VRAM).

The GeForce GT 240 is expected to be released later this month so expect more info (and pictures of the card) very soon. Not excited eh? Same here.

Sapphire officially announces the Vapor-X HD 5870 and HD 5750 (http://www.tcmagazine.com/comments.php?id=30657&catid=2)

Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 1GB Vapor-X graphics card: the best in the world? @ hexus (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=20948&page=2) - eu prefer varianta stock - pentru genul asta de racire trebuie sa ai o carcasa foarte aerisita (Antec 200, 300 etc); iar overclock-ul slabutz se poate obtine foarte usor si cu cea stock

the dude
03-11-2009, 14:02
Poate e mai silentioasa sau mai rece. Sau poate amandoua :P

03-11-2009, 22:42
Eu am hd5850 si cred ca racire e cam aceeasi la hd5870. Crede-ma... e silentios doar la 25%. La 30% se aude clar, iar la 50% e agasant ptr mine.
Deci... vapor-x va fi o mana cereasca.

04-11-2009, 13:46
si de unde stii tu ca vaporx va fi silentioasa la 25%? de unde stii ca vei putea controla turatia ventilatorului inclus? eu deocamdata vad doar o placa cu nitel oc care impinge cam tot aerul cald in carcasa, plus un pcb mai scurt si foarte probabil mai ieftin de produs. Si spre deosebire de voi am citit (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=20948&page=2) ca...

the Vapor-X is a touch louder than AMD's stock cooler

Nvidia Fermi to be demonstrated in January? (http://vr-zone.com/articles/updated--rumour-nvidia-fermi-to-be-demonstrated-in-january-/7983.html?doc=7983) - din pacate pentru ATI aceasta intarziere nu inseamna mare lucru, in conditiile in care placile lor nu prea sunt disponibile

Today's reports claim Nvidia are likely to have working samples not before 2nd week of January 2010. Xbitlabs speculates an actual release for February 2010. HardOCP is less optimistic, suggesting any "real availability" is unlikely even for March 2010, in a best case scenario.

Sapphire HD 5870 and HD 5750 Vapor-X Review @ occ (http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/sapphire_hd5870_5750_vaporx/) - 5750-ul celor de la Sapphire nu pare a avea un pcb diferit fata de original (http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/radeon-hd5770-hd5750_4.html#sect0), desi e de culoare neagra (http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/sapphire_hd5870_5750_vaporx/3.htm) :D, doar racirea pare putin imbunatatita.

In schimb, ceea ce e foarte interesant e pretul variantei de 512 MB de HD 4750 (http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/sapphire/sapphire-hd5750-512mb-ddr5-128-bit/) - mi se pare cam pomana la vreo 360 RON

Intra in scena si GTS 240 (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/16297/34/), insa preturile desi par mai bune ca data trecuta (GTS 220), parca sunt din nou mari (adica intre 70 si 90 de euro in functie de tipul memoriei - DDR5/DDR3 si racire) in raport cu un 5750 de 512 MB. Astept oricum testele...

06-11-2009, 13:44
Nu te bucura de acest gen de "preturi-pomana" , romanasul are grija de asta
Au pus un pret informativ si in momentul cand il vor aveea practic mai discutam

07-11-2009, 18:58
mda... raspunsul celor de la itdirect a fost ca nu stiu cand va fi disponibila, avand informatii legate doar de cea de 1 GB - peste 2 saptamani.

Tinand cont ca Nvidia nu prea e genul care sa fie de acord cu rularea tehnologiilor sale precum Physx pe alt hardware decat cel Nvidia, cred ca asta se va si intampla.

AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5950 makes an unscheduled appearance (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=21080) - 2*5850, destul de lunga; daca racirea ramane aceea atasata, ma surprinde ca nu prea acopera zona VRM.

Lucid Hydra 200 Multi-GPU Performance Revealed @ hothardware (http://hothardware.com/Articles/Lucid-Hydra-200-MultiGPU-Performance-Revealed/?page=1)

Asa cum observa cei de la brightsideofnews (http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2009/11/11/is-lucids-hydra-200-really-ready2c-or-are-they-pulling-a-fermi.aspx), toate cele 3 teste de mai sus sunt de fapt poze si informatii de la sediul celor de la Lucid. Pe scurt, probleme de driver-e (cum sustine MSI) se pare ca nu exista iar actuala varianta NU suporta DirectX 11. Mie sincer mi-e teama ca nu cumva inca o tehnologie interesanta a unei companii mici sa fie ,,devorata" de interesele economice ale barosanilor din domeniu.

Geforce GT 240 launch price is $99 (http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/16411/1/) - la pretul asta toate Physx-urile si CUDele din lume nu o vor face sa fie cumparata decat de catre cei neinformati / pacaliti de vrajelutele publicitare specifice

The memory of choice is GDDR3 at 2000MHz or GDDR5 at 3400MHz and the card will come with either 512MB or 1024MB. The emory interface is 128-bit wide and the card will sit between Geforce GT 220 and Geforce 9800GT in terms performance.

Nvidia compares GT 240 cards with Radeon HD 4670 and beats it in top 11 games, at least in the GDDR5 version.

NVIDIA shows off Fermi Tesla at Supercomputing '09 (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=21162) - demonstratia unui produs care va aparea peste juma' de an. SUUPPPEEERRRRR!!!!!!!

NVIDIA has priced the C2050 and C2070 at $2,499 and $3,999, whilst the Tesla S2050 and S2070 will go for $12,995 and $18,995 respectively. All four offerings will be available from May 2010.

Radeon HD 5970 Listed at $599.99 (http://en.expreview.com/2009/11/16/radeon-hd-5970-listed-at-59999.html) - in conditiile in care, repet, 5870 e o super-placa arhisuficienta pentru orice joc la rezolutii normale (pana in 1920*1200), cea X2 (5970) mi se pare doar de show.

18-11-2009, 17:31
Teste la gramada cu 5970, inclusiv in crossfire. Surprinde (ca limitare a performantei in anumite situatii, gen rezolutiii de 2560*1600) si nu prea (dpdv al greutatii implementarii tehnologice a unei latimi de 512 biti) in anumite cazuri latimea de banda de ,,doar" 2*256 biti... oricum, repet, cine isi ia o placa din asta are mari probleme cu gagalica, avand in vedere cat de bun e 5870-ul. Cum ziceau Anandtecii, e OVERKILL pentru un singur monitor.

Nvidia adds GeForce 310 and 205 to its OEM offer (http://www.tcmagazine.com/comments.php?id=31191&catid=2&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+tcmagazine+(Techconnect+Magazin e)&utm_content=Google+Reader)

Before you ask, no, the 310 is not even remotely Fermi-based, it's simply a renamed GF 210 with 16 Processing Cores, a 589 MHz core clock, 1402 MHz shaders, a 64-bit memory interface paired up with 512MB of DDR2 memory @ 500 MHz.
Cu toate astea eu inca sper ca redenumirile nvidioate sa nu mai fie practicate pe viitor si in zona mainstream...
