    ATI fire GL 8800?

    hi, bit of a long story but i ended up with this card i have got 2 options send it back or think about keping it.

    anyway i teseted it in 3dmart 01 and got just under 9000 with a xp2000+,256mb pc 2100 ram.

    which is double what i was getting my my mx440.

    so i would like to know what is this card? is it any good for running far cry(i can't seem to get it to load, but could with my mx440)

    or is it a designers card?
    how old are they.

    any info would be welcome.

    thanks

    It should be okay for games - maybe equivalent to an 8500LE 128Mb??

    Look here: http://www.lostcircuits.com/video/at...l8800/10.shtml

    Far Cry should run nicely at 1024x768, no AA or AF, with low-mid detail, given the rest of your system...

    thanks for the replies, i have got the far cry demo but it doesn't run it i will click start new game and it will start to load get up to about 97% and stop so i restart abd it says the fireGL driver caused a error. it is the one for windows XP from the ati site and call of duty runs very well on it.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    well, unless you're going to be doing lots of opengl CAD/CAM work, it's not going to be much use in games..

    well i finally got far cry to load, but it woul just go from a blue colour to bright greeny yellow colour and take ages to move. so i take it it can't play far cry.

    but can do call of duty.

    The card isn't designed for playing games, return it.

    Yeah, but with 2k1 it could easily be his cpu etc taking up the slack, so it's never going to be a reliable graphics performance benchmark, as he's pointed out, far cry is pretty much a slideshow.

    FireGL cards are primarily designed to be opengl accelerators for cad/cam/3dstudio etc, DX performance will be *dire*, even opengl games won't be that hot compared to something like a 9500+ radeon.
