    X1800XT Crossfire vs GTX/GTX512Mb Image quality included

    Firing Squad have done a nice thing and rerun most benchmarks and finally showed us some IQ comparisons. Also unilike previous benchmarks latest drivers used for both cards.

    This is basically all you need to know:
    Gamers looking for the best combination of image quality and performance though should definitely consider ATI’s CrossFire solution. Because as it stands now, ATI’s got the edge over NVIDIA when it comes to this.
    In a graphically-intensive game like F.E.A.R for instance, at 1280x960, performance is nearly cut in half for the GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB SLI setup, from 93 fps to just 42. Meanwhile, the X1800 XT CrossFire is cranking along at 51 fps, a drop of just 16%, or 10 fps!

    also overclokers.co.uk is doing a sale on X1800 cards including Crossfire version, if you are looking to buy this a good time.

    PowerColour X1800XT 512Mb @ £279.95 - Usual price £364.19
    PowerColour X1800XT Crossifre Edition @ £314.05 - Usual price £399.44

    Well no-one seems bothered enough to have rated them on the hexus trust system - everyone moans but no-one actually seems to put down the feedback in a constructive system that we can use to verify.

    Looks like a great article, Firingquad are pretty good, ill have a look tonight when i get in from work.

    In my opinion, Nvidia cards are great for benchmarks, and for gaming without AA/AF, but once you crank up the details, they start to drop off a lot. ATI cards are a lot stronger, and comparing my 7800GTX and X1800XT is no contest, the ATI card blows it out of the water in gaming.

    ATI have always had one over on Nvidia in IQ since the R300, it's got smaller ever since, but the difference is still there.

    Crossfire would be cool, but i don't really think i wanna spend another 350quid on another card, and get a new mobo. One card is good enough for me. Im in the process of getting some quality cooling for it, so ill be running it around 730/1700 hopefully, which will kick ass.

    Dual GPU solutions are still a bit OTTif you ask me. Theres also the heat issue with 2 X1800XT cards.........

    OT: I think they were on here - they asked (demanded) for it to be removed because it was so bad!

    Back to topic, I think from what I've seen and read that ATi are coming back with a vengance. I just wonder how much damage their brand took when they faffed around with crossfire - I mean I'm an avid fan of having the latest and greatest, but because of the way ATi handled themsleves, I now naturally associate the best with Nvidia, period.

    Ah that explains it. Would be nice if there was a note explaining that on the site.

    I think ATI have always been good at the total experience, and can't wait to see what the next gen cards bring.

    Having said that, I've found NVidia to be better price/performance in the long run (not when cards come out, but 1-2 years after they've come out which is my usual purchase point). I just wish the drivers were better (I can't run the 80x drivers because of bugs in the games I play )

    What right do OCUk to have the comments about them taken down?

    It's user comments, from Hexus, if they weren't a crappy company, they wouldn't get bad comments.

    X1800 isn't old technology, infact it's new technology as you call it, it's a brand new GPU, built from the ground up, as opposed to the 7800, which is basically a 6800Ultra, with more pipes, better memory, and higher clocks.
