    The GTX 512 looks to stomp over a card that has taken ATI a LONG time to develop. Nvidia see that they got beat with the x1800xt and then just *boom* Nvidia come back with this: a 512mb card almost identical to the card that they brought out in JUNE, but that goes like hell.

    Bit unsure of what was up with the Farcry benchies mean but hey I don't play that all that much

    ATI's next gen best turn out to be better

    Nice review. Especially like the graphs and the 'playable settings' report.

    Wonder what they got for sticking this in though?

    Agreed with the far cry bench.. seems a bit odd.

    Nice card though. There's an interesting, if slightly rumour-based and probably inaccurate editorial on the creation of the 7800 gtx 512 here:

    Sounds like the real champs are the foundaries who managed to get better than expected parts out.

    It certainly is a driver bug in Far Cry, which is why I said so. I try not to make this stuff up too much

    When I get back home (out of the office right now), I'll show the performance on a driver that works. I had to test the NVIDIA boards with 81.89, at least to begin with, for obvious reasons.

    I never claimed you made anything up, I'm saying it's blatent that you have something not setup right. The driver excuse is only a partially acceptable answer as Guru3D used the same EXACT driver, same chipset based motherboard, same OS, same vid cards, and got MUCH better results then you for the GTX512 in Farcry. I think this bug is MORE then a driver issue, it's a configuration issue. Sorry bro, but driver bug isn't floating my boat

    Why are you suffering for it and not them? Because something they configured right and you didn't. Well, let me rephrase that tho, As I said before, it may NOT be something you configured, but instead something you FORGOT to check, memory timings. That's one possibility, another could be something like PCI latency or any number of configurable settings that may be misbehaving for you. I JUST ordered a BFG 512GTX also, and as soon as it arrives (god only knows when, it's on backorder ), I'll test it myself on the same mobo your using. It may take a week or 2 till i get it since I cheaped out and choose ground shipping after the freaking cost of the card couldn't afford 2nd day

    I think the review that actually sold me on this card had to be the Guru3D review, thier conclusion tickled me SOOO much I just had to have : "What about Quake 4 then ? A 1600x1200 resolution with 8xAA and 16xAF .. yes, 78 FPS ! Craaazeey ! It's the fellowship of cards, Mordor in your box !" Mordor in your box. Damn, that amused me so damn much I just had to see for myself...

    I used UniWS. The Widescreen Gaming forums are invaluable if you game on displays like the 2405.

    There was no system misconfiguration. There's a driver bug when benchmarking using the commandline settings that I use, for the farcry.exe. Simple as that! Guru3D likely don't use the same commandline or recorded demo that I use.

    AH HA then. Okay, NOW it's clearer. If it's simply that then I would think then that it might benefit both of your sites to contact them and compare your results and testing methods since cooperation of that sort would work to improve both sites. I don't know what kinda relations Hexas has with Guru3D, but I would hope that kind of collaberation could be doable as it would certainly make things easier for us end-users to not have to question one site because it's suffering a bug. It could be your method is superior to thiers, or vice-versa, but I would think this big a difference with the same game, same drivers, almost exact same hardware all together, would push you guys to find out or at least explain WHY your methods are bugged and thier's arn't, yet you still insist upon using the bugged method over the working one. This could REALLY help you avoid this in the future I think.

    As sombody who does reviews like you should know, it's better to NOT publish questionable results then to pubish them and catch flak for something that is unique to your methods of testing. I'm not coming down on you guys as I ENJOYED your review and found it informative thruout, but I HAVE to say something about those Farcry benches as they're just to far off to justify your using that custom method your using unless you can show that method to be superior and bug free.

    Thanks Hexus

    I love the fact that you put graphs up for 1920*1200.

    Keep it up!
