    keritto, Juniper has 128bit (or in theory, it could have 256bit too, but that's doubtful I suppose) membus, 192 is out of the question:

    So are you trying to say the review/preview NDA is up 9/16 instead of the rumored 9/24?

    This is just too confusing that some reviewers might get confused with the dates and press "publish" early and blame it back on AMD. :lol:

    Expand - 3 Displays
    Accelerate - faster + Tessellate
    Dominate - DX11

    I'm sure Dave's having tons of fun changing his sig and watching the forum buzz about it :smile:

    So...what happened in the UK presentation?

    I eagerly logged on, only to read discussions about rv740 and display controllers of R200....again! :(

    Dominate much likely is due to the speed of the chips running fps in the higher arena.
    New features as dx11, all nice, but speed and new functionality as 3 screen support might be a winning move by ati.

    The gamer dont see difference between 60fps and 80fps, but the gamer will notice if he can run world of warcraft on 3 screens that alone might make a huge move on Nvidia and allow for a really nice press if it works well....
    Potentially 10million people play WoW but even more play other MMOG where the future of PC gaming reside.

    Yes, I was comparing very similar chip only. RV670 is on the same process but it is a smaller chip and with some changes in the architecture. Also RV790 was specifically targetted for increasing the clock on a proven architecture, but Cypress and other Evergreen products are the first DX11 parts. Of course ATI could have learned much from RV790, but I think they will be conservative with clocks in order to launch OC parts later if GT300 will be much faster.


    It was only a speculation about how to reach the projectes "2 Teraflops" figure and how to make the HD5870 and HD5850 different enough to justify the price increase.

    keritto: Display controller (or display pipeline) creates/modifies the image, which is then transformed (by RAMDAC o TMDS) to a form, which can be accepted by the display device. I hope somebody could explain it with a better English ;-)

    People have so far kept to their NDAs, so that happened.

    The last time 4850 went on sale a week before official launch in europe, so somebody must have gotten the shaft this time. I suppose that is keeping everyone in check this time...

    Well if you confirm 1600SP, 80 TMUs doesn't add much since noone expected really different cluster organization :).
    Ok then guess I need to give up the proposal of 1280 SPs... Guess we expect moderate clocks then with lots of OC potential.
    Now, the amount of ROPs... I'd bet on 32 though.

    I bet thanks to more sophisticated SCHEDULER it will be utilized a lot better than 800SP's in RV770/790!

    Besides. who needs more for playing console ports on PC??
