    Probably it's my misunderstanding and this test has nothing to do with nVidia's PhysX. :shock:

    FM doesn't approve GPU PhysX enabled Vantage results, so it's not exactly "nVidia oriented" - even if 11 used PhysX too it wouldn't mean it's nV oriented

    If history is any indicator no cards should be able to run 3dm2k11 smoothly for at least a generation or two. :razz:

    Could be the death knell of PhysX, to be added in Vantage and removed in '11 - a Bullet to the head?

    So does this prove that the original 6990 slide we was faked?

    So someone just made up a Power Point slide with what they wanted, took a slightly blurred photo at an angle with IS off to make it look like they were trying to get a sneak shot of some yet unrelease NDA info and then posted it up as real??? I can't believe it.

    Also, I don't know how popular that 3DMark 11 is going to be. If you were some Video card manufacturer (other than MSI) would you seriously run this demo at some sort of convention or disply booth constantly running 3DMark11 showing your competitor's name all over it? Didn't think so.

    I've left a smattering of discussion about the fake slides so that it's in the thread for posterity, but I've nuked the rest of the noise.

    975MHz for 6970? I don't expect more than 900

    I do not think the slide will provide us the true number of SIMD.

    If you look carefully there are "dot" instead of SIMD: obviously they would not yet reveal the true numbers of simd!

    That is not consistent:

    3400 GFlop/s / 1920 / 2 = 885 MHz

    1850 MTri/s / 2 = 925 MHz

    And you can forget about 1.5 GHz GDDR5 with just 6 GBit/s chips. It will be a bit lower (I guess 1.4 GHz maximum).

    New 3DMark 11 results :

    HD5870CF :X2350
    GTX580 :X1748
    HD5870 :X1234
    HD6870 :X1120
    GTX 460 :X923
    HD6850 :X899
    HD5830 :X845

    Looking at GTX 460 results vs the HD 6850 , I would say that tessellation gave the NVIDIA card a tiny boost .

    If there is some connection between the resulting framerate and the xrating of 3dmark10, then it will be a sad experience for most users! :S

    Thanks for the info! :)
