    Wow, way to pull a dodge of a valid question out of your ass....

    For what it's worth, PC Format magazine in the UK has a test of 7800 GTXs in SLI in the current edition.

    Problem is Inq also stated this, only a week back, which backs up all the other stories they wrote about nV not getting the high speed GDD3. As much as I would like to put weight on Inq, I really think they stretch the truth a bit just to get hits. mass shipment in Q1 of next year, that really isn't good for nV. Unless nV really doesn't care much about the gtx 512, which maybe the case.

    I didn't dodge it, but I noticed you didn't have a reply to my questions either....

    Since you seem to need an answer: I feel comfortable saying that my knowledge as to the yields of certain cores is 99% accurate. No, I can't offer where or how I got the information. Therefore, it is likely that you will continue to believe whatever you want, and that is fine with me as it doesn't change reality.

    Well, now I believe it is a core issue.

    Well, it certainly isn't because of anything I've said.

    How, explain the logic to me?

    Also, are you the same AlphaWolf as at nvnews?

    What? Your questions were completely going on that you deem your own answer the more logical one, which someone else my disagree. Therefore your own questions were only answerable by you. Even if your question was the more logical one, though that cant be proven anyway, you still need to provide proof for it if asked. You make no sense, and once again you prove yourself that you have no proof for what you said.

    No, you misunderstand, which doesn't suprise me as you joined a conversation that did not involve you.

    Yes it truly is 500MHz, but that still doesn't mean that your theory about the ROPs has any legs. Not by far.

    and THAT's the case.
    nV couldn't care less about the "512" they make moeny off of it as long as it's in low supply.. the fact is.. people get so blinded by the low supply.. they forget the more sensible (and cheaper) alternative available, the 1800XTOC but then again.. buying a "new high end" videocard at this time is a complete waste of money anyway.

    Inquirer evidence isn't evidence at all.

    You can always get a better product if you wait. That said, if you really want to play UE3-engined games well, better still would be to hold off on a new purchase until the NV50 is out (or G80, whatever the hell you want to call it).

    Um, yeah right, that would explain why all the vendors are selling 550 MHz parts. I mean, I can just go to newegg and get all the 550 MHz 7800 GTX card that I want. It isn't like they are on allocation or that the fastest available card is a 490 MHz OC part.

    The G70 has a nominal frequency yield of ~430 MHz with some vendors pushing their parts up about 10% by eating into the timing margins.

    Um, Low K doesn't give 30%. No where near that. At most in the upper single digits. Anyone claiming that they are getting 30% from low k is lying. Realistically the addition of the Low K process is needed just to get the normal process scaling of 25-35%.

    Put down the crack pipe and slowly start to sober up. Low K doesn't make that big of an improvement. The process transition from 110 nM to 90 nM will give in the range of 25-35% inclusive of Low K.
