    posted new demos on ati's website...

    please note... the demo's EXE files will only run if you have appropriate software/hardware... :)

    http://mirror.ati.com/developer/demos/r9800.html

    btw... the mpegs of both the demos do not do justice to the actual demos... all I have to say is WOW... :)

    in a manner of speaking... not anything hardware or software related other than adding extra copper coolers (passive) to aid heat dissipation from memory and the little thinger @ the back :)

    i would be really interested in what NVIDIA is doing. they can not be happy with this. how will they respond. the FX is DOA, and as far as i can see the $100 million to bring it to market was a waste. how far down can nvidia go before it falls.

    its actually 400million dollars... but its for the entire nv3x lineup... not the nv30 alone...

    the nv35 is being touted as a more powerful contender and likely with its supposed 256bit memory bus and higher clock speeds... it should be a nice card...

    the problem remaining is what nvidia chooses to do with the core... as it stands the market is flooded with powerful and low priced components that are on a daily basis getting a LOT of press... losing market share will not make nvidia shareholders happy therefore I expect them to get a little more hungry and have better components... or at least more realistic marketing.. in the latter half of the year...
