ATI Radeon 9800 Pro review @ Guru3D.com

About the only question one would have to ask here is: Can it cook?

 

The ATI Radeon 9800 Pro makes no false promises. We know it's powerful. This is the card that would just about make Dirty Harry's day. That is, until ATI starts shipping it with 256MB of DDRII memory. But is it really worth the upgrade for users with Radeon 9500 Pro, 9700 Pro, or the GeForce FX 5800 Ultra? Hilbert Hagedoorn at Guru3D has the answer.

 

Scared?

It amazes me how ATI managed to advance itself way up there in that extremely competitive market. Two, maybe three years ago they had a reputation of building so-so graphics cards with mostly buggy drivers and now look again, a lot has changed since then. They certainly had an answer to that. The product, as stated my friends, is the all new Radeon 9800 Pro. A highly efficient and programmable graphics card with a computational speed that is simply breathtaking.

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 and 5200

Today NVIDIA introduced its mainstream and value graphics cards, The GeForceFX 5600 and 5200. Both of these cards will fully support DirectX 9.0.

 

"Today, NVIDIA is changing the way computer games look and feel," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "With prices as low as $79, the GeForce FX family gives every consumer and PC gamer a platform for experiencing cinematic graphics the way it's meant to be played. With more than 1.5 million GeForce FX GPUs planned to be available by the end of April, the cinematic computing era is in full swing."

NVIDIA QuadroFX 2000

The GeForce FX might have been a let down, but TomsHardware shows that the QuadroFX 2000 will be a hit in the workstation area. Here, the FX 2000 is pitted against several other workstation graphics cards.

 

Pressure is the ratio of force to area. ATi is certainly feeling that pressure right now - at least in the OpenGL area. While the GeForceFX was remarkable in the consumer segment more for its vacuum cleaner-like acoustics and muscular design than for its superior performance, the workstation variant of the NV30 graphics card is more modestly packaged. With a slower speed and a slimmed-down cooling solution, it takes things more calmly. Pitted against seven other workstation candidates in this test, the QuadroFX 2000 shows that you don't necessarily have to forfeit any power.
