  1. Confirming earlier rumors, Nvidia has officially acknowledged the existence of its non-Titanium GeForce GTX 560. While the GPU-maker wasn't gracious enough to reveal the card's full specifications, it says theā€¦

    Based on Nvidia's press release, the price of the non-Titanium GTX 560 should fall right around the $200 mark. My guess is that they will price it at $199 so that they can rightly claim that it is a sub-$200 card. Glad to see that Nvidia is bringing more performance to their mid-range line.

    *punt* It's gooooood~

    Not surprised the 9800GT is still so popular, a friend of mine up until a couple a months ago was still using a pair of 9800 GTX+ cards, and he got those not much before the the GTX 260 came out (bad timing on his behalf? *shrug*).
     
  9. Folks over at KitGuru seem to think the new card will be sold with clocks as high as 925MHz, but that sounds very strange if it's supposed to be slower than the Ti.

    SLi GTX 560Ti's struggle at 1600P, forget eyefinity resolutions.
    A certain amount of games might run ok but too many won't.

    Hey! junior be edgy -check out the Che tat on the forearm. I'm assuming that it's not a stick-on. I have a feeling the only inked skin Charlie ever got was "USDA-Not intended for human consumption".

    What's with the bottle of bubbly on the desk? junior trying to send a message that he is indeed old enough to consume alcohol legally? (assuming it's not sparkling grape juice)

    American McGee made a really fun game out of Alice in the Quake3 engine a while back. And it looks like he's doing it again with this new game. I think this demo really sold me on the card with Phys-X and I'll probably enjoy the second Alice as well. Alice looks a few years older, but still wearing the same old clothes! I guess she still shops for them at the same stores.

    Old tale, but games don't really require a whole lot of number crunching going on in the CPU. I dug up an old review that illustrated my point. Below 1280x960, a difference in CPU could be measured, but at that low level of resolution the game ran so fast that a player wouldn't notice a difference. Above 1280 the game was mostly running at the same FPS levels and waiting on the GPU to finish the frames. So your video card is still king, even more so with high resolution gaming. The CPU is just a traffic light for data.
