  1. Hello, ive been trying to get some information about R600, but internet is confusing xD
    how would it be?
    how much would it cost?
    And ive heard that would be better than the G80, cause of the 512bits 120 GB/s rate transfer, 64 unified shaders, etc, etc....but how much expensive? xD

    The X2800XTX is going to be ~$600US. It is better than the G80 with 64 Unified Shaders doing 4 ops per clock so theoretically 256 Unified Shader ops per clock cycle. It will run at 700/2400 and will have 153.6GB/s memory bandwidth. It should be about 1.5x more powerful than G80. G81 should be a little more of a competition, but the R600 should still be better than the G81 aka 8900GTX.

    This thread is a bit old MetalX, isn't it? :)

    Still, nice info.
