NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

It is now confirmed that nVidia will be launching the NV30 at the Comdex show in Las Vegas, between the 18th and 22nd of November. Amid speculation that the chip might not get to see 2002, nVidia have pushed as much as possible in order to open the possibility of December 2002 availability for their new chip. If this does happen nVidia will yet again rain on ATI's parade, who were dreaming of a no contest Christmas sales season.

When the NV30 becomes available it will be the first graphics chip built on the .13 micron process and is expected to clock at 350MHz to 400MHz, although nVidia are keeping a tight lid on the specifics.
Whether the NV28 AGP 8X half-breed, was launched in fear that the NV30 would not make the Christmas season remains a matter of much debate but of little importance. Once the new chip is launched nVidia will return to their graphics leader throne, until ATI reply that is.
ATI are not waiting for the NV30 though, work is well under way on their .13 micron offering, the R300, even though not much details are known about that particular effort.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

Folk... Give it a rest "Go sleep man"... WTF is that? Its Go *TO* sleep man. And about Nvidia, I still like ATi better just because they are Canadian and the R300 is still a great card even if NV30 beats the crap out of it. Besides... R350 will be out after and take the "Speed Crown" away from Nvidia.

"UseCommentsRight" yea and then the new card nvidia will make will be the crap out of the r350 its a endless sycle so stop comparing, anyway i think nvidia owns ATI they have been aroud longer and there cards actually work hahahha unlike the agp8x but on the ati 9700's

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

'go sleep man' is a completely proper sentence, sleep being a verb (same as go eat). 'Go to sleep' is using a prepositional phrase, and saying go to the state of being asleep (the same way you would say 'go to the video store). Both sentences are proper and you just got some kinda major problem.

"anyway i think nvidia owns ATI they have been aroud longer and there cards actually work hahahha unlike the agp8x but on the ati 9700's "LOL...First things first:1.) ATi has been around alot longer then Nvidia, ATi used to make other computer parts back in the 80's and slowly started towards video cards in the early 90's.2.) That 8xAGP thing, that was only seen to be on a few motherboards but that feature does work on pretty much all 8x motherboards.3.) How do you know that the 8xAGP features on the new GeForce will work? What if the newer Nivida card is slower that the R300? (I doubt that... But could happen) what would you do then?

Insiders figure the NV30 will be about 25% faster then the 9700. Not a big difference in speed terms if this is true. When compared to how the 9700 doubled the performance of the 4600ti at high resolutions and all effects turned on. The NV30 also uses 128 bit memory interface as opposed to 256 in the 9700 and the Parhelia cards. So if this doesnt change by the time the NV30 is released. It should be interesting to see how much faster it really will be over the 9700.

The current Radeon 9700 revision is a bug-ridden piece of cr@p! It was rushed out with very little product testing. It's incompatable with so many motherboards!I'm going to wait for Nvidia's next generation graphics card. I've had/got a TNT2, GeForce 2, and a GeForce 3. They all worked 'straight out of the box'!The Radeon 9700 is the new Voodoo 5- just wait for Nvidia to defecate on it from a great height!! Maybe they'll buy ATI as well! Hahahaha!

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

I think you just proved for him at the end there...The fact that manufactures lie,rush, and hustle for the short term spotlight merely indicate how much quality you can truley expect to receive in service,products, and any future dealings of anykind...they will not and cannot possibly be as stable as they would have anyone beleive, and as the trend is so far in this 'great economy', liquidate and dissolve in an extremely short period of time.I predict either after the launch of R300 or during the next product development ATI suffers the same fate 3DFX did after the release of the Voodoo 5 v5500 (without so much of the illegal patent infringement it had concerning its competition)=P

To anyone who thinks the shares of ATI will be bought up by Nvidia is stupid. they practicily own the OEM market, and from what I've seen myself the nforce motherboards are not mainstreem for shit. ATI is good because paying 400 bucks for a video card is retarded, and as long as ATI stays around, costs will be down for the consumer. And that's a good thing.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

Too many fan-boys....that know jack. Maciavellian_uk, it was a small group of motherboards that had this problem. And it was not a card issue. Get your facts straight before you post nonesense. 'it's incompatible with so many motherboards...' Where did you get that crap from? Look fan-boys, get your sh** straight......

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

so far people have said that ATI and nVidia will be gone when the next big chip comes out. but have either company gone down in the last year and a half??? n e way, this will be a pretty kool chip, nice and fast!!! this chip bodes ill for ATI if they dont get something big in soon.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

Tis Me, just go to [url removed] and look at recent news for video cards and hardware.....and ATI will have the R350 out by spring. That's the answer to the NV30. ATI'S 0.13 micron chipset. And least we forget 3-D LABS will be releasing their video card too.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

I, unfortunately, have only experienced one 3DFX card and countless GeForce cards in my lifetime (okay, slight exaggeration... 3 GF cards mebe?) so I am siding with nVidia on this one, although I am definitely sure that my opinion is not full of facts. I just go with nVidia since it has 'introduced' me to fast gaming and since I haven't experienced an ATi card I can't tell whether one or the other is better.In any case, for everyone out there, I'm sure it doesn't matter if one is ahead of the other, for they always level out in the end and I'm sure both companies have their small advantages and disadvantages.no hate.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

im not too sure whether i should buy a nVidia or ATI vcard for my next comp, i guess price vs performance, will be the major things to consider. Video Cards these days are just keeping up with the games like doom 3 which will be released sometime year (hopefully), pity it costs so damn much to keep up with the technology.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

You guys are pathetic. And you know who you are.ATI is not crap, nor is their 9700 Pro card, and I will buy one no matter what you all say.Then we will see.I didn't say it will be better than the NV30, and that issue is irrelevant. The NV30 is a newer card, and quite frankly, I would be very dissapointed with nVIDIA if it wasn't considerably faster than the 9700 Pro.I will buy an ATI to help them with their cause. They need money to get better. Right?They actually invented Anti Aliasing. Did you know that?Most of you probably do. Hehe.If you guys havent realised yet, competition is what bring progress and good prices.If you wait for months thinking: "Oh I'm waiting for so and so, so I'm boicotting all the other graphics card manufactorers because I know what I want." That's just plain ignorance and arrogance to everything else.Let me guess, all of you have only big names because they are expensive. Expensive has to be good right? Otherwise it wouldn't be expensive. Hah. That's crap. Why is it then that in time they get cheaper? Eh? ;)You all play right into their corporate bussiness nets.You all seem to have a problem with change. You feel insecure that something CHANGED in your small pathetic lives.ATI is here to stay!GET USED TO IT!HA!I'm not going to read this thread again, so I will not see what stupid responce I will get form you, so don't bother. Hehehehehe.ATI ownz.You are not in control of this one. And there's nothing you can do about it. Nothing. You are helpless. HAH!Losers...

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

i am strongly of the belief that having to have the latest fastest card is similar to the boy racers who boast about how fast they can drive - its all bollocks if you upgrade to these from a g4 or something you are throwing your money away,leave it awhile untill you REALLY need to upgrade

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

got a TNT ULTRA today from dave a mate from the local fish and chip shop - f**k me its fast!! overclocked it to 700 mhz (about twice as fast as a g4!) dont buy this new shite its actually slower than the older cards - TNT ULTRA IS THE NEW GAMING GOD OF CARDS

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

Both manufacturers are making good cards. If they didn't they would go bust.It's because of the competition that the technology takes large steps forward with every generation of chipset.And if there wasn't any competition the price would be whatever the company dictated ££££$$$$$.

Even if you did, the 9700 and ti4600 would STILL be faster as the TNT has none of the newer features that are requiresd to get high FPS.

NV30 to Make the Christmas Season

Is NV30 the codename for the next Geforce-generation? that would be awesome!!! I heard this $hit is gonna be much faster then G4. holy $hit i'm gonna buy it, I don't care if I have a G3 Ti200!!! but the first runner up is the ATI radeon 9700. NV30 must be faster then that!!!I must say INIMBRIUM has a point. why wait for a card if almost the same one is on the market.I'm not going to read this thread again, so I will not see what stupid responce I will get from you, so don't bother. Hehehehehe.ATI rulesYou are not in control of this one. And there's nothing you can do about it. Nothing. You are helpless. HAH!Losers...
