We have posted news about HardOCP’s comparison of the Radeon 9800 PRO 256MB and GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. The new NV35 deserves however some more attention and we will make a list of some reviews and some comments about nVidias comeback.
One of the biggest improvements are, as we already have mentioned, that nVidia has chosen to equip the card with a 256 bits memorybus for increase the memory bandwidth. Another big advantage is the soundlevel. No more FlowFX. NV35 has, further on, improved pixel shaders which can do more work per clockcycle than earlier. This, together with new Detonator FX and so on would do the trick for GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. Below you can form yourselves a opinion if they do or not:
We will add some more during the day, you can add more tip about reviews about FX 5900 or Radeon 9800 256 MB down in the forumpost.
It has also come out a betaversion of Detonator FX 44.03 for you who is interested. You can download it here. We will within a short period update our review since many of the problem, which we discovered, in our review of FX 5800 Ultra is corrected in this driver.
