ATI and NV both are slated to release specs on their newest technology in the next month or so...it's what makes the world go 'round.

Why would they waste time on a older... than for say 9800 board?

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Thank's for the Performance figures EFG_beber.
The 850 XT look's to be a true performer.
I'll have to read up on it it a little more.
I was thinking a while back about changing over to the 800 ATI but held off till I saw more info from the people who had it running in their machines.
Thank's Again for the Information.

well, the X800 is essentially a boosted 9800.

So I figured that an X850 might be a boosted 9500. Just adding or replacing a few chips on a card is an easy way of making money I think.

But the performance seems to be out Gunning even the 6800 Geforce Ultra... although it's fairly close with PF.

It's a slightly overclocked X800XT PE. Nothing to get excited about.
