Thread: Don't buy the 8800 yet..

  1. #1
    I just got the card and although I love it, and it runs everything amazingly I still can't use vista, dx10, and there are numerous tiny bugs. Currently there is not a date set for a new driver release and I'm tempted to just throw my old 6800 back in until than.

    Pffft what a joke. That means when the DX10 cards become the next big thing everyone who wants one and currently has XP will have to get vista just to run the thing. Screw that!!

    Do you believe that MS is under some sort of obligation to port DX10 to Win98 also?

    Why would you do that?
    It isn't going to hurt the card running DX9 and the 8800 is infinitely better than the 6800, so what would be the point?

    I get what he's saying. I don't believe it's a scam but it's there probably is very little difference in making work with XP.

    It is a move to push users along to Vista.

    DX10 - you need Vista. Halo 3 - you need DX10 so you need Vista.

    I remember when Intel's Celeron (I think) ran at the same speed (or was it the cache size) as one of their Pentium's at the time. People realized it and bought the Celeron's at the lower price point.

    When Intel realized what was happening they deliberately (of course) adjusted the Celeron to go slower.

    Some things are just fluff.

    If you're an early adapter you can expect to run into some minor problems, it's just the nature of the game.

    Still the 8800 owns the 6800 in any benchmark you can imagine. I currently have a 6800 and would gladly take a 8800, I just don't have the four or five hundred dollars for a graphics card at just this point.
