The time constraint argument is valid. Modelers are often contracted and unless they can work quickly they aren't going to make any money.

UV mapping is the most painful part of modeling. Making...

Something I noticed while looking at the screenies on pg 3 was how poorly the texture mapping was done on some models. In the first screenshot the model in the upper right that looks like a bunch of...

I blame it mostly on singles sales. "Back in the day" lots of people complained about buying an album and liking 2 songs. No need to do that anymore. Plus albums are too expensive. They need to drop...

"NVIDIA Interviews Battlefield 3 and Borderlands 2 Devs at PAX"

So, does this mean we can expect heavily tessellated flat surfaces and invisible meshes? :rolleyes:

Your overall complaint currently applies to both brands. Both companies higher end cards use too much power and run too hot, IMO. The HD6900's aren't exactly quiet or cool. I think it's because we...

Thanks a lot for taking the time to fill me in. Sounds like the ball's in Kingston's court to see what the problem is.

Hopefully it's not because it doesn't say "Genuine Intel". ;)

Do you have benches with the same system without using the SSD cache function just run from a hard drive and/or SSD? I'd be curious what the FPS was in those situations. Is the storage system only...

I wonder if the manufacturers might be able to explain it? I'm pretty sure Kingston would want to remedy this.

I'm confused. Is this showing the SSD making a difference in game frame rates? I can't read it any other way, but I've never heard of such a thing.

Rob, I just read that the latest version of Trixx supports the 5850 Extreme (voltage control, etc.). If you have the time could you try to O/C the card and report on it? Not an entire review, just...

Has to be the same family. You can combine the 6950, 6970, 6990 in any combination. You can combine any 6870, 6850 in any combination. You can't mix 6800's with 6900's though.

You will end up with...

I was thinking of mounting little mirrored domes to the case fans like they have on disco balls. Maybe I'd better do it before someone beats me to it and sells millions of them. ;)

Excellent card for the price. The 5850 was a great value when it was introduced, and at these prices, it's still a great value today.

Kudos for Sapphire not trying some rebrand scheme.

Glad to see you are getting one, Rob. When I noticed no review up I was concerned maybe nVidia wasn't supplying one. That, or you blew yours up too. :D

I'm so pleased you got one of these to have a release review of. Not as pleased as if I got one, but pleased for you, and the review we'll get from you.

I wasn't aware that there was no performance hit for 3D. I thought that each frame had to be rendered twice, and, therefore would incur a performance hit. Thanks for clearing that up for me. PhysX...

Nice job, Rob. Interesting results, as well. Especially, the power consumption. I was fully expecting the 6950, once O/C to draw more power than the 560. I also thought there would be a bigger...

I'll betch'a if he tells nVidia he'll try and bake his 480 back from the dead unless they'd rather replace it he'll get a new card. That's all they need is another "Bumpgate".

Nice cooler. It would be a better cooler at 1/2 the price though. $200 for a cooler is just too dear. :(
