  • The market goes to fast !!

    I find on a few other forums, that motherboard NVIDIA DX11, PCIE 3, DDR3 is scheduled for early 2009
    And Windows Vienna is coming out sometime next year aswell apparently.

      The current release date of the Windows 7 operating system is expected to be in late 2009, early 2010, returning to the 3-year pause between desktop operating system versions that was common at Microsoft for all Windows versions prior to Windows Vista.

      I guess we will see. Vista was late and they were already working on Vienna. Of course, you can arge that Vista was late and Microsoft has traditionally backed off on their releases due to not meeting their objectives. Who knows.

        Actually, microsoft released a press statement like last week that reports about Windows 7 in 2009 are false, and 2011 is the target date.
        But either way, Vista was supposed to be out years before it was actually released, so even if they said 2009, might end up 2012. :)

        As far as the other stuff, DDR3 is out and has been for a while, and is just way too expensive for pretty much everyone to think about considering how cheap DDR2 is.

        PCI-EX3 isn't something to worry about, cause today's graf. cards can't even come close to maxing out PCI-Ex1, and for the most part all that is special for PCI-Ex2 is that it can provide more power to a card, so you don't have to run 2 power wires to the top of the line cards.

        And don't get started on DX11. Lots of devs still haven't gotten a handle on 10 yet, and even though DX10 cards say so on the box, they still suck at actually running the games on max.
        Got my fingers crossed the new Nvidia 9800 out next month will change that.

          too bad the 9800 will probably cost one arm, a leg and half of the other leg.

            Actually, with the competition from ATI/AMD and them selling for cheaper, Nvidia is having to cut prices. Have you noticed a bunch of GTX's are well under the $500 mark now, trying to deal with the 3870X2 threat.

                  Thought I would pass on this article pretty on topic here from last week at Tom's Hardware, about PCI-E VS. PCI-E 2.0
                  http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/01/...ess/page5.html


                  "To get right to the point, upgrading from PCI Express 1.x to 2.0 is not worthwhile right now. The current crop of graphics cards just doesn't tax the PCI Express bus enough for a difference to be visible. All test cards, across the board, showed a minor performance boost of 1 to 2 percent, with the HD2900 XT reaching better results despite the fact that it doesn't have a 2.0 interface. This improvement may be caused by the newer chipset or the higher memory speed. Also, a difference of 1 to 3 percent is also slim enough to be considered within the margin of error for testing."

                    Ironically, they said the same thing about going from AGP 8x to PCI-E 1.0/1.1 all the way back when. It still makes me wonder if the current graphics crop maxes out the AGP 8x bus...
