Over 20 views and not one comment?

Single slot solution, more powerful than the 2900, lower power consumption, reduced thermal output, all at a cheap price and no one has anything to say?

Ugh, well tbh I see the red pcb of an Ati card and my interest waivers a little anyway.

But I`ll be objective.

I notice they`re flavoring these in 512/512/256m models - implies to me either 1G cards never sold well, or the realization that 1G won`t be used. 764m is massive.

I don`t see the HD audio, or a hdmi output - does this also mean they mean DVI->hdmi ? That`s not a point of selling for me as u can do that with minor cards. Dunno how they work the audio, maybe there`s a connector.

Don`t like the look of the card astheticly, but after installation I could live with that.

This is however a lab model.

Seems to me the day of the dual slotted card for the current generations atleast is thankfully over (assuming the pic of the 8800gt we saw). Although looking forward, if mobo manufs take this as standard, they could mis-place key slots if the next gen re-adopt them.

Performance-wize and price-wize it could be interesting. I can`t see them wildly overpricing these, possibly a month b4 their competitor brings out their next gen, and a week after they would have brought out the solid immediate competition in the 8800gt. I use competition loosely maybe.

Well Rast my good man,

This card is set to outperform or at least equal the 2900xt, which is almost as good as the current 8800GTS.

The 8800GT will not perform as well as the current 8800GTS.

The 2950 pro is priced in the same region as the new 8800gt.

I think this might be a winning mid range card, however I remain skeptical due to the hype around the 2900 which failed to deliver and the fact we have no proof of either cards performance.

Having said that the 2950 is based on a tweaked r600 core and the GT is based on a cut down 8800 core so...

Ill pass judgment when its been through the labs.

However its either very, very cool running or that hs is diabolical.

deff looks like a mid range winner, i only think that ATI/AMD will price it too high.
