nVidia Needs to get it together.

The 9500 Pro is much older, and has much lower clock speeds. BUT still manages to beat out the 5600ultra.. and at a lower cost.

WOOT ATI!

Strange. Nvidia is on top of the desktop graphics card market, and they can't seem to release a video card that stomps out ATI for good. I think that they need to focus more on Geforce, and less on the other products that they make for awhile.

I was seriously looking into buying this card recently (the 256MB version), but I read somewhere else that it isn't a worthy upgrade from a Ti4600 Ultra, so I got something else instead. The numbers on the first page of the review speak for themselves, don't they? I'm sure that the 5600 would be a great purchase for somebody interested in upgrading from a Geforce 3, with another Nvidia card.

Is the nforce 2 the best mobo you've ever seen? I would love to get my hands on one of those, but the only Intel product that is compatable is the Xbox.

The nForce isnt a mobo, it is a Chipset.

And what do you mean by the Xbox?

Well, I've never used an Nforce chipset, but I think the Xbox is basically nforce beta. The Xbox has an integrated P3 CPU, with full 5.1 Dolby encoding, an integrated Geforce 3 class GPU and fast 64MB DDR RAM (along with a hard drive). I remember that the design of the Xbox was very well planned, and I wasn't suprised to hear that Nvidia came out with a motherboard chipset similar to the successful Xbox. How different is the Nforce technology from the Xbox technology? I would love to run one of these in my machine, but alas, no support for my P4 and RDRAM.

All you said about the Xbox was wrong!LOL THe Xbox has a Mobile intel Celeron 733mhz CPU, along with a special geforce 4 mx420 with pixle shaders. The Xbox has nothing to do with an nFoce chipset, as the nForce chip sets are only for AMD.. and the nFoce sucked.. only the nFoce2 is good.

Are you saying that I don't know my Xbox? Well, in my further studies of the nforce, I came across this article (link) that you may like. This actually has some very interesting things about the nforce Xbox motherboard.

Well, I never knew the Xbox used the nForce chipset (see: http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/54/31189.html)

quote
If there is an ATI connection, then that would seem to preclude the use of an AMD chip, for which Nvidia would be the most logical partner thanks to its nForce expertise. Indeed, the current Xbox's chipset is essentially an nForce geared to work with a PIII.
