Not stop making the GF4... but In one week nVidia is officially announcing the NV30 at Comdex, which is supposedly twice as fast as the GF4TiOriginally posted by Beej
There's nothing new coming out from nVidia, nothing that would mean they would stop making the GF4Ti anyway.
Probably not until the next PowerMac upgrade, becasue it will use 8x AGP... which PowerMacs dont currently support.Originally posted by Kid Red
Really? When do you think a mac version would be shipping? Looking to possibly upgrade my GF4MX in my dual gig.
Exactly, most motherboards still have "only" AGP 2x/4x. Very few (even a lot of "brand new" MBs) have AGP 8x. Most likely the cards will be 4x/8x. Though aren't the GF4 Ti cards 4x only? The high end nVidia cards won't even work in an AGP 2x slot? I doubt they'll go with 8x only, which as MacBandit said, will soon be replaced by something else. But you'll probably have to have at least a 4x AGP slot (which a QS Mac does have).Originally posted by MacBandit
The current ATI9700 is an 8x AGP board but is backwards compatible to 4x AGP. I believe this is the standard for 8x AGP cards. Which means that the soon to be released NV30 will also be useable in a 4x AGP slot.
The card will be maxed but the AGP bus will not be saturated. The first previews that John Carmack showed here a couple months ago with an ATI9700 where running very well and was very playable. I don't know the exact fps but I would guess around 100fps.Originally posted by GetSome681
Just wait till DOOM3....it'll be saturated. I know this...I've played an extreme unfinished alpha copy, and the top of the line pc barely averaged 20 fps.
Get over it we're just having a friendly discussion here. We realize this is long term and since this upgrade isn't one of necessity why buy now when you can wait until next year.Originally posted by insidedanshead
I can't believe you all are already talking about a next revision of the 9700.. WE DONT EVEN HAVE THE 9700 on the mac yet... ugh it disgusts me.. and 400 for a geforce 4 ti .. apple get real.. i'm starting to get fed up with all this.
Sure enough. I hadn't noticed that. Well you have to get a moderator to move a thread. There is no way for even the starter of the thread to do so.Originally posted by MacCoaster
BTW, this thread should be modded. GF4 thread in Software? WTF.
