The GPU/mem seems to max out at 544/560, I start to see
glitches at 551/573. My 3dmark03 score is 8275.
This on a 13 multiplier P4, 3.37 Ghz, 512MB DDR.
All fsaa/anio turned off.

Whilst I have not seen many posts from users of this card I would have
expected a much higher score than yours, with the spec of the rest of your
machine being as it is.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I'd be interested to hear what
other people are getting for scores and what their processor is.

I also ran timedemo1 from Call of Duty, 1280x1024. My old card,
nvidia 5600u did 58 fps, the x800 did 139. The biggest win is
Far Cry. On the opening scene, 5600u did 13 fps (static)
x800 does 91! In a timedemo (benchumall) it was 11.7/53.5 fps for the
5600u/x800 in Far Cry.
As to 3dm03, I just saw that I was running 2x/2x fsaa/anio on my openGL
control panel. I'll try again with 0x/0x to see if it matters.

BTW, the x800 was WAY underclocked OOTB. It was set to
only 475/450, but with Rage clocking til, it does 544/560,
and went from 7035 to 8275 in 3dm03.

I'll definitely be doing it if I decide to keep this
card.

I reran 3dm03 with the OpenGL tab turning off
anio and fsaa, previously they were set at 2x.
My score rose to 10105 from 8275.

In your original message you said "All fsaa/anio turned off". Also,
3DMark2003 is D3D, not OpenGL.

I reran the test, and the OGL score is unaffected
by the OGL tab. I believe I must have changed the D3D tab,
so my scores are 8275/10105 with fsaa and anio set to 2x/0x.

Thanks for pointing out my error.

I feel better seeing a score of 10105 than 8275! How does it feel with
games in general compared to what you had before? The 12 pipelines must
be awesome.

Thanks for your update.

Just to clarify....

You now get 10105 in 3D 2003 with no AA or AF and using the 4.5 drivers,
with the rest of your machine spec as previously stated...?

You mean the X800XT ? Isn't that the "Platinum" card ?

Yep. The specs and features list show it does even video capture
direct. It's also the faster card, etc. I want it :) !!!!

The biggest win was Far Cry. With my 5600u, many scenes were
a slide show. My timedemo went from 11.8 to 58.5, I am VERY impressed.

Not only that, but actually, I need still more vid card!
You see, I also upgraded to the Apple 23" Cinema HD LCD
display that is 1900x1200 res. In Ut2004 and Call of Duty,
I run at 1900x1200 and it's smooth as can be. I average
100 fps in CoD, never goes below 60. Same with UT2004.
But, Far Cry is another story. At 1280x768, it's amazingly smooth,
around 90 fps all the time. At 1900x1200, I'm getting
40+ fps, but I feel a definite lag in mouse response. Playable,
but doesn't feel crisp like 1280x768. So, I figure I'll need
the x800xt for Far Cry.
I can get a full refund until June 26, hopefully the xt will be out by then.
BTW, the image quality on this monitor playing Far CRy is breathtaking,
it's like a different game.

That's excellent. I heard a lot of bad things about the GeForce FX
series, and when I hear experiences like this, it re-enforces those
comments. Great to hear that the X800 Pro has provided that tremendous of
a boost for you!

I saw one of those one day totally by chance a couple of years ago,
although I'm sure the tech has advanced since then. Anyway, I could not
believe how impressed I was at the time. It cost an arm and a leg ($6000
Canadian plus sales tax), but there was no denying how awesome it looked
and I really appreciated the wide screen aspect. It had a real presence
about it overall.

That's incredible. I wonder how much CPU a person will need to fully see
the Pro and XT cards to their full potential.

Thanks for relaying your experience and enjoy the new card! I have a 9800
Pro and do most of my gaming in 1024x768 with AA and AF turned off, so I'm
going to sit out this round of the battle between nVidia and ATI (chances
are I will build a whole new box from the ground up in late 2005 or early
2006). Still, I appreciate hearing of these sorts of positive upgrade
experiences!

Where on earth did you buy it where they will let you return it like
that?..

I found one at CompUSA online for $399 but in about 5 hours they where
sold out again. :( I didn't act fast enough to grab it.

My Sammy 19"
LCD is the best around now, and yet this monitor beats it.
The improvement is a very noticeable decrease in the smearing that
all LCDs have. Also, the colors are more natural on the apple.

Dunno, but I am almost totally CPU bound in UT2004. I get only
a 20% improvement in timedemos. Yet in Far Cry, I get 91 fps in
my reference scene (the first map) and just 13 fps with the nvidia.
This at 1280x1024.

Thanks for the kind words, happy gaming!
