2.4 Athelon??? since when were these on the market? You talking about a Athelon 2400+? Cause thats really just 2ghz which still is nothing to laugh at but its a ways away from 2.4.

Yep, if you line up the FX's test against the Ge4 against the Radeons against the Ge4, the radeon actually performs better. It's scary. I don't know what it's like.

Vimp, does the 2.8 come in at 2.4? It'd be damn close.

Yeah ATI is making a R350 card, a new card thats better than the R300 (radeon 9700)... It's been slated for 2nd quarter 2003 release, or so the talk is from the lads at rage3d.com (the release date that is, the R350 is beeing developed confirmed by ATI) The R350 chip is surposed to have better specs than the GF FX ultra

Thanks, tho I think that the 9700 pro may already outperform the fx! I think I'll save up for this R350 chip instead of the fx.

A 2.8ghz P4 is clocked at 2.8ghz but Athelons clockspeed is not the same as the number they give it. The highest Athelon I've seen in stores so far is the 2600+ which is 2.13ghz.

However it is true that an Athelon's clock speed directly compared to a Pentium's clockspeed is not very informative as to its performance since in games and 3D rendering specificly an Athelon of much lower clockspeed compares very well with a much higher clock speed Pentium 4. This is mainly for 3d intensive games only though.

Yeah, that's true...we're all to lazy to type 2100+ though, and the athlon is up to 2800 now, BTW
