    I hope the reason we haven't heard from Zardon in a few hours is because he's prepping more benchies for us.:) Actually, I'm pretty sure that 01 score is all we'll get but I'd still like to see the FPSs of the different GTs. I'd also like to see one of these at my front door right now (with a PCIe board, and a CPU and RAM that work in that board as I have none of it now). I'd also like to know if Catalysts have gotten to the point of AMR support as surely this card would support it....?

    Ok we have some clues here:

    "FYI: I know that I know but i'm just not telling you'll just have to wait and see
    you will find out when ever ATI gives the green to do so! But it should be pretty self evident"


    my comments: He spilled out the word "ATI" so id assume it has something to do with an ATI gpu.


    "Hmmm I'm more intresting to see Futuremark 03 or 05, as 3D mark 2001 is quite cpu bound." and he replied "and im also not meant to be posting information on the card(s) yet."

    my comments: running 2003 or 2005 would isolate the gpu from the cpu and violate NDA, but 2001 is so cpu intensive, you can skirt around NDA cause the gpu will only help in nature.


    "yes im sure he did on phase, but I doubt he beat it on air cooling without overclocking the video card(s) at all."


    my comments: Ok so we established the mystery card(ATI most likley) was stock and the p4ee powering it was a cherrypicked gem that did 4.3GHz air cooled.


    big clue: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=8426669

    4.7GHz of p4ee and 770/688 gpu clocks for 36469 vs. 4.3GHz p4ee and mystery gpu at stock(!) for 40145, this is nearly 3.7k higher. It is highly unlikley that his 4.3ee is faster than that 4.7ee. I dont even know about both being equal, can fsb and ram bandwith make up that much difference? Even if so, where do we get the extra 3.7k marks from? Nature of course! We would be talking 500+ nature. The other tests would be 100% cpu bound except maybe drag low but the gains in drag low would be minimal at best.

    Now what is capable of 500+ in nature? 6800gt/u in SLI is one possibility but its out NOW and doesnt count as prototype testing. Could ati be expermenting with AMR already? Could AMR be on x850xt? I was under the impression its too late to have AMR on x850xt because those dont support it from the get go. Thus the only conclusion left is its a gpu NEWER than the x850xt. If this is the case, I can only drool at how powerful that gpu is(especially if hes using only ONE) Hes beating a p4ee clocked 400MHz higher in a VERY cpu intensive benchmark. Feel free to add your comments.

    Nice lil tidbit Mr.Z,
    Im surprised more are not carefully reading your posts more. Also, kinda sad to see people doubt such findings. Oh well...

    "Very nice analysis and thumbnail of all the juicy stuff so far, thanks!"


    why you are most welcome. This was my analysis and deduction. My math also tells me his nature in 3dmark 2001 may be been around 600 and over 500 for sure. We would be elated if you reveal it or even give a hint, such as "was your nature at least 600 or in the 600s"


    "does anyone knwo the stats of the r520 ? i do :p"


    Is there any titbit of info youd like to share? Is there any truth to there being a 24 and 32 pipe verson? its core/ram clocks? 8 vertex shaders? the nature in 3dmark 2001 :eek:

    Of course...but I have no doubt that everyone of us would prefer to be told everything there is to know about this 'red blur.'

    This smells oddly fake,

    When can we see a non-blurry image of it?

    Also, post it on the net, On the futuremark sight, I want to see it for real

    When the NDA is lifted you silly goose.

    He can't disclose any information until the NDA is lifted... so sit tightly and wait.

    well hes already shown us plenty, a 40k score on a p4ee all on air cooling with a stock r520, if this arent fast, I dont know what is :evil:

    Wow, do people forgot about the NDA's? Its amazing enough that ATI, or whoever, has allowed Mr.Z to mention such things... so be thankful. Hate it as much as you want, though you have to appreciate such events.

    It sure is a sweet sounding setup, knowing Zardon it would be "THE" top of the line gear. Yes so I am envious, can ya blame me :p

    Looks promissing, now the question comes down to does ATI really needs to release an updated VPU? Late this year, early next year will be the time I will be doing a major upgrade, looks like ATI will be ready by them. I would love to have an ATI mobo with an ATI R520 card, kinda like my NF2 rig and 6800GT that work perfectly together. I hope this pans out for ATI and us users.

    Funny how we haven't heard from Zardon in awhile. Probably in gaming bliss right now..........lucky bastard.
