  • ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT Performance Benchmarks

    After several delays, AMD plans to launch its long-awaited R600 graphics processors. AMD is currently briefing select members of the press on its R600 architecture in the Tunisia, but there is no embargo date on the R600 for DailyTech -- we can show you benchmarks now.

    AMD plans to launch a completely new DirectX 10 lineup with the flagship ATI Radeon HD 2900 XTX. Other models such as the Radeon HD 2900 XT, Radeon HD 2600-series and Radeon HD 2400-series will also join AMD’s DirectX 10 family after the initial high-end launches.

    ... but on Linux you can likely look for it performing about the speed of a NVIDIA GeForce 7800GTX.

        Saturday look for an interesting article on ATI's performance versus NVIDIAs.

              Lower than a 6800? Is this why amd keeps delaying the cards?

                They are not delaying the cards for Linux reasons.

                  Linux drivers might suck, true, but the thing's gonna kick ass, as far as I can see. The 2900XT is holding its own against the 8800s, and the XTX is quite a jump again.

                    Actually, after Michael's response, I'm beginning to suspect that with
                    the new beta drivers the r600 will be kicking the 8800's butt in linux
                    too
