My HD2400 should beat it's .... in benchmarks (it's the next generation, iteration, and therefore an improvement and refinement).

Sadly, no. Product ranges overlap each other. I inquired at the Wilder Security Forums and the answer I posted above is based off another person's answer.

Just look at the HD2400 and x1950. No comparison, price-wise. Google Shopping lists the HD2400 at around 50 to 100 bucks.

And as for Chappy, well, I got confused as to *who* I was referring / replying to.



Correct - even when the 9000 series of nVidias were out, the 8800GTX was still the monster card to have - for the most part.

Now, I'll bet even money that hte 4870 will blow the pants off that x1900, jsut as I know my GTX260 will outperform most 9800 series cards as well.
i've never seen a flagship card from a previous generation beat a current gen flagship card.

i've never seen a flagship card from a previous generation beat a current mid/high end card.

X1900GT vs HD 2400 is comparing a high end card from a previous generation to the lowest end value card of the current gen. and still, i would take the HD 2400 over the X1900GT any day. it has lower power consumption and has significant architectural advancements. it may not beat the X1900GT in straight frame rate, but frame rate isn't everything.

now, in the case of a X1900GT vs 9800GT, it's no comparison. you can't compare them on any level whatsoever. the X1900GT literally has ancient technology compared to the nvidia 9000 / ati 4000 series.

however, let me throw this into the mix... i'm not sure how much you can get the 9800GT for, but retail they are about $130, for about $10 more you can find an ATI 4850HD, which is a better card and should have a longer lifespan than the 9800GT in terms of compatible games.

If frame rate isn't everything, then what is? I know in terms of power consumption next generation cards generally win; attribute it to die shrinks. I would personally take the x1900GT; it gets a 5.8 in 7 compared to the HD 2400's 4.1.

As for an x1900GT and a 9800GT, the x1900GT will fall behind the 9800GT. Not by a long shot, however it will perform moderately worse than the 9800GT.

why throw out such misinformation? not by a long shot? the 9800GT scores over 15,000 in 3DMark06 where the X1900GT scores just over 4,000. when you consider a 100 point gain in 3DMark06 is a significant improvement; how is over 10,000 point difference only performing moderately worse?

it's like saying a kia is only moderately slower than a ferrari.
