01:38 <zombie67> any opinions on xfx vs. saphire?

01:39 *** x_ has joined #boinc

01:45 <MerryTughan> I think XFX has better warranty and packages, but I've never experienced a problem with Sapphire with the one card I've purchased from them.

01:46 <x_> would a 32mb radeon 7200 be able to run boinc or no?

01:46 <x_> agp.. 4x or 8x i think

01:46 <MerryTughan> No.

01:46 <MerryTughan> HD 3xxx or later, and PCIe.

01:47 <x_> thx.\

01:47 <x_> I never knew how much faster my core2 duo was than my p4 till i started using boinc

01:47 <MerryTughan> Imagine when I moved from a P4 to a Core 2 Quad then. :P

01:47 <x_> which one?

01:47 <MerryTughan> Q6600, and overclocked.

01:48 <x_> my laptop is a 1.83mhz

01:48 <x_> just regular old intel

01:48 <x_> but it works

01:48 <MerryTughan> I got mine up to 3.3-3.4GHz.

01:48 <x_> nice.

01:48 <MerryTughan> Stock is 2.4GHz.

01:48 <x_> its a t5550

01:48 <x_> yea my p4 and my celeron are both 2.4ghz seems to be a popular clock speed for intel.

02:03 <zombie67> xfx offer two versions for 5870

02:03 <zombie67> 850 and 875 mhz

02:04 <zombie67> $410 vs $428

02:04 <zombie67> is 25mhz worth $18?

02:06 <MerryTughan> Possibly, possibly not. You may get a good card at the lower clock that can be overclocked far beyond. Or you may get a bare pass at that clock.

02:06 <zombie67> my thinking too

02:06 <zombie67> so no way to tell

02:06 <MerryTughan> Yeah.

02:06 <zombie67> if I was xfx, and segragating GPUs....

02:06 <MerryTughan> I'd look for a more powerful cooler compared to more clock.

02:07 <zombie67> the units sold at 850 would not be the OCable chips

02:07 <zombie67> hmmm

02:07 <MerryTughan> They might be.

02:07 <zombie67> if there were left overs

02:07 <zombie67> otoh

02:08 <MerryTughan> You can occasionally get a chip sold for a lower clock because there wasn't enough demand for a higher clock, even though it can support that clock.

02:08 <zombie67> if a company like saphire sold only one bin

02:08 <zombie67> yeah, like i said, left overs

02:09 <zombie67> my line of work deals with "binning" and it makes me feel sleezy

02:09 <zombie67> ick

02:10 <zombie67> so, MT, would you pay the extra $18?

02:10 <zombie67> or go with a different vender at the same lower price, in hopes it would OC?

02:11 <MerryTughan> I'd probably go for it. It's not that much more over the price of the card.

02:14 <zombie67> 3x just bought

02:14 <zombie67> I wonder what a 5870 does on MW?

02:18 <zombie67> poorboy just got some competition

02:18 <zombie67> ;)
