Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Engadget pointed me to this site which has some benchmarks for ATI's Radeon HD 4850. Now, the 4850 is the low end card in the series, and according to these benches gets similar performance to the 8800GT. I'm gonna take these benches with a grain of salt until I see another set confirming the scores/results, but if these are real, I'm imprsessed. The only thing that they were a little but worried about was that apparently the GPU gets really hot while gaming. While all GPU's do get hot, I'm not sure if this indicates that the 48x0 series will be hotter running than previous generations.
All in all, still interesting, and I can't wait to upgrade my 7800GT
