6800U DESTROYS x800xt in Doom3!

    Did you guys see the benchmarks of Doom3? I was surprised
    to see how the 6800U wiped the floor with both the
    6800GT and the x800xt. Perhaps I shouldn't have after getting almost
    14000 in 3Dmark03 with my BFG6800U OC. (Which is for sale, BTW.)
    Definitely a trend that will favor nvidia in future games.

    Future OpenGL games.

    JB left a note on my windscreen which said:
    This is because Doom 3 is OpenGL. ATI's OpenGL support isn't too great
    and nVidia cards perform very well.

    On the other hand the majority of games use DirectX as their API and ATI
    ATI have a track record of out performing nVidia cards here.

    If the future games you mention are OpenGL I would agree. But you would
    be wise to consider the performance of a wide selection of games before
    commiting yourself to one particular vendor.

    Why are you selling the 6800U BTW?

    It has a very minor problem displaying pre recorded
    HDTV files, and then, only on one particular station,
    CBS here in Denver Colorado.
