Farcry PS3.0 garbage: Why does Nvidia insist on lying at every opportunity?

Discussion in 'ATI' started by rms, Apr 27, 2004.

    In other words, the famous PS2 vs PS3 farcry screenshots, intended to show
    how superior the 6800 was to anything from ATI, are a pile of crap. They
    turned down every single detail slider to the lowest setting to make one
    screenshot, then put it side-by-side with a screenshot in which every slider
    was turned up to ultra-high detail.

    The only PR I can think of that's more low-down than this is Bushco's
    slandering of Kerry's war record. Nvidia should be ashamed of themselves.

    What's your point ?

    That nVidia does not have PS3.0 hardware in the NV40 ?

    If you believe Marketing PR, I have a couple of bridges to sell you.

    BTW, you missed the complete report on the LAN party at which the 6800
    was announced. A still-unreleased version of updated Far Cry code was
    shown there.

    He's just having a hard time accepting that Nvidia is the best and fastest
    card out now.

    population dosn't know where different world geographical locations are
    , thats saying a lot! LOL Nation of people with there heads up there own

    80%? Go **** yourself. You've never even been to the USA. You can keep your
    poverty ridden, pick pocketing, filthy language speaking, shitty car
    driving, high gas price having, harry armpit having women Europe to
    yourself. If the USA is SOooOOOo bad, how come we have THE MOST POWERFUL
    ECONOMY ON EARTH? Again, go **** yourself. USA is #1, sorry you weren't
    lucky enough to be born here. It's hilarious, even in the recessions and
    shit job market times, we are still richer than the rest of the shit world.
    A lot of Americans don't know about Europe geography BECAUSE WE DON'T GIVE A
    ****.

    Well who would you beleive more, a Canadian or a Chinese salesman?

    nVidia's marketing dept, looks like they got there ethics from the CCP.

    However it is funny really, it made a lot of people here whore
    themselves out for PS3 & the 6800. It really got them thinking PS3 games
    are here and now and they have got to have one of those cards. Then to
    have someone reveal the truth they where really fucking with PS1.1, must
    be hurtfull for the trolling whores.

    Sounds like FX days all over again LOL

    Minotaur



    BTW, can we get some TECHNICAL FEEDBACK (to those that have replied)
    BECAUSE NO ONE GIVES A **** ABOUT AMERICAN POLITICS, WE ALREADY KNOW
    YOUR ALL A BUNCH OF WANKERS..

    There are whole parts of Los Angeles where you would think you were in Mexico,
    I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad thing but it's a fact nevertheless.

    The public secondary school educational system -- at least in Los Angeles -- is
    on the verge of a total meltdown. I work w/some kids in the Long Beach Unified
    School District and it's sometimes scary to see how little these kids are
    getting out of the public school system. One 10th grade student asked me today
    how to spell the word united. In Los Angeles county it's almost as if the kids
    are learning in spite of the completely f'ed up educational system rather than
    because of it. One student, also a 10th grader, told me one of her teachers
    barely teaches at all and lets the class run rampant. Note I'm NOT blaming the
    teachers here -- it's the f'ing system.

    You may not have read the full report from the 6800 launch LAN
    party...

    See the bottom few lines of the following page..........

    http://www6.tomshardware.com/game/20040424/nvidia_lan_party-05.html

    This is NOT the current V1.1 patch to Far Cry........... and it only
    makes sense to release a patch/version of Far Cry fully using PS3.0
    technology when the 6800 is available for sale to the general public.

    America became the richest country in the world with a large help from
    slavery.

    Minotaur - Don't upset the Americans. Next thing you know they will claim
    you have WMD in your closet and start bombing your family.

    I was wondering about this when I tested the "Far Cry" with GeForce 3
    Titanium 200, Titanium 4200 and 5900XT. I just couldn't spot too many
    differences, if any. Now the real question is was the 6800 tested
    with some "preview" dx9.0c? What was goofy with the whole show that
    nVidia chose to compare a low quality 1.1 water to the high quality
    PS3.0 water. That's bullshit marketing again. Dumb as well,
    considering they were basically saying their previous line of cards
    really suck comparing to the powerful 6800 line of cards.

    Got any stats to back that up? Didn't think so. Your ignorance is
    causing you to grossly stereotype people you don't know.

  20. Every since the advent of that flying technology, I've found no need to
    memorize to position of the continents. Kinda pointless information to
    retain unless you plan on walking around the world, don't you think?
