Net-Rumour - ATI 98xx cards aren't fully DX9.0 Hardware Compliant?

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Wayne Youngman, Feb 1, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I heard someone just say that Radeon 98xx cards aren't *fully* DX9 hardware
    compliant? and that the next batch of card will be?

    What's that all about?

    Actually, that would be Nvidia's cards. ATI's cards are fully DX9

    You should probably ask this question in the Nvidia newsgroup. I'm
    sure "they" will have many "facts" about this rumor. ;-)

  6. Don't buy an ATI 9600XT based video controller unless it is a genuine retail
    ATI 9600XT, as most other "builders" that are using the ATI 9600XT chipset
    have not fully followed the ATI reference design, used old PCB's that were
    "in stock"
    to rush product out for Christmas holiday, and have not enabled the ATI

    I too was "duped'" by C.P.Technology Co., Ltd. aka/dba in United States as
    Power Color USA Corp. in purchasing a R96A-C3T in a new system I had built
    by Future Technologies International, Inc. (FTI), Great Neck, NY about two
    weeks ago, who is an "authorized" distributor/reseller" Power Color

    The cost to me between the Power Color R96A-C3T and a genuine retail ATI
    9600XT was less than five dollars, but I went ahead with the Power Color
    Product since it seemed to have a better bundle. I was not aware that there
    were any differences in the cards, as Future Technologies International,
    Inc. (FTI) web site (as do most other resellers) still to this day state the
    fact that the Power Color R96A-C3T has "OVERDRIVE", as does C.P.Technology
    Co., Ltd. Main web site, only in the last week has the Power Color USA Corp.
    web site quietly removed the statement about the Power Color R96A-C3T having
    'OVERDRIVE" ability.
