WOW! 6800U DESTROYS the 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.

    There wasn't really much surprise about that. ATI needs to get new OpenGL
    drivers out. If they were smart, they would have it almost done by now.
    I think it's unwise to base video card purchasing decisions on a single
    game, but I think overall that both ATI and nVidia have competitive
    products in the X800 series and 6800 series, respectively.

    Depends how many future games adopt OpenGL.

    ATI has known for some time that they do OGL poorly and that Doom3 would
    expose this weakness and hurt sales. Therefore it is obvious that they
    don't know how to fix the problem. Anyone who thinks that Doom3 will
    suddenly overnight run competitively on ATI hardware is EXTREMELY naive.

    I look forward to seeing if ATI does anything with OpenGL on the upcoming
    4.8 driver update next month. I don't think we will see anything, but you
    never know...stranger things have happened at sea. :) At least things
    are pretty close performance-wise on the "older" 9800XT and GeForceFX

    How does it feel to own a monster card when the Ethiopians are starving in Africa?

    There's nothing we can do about it. Any time the USA sends aid to these
    places, their corrupted leaders just hoard it all and let their people
    suffer more.

    Ok guys....
    Direct3D API - This will normally tax your CPU [Software base]
    OpenGL API - This will tax your GPU [Hardware base].
    Which one you prefer?

    No, but this newsgroup is borderlining on the edge of starvation for a woman.

    I bet they got some nice supplies from nVidia for the winter. Those
    MX cards will become very handy for the battles against the hungry
    hyenas and antelopes.

    Great! Especially since they are unavailable worldwide, and I've got
    one. :)

    Glad you added the "respectively".... for those of us who might have thought
    the X800 was an nVidia part and the 6800 from ATI. Doh ;-)

    Neither, since this argument is complete pants, sorry.

    Ethiopians will starve if I have a video card or not, in fact they will
    starve if I have a computer or not, attempting to make someone feel guilty
    for purchasing a video card by speaking about another nations problems due
    to corrupt goverments and/or lack of proper land management is kinda stupid

    Nuke 'em all, let God sort 'em out.

    If you're going to pull out tired old rhetoric such as you're using then
    that's all the response you have any right to expect. Where do you _you_
    live? I need to write Bush and make sure he adds it to the list.
