Me? I just find it funny that NVidia mopped the floor with ATI in Doom 3 benchmarks, yet they package Doom 3 with it...explain how this makes me an ignorant noob please.

game bundles are great for both companies, as well as retailors. it does get frustrating ati is pushing back its release for its "new opengl code" / compiler. when its finished i do hope their is a significant increase for the consumers.

:/ I didnt really think the Nvidia cards beat the ATi that badly, but I am upgrading to an Nvidia just because of this game. Im just hoping HL2 will run ok on it.

dunno about "mopped the floor" but yes Nvidia was quite ahead of ATi in Doom 3 benches.

But you said "half decent performance" which is a false statement as the performance on a X800 averaged well above 55fps.

half decent ? No. Less than Nvidia ? Yes

Just because Nvidia moped ATI in the benchmarks with Doom 3, that doesn't make ATI's card not good enought to run Doom 3. It's just not the best choice of graphics card to run doom 3 with.

And here I thought HL II was sposed to be bundled with ATI cards...wtf is nvidia going to do :s

now that they have a card that outperforms the ATIs again they don't need an awesome game to bundle i guess

ohh man..dont make this a freakin fanboi thread man! cant we all just get along?

besides...we only saw ONE sites tests on doom 3..for all i know..it could be one of those nvidia "OPTIMIZES" in either case...i still think ATI cards are a better choice..but thats just me.

but plz dont go all off topic.

thanX

it lacks traditional insignia (weired creatures/hot chicks) so I begin to think it's a composit scetch, since google image search revealed that every box has either creature/hot chick(Ruby is it? the one in the demo)/object (i.e. Gigabyte's piramid) that one doesn't have anything.

plus look at the heatsink/fan weired, small, and stripped down, x600 or x300? but that makes not friggin sense!

^ the benches were dependable. Moreover ATi always lacked in OpenGL games so it was no surprise. I dont expect the performance to increase.

zaz you are SOOO SMART

and it's an incentive to buy the ATi card for the guy above. ATi will fix the problem, and you'll have the game. Problem? I don't see one. It's a pretty smart move if you ask me. So far they've bundled a HL2 voucher and now Doom 3. They're pretty consumer friendly, but you're bashing them. How ironic.

I do. I recall reading an ATI employee stating that the OpenGL drivers weren't as good as the DirectX driver because they spend more time on the DirectX driver and if they spent that time on the OpenGL driver, the speed would go up. :D
