Firing Squad looks into FarCry and the NV lines

If you've been following the FarCry saga, we've had IQ issues, *NEW* PS3.0 support (first in gaming to have a game before the card! Oh my!), then potential application detection in drivers, then DeviceID detection built into the game. Just a little bit more to pour gas, err.... water artifacts onto the fire.

<A HREF="http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/far_cry_nvidia/" target="_new">http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/far_cry_nvidia/</A>

Interesting to learn that PS2.0 is ONLY used for lighting, everything else uses 1.1. So what's all this about PS3.0?

NV6800 no match for new X800's

Can you post some links substantiating your claims?

Sure.

X = variable.

Therefore, when X > than 7 then the 6800 is no match for the X800. :tongue:

As of yet you have only declared X to be a variable. It is thus uninitialized and I set it to constant X = -6! What now!!

Ok, and then I set the variable values of N = to -7 and V= to +5 thereby once again NV6800<X800 ! :evil:

Ahh I don't need your support, I'll pay a few "strangers" to swarm you, that way I save money, cause I'm keeping my money for beer for the hockey game.

However, since they are not consts, I can reassign them.
Const N = 7;
Const V = 5;
What now?! ha!

Or you could keep it simple: 10800>6800....and XT is a sh!tload cooler than Ultra.

Maxtor disgraces the six letters that make Matrox.

Nah, cause which sounds better. Sixty-eight hundred or ten eight hundred. Sixty flows much better.

Well from GW's videos, I'd say the X800 will likely sound better. :tongue:

Also "Over Ten Gs" sounds much nicer than "almost 7 Gs" :cool:

Especially since one is 'supposed' to be a G-force to be reckoned with. :eek:

By that argument, a radeon is more uncomfortable since 10 G's are painful, almost seven are less so :tongue:
