Wow even Halo?

Heheh, good link GW, just more and more proof. VERY nice comparison with the PS version test.

You'd think the PS 1.4 would help as it IS an excellent version, but alas.

heh. i like they they say things.
If something sucks then it sucks.

Interesting that they are comparing a FX5900ultra 256 to only the R9800pro 128... and the 128 still spanks.

Nvidia needs to do some hard thinking and planning on the next core design.

Hehe, they recommended nVidia drop prices? Hell no!

nVidia bases their prices on whatever the market will bear. The only way they can charge $400 for an inferior card is if people buy that card regardless. And people must be buying the card in droves, or nVidia would be forced to lower the price!

Why are people paying so much for inferior technology? Popularity. The same reason people bought the SB Live when the Vortex2 was better. The same reason people bought the VooDoo3 when the TNT2 was better. The same reason when one dodo ran off a cliff, all the other dodos followed, it seemed to be the thing to do at the time, everyone's doing it!

don’t know how anyone could objectively look at the performance we’ve seen in these benchmarks and conclude that a 5900 Ultra is a smarter buying decision than a 9800 Pro – even the 128MB 9800 Pro (as used in the tests here) trumps the lofty 256MB 5900 Ultra. If you’re still “stuck in the past” and think that ATI is plagued with driver issues, than go ahead and keep your head stuck in the sand like an ostrich, buy a 5900 Ultra and then start crying when your pals are smoking your ass in games like Half Life 2 and Halo because they’re running ATI hardware.


now, how long have i been saying this...

Yeah they (gamersdepot) started the HALO review for their Mobile DX9 comparison. Where the mobile R9600 excelled again (Mmmm tempting! Please IBM [or Dell as 2nd choice] make a gaming rig so I can buy it through work).

I'm still confused why they use the green bar chart fo ATI, first time I glanced at the mobile scores I thought, WOW the FX-GO is clobbering the ATI, surprising! Schtoopid graphics guys!

Anywhoo interesting article and yeah like DaveP and PHial say, alo of what we've all been saying for a while.

I can name at least 5 threads that this conversation could be easily adapted to in the "Other" section. I hope Genetic_weapon & phial post live film footage & spy web cams...................

"Yes. NV30 class hardware can run the ARB2 path that uses ARB_fragment_program, but it is very slow, which is why I have a separate NV30 back end that uses NV_fragment_program to specify most of the operations as 12 or 16 bit instead of 32 bit."

John Carmack


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
ROFL
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

I'm feeling sorry (not really, but that doesn't matter) for fx 5900 owners. 12 or 16 bit...and to think that my 9600 PRO CAN run 32 bit.

No matter where you go, there you are.

I know, that really is sad though. People are shelling out $400 or more for a 5900 Ultra thinking its the fastest card on the market. Anybody who has a cheapo 9600 non-pro can safely say they have a card faster than a 5900 Ultra in many respects. Sure a 9600 can't hold a candle to a 5900 Ultra in DX8 games like UT2k3, but just wait until you pop that HL2 disc in. Nvidia is about to lose easily 10% of the Graphics cards Market share in about less than a year once these new Hl2 and other games pop around the corner.

I'm never going to get tired of posting this. Oh BTW Sargeduck, thanks for posting those Tombraider benchmarks. Your Tombraider thread was truly the turning point in the Graphics card forum as of lately. Hardware reccomendations have never been the same since your valuable post.

I had a conversation with this cat in gamestop.com store in the mall and he told me i was afanboi and an idiot becuz of this, maybe i am a fanboi of good quality products and maybe i am an idiot for not buying a $400 5900 and settling for my $200 9600p which i get a measly 4650 in 3dmark03 with...
