Pop up killer huh? Hmmm... maybe some long distance starter for your computer... let's see what else... some coupons for free bread at the market... c**k sucking performance... choppy framerates... nVidiots=not happy... nVidia=not happy... me=happy... why?... because me=ATI... ATI=Good performance no lies and no BS... pop up killer? nVidia sound desperate to me.

Forceware 56.72

jesus what wrong with you fanboys and fangirls, roth ati and nvidia are great btw nvidia 5900xt beats 9600xt in most cases and the price is the same. read reviews. after all the price is the thing that maters at the end not who is the king of the hill with flagship cards.

Forceware 56.72

Hey DOUBLE A STFU you sound like a freaking cave man talking about is video card?!?!?!Im owning a ATIshame on you for making us look like fool with those kinda postDouble A?? = Double Asshole??

Forceware 56.72

It's sad how ATI fanboys have to rip on what is dedicated driver support by Nvidia. I mean for f**ks sake, ATI's drivers always seem to give someone a major pain in the ass, while Nvidia's driver get the job done almost every time.OMG! I forgot, Nvidia must be cheating with their drivers.... Get over it you f**king babies. Every driver uses optimizations to improve performance. I doubt most of you know wtf was done or lost, you just love bashing Nvidia back when the witch hunt was on.Keep your stupid comments to yourself!BTW, Nvidia WILL take back the crown in a couple weeks, enjoy your last precious moments ATI....

Forceware 56.72

guy who just did the last comment:ATI drivers are perfect you dont know what you talking about... those are not RADEON 32meg drivers anymore dumbassand do you know what actually was done to improve score you all mighty nobrain sucker... they reduced image quality (like pixel shading) to get better performance when Futuremark was running it benchmarkEveryone know FX cards suck on DX9 games... and how can you say that Nvidia will get the crown back... have you f**king see their new card vs a new ATI card... no well Shut Upif they take the crown back its only cause their card will be out firstLOL

Forceware 56.72

You want a retort, fine. The new ATI drivers still suck balls. I look at an ATI forum and see a load of problems. Nvidia has problems too, but ATI always seems to have the more serious ones. I also am aware of what the optimizations did. I don't really care if they robbed me of a some image quality in the name of performance, because most people won't notice it anyways. BTW, Futuremark benchmarks (synthetic) don't mean shit to me. FX cards may pull off DX9 poorly in the low level cards, but a few FPS is not the end of the world. LOL, you ATI ppl are in denial about the next gen of cards. Sure it's technically all rumors at the moment, but they have already made the cards. Nvidia had their card at Ce-bit, but ATI didn't say shit about their stuff. Sure they could be a little behind in production, but maybe they know they're d**ked....BTW, the name calling really isn't necessary, could we once have a civilized flame war? :)

Forceware 56.72

I have a radeon 9700 pro with 4.3 drivers. My buddy has nvidia 5900 fx with forceware 56.72. We both have the same processors at the same speed and the same amount of ram at the same spped. My 3D mark score was 5112 his was 4680 lol

Forceware 56.72

the guy below me just stfu you dont know shit about the new cards till they come out so quit trying to play the f**king genious also you nvidia fan boys like the one down below me always try to say ati driveres suck lol thats the only thing you can say which is not true anyway

Forceware 56.72

Raid, if you were sincere, thanks. Some people have no problems with ATI drivers, and that's great. But unfortunately I see a lot of examples that disagree. A number of the game patches I install will mention fixes specific to ATI cards, while seldom mention Nvidia ones.As a side note, I will be using a 9700 pro in a pc im building currently, we'll just see how well she does.Now as for you mr. anonymous, that really is the only problem with ATI cards. It isn't true now eh? Well Nvidia's cheating is true now either. Why don't we all agree that the past is in the past and judge what is now.

Forceware 56.72

I seriously think raid stays on this web site all day long waiting for people to post comments so he can then answer back with unbelievable stupidity and lack of maturity. The world has a balance, there are the smart and the dumb and raid, you fall in the later category.

Forceware 56.72

hehe Andy whatever... i post here during the day at work to free up some stress and you know what... yeah it work... happy that you carebut tell me, leave the swearing i do aside, what is dumb in my posting??I speak about things i dont know? Wrong i did test all thoses cards.I have a lack of maturity?True... on those board im not 25 anymore im 12 :P (I like putting oil on fire on those boardS)and im sure you all like to read my shit... that why you answering right?and yeah anonymous... i was sincere... ill try to stay more polite (hard thing to do on those forum) but ill try (i love ATI vs NVIDIA wars)

Forceware 56.72

You know what Double A now stands for? yeah raid... it's Andy Anderson, I guess we can be both mature enough when we want to. Anyways I'm glad you seem more polite with my real name than my accolyte. So hope to hear from you again.

Forceware 56.72

And yeah raid, I guess we all are here for the same reason, relieve ourselves on people we don't know. Because sincerely it doesn't really matter about what card is the best since all this "war" stuff between nVidia and ATI is just going to lower the prices down. So in the end we get more bangs for our bucks.

Forceware 56.72

why ati is realising its card latter than nvidia, couse they want to see its posibilities to, set higuer clock frecuencies in their cards?????and then beat nvidia????,

Forceware 56.72

"All that matters is the price". That's correct. As long as you can run games with a framerate above 30 you're fine. And how we can talk about maturity if none of you can even spell certain words or use grammar. C'mon, I'm 13 and I can see how lame you're all being. They're video cards......If one works good for you.....use it....if the other works better fine.

Forceware 56.72

"Overclockability was one of the things that surprised me the most about the Sapphire Radeon 9800XT Ultimate Edition. We were able to overclock the core 25Mhz and memory 35Mhz, overclocking the memory 25Mhz more than the ATI reference sample we tested against. The New Catalyst 4.3 driver suite is as good as ever, with no game or driver problems throughout testing."[url removed] crap about ATI drivers being poor just proves that Nvidiots have nothing to say these days. Especially when every review website that tests ATI cards and the latest games have no issues when they are bench marking them. I have a 9700pro and very few issues with it. Nvidia has their fair share of driver issues. UT 2004 for one.....no one creates perfect drivers. Nvidia has just pulled P.R. moves for you blind fanboys which you will believe ANYTHING. Like the 32x0 pipeline for DOOM3.....RIGHTTTTTTTTTTTT

Forceware 56.72

Why the hell did they only make new drivers for win xp. Not everyone wants to install Bill Gates latest security risk on their system. Where are the new Win ME drivers. The 56.64 drivers suck.

Forceware 56.72

Well im back for my 3rd post, maybe I should use a name... Well first, Raid, you are right in that a lot of ppl blow off steam in these forums with insensitive comments, hell I was really mad after the first exchange for a bit.I would also like to say I haven't heard of one issue with Unreal 2004 and Nvida, and I run a variety of boards and drivers.As to the latest comments, Nvidia didn't put out WIN9X drivers cause windows 98 is no longer supported by the majority of companies. My friend wanted me to put Win98 on his new PC, I laughed in his face cause very few new games will ever support it.

Forceware 56.72

The UT2K4 problem was with an older driver set - major performance hit for FX owners - seems like the problem's fixed now though. I get about double the framerate now than with the older drivers, and IQ looks the same when I play it.Damn I miss 3DFX... :'(

Forceware 56.72

i belive in chaos. it's like a machine that you put some shit through one side and get some uncomperhensable sit on the other side as the output. not a lot of thinking is requierd and it's easy to contribute to the general chaos. god know what will happen next thaks to the priviously anonymous ATI. you should all thak ati not because of the radeaon 9800xt. try imagine what would have happend if they didn't got it out... no nv45-40 or whatever...

Forceware 56.72

to .64 to .72 features only performance/bug fixes, no new features, they've mearly decided to better advertise them. Popup blockers on a driver level tend to be very efficient so i guess that's that bit's up point. Both nVidia and ATI suck when it comes to customer honesty, ATI have mearly been less obvious this time round. Also the benchmark thing. They're entirely pointless, it's simply a case of how well the card plays the games you like to play.

Forceware 56.72

Umm im not gonna get into another flame war , all im gonna say is , as long as these drivers are improving nvidia owners cards than thats good.why would Nvidia release a driver that makes things worse? think before you speak they run a business not a joke.Maybe your computers are f**ked up? try a format.for the ATI guys NVIDIOTS MUAHAH!!! lee7 HAXIORS! OMG!well ya ati is kicking ass now hopefully the 9800 pro 256 mb goes down to 200$ when the new cards get released because the XT isnt a lot better and i hear that cards pretty fackin sweet to run Hl 2 on.basically. these are new drivers they must have some qualities if not some bugs as well. new software = fixed problems , software = new problems :)anyways i just had to say that.

Anonymousat 3:5 4/4/2004"nvidia drivers has always live up to its reputation."u = ignorantAnonymousat 8:44 4/4/2004because ur posts were worthless, much like urself.

Forceware 56.72

anyone who says that fx series suck at dx9 games, they are not really right, for egzample halo runs 2 times faster on 5900xt than on 9600xt and the price is the same ;). im not a fanboy this is a fact i have tested both cards on my pc and lots of benchmarks tell so. the other thing is if you are talking about fsaa, nvidia doesn't like this feature, still there is 2x-q aa option on invidia cards wich runs almost the same quality as 4x aa. so beats ati on the mid range market in most cases.of course other dx9 games do not perform so well on invida cards compared to ati's.still 5900xt beats or is equall almost in all test including X2, Spellforce, FarCry, vietcong, homeworld2, igi2.talking about overclockin 5900xt overclocks much more than 9600xt in most cases (there are lots of card manufacturesr wich produce ati and nvidia cards so it would be imposible to compare them all)to conclude i think that only rich people can aford 9800xt so the best option is to look at the mid range market wich ofers 9600xt, 9800SE and 5900xt. 9800SE is peace of sh@$#$# (still some peaople manage to overclock it to 9800xt level, see google ;)) this of cource is dependant to manufacturer. 9600xt is a good card, still it has bugs with some games homeworld2 with aa + shadows for eg. 5900xt is better in most cases than 9600xt still it runs like sh#@$@ with half life 2 beta.

Forceware 56.72

I own a P4 3.0Ghz desktop Pc and after the install of these new drivers my system has become a lot slower... anybody has any information on how to fix this problem?

Forceware 56.72

"nvidia drivers has always live up to its reputation. unlike ati drivers which sucks everytime they release a new one."So Nvidia lives up to it's reputation? Hmmm. So they live up to their cheating reputation? Drivers that lower IQ to increase speeds in games. That has to be the worst statement anyone has ever said on this website..."nvidia drivers has always live up to its reputation...." With all the benchmark cheating from Nvidia, some reputation...
