FX 5900 Bundled with Call of Duty

From what i've seen if you wan a Good Budget Card $115 to $210 you might wanna go for the Ati Radeion 9600's series or a 9500 PRO.As they clearly smoke away the nVdia's 5600 ultra's and some other.In fact at some benchmarks it even Matchs up against some of new nVidia cards (5900& others).Then nVidia releases the 5700 ultra that is suppose to BEAT the 9600's & XT and it turned out to be a another loser.The 9600 XT still manages to have a slight lead on the 5700 ultra and with pixel & shader it has a good lead. So yea im very dissapointed with nVidia.I used to love the Geforce 2 it was good shit for awhile,Ti was quite impressive for a bit. But now its all a mess with the FX cards.My most recommended budget cards are the 1)Ati Radeon 9600 XT With HALF-LIFE 2 2)Ati Radeon 9600 PRO or 3)Ati Radeon 9500 PRO.Here are some of the best benchamarks website and shit 1)[url removed] (TRUST THIS GUY)

Hey experts! I need help! I was thinking of getting a Geforcefx 5600 for about AUS$250, (about the equivalent to US$175) that supports Dx9 pixel shader 2.0+, or something, i dunno youre the experts right? Anyways, i started to lean toward ATI, particularly the 9600pro, for about AUS$300 (around US $210). Could somebody please tell me which card i should get, and why. And i dont want any biased opinions. Thx

Cody what cheap crack cocaine have you been smoking? Best video card? It's a cut down version of a 5900. Which may i add, still does not play dx9 games properly. And the problem this card is going to cause the 5700Ultra is quite funny. The 5900XT is faster then the 5700 and the same price! Smooth move Nvidia. LMAO. And so far this 5900XT is pure paper launch.

look at any memory intesive game, NWN anyone a $150 vid card wipes the floor with atis flagship the 9800xt, anything that is shader intesive is memory bandwidth intesive, maybe they didnt have the fast write combining turned on in there hardware but , memory bandwidth is the key to getting faster performance and as soon as ati realizes that they will totally pwn nvidia but they are still stuck on gpu clock speeds and not the memory bandwidth/speeds, so untill that day i will continue with nvidia, and about the people saying that the Cg codepath is crap, it may take extra time to code for it but in the long run it provides better performance and image quality, and isnt that what us as gamers go for, and who says that the games now being produced are being optimized for the ati codepath, figurativly speaking who in there right mind is gonna spend $2500 on a system just to play games at 150 fps, seriously you people need to get a woman and spend money on her if you can say yes to that question because im damn well sure you are not gettin any

For all the bitchez that say ATI's 9600 XT is better Check this out. [url removed] there and get the real scoop. The fact is the 5900XT smokes the 9600 due to the pipeline increase averaging 50% faster in every test FOR THE SAME PRICE!!!! And wouldn't u rather get a actual game than a coupon on a game that you dont know if it will ever even come out?!

FX 5900 Bundled with Call of Duty

Static, and you want to gamble on the fact that the 9800XT won't play future DX9 games? Have fun. Nvidia still has to go to incredible lenghts just to have their FX cards run those games at acceptable levels. And if game developers do not want to put in that time(some won't as seen) piss poor performance. Now the 5900XT is a paper launch card. The 9700pro beats it straight up because that card is a true 8x1 pipeline card. Not the 4x2 and sometimes 8x1 card the 5900XT is. And the 9700pro cost the same.Would Nvidia bundle that card with a newer game engine? Not a chance. MaxPayne2? No way. Halo? Nope. TRAOD? Noooo. Because Nvidia cards have a bitch of a time with PS2.0 pixel and vertex shaders in REAL WORLD GAMES.

FX 5900 Bundled with Call of Duty

The 5900XT is just a cut down version of the 5900. A 5900non-ultra reduce to mid-range prices.Which is a good thing!But i find it funny how it takes Nvidia to release a paper launch product that you will not see until after christmas. Not to mention the fact that this is not a mid-range card but a higher end one. It seems Nvidia needs a higher end card to compete with ATI's mid-range card.Nvidia is taking a big hit on this card in price. And screws the 5700Ultra in the process which sells for the same price and is slower. Who the hell will buy the 5700 now? And the 9700pro is still the better choice for Mid-range cards. It runs faster then all of these ones.

FX 5900 Bundled with Call of Duty

Nvidia is desperate here. ATI could do the same thing. Just reduce the price of the 9800 non-pro to $200 and bundle it with MaxPayne2 and call it a 9800FX. DESRERATE MARKETING. Good for all consumers as this will push prices down, but very desperate for Nvidia this holiday season. Which this card won't even hit retail shelves like Anonymous said below until the new year. By then, Call of Duty will be around $19.99-$29.99. A LITTLE TOO LATE......

ok.. call of duty is an opengl engine not a dx.. so thats why it runs faster on nvidia.. go check the benchmarks nvidia is better on opengl but still not good enought as ATI vs Nvidia on DX9.ATI is still the best card you can get.. I just ordered a 9800XT

FX 5900 Bundled with Call of Duty

And is dx9 games not the future? Call of Duty uses a antiquated game engine. Who cares if nvidia cards run quake3 engine games 15 fps faster when both ati and nvidia cards run them at a minimum at full detail of 110fps? I want my next generation card to run next generation games. Nvidia cards are having a f**k of a time doing that.

x2 is totally optimized for FX hardware and uses minimal PS2.0 and Vertex shader 2.0 SUPPORT!(DX9 SHADER FEATUREES)It also is optimised for Nvidia cards so they can run it in FP12 and FP16. That's not the minimal dx9 requirement! FP24 is! So how can they even classify it as a dx9 game when Nvidia cards are not running it in the specified requirements??????? ATI does all the time. FP24!Soon as a game uses the specified dx9 application such as the minimal floating point of 24bit or higher, Nvidia cards run super slow. It's only when they use shader effects from DX7 and DX8.1 instead of PS2.0(DX9 SHADER EFFECT) does the fx cards perform well.(HL2 fiasco) This is why games like TRAOD and HL2 and even the DX8.1 game MaxPayne2(which exclusively uses 32bit colour) perform crappy on FX cards.x2 is a game that uses partial precision and partial shader effects from dx7 and dx8 generations on FX cards. That's not a true DX9 game buddy. And Nvidia is going to get f**ked when games start to come out using PS2.0 and vertex shader 2.0 exclusively like HL2. Just read carmacks statement about that.[url removed] that link too.........nuff said....

What people need to know about shader performance and fx cards is this. When games use PS2.0, Vertex shader2.0 and HDL effects in full precision nvidia cards cannot run those properly UNLESS their drivers change shader operations. Which in general do not effect IQ. However with pure DX9 games that require extensive use of those effects in minimum floating point precision, like HL2 and even maxPayne2, Nvidia's complier drivers cannot alter those shader operations without effecting IQ.X2 does not use those effects exclusively, so Nvidia's drviers can run in lower floating point precision then whats required for DX9 and use partial shader effects from years past dx7 and dx8.1 effects without image loss. ATI cards however, run X2 at Floating point Precision of 24bit and use ps2.0 shader effects across the board. The required specifications of DX9 applications.Nvidia drivers SHOULD run all dx9 games at Floating point fp32...they dont

"Update: NVIDIA drivers still do not allow for full tri-linear filtering. As a result, an asterisk noting this fact should be kept in mind regarding the benchmark results. There's really no way of knowing what effect this has on the resulting frames per second since full tri-linear filtering cannot be accomplished in Unreal Tournament 2003 with NVIDIA drivers and therefore no comparison can be drawn. Most "best guesses" that I'm aware of estimate this to be anywhere from a few frames per second to ten or more depending on the map, system, etc."-nVNews-And this is from a major, major pro Nvidia site. Love that IQ on Nvidia cards. Love how they cut down IQ just to get a few frames faster. REAL generation cards these FX cards are. What a joke.....

I want to know where that loser guy SSCREW is these days not defending his beloved Nvidia FX cards? When Nvidia was caught cheating big time f**king up IQ and other shit, SSCREW was there defending Nvidia to the death. Where did this asshole go? Seems there is not much to defend now that everyone knows that these fx cards are shit and the truth is out about it. SSCREW would always say..."i will wait for the nv30...or i will wait for the nv35...then i will wiat for the nv38...they will destroy the ati cards..."Please SSCREW, come back so we can laugh at you and your blind loyality....lmfao.

...continued..."The FX5700 Ultra's texturing quality is a bit worse compared to the Radeon 9600XT: the textures a bit more flat and not as defined. Anti-aliasing quality is pretty good, though a little rough when compared to the Radeon 9600XT in instances. Overall, image quality is good, but not as good as the image you would get from the Radeon 9600XT.In terms of value, the FX5700 Ultra may leave you wanting more. Because the DirectX performance is pretty poor compared to the similarly priced Radeon 9600XT, you will find yourself wanting to upgrade sooner than someone with the Radeon. However, this isn't a big concern if you're not planning on keeping the FX5700 Ultra for long or if you only play OpenGL games..."FX cards are AMAZING FOR OpenGL games and last year titles. Have fun playing future DX9 titles....

They have already proved that running games and Synthetic tests that use heavy shader effects and HDL cripple FX performance. It's been proven across the board. This is why they tell you that the FX cards are amazing for dx7, dx8 gaming, however once games start to use more and more dx9 shader and high dynamic lighting effects(HL2 is a prime example over all other dx9 games right now. And expect to see those games in the new year) Nvidia will no longer be able to use it's complier program to alter shader code without effecting IQ. All one has to do is look at the results of HL2 and what it took Nvidia and Valve to get the game even to run at acceptable levels. It took Valve and Nvidia 5 times as long to code for the FX card as it did on Ati cards. Nvidia themselves even mentioned the length inwhich it takes to code for it's card. And the results were still poor.DX9 shaders for the FX cards had to be replaced with DX8 and DX7 shaders instead. And dx8 and dx7 shaders do not look the same as dx9 shader effects and especially dx9 lighting effects. This is what FX owners will be getting with future dx9 titles. Running the game in dx7, dx8 MODE and partial floating point precision. HL2 is just the perfect example. It's a warning. A warning even John Carmack mentions:"Hi John,No doubt you heard about GeForce FX fiasco in Half-Life 2. In your opinion, are these results representative for future DX9 games (including Doom III) or is it just a special case of HL2 code preferring ATI features, as NVIDIA suggests?""Unfortunately, it will probably be representative of most DX9 games. Doom has a custom back end that uses the lower precisions on the GF-FX, but when you run it with standard fragment programs just like ATI, it is a lot slower. The precision doesn't really matter to Doom, but that won't be a reasonable option in future games designed around DX9 level hardware as a minimum spec."-John Carmack-[url removed] a FX card but be
