FS quit ripping nvidia man they try hard u have to give them credit for trying i have a fx5800 ultra yeh its loud but it f**kin rocks my other compouter has a 9700 pro and its just as good no reason for dissing them just because u dont like there products

NVIDIA Expands Its Product Range

you people rip on nvidia without looking at all the facts, look at ati do they make mobos, or really anything but video cards, the answer is no, and if they did their vid card quality would go down as well, nvidia just spread too quick for their own good, but there mobos do kick some serious ass, id like to see hl2 on an nf2 board with amd proc and the 5900 ultra then the 9800 pro youd see that they would be quite even, intel just has more optimazations for ati than nvidia, and ati has paid for thembut really all we can do is wait and seeim personally looking out for the 5700ultra 500 gpu 1000 mem, gonna be great doom3 + halo pc here i come

Yeah, i'm still faithful to the old king. the geforce 4 ti's rocked my world. mates got a 9700 pro ultra and seriously, you dont need it... and good on nvidia for changing path, thank god we wont see them go down without a fight. i would love to see them bring on a geforce 5 that blows ati away, but hey, i'm dreaming...remeber, dont whore yourself out to ati if there is no logical reason to throw away your trusty geforce 2, 3 or 4... who honestly cares if your 3d mark score is better than the next guy, just remember that the next guy has payed an arm and a leg to get there...

What some of you do not understand that it's not drivers for the 5900, 5600, 5200 cards that make their cards perform poorly in dx9 and shader intense games. It's hardware. No matter how much PR spin Nvidia tries and musters. The whole gaming community has caught on to this. Same as the hardware community. This is why those Det 51.75 drivers have been delayed. Those "best ever" drivers Nvidia has made to increase dx9 performance? Hmmmm. Look at the early results from those drivers. Quite dissappointing.Nvidia has already even dismissed the 5900,5600 series for their latest update. Saying this will provide better dx9 performance. I doubt that if its still using the same exact core...."It is likely you are already familiar with our Day 1 coverage and know about how NVIDIA has been reassuring video card partners that newer and better graphic drivers will fix performance issues for DX9 games. Just to reiterate, manufacturers are skeptical that NVIDIA will be able to accomplish this..."[url removed] like to see hl2 on an nf2 board with amd proc and the 5900 ultra then the 9800 pro youd see that they would be quite even..."They have ran those tests. And the results are quite the same. The mobo chipset has very little if anything to do with GPU performance in pixel and vertex shaders. I assume you know this? ;) Mobo's do not render pixel, vertex shaders nor does the CPU. It's a GPU calculation entirely. If they programmed the CPU do those calculations, performance in those games and applications would run like syrup. So wether it's running on Nforce2(3) board or IntelP4 Canterwood chipset makes little difference. The GPU takes the vast majority of the mathematical calculations to perform those pixel, vertex shader functions. As for Halo running well on the Upcoming 5700Ultra. If that chip has the same shader engine core and register calculationsas as the 5200, 5600, and 5900(which by all accounts it does from earl

Continued....from early reports) DX9 performance will basically be the same.Moreover the Canterwood chipset with the 800mhz FSB 3.2gig chip runs faster then AMD's Nforce2 board with the 3200+ running with either card in it's box. The reason almost all sites review these high-end cards with the INTEL board. Not including the Hammer chipset or the P4EE as they have just released benchmarks for them(P4EE is not even out yet. And from what has been said, might not even hit retail shelves. True paper launch.....)" just remember that the next guy has payed an arm and a leg to get there... "Hey. I just picked up a 9500pro for my girlfriend and finished modding it to a 9700pro for her. All for $139.99US. That's even cheaper then the 4600ti right now. And faster also. AND runs DX9 games soild.And people are not ripping Nvidia for their mobo chipsets. The Nforce boards are amazing. One of the best boards you can buy for the money and otherwise. Especially from Asus. People are ripping them for their FX line of cards and drivers. And the continuing lies and shaddy stories they keep telling.....

NVIDIA Expands Its Product Range

Not that much of a difference. Mobos are NOT optimized for vertex and pixel shader performance. And the differences we are seeing between the 9800pro and the 5900Ultra in shader performance will not change due to chipsets. Take a look at reviews when they both run on a Nforce2 chipset. Shader performance in games and applications goes to the 9800pro. Everytime. Same with the Intel chipset. If it would you would figure every single website would run a test with a 5900Ultra and a Nforce2 board compared to a 9800pro running on a Canterwood chipset to compare results. They don't. Because the difference is minimal if anything.Do you really think if changing chipsets would make a difference as your saying(making both cards run the same in dx9 games)that websites would not try this??? I have seen tests run on NFORCE2 boards for both cards. Same results. Seen both cards run on Intel boards. Same result. This is a straight up hardware issue.

"Asus takes the ATI routeComputex 2003 Afore we go, haim to LondonBy INQUIRER staff: Friday 26 September 2003, 13:25WE CONFIRMED on the Computex floor today that Asus is to start branding ATI graphics cards, we think it's from the end of October.Thanks to the many readers who noticed the details on the Asus web site before someone noticed everyone was noticing, and pulled the pages.It's known to every other motherboard maker which dabbles in graphics cards too, such as Chaintech. An unnamed person at this company told us earlier today that it was considering ATI but not just quite yet. The reason for changing is that the old days of rock solid partners for Nvidia or for ATI for that matter, is changing."WOW. And Asus was always Nvidia exclusive.......

Actually you should. It's one of the more relaible sources on the web. And this info is also at Anandtech.com, Techreport.com, Beyond3d.com. So what is there not to trust? Are you saying that this info and benchmarks and pictures are all fake? Running on the lines of Nvidia's PR department and their failed claims to show that FX cards run dx9 games better then ATI cards. The only UNRELIEABLE SOURCES these days is Nvidia themselves. So many lies. So much bullshit."WE'VE HAD A CHANCE TO look at one of the first ATI based boards for the Pentium 4 – an area where it doesn't need to consider Nvidia, because that firm is concentrating on AMD Athlon and Hammer chips, and won't pay Chipzilla the doubloons it needs for a licence.ATI continues to work closely with Intel on many different fronts and this chipset is the first of many future products we expect to see..."That's proof for me

i bet u f**king amd fans has big f**king eayes right now. you probably think im with intel, But im not! this is crap, you are f**king stupid if u buy the newest f**king chip, just to be the best of all computer nerds, i bet some of u uses a f**king 30000 usd server ,fully overclocked and with freon cooling, and dosnt play more than cabal. i hate shit
