Notice CATALYST MAKER giving hints to a "revolutionary driver" in reference to the next driver revision (3.8)

Consider that NVidia seems to be working on the Det 50s... (and supposed performance increases and shader "performance improvements")

Anyone see a trend here?

Wooh for PR. :D

(I think they've had more than enough notice of Det50's existence to plan for this though.. but then again, I think all products have some sort of Huge Nifty Driver Thing planned at least once in their lifetimes so it can be released when the competitor releases something special)

bleh, I remember them saying the same thing about the 3.3's.......

I thought they learned something from that lesson, and the R9700 release....it's best let the item do the talking for you.....and pound your chest *after* it's release.....


Of couse, I'm a cynical S.O.B....

As far as nVidia hyping anything, give me break:rolleyes:

I don't see any correlation. Catalyst Maker has even gone on record by debunking claims that Cat3.8 would have massive performance increases. He has said they will have innovative features, and I believe him based on what I think will be coming.

Contrast this with Det50, which has not been hyped by NVIDIA at all. Considering that NVIDIA's company policy is to not discuss anything that is unreleased, this is unsurprising. We really don't know what Det50 will or will not bring, other than some interesting speculation, all related to performance.

Kinda looks like Stealth's statement might pretty well be on the money! :D

Are you ready? Or did you die waiting? ;)

I suspect nothing less from NVidia and ATI in the weeks to come... All of you are probably waiting for those Det 50 vs CATALYST 3.8 benchmark rounds...

Det XP - 2 years ago (approximately)
Det FX - last year
Det 50 - soon

Actually, I'm NOT ready anymore. The only nVidia card I got left in the house is my son's GF2 and I don't run anything but the 30.82 set on that. ;)

Mebbe I should e-mail nVidia and see if they want to send me a card to play with....or do you think they'd try and get me fired again? ;)

if you're implying that it's all vapourware and marketing hype, then you'd better talk with my friend who just spend the entire weekend putting in overtime working on the next release. Gosh, imagine how stupid he'll feel when you tell him he's been working on nothing this whole time. ;)

I don't know about performance, but I've seen the features they're planning and they're really cool.
