Remember ATI's press release when NV3x got spanked in HL2 benchmarks a year ago? ( still no game lol! )

I'll delete my thread if you post that :)

NVIDIA is having a ball with that HardOCP article methinks.

Probably.... Doom 3 is a huge game.... it being "best" would really help push cards.

.....I feel bad for ATI. They are going to get screwed in sales these next few months. ATI better hope their HL2 benchmark fares much better. If NVIDIA beats ATI in both Doom 3 and HL2, well, what can I say really besides: ATI, you just got bent over and F*^@ed!!! :nanahump: :nanahump: :nanahump:

LOL. Can hardly call myself a fan-boy considering my other PC is running an ATI X800 XT :p And I fart an extra powerful one to people who can't accept the fact that a card will win a war if it excels in a much hyped game like Doom 3, and the possibility of defeat if NV beats out ATI in a game they have proclaimed their cards to be best at. Of course, in regards to HL2, it's still up in the air. Notice the word "if" in my previous post, and go look up the word "moron" and look in the mirror, heh.

There's no possible way ati will lose in HL2 benches. They owe ATI way too much to embarass them. I wouldnt be suprised if valve went so far as to make sure the nvidia pass runs slower. They'll push 3dc hard and every other tweak they can so ati has a marginal lead. That's cool with me, as long as the 6800 gt can run HL2 @ high res and decent frames. If they have 20 more fps...oh well....as long as I dont dip under 30fps. :)

That would be pretty funny if NV did prove faster in that game though, after ATI pimped it for a year on boxes, with game coupons etc.

LOL could it be another :nanahump: its probably going to be really close though, might even end up very similiar to far cry, nV wins some levels, ATi wins some.

You guys are bringing too much bad karma onto us.

Yeah and when HL2 comes out and ATI will spank Nvidia because we all know Doom 3's sales will only be a fraction of Half-Life 2's. Either way I know my GT will run em' both well enough.

No we don't know what the future holds and neither do you.

I think HL2 will be warez'd more and D3 will sell more legit copies, personally.

I think this calls for a rehash of a great PA comic (please pardon the crappy Photochop):
