i dont see ,the fairness here... at all .
so that why i dont care too much about numbers in
Syntetic benchmarks like 3dmarks /SHaders marks/RIghtmarks
they can be "legal" and at the same time manipulated
their programming to benefits more ,one IHV video card
arquitecture . (cough) PS1.4 video cards..
if Nvidia Nv30 were not delayed by 6months ,the
"standar" now in DIrectx9 will be other.
for me the real BEnchmarks are games.,
and here is where ATI now have trouble .
nVIDIA specifically chose not to be able to access the source code so thats in their hands. This is an outright cheat and is not morally right in giving the average consumer clouded conclusions of what the best video card is. But who is morally right nowadays? That is why I choose not to give my money to nVIDIA...all goes back to the GF4 MX thing...everyone cheats though, but I choose to make an example out of nVIDIA...rofl
