Yeah, nVidia wins if you leave AA & AF off...if you turn any of those on the ATi card toasts 'em. I don't know about you, but if I'm paying HALF-A-GRAND for a a video card I'm kind of expecting to use AA & AF.

If the top ATI is better than the top Nvidia card why don't ANY other benchmarks show that?

Again, turn on AA & AF and see the difference both in image quality & speed...nVidia just can't compare right now.


What's Cheating ?
nVidia, I thought we had covered that one already.

3dMark2003 claims to be about apples-to-apples comparisons. What's the point?
A fair and honest head-to-head comparison of a cards features and performance, some of us like that.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
