Default Re: Far Cry shows how pitiful GeForceFX is in DX9 games

Just look at it!!! Shaders, DX9, Insane textures, amazing draw distances. What in the hell would lead anyone to believe its CPU dependant??!?!?!?

Physics and AI? Meh, a 2.4 is more than enough to handle that.

We're talking about the card not being able to feed data to the CPU and Vice versa,

Bandwith would make a huge issue on this.

Theres also the fact that the 5900 Non Ultra isnt really comparable to a 9800 Pro or 9800XT,

Its below both in terms of where it was marketed at originally. The 5900 doesnt even hit 3000 Multi texturing

I dont doubt the game ran better on the ATI hardware,I really dont, But I havent notice absymal frame rates in the game either.
