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


I certainly agree ATI has better DX9. We all know how Nvidia screwed this up. Maybe I have selective memory but I have not seen a review where ATI doubles the Nvidia FPS numbers in Far Cry. Even so I own products from both companies and I am of the honest opinion that while my ATI card beats my Nvidia card in almost all FPS comparisons, the Nvidia product runs with less micro pauses. I have two indentical rigs, save the video cards, one had a 5700u in it, the other has a 9800pro by ATI with the new 4.3 cats.

I also feel as Nutty does, 1280x960 is it for res/textures I love that setting.
