Default Re: Was the FX series a failure?

3. Performed slower then excpected bad PR alot of lies remember ?,
4. Even Nvidia them selfs buryed all info regarding NV30 (5800) you woun't find it anymore at .

Later revisions were improvements but still lacking power and finess , so if its not a success for company must be a failure , at time competition had better card plain and simple why denie it remember we compareing Nvidia to ATI not some hopeless 3rd party companys XGI .. ect.

Defending the purchases? Dont start down this road again DVS, The Nv3x Series was not perfect, But if you listen to some people here you'd believe it couldnt play games at all. Even in DX 8.1 mode (Which looks surprisingly similar to the DX 9.0 Path) The Nv3x is gliding along in HL2,

The NV35/36 series doubled the FP power of the the original cards, Though it still fell behind it was hardly the bomb. If the Nv35 came out first, the FX series probably would have been much better recieved.

And no, We arent comparing just ATI to Nvidia, We are comparing a product to every other product currently in existence, and Dollars to the price performance. The 5900XT line was enormously popular, Why? Because it was a great value for money.
