Default Re: GeForce FX 5950 and Source DX 9 performance...

ATI needs it and it gets it -> after all Valve are very obligated for selling their game with XT series without having game at all. So lets wait and see when HL2 is around and 7800Ultra maybe how everything will settle down
Erm, right. So they are using dirty tricks to make the FX cards slower, because the 6800 cards are faster in Doom3, yet they don't touch the 6800 cards. Yep, makes perfect sense.
