Re: 6800 opengl2 HW accel vs. fx4000?
Do you have any clue to what your talking about?
First off, their is no such thing as the FX 4000. There is a Geforce 4000 MX, but that is basicaly a Geforce 440 MX with 128Mb of vram instead of 64. Incase you did not know, the Geforce 440 MX was a low end card back in 2002. Their is no way in hell it can compete with a 6800.
The fastest Geforce 4s were the TI series with 4600 TI at the top. The gripe was about Geforce FX 5800 Ultras not performing at the same level as the highend Geforce 4 TIs in similar situations (games back then were not heavly shader oreinted). That all changed when they relased the 5900 and 5950 series. But even with that improvement, ATI's 9x Radeon were unstopable. The 6800 and 7800 series was created to take back the crown as the performance leaders, and they suceeded. The fact that ATi came out with comparible product much later than nvidia, proves it.
