Because Nvidia is not forcing 16 bit precision unless specifically requested.
So nVidia is just going to use 16-bit precision unless the application/game SPECIFICALLY calls for 24FP?


Do I EVEN want to ask if you think that all DX9 apps will call for 24FP by default or do you think they'll query the driver for a preference?

(Damn it, I just didn't want them to be able to wiggle their way out of this that easily!)
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
