To be honest, I think it will depend upon the ap. It might be similar to vsync, "Aplication preference" And or always force 16 or always force 32 bit.
I really don't know.
I don't really know what to think of the scenerio right now, Do I believe 16 bit precision is enough for games of today and possibly tommorrow? ya I think 16 bit will be plenty,
Do I think this is good PR for Nvidia? No I do not, Nvidia is damned if they do and damned if they don't. I'm thankful that I'm in a situation where I can watch and see without tramatically being affected by whats to come.
in the end tho I think most vendors will opt to use 16 bit on both ATI and Nvidia cards, I have two reasons to believe this. Performance and negligable IQ increases, And Nvidia's influence in the gaming division right now.
I sadly believe you're right...
That's why I'm proposing this approach
Not quite sure I follow here?
What exactly are you proposing?
