Heh, you and I think alike Darth Beavis. (and I was getting laid 20 minutes ago and your post made me think about it again- bodacious!)

Heh- if anything ATi is HELPING my ass. If NVIDIA didn't have any competition, I doubt they'd have bother with a focus group, and I wouldn't get the review samples to give my impression of. They'd just sell whatever they make, and we'd all have to buy it, because there would be nothing else.

Honestly,given the obviously high regard you have for Nvidia,i get the impression they could release anything and you'd state it's the greatest thing on planet earth,regardless if the competition is actually better and released their products earlier.


Being in a focus group primarily means viewing things objectively,and call it like it is.

Ah well, you're wrong about this as well. Maybe you should email Charlie for his take on the situation?

And your point is.....what? Playing in 3d makes NVidia better today??? PLEASE......It makes them different, not better.....duh.

I get it you like the play in 3d. But please take the green blinder glasses off and re-read my post. I'll repeat it for you......Right now as it stands ATI has the FASTEST, BEST PERFORMING, MOST EFFICIENT (power usage), MOST ECONOMICAL cards on the planet.......period.....end of story.

Remember this is coming from a guy who currently owns a GTX260 card.....check my sig. Just stating facts people, that's all.

No need,you're quite obvious in that respect,given the content of your last several replies and coming to the aid of Fermi in all of them basically,even to the point of stating that you'd rather still have a Quad GTX295 setup over my HD5970's,despite their faster performance,DX11 compliance and in my case,being able to support up to 6 displays(3 outputs per card).


That's says plenty about your objectivity,or lack thereof...

now if she were at your door then you would have a reason to get all worked up
you can almost see the ****pit on that fighter jet.....

Kaptkarl- do you feel bad when NVIDIA has the fastest card on the market? Have you ever given any thought to whether that is mature or "normal"? Seems to me you must think it's a normal state of affairs to have one's ego hurt by these events that are beyond your control and largely shouldn't matter to anyone but employees of either firm, if you're assuming we would react in this way.

Something to think about Kapt- and maybe speak to a psychiatrist about. Help is available.
Funny stuff Rollo, but don't lose your day job. My point is this. Everytime someone in here posts something positive about ATI, the fanboys here all get their pantines in a wad. Oh ATI sucks.....oh thier drivers suck..........oh thier cards suck. Give me a friggin' break people. It is like thier egos are bruised or something. It's the old FORD vs. CHEVY metality. An absolutley rediculous argument. Some model years ARE BETTER than others. You win some, you lose some. All I'm saying is that ATI is winning right now, and their cards are the best RIGHT NOW....period. Just like Nvidia's 8800 series cards were THE BEST at one point. And there is no assuming here, just look at all the negative posts here in response to giving ATI some some well deserved credit. And sorry, no psychiatrist neccessary.....just calling it like I see it here.

Where did he mention Anti-AMD(or ATI) threads? BTW, calling them ATi is perfectly fine with most people, since it clarifys what product segment youre talking about. Exact same story with Alienware.

This thread is funny. What the hell happened? NV guys get all worked up over stupid obviously bias hardware article, run out of arguments, then abandon the topic to claim ATI guys are getting too worked up over hardware and need to get laid. Funny stuff guys...
