Though you are right that up to their id tech 4 engine,they used OpenGL,but that was before DX10 was even officially released.

The only thing that says he has switched to DX is a slashdot posting with no link to a direct qoute from JC himself. But yet everything else still says OGL.

And here's the crazy part,intel are coming out with 6 core/12 thread CPU's,and not just for the very highest end either,and so is AMD with 6 core thuban processors,both of which can be used in current motherboards,and within the coming months,so in practical terms,why would i worry about GPU based physics in the short term at least?
Yes they have drivers, but THEY ARE NOT CERTIFIED DRIVERS. Nvidi has released 4 OCL certified drivers already.

Yes, because in the world of lawyers, one should always show and release a product where the licensing for it isn't settled yet thus opening yourself up to a whole world of suits.

How the hell was Nvidia desperate enough to accept you in their focus group is just mind boggling given all the arguments you've used so far in this thread,it really is.
No, I think you mean it in "Yikes, this guy figured me out" way.

You've been all over my posts all day, firing back your FUD and sophistry. But here we are, hours later, multiple responses later, and you still haven't taken those 5 minutes to prove you bought those 5970s and monitors?

Couldn't buy a receipt on Ebay or Photoshop one yet? Would have been a quick enough way to shut me down, but now if you post I'm still skeptical.

I think I've flushed out a real High Road viral marketer.

I guess we'll know for sure once the game is out.....To be honest,i'm tired of all the videos they've been showing for the past 2+ years,so it's time they got it released by now.

Of course not,but i was mearly pointing out that a long time will pass by the time it does get settled,no matter which side wins,and it's far enough down the line that it shouldn't even be though of as anything that will make Nvidia any money,any time soon.


Hell,given how large intel is,and the huge amounts of money they have,i wouldn't be too surprised if they could buy out Nvidia and their wallet wouldn't even feel the dent,as they are the 800lb gorilla of the industry afterall.

And I'm sure you'll keep saying it as long as ATi pays you, correct?

You'd probably love to banter with me all day every day- makes the numbers look good.

FUD???....standards unification is fud,who got out with DX11 cards first is fud,who has yet to release theirs is fud also right,and the list keeps going on and on,but it's all fud to you of course.


You're positively insane bud....Seriously.

Not really,since you were the one going on with the market share angle....Too bad they're going broke if they keep up the large discounts they have to with their current GPU's,in order for customers to be remotely interested in them,since their new products are so ****ing late to the market.

Thats the SDK, NOT a driver. You do now the difference right? Another point is that that SDK is Beta 2.0, certified compliant with 1.0 and NO link to a CERTIFIED driver to support the cards listed. Speaking of cards, anything not DX11 is beta support for OCL, all CUDA capable, gee thats G80, G92, G94, G2xx cards have certified drivers and support. HUGE difference concidering ATI/AMD has been touting OCL since its creation.

Actually you are partially right there in that while PhysX is free to use,Nvidia requires those who do to implement it using the Cuda API,to which ATI says no thanks,as direct compute also exists and it's an open standard that works on all vendors....The pesky point i keep bringing up according to rollo.

Actually,if you have a non Nvidia card installed,it actually disables AA support within the game itself,while if you do have an Nvidia card,the option is available in game....Seems to me that the game basically detects the card when it first starts and goes from there,but here's the kicker though,ATI GPU's have the same hardware features that Nvidia has regarding AA....There's no difference at all at that level(DX10 cards remember?),so it really is an intentional boost to make Nvidia hardware better artificially.

So is ATI's "The way it's meant to be played program",what's your point?

Which usually happends when your not on the move on the laptop and have it plugged into an outlet,not just running on the internal battery anyhow,since if you enable the faster graphics core when running in straight battery mode,guess how fast it'll last on it's charge.


It's a cool feature for sure,but there's still limits here.

And how many posts have you made where you could have proved you're not an ATi viral by posting your receipts now? 5? 10?

Kind of hoping that "valid question" will go away aren't you?

ATIs is called GITG or Get In The Game and they have pretty piss poor Dev support.

So they have the SDK that supports OpenCL but no driver is that it?(it clearly states it on the link)...Does that make sense to you?
