Hardware updates are always going to be justified. They make a product better. Software is a different story, it puts doubt in peoples minds. Just look at the Windows XP patches and what the public feels about there being so many.

Peace,

Did the GeForce 4 prove to be better than the GeForce 3? Answer is yes. Was it perfect? Answer is no, is any hardware perfect? Did I say hardware is always perfect, no.

Your fishing for something here Stealth, but I think your gonna find yourself coming up short. In no way had I ever said that hardware is perfect. I did however say that hardware updates are always going to be justified, where as software updates... are always brought into question. That is what I said. You want verbatim... see the quote above.

Peace,

Peace,

You still didn't answer why you brought software into the discussion.

No, the answer is not always yes. If you only care only about AF then an upgrade from a gf3 to a gf4 cannot be justified because there is very little performance difference. And there have been people on these forums who have complained about the slow AF speed on a gf4. They were unhappy with it, which means their purchases were not justified.

If you want to throw FSAA into the mix, then yes, the gf4 was a better product than the gf3.

There are other options. Although I agree with what John Reynolds said, it is obvious that trying to discuss the subject is a waste of time

Mr. reynolds,

I did answer your question and you have never responded to my last reply to you which was the following:

Quote:
It's in the ability of the code that the developer chooses for the game. How much time is taken to develope the code. I think D3 Alpha runs faster and looks better than Halo on either Nvidia or ATi cards and it is a darn alpha for goodness sake!
And yet plenty of others feel the same too. So many are disappointed about Halo becuase they remember the experience on the XBoX and were eagerly awaiting a better one on their more powerful PC's. Well, it came up short didn't it. Yes, it uses PS 2.0... big deal. It's a completed product while in Alpha stage, D3 offers better graphics and performance... in ALPHA. How is that possible? Becuase Carmack and his team are putting the time into developing the code.

Just because a great game comes out with a great engine, does in no way mean that the derivatives of that game are guaranteeing the same success. It is all in how the code is developed.

So when you say "if an IHV cheats the popular ones used as benchmarks then those benchmarks are worthless", it doesn't mean jack because though 90% of the games may have a connection to the game by way of the engine, it does not mean it will be maximized properly like the successor.

Peace,

1) I resent that and can see why so many are leaving nVnews.

2) If you had even read what I said, I responded to what Wonderer said about FM just releasing another patch to invalidate NV's 3DMark scores once again. *Hence, software updates putting doubt in the actuall software.

3) I find it completely rediculous to say some haven't upgraded to a FX or even a GF4 because of the AF or soley because of the AF performance. That is just a crock.

Why do you keep trying to put words into my mouth? I notice you all team up too as soon as someone has something good or decent to say about NV, and yet you bust their chops because what... they come here with the belief that this is a NV Fansite and they are force fed all the ATi is godly crap. That is just awful. I also don't see how I have ever been rude to any of you in any of my post either. Why are you so quick to judge or prosecute someone as a troll whenever they go against the grain it appears and believe Nv is not all that bad.

Pfffft... Thanks for the welcome.

Peace,

And I did not say I disagreed with you. I had a problem with your untrue blanket statement and explained quite clearly what the problem was. I never mentioned software, nor did I say whether or not I agreed or disagreed with your opinions about software. There was no reason to bring up software when responding to my comments.

You're doing it again. I did not even bring up the gfFX and AF. Why are you bringing up the gfFX?

You are the one being "ridiculous" if you think some people haven't been unhappy with the gf4's AF performance. I've read most every thread in this forum since the gf4 was released, and I have read people complaining about lackadasical AF performance.

It has nothing to do with a particular IHV and everything to do with illogical generalizations and blanket statements.

Did you ever stop and think that when some of these so called NV fanboys get bashed it is not because they like NV but because they like NV without reason? Or that their reasons and logic and gaping holes in them that make their positions indefensible? Just because you have the right conclusion does not mean the steps you took to arrive at that conclusion are correct.

I never called you a troll.

Bah ha ha! That is pretty damn funny if ya ask me.

Peace,

I find it pretty depressing that anyone can enjoy watching this situation develop. It's pretty sickening actually.

I'm sure you meant to add "except for Dig since he's a bit insane that way" but just forgot.

Malfunction is just trolling, note how he's picking and choosing what to respond to and is using the same exact arguments over and over even though they've been shot down before?
