Yeah well Microsoft are going to kill off OpenGL in Vesia.

a rather interesting Microsoft document that recommends to people who want to show off Vista to use ATI over Nvidia. It says that: "ATI is preferred to Nvidia at this time due to superior driver support".

@Dazz: Where did you find that quote from?

Last thing I heard about OpenGL's "limited functionality" in Vista was that it only affected programs running in windowed mode (such as many 3D drafting applications), defaulting to the 1.4(?) revision or something similar...

It's from the Inquirer, so take it for what it's worth. And that article says nothing about OpenGL support in Vista at all, so it's a moot point.

You would like that, wouldn't you?
No, the x800xt is better than that.

The Doom3 engine was not "written" for nV cards. It simply just uses an OpenGL renderer. Carmack doesn't prefer nV cards, as a matter of fact his primary dev machine is an XB360 with an ATi chip!

ATi just needs to get on the ball with their OpenGL performance, lucky for them OpenGL is limited to only a few games and some retarded screensavers.

Good to see you running on a DFI Expert man, did you take my advice and go for it?

BTW - Looks like my FX-57 just slightly edges your X2 out in 3DMark05...although you probably enjoy your smooth multitasking abilities, I just couldn't get used to the slower frames so I went back to my FX-57

I'm looking at the FX-60 when it comes out tomorrow (I believe).

Yes I love this board

Whats your FX57 clocked at? Are you running over 3GHz?

Its a shame this X2 CPU's very rarely get over the 3GHz range... the FX60 should be killer if it can do over 3GHz

3.13GHz and so far I've seen the FX-60 doing 3GHz, not sure what cooling though...stock is 2.6

The 6800Gt may win in Q4 and other openGL games but the X800XT is quite a bit faster then the 6800Gt in D3D games.I know my X800XT was faster then my 6800ultra in quite a few games ,but for OpenGL the 6800ultra won hands down.
