extreme tech gets hauled over the coals for sloppy journalism.

nvidia is yet to reply to extreme techs write up.

everyone here is waiting to see what nvidia say...

Not proven yet, we'll see what happens, shall we ? If a new driver set comes out and proves this, then it will shut up a lot of fanboys here (ATI). If not, then it will shut up a lot of fanboys here. (NV)
Do you see ?

You call that journalism ? I call it pay back.

No talk needed. A driver is all that is needed.

No, only the ATI owners. The NVidia owners are waiting for drivers first, talk last.

Looks like you've already made up your narrow mind, no matter what the outcome.
There are always two sides to a fence. I'm sitting on it for now, but you've quite obviously taken one side, while telling yourself that the other side doesn't exist.

I personally believe that another side exists..... just that I don't believe the answers that are being given as of now.

Do you see ?

the driver set in question is the one we have NOW... what happens in the next driver set is really a question for another day... it has little to do with ati fanboys or nvidia fanboys and everything to do with the integrity of this particular IHV and consumers and what they are receiving...

You call that journalism ? I call it pay back.

yes... kyle did a little pay back didn't he ? ET did nothing more than suggest irregularities... they did not SAY it was a cheat.. neither did b3d... the implication of a cheat was there... admittedly but mainly due to looking @ the pictures in question and also looking @ the technical details... unfortunately there are a few other websites that have editors with apparently less technical knowhow who have decided to take this opportunity to get their own little potshots in... THAT is pay back... IMO

No talk needed. A driver is all that is needed.

isn't there a driver set out already... one that is being questioned for the way it handles certain situations in particular programs ?

No, only the ATI owners. The NVidia owners are waiting for drivers first, talk last.

many nvidia owners here have raised questions themselves... as any consumers and as anyone interested in hardware would do... not so much about fanboyism all the time as consumers bonding together over a common view point...

Looks like you've already made up your narrow mind, no matter what the outcome.

There are always two sides to a fence. I'm sitting on it for now, but you've quite obviously taken one side, while telling yourself that the other side doesn't exist.

it is obvious you also have taken a side and if you can make up your mind what is to stop others from making up their own mind concerning the same matter ? note that fantomas never implied that you had a narrow mind or anything like that however

No, thats called double standards.

Let me ask you something,

Do you believe that a company COULD perfect Hidden Surface Removal algorythms in their drivers ?

If the question was towards ATI, then ATI owners would say yes.

If the question was towards Nvidia, then ATI owners would say no, and add thats it's just PR BS Spin.

Yep, looks like double standards to me.
