Thx for the info,but what about the drives that read the 3D blue ray discs themselves,are the current ones compatible or do we need to buy new players?

I would say that we will need new drives to support 3D. Other than the PS3 all stand alone players aren't compatible. And the PS3 will need firmware to support it first.

I don't think anyone who is open minded does. If he was at least as harsh on AMD\ATI as he is about Nvidia. I mean other than the 5800 series from Nvidia which ATI kicked but with there 9700Pro. Nvidia has been ahead of ATI for 90% of the time. But he never reports anything that favors that truth.

Well,to be honest there was also the HD4870 X2 cards,which Nvidia didn't manage to beat until the GTX295 was released 6+ months later in early 2009.


Also the HD3870 X2,using a pair of RV670 GPU's that after over a year of not having any competition for the 8800 GTX,which was a killer card lets face it,and the X2900 XT a delayed,power hungry and hot running flop,finally managed to be generally faster than the 8800GTX overall.


In earlier years than that though,between the Nvidia NV40 and G70 GPU's and ATI's R420 up to R580 GPU's though,win or lose depending on the game and settings chosen,the competition was always pretty close between them,usually within 10%..so not really dominant either way to be honest.


It really was the G80 GPU in the form of the 8800GTX,that really held the performance crown for over an entire year without competition from ATI....It didn't happen before or since then basically.

So the GTX 480 was'nt what everone excepted,Go back a while and everone had ATI/AMD going out of buisness because of there products,and now they have caught up and past with the video cards and there CPU's while not the fastest are well price for a good budget system.Nvidia will be back ,just like they always do.It may take them a while ,but they will be back with a killer card,just like Intel has killer cpu's.I pretty sure I will go with ATI cards this go around ,but next round who knows.Nvidia is not dead yet.

Nvidia is far from dead. Heck, they usually make a pretty decent card too. Their pockets are far deeper than AMD's, so they've got a definite advantage in terms of R&D budget.

However, AMD cards are the way to go at the moment. That may change in a month... who knows.

Actually,that needs an update,as with the partial sale of the factory AMD used to own in germany,and is now partner with global foundries,and the Intel settlement suit behind them as well,which Intel payed AMD 1.25 billion,they now have 2.3 billion in cash reserves,which is more than they've ever had period.


And more than enough for decent R&D budgets for both their CPU line,and of course,graphics and new chipsets releases,so i'm sure they'll be a pain in the ass for quite some time still.


As for Nvidia,given that the GF100 is a new architecture,even if the first version of that architecture isn't quite a good as people expect it to be(big if there),it doesn't mean Nvidia is screwed in the least,since we can easily draw comparisons with the R600 from ATI when it was released.


Even though it also didn't live up to expectations in it's first incarnation,the Current Cypress chip is the ultimate expression of the failed R600 chip with DX11 features added to it,and correcting it's weaknesses,such as texturing power sucked hard with only 16 texture units in the R600 for instance,and Cypress has 80 of them now,and it kicks ass as we all know....It's basically the R600 enhanced on some serious steroids.


The basic architecture of the GF100 will likely last at least 2~3 years,before a brand new one is released yet again,and it'll go thru die shrinks,faster clock speeds and other feature addition/tweaks within that time period for sure....It takes a few years to really design something new from the ground up.

Who said it is not what everyone expected. No one but insiders know for sure, so everything else is just speculation at this point.

I hope neither dies...I'm an NV person, but the ATi competition is good for all of us...

It keeps both companies moving forward and not completely outrageously priced.
