hopefully itll run a bit better than the ... *ahem* other versions

That explains the benchmark I saw I guess

keep your leak talk to yourself
http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1647&p=8
42fps
http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1647&p=13
92fps
And that's with a build made in late July.
This isn't late July anymore.

I doubt it. Knowing Unreal they probably are going to optimize the engine a helluva lot then what it was when it was beta. A gf3 would do the job fairly decently minus the extensive eye candy.

the benchmarks they are using are just the fly-by's they dont take into consideration weapons/player skins ingame nor do the tests have to deal with the overhead of AI and Karma physics...

believe me, the real game performance is far less that those benchmarks you have seen...

I'm not trying to argue that it'll be THAT, I'm just arguing that making a game that onlyu people with gf4s could use would be lame. There are a hell of a lot of budget users out there.
And since their minimum spec is a tnt2/voodoo3....
I think my gf3 will do fine.

___
speaking of not much I know just as manhy people with gf3s that say the leaks play fine as the ones who say 'only gf4s can play it'
___
btw I'm just going to end this and say 'we'll see' arguments are really stupid and I believe the developers more than I believe you.
no more arguing here for me

im not contesting with you being able to run it fine on a Geforce 3, i just think that you wont be playing at the high detail settings that they use for the benchmarks...

heh, as for being able to run it on a TNT 2, they (Mark Rein) said that a 1GHz TBird and a TNT2 would get generally about 20fps constant (their idea of playable) - and thats at 512*384, 16 Bit colour and low detail

technically, the 'minimum specs' is what you need to get the game to load up :P

but yeh, good point, they would hardly sell any copies if it wouldnt run well on even top end machines...

/edit - whos arguing?

ok ok sorry my bad, didn't mean for anyone to take what I said so to heart. Yes, I made my judgements from build 927 which seem terrible on my former R8500, and bad on some of my friends GF3's (And of course I don't really have build 927 because after all having a leaked demo would be wrong and naughty)

SavagePaladin, you're right. Try the game on your GF3TI200 and let us know how it is. Who knows, maybe they really will tweak the heck out of the engine before realease. I sure hope they do because it'll make as GF4 peeps own Seriously though, I hope it works well for you, I happen to think game requirements these days are getting out of hand and pricey.

And hey, if it do stink on GF3, the good news is GF4 TI4200 is only $119us these days, and GF4TI4400 is only $190us. Not nearly as high as it was a month or so ago
