I'm personally an equal opportunity curser, and am EAGERLY awaiting an answer as to WTF is going on.
Especially since the same behavior was seen in OLD driver sets.

We'll soon see won't we.......

Sorry for the OT
Now back to our scheduled programming....

Reever2 I can't believe you of all people should say this. You have been one of NVIDIA's biggest critics, never missing a chance to point a negative issue about them. Look at your own posts before you dig up others. The facts are not all in so wait before you take this opportunity to argue with my forum members. You wont get a PM either. You've got a chip on your shoulder that's really getting on my nerves. You need to go to a site that you enjoy instead of complaining here all the time.

I still say you should go to a site you enjoy instead of complaining here ALL the time. Don't try and exclude yourself from "some people" either.

Great! Sounds like a plan. Seriously though man, you sound like guys who call into a sports talk radio shows and complain or criticize. The radio hosts will will always tell the guys (who are just wasting their time) to just tune into another station...that there are plenty of other radio stations for them to listen to.

That doesn't sound like anything new...

ATI's texture filtering has been crap for as long as I can remember. That was one of the first things I noticed when I got my 9700 Pro... the FSAA was better, especially at 2X, but the texture filtering just plain sucked.

And when I upgraded to the FX 5900U I realized that I'd forgotten what properly filtered textures looked like!

It's as "valid" a point as saying 2+2=4. Duh. Sure, it's true that fanboys will be fanboys but considering the source, well c'mon.

Yeah, that was what I was thinking. No matter how it turns out, seeing some of the more supposedly "un-biased" people squirm has been kind of fun. Makes you wonder how "un-biased" they really are though.
