Default Nvnews gone back to fan site only?

Noticing on a day Hard OCP reviews the new RV350 and there are at least a couple of previews of the new ATI mobile GPUs no mention of them here. Off my favorites list if this keeps up, why would anyone want to be a fanboy of a company? Buy the best for your needs. Obviously don't go to a fan-site for reviews, it looks to me like the screws are being turned by Nvidia on their own.

I mentioned this in a thread about putting up the review

would appear favorable reviews from obscure sites get put up a little faster... but I am more than prepared to give the newsposters the benefit of the doubt.. I know how news posting can be sometimes

hopefully one of em can grab and post the review on the front page...

I hope to God you don't visit Rage3D ever, lest you be dubbed hypocrite of the day.

Why would that make me a hypocrite?

I think in fact that is my point.

I currently own a 9700Pro and a 9700Pro AIW, R3D is a wonderful place for support with great help and fairly regular posts from ATI's own development people, I haven't seen any other site for any other companies graphics cards with such excellent and thorough support forums. It is very much a fan site; I wonder how it made it through all the years when ATI cards weren't exactly on top.

Before I bought an ATI 7500 for the first iteration of my HT box I never went there. Why would I? Their news sucks unless you are only interested in ATI cards; the forum regulars aren't exactly unbiased in their opinions of other graphics cards.

R3D holds a unique position in really being the only place to go if you own an ATI card simply because the quality of the support is so good and they get the best ATI news bits. It is a quirk of fate that R3D was the only ATI site left standing when the 9700Pro burst on the scene and ATI suddenly became the favorite enthusiasts card.

I don't think anyone would expect an unbiased review out of Rage 3D, perhaps that is why it was not given a 5600 review card by ATI, even with honest numbers it would not be a fair review, how could it be?

Are you saying that I should expect unbiased reviews from Nvnews even though it seems in the last few they have taken on a noticeably biased slant?

Being a fan-site is fine but there are sure a lot of Nvidia fan-sites hurting these days and IMO Nvnews has the ability and talent in its staff to be a more than decent Hardware site. I thought that was the direction it was heading.

I guess it's all in what Nvnews wants to be, it looks like in the recent weeks they may have decided on being strictly a fan-site.

nice post... IMO...

and yes... rage3d has good support... some major trolls yes... some not so bright people yes.. and also a lot of crud starters saying their gf4mx is better than the 9700pro or whatever because they tried it and it sucked the drivers sucked... blah blah blah...

cut out people who make posts like that and BLAM you have a much calmer forum

but it is a true fansite lol... no doubt...

my take here is that this place is nvNEWS hence news should be posted... and if you are going to post obscure news that paints a product in bright colors (and yes I do remmeber the first 'OFFICIAL' gf FX benchmark figures posted on the front page here.... showing figures of around 20k points in 3dmark2001se ) you might as well consider posting news articles posting rather detailed info on IQ comparisons in a manner I have personally yet to see...

I don't think the same way as nVIDIA fans here, you see me bitching about how there isn't a "huge" ATI presence in the news here? who cares, there are many sites to go to, if you don't find all your stuff here, go to other sites as well and diversify. These guys post this type of crap all the time, eventually you'll start getting sick and tired of this crap as well.

exactly, we have a great community here and if someone wants attention, they shouldn't go off and rant about how much the site "sucks" for not having this or that. Do it like everyone else does, participate

Pardon me Panty Master, I didn't think myself an Nvidia Fan-boy when I enjoyed my GF3 and 4 and liking the 9700 for what it is doesn't make me an ATI Fan-boy, I do love hardware though and am undeniably a hardware addict.

I can't help but notice that you mention Diarreah whilst at the same time your out-of-context rage makes it seem as though you might be soiling yourself.
