<SwedBear> Do you have any comments about Futuremarks decision to withdraw all the results done with several of your leaked driver revisions?

<NV_Bill> I really don't have a comment on that.
<NV_Bill> next

Quote:
<SwedBear> Ok, since I get completely bombarded regarding this: Can you give any info about the upcoming Detonator 50 drivers?

<NV_Bill> Good timing; I'm happy to say that we are planning on a driver release later this week.

3. <SwedBear> What does 'optimized for and played best on' really mean? I think a lot would like to argue that they play great on competitor hardware to
<NV_Bill> The long and the short of it is that developers in the program are using NVIDIA to design, develop, and test their products...
[19:05] <NV_Bill> If a player wants to play the game pixel for pixel the way that the game was created, you can do that using NVIDIA gpus.
<NV_Bill> It was born out of the fact that most developers and publishers use NVIDIA as their "reference standard" for hardware and driver compatibility.

Thats really not an unreasonable comment, Because up until very recently thats been true, And alot of designers definately do this.

His answer was as diplomatic as you could hope for with such a question.

people either side of the fence will view the comments as either representative and somewhat pr'd gloss that is to the point... or as a fair load of cow excreta

its the nature of being a supporter... no matter how unbiased you may be.. of one company or the other... fanboyism is inherently in our genes

it is the DEGREE of fanboyism that separates the level headed from the rest...

I just find it difficult to imagine how he could have answered the question differently

he could have talked about the little flowers that come with all VW beetles... that would have been highly diplomatic and he would not have been taking sides...

IMO...
