    If you looks at most of the games in the chart. The Nvidia cards are foing 16xAA whilst the ATI cards are doing 24xAA which is more taxing for the GPU but gives exceptional IQ.

    And yes Nvidia have been known to drop IQ to gain more performance. They even put a bug inside the game F.E.A.R so that when an ATI card was used it gave horrid performance (they did this because the game was SLI ready). They were found out by ATI and ATI had to counter act the bug within their own drivers to get the game to work and now the game runs amazingly well on ATI cards.

    I really dislike it when companies go so low.
    Thank God we have ATi, without them nVidia would do as they please.

    << got to love em, working like 2 angels in my pc, they do get loud when they are hard at work but my 5.1 sound system takes care of that. :banana:

    I must say ati's drivers have given me alot less issues than the green teams, i remember my 8800gt locking up giving me a purple screen forcing me to restart. I contacted nvidia about that issue and they told me its my setup(said my 650W PSU wasn't enough :biggun:), after 3 months of driver updates and frustration one of their whql drivers solved the problem. This is not a perfect world, just imagine how boring life will be if every thing worked perfect from the start.

    9.3 yes im looking forward to them, every driver release from ATI since 8.8 has given me a slight performance increase and i thank ATI for that, but im more looking forward to 9.4 when they can place more focus on the newer cards, im so glad that they are cutting their losses and moving forward with new technology. BIG :thumbup: for the Red Team, you have given me exactly what i expected from your product.

    I still gauge every thing by Crysis. Since the game was released upto now with all the latest drivers the real performance increase has been what? 10 percent?

    The latter one noticeably increased the performance in Call of Duty: World at War (dt.) and Crysis Warhead (DX10) and Race Driver Grid also received a benefit. ahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahah ROTFL!!!! call of duty - 0.4 fps, crysis - ****ing the same 20 % increase blablabla, fallout 3 - 0.3 fps, grid - -0.3 fps, yeah thats a ****ing noticeable! ;D fok u man! just want to see the release notes, what they will promise this time!
