    why you so in denile about a cheater driver?
    nv has nothing to do with ati putting out a cheater driver or do you want to blame them too like other on the net lol
    yeah haveing the 480 as the fastest single gpu with no performance bs ugly drivers is a bad thing? ati fanboys at there funniest.

    Could you imagine if nvidia did this for the fermi in couple month. Like drop IQ to improve performance, reckon it still would be ok then?

    Well I have pretty much installed every ati driver since 5870 launch and havent seen any change in image quality at all.

    In fact since I just stuck in another 5870 and changed to 10.3b napoleon total war for me seems to look even better! Perhaps this is placebo affect hehe.

    But since coming from nvidia I love how my games look more than ever.

    Hand to heart this is the truth. So I think these articles are rubbish. :)

    That's cause you need 2 setup's side by side. One running the 10.2 an the other running the 10.3's at the same time. Then it would be like spot the difference, wouldn't be easily noticeable like.

    Lol wow i can't believe some of the people here

    ATI does this and it's "oh, well, that's fine, because i don't notice it"

    Nvidia does this and it's "OMGWTFBBQ HEY LOOK NVIDIA PULLED ANOTHER NVIDIA LOOK AT THEM FAIL!"

    Now, if it truly is less IQ but not noticeable (and by noticeable, i mean noticeable at all in any way shape or form, if i zoom the image 100x, i better not see a difference) then that's fine, but the faces you guys put on is just sad

    Maybe because Nvidia's policies are tricky (e.g. rebranding), while ATI is much better as a company towards their customers. I still remember when I bought a GeForce 440 MX thinking that it was a GeForce 4 really. After some time I realized that it was a GeForce 2 rebranded and improved a little. That's not fair play, of course. And obviously, I didn't visit Guru3d at that time. If so, I would've saved my money.

    Now, with Thermi, Nvidia crossed the line again, you know. I have been an ATI customer for only one year and a half by now, and no complaints so far. My next card will be ATI for that simple reason. Am I an ATI fan boy? NO, just a pleased customer. Am I a Nvidia basher? Well, not intentionally, but some scars are still there.

    Yes, because ATI never rebrands cards.

    True thing is ati has better solutions atm.
    Also,bear in mind that the nvidia cards reviewers had were chosed by nVidia.
    Good Luck to any of you with Fermi,i was going to make 470 SLI but i reconsidered and decided to wait till 512SP version

    Yep, also missing this 1st gen of fermi cards, needs a die shrink then it should be golden.

    Excuse man, but do you pursue posters to prove they're wrong throughout the entire forum? I guess, for your title and quantity of posts, that you are quite a personage on this forum, but could you just stop bothering me with stupid things? Instead, you should use your knowledge and experience here to help newcomers as well as laymen like myself, I think. Thanks in advance.

    And yes, I suppose that ATI rebrands too, but unfortunately the leap between a GeForce 2 and a GeForce 4 "in my case" was too much of a cheat.

    LOL, exaggerate much!?!

    I've just swopped between the 10.2's and the 10.3's to the 10.3b's and can't see any difference...... Maybe some pixel scanning program could find something, MAYBE but so what?

    It can't be that noticable as people would have, you know, noticed it instead of some random website doing deep comparison tests for some reason.

    Its just butthurt fans, trying to find any reason as to why their brand of choice just isn't performing.

    They'll improve fella you need to stop clinging on, they'll come back to rescue you from your obvious torment.....

    Don't forget the HD 5165 or whatever either. Those aren't actually Evergreen chips.

    Thing is they didn't actually do any comparison.(Or did they? I can't find any comparison shots for 10.2 and 10.3 in NFS: Shift) Anyone up to swapping drivers and taking shots in NFS: Shift or one of the other games that got the optimization?

    Stop posting nonsense, and I'll stop correcting it :rolleyes:

    Both companies are guilty of the same things, it's just funny that people pick out one or the other depending on which company they prefer.
