    I'm having an intersting problem latly with my card. In Doom 3 I can run above 420 core without a problem.. all the way over 430 that I've tested so far.

    Then I go to play CS:Source or Farcry.. and my game will either do the 5-10 sec pause and resume thing or freezes all together. When I lower my core speed down to around 410 it solves most the problems with it freezing.

    Anyone know why this is?

    its been this case for a while.
    OGL games work fine under higher clock speeds without giving artifacts.
    You can see this by forcing the FarCry to run in openGL too.
     
  3. I know why......

    because of Micro$oft :D LMAO

    OPENGL is so much better, i wonder why developers follow that dead brain of BILL GATES.

    you think M$soft DIRECTX will be optimized for the OS right?.....well , think of SP2 , had to be a big release with tons of fixes , it does more damage that you can count :D

    that's why i have my nickname DIRECTXORCIST , because once you use it, you need to call a priest to help you out LOL :p

    I have a question. Is Doom 3 both, OpenGL and directx or just OpenGL? Because i know it uses some directx 9 features.

    Doom3 is opengl, it may be using some of the direct sound features but graphics is all OpenGL

    doom 3 graphics are solely open GL - that way its a very straightforward port to other platforms (linux / mac / xbox)

    however DX is used for input and sound processing on windows machines. Keep in mind that directX consists mainly of 3 API's direct3D, directSound and directInput.

    the latter 2 are used in the windows version of doom 3.
