    From what I've read, I know farcry will support virtual displacement mapping, that can be done with SM2.0 without a problem.

    Supporting SM3.0 for 6800 series in farcry would make a difference only in speed... but the patch isn't out yet... so I don't know if I'm right. It'd be good to see some SM3.0 effects ;)

    I'm only saying that right now, they don't support PS3.0.

    About painkiller... I also don't know if they will support PS 3.0, I only know that the game is a DirectX 9 game (not 9.0c).

    The 6800 launch actually had these games listed (painkiller, farcry) as SM3.0, so we can expect patches out soon that enable it.

    As for the slides, I think they're hilarious!! If all that is true, I would laugh. Oh wait, I am laughing. You'd think reviewers would underclock their cards to correct speeds if they got o'ced ones, and not make big statements about it.

    "up to 3% difference" = MAYBE 1-2 fps in the newer games.

    I still don't understand how some of this stuff gets leaked onto the web though. I'm sure if an nvidia employee leaked this, they wouldn't have a job to go to, so either they were "leaked" --> conspiracy by nvida or actually leaked and some employee got in deep caka for it.

    Just my thoughts. I still think the 6800 is a nice deal, and seems to be becoming available v/soon.

    I was talking about the present.

    Now... if they will have support for SM3.0 it's not the same as a game that was written for SM3.0 from scratch.

    Unreal3 is the game I call a SM3.0 game. Not a patched SM2.0 game.

    Have you seen Unreal3 engine video??? Those images were way different from everything I've seen so far. I know it's been run on a 6800, but I noticed some stuttering in the outdoor areas... imagine what'd happen when you add players, monsters, physics, etc. We really need new hardware to play Unreal3 with all the Eye Candy, I mean, a really capable SM3.0 card.

    That's why I still state: those new cards from NV and ATI, are cards for you to have fun NOW... not tomorrow (year 2006). And that's why I also don't believe in 6800 as a SM3.0 capable card.

    come on guys no more flaming, we don't want this thread locked yet,

    and..... the difference with SM3.0 will be little for us....

    for the developers it will make a huge change, cause its easier to program

    I think the flaming stopped. Now we are just discussing about SM3.0, etc etc.

    The flaming stopped when we discovered Bill was the one to flame.

    So... if you want to flame: then you can't stop seeing this brand new movie!!! From the director of Kill Bill.... we proudly present: FLAME BILL!!!! With all kind of SM3.0 effects, with the XT series power and the MAC stupidity!!! You will be like this :eek:
