Ahha ! Evidence the 4850 is not as good as the 8800 even !
And one guy points out the NV control panel allows specialized forcing in each specific game, which no matter what ati fanbois say, is AWESOME !
Yes, the specialized come with the driver nvidia game specific default CP settings and the ability to megatweak in there is really great. When new games are installe they appear or alternately you can just browse to their executable to add them.
That is just one more NVidia materpiece butt kickage to add to the long list of nvidia advantages (cuda, physx, now ambient occlusion shadows for games with the new driver), and it is never crowed about enough.
Sorry, I just really hate the ati bullhockey I've been subjected to for over a year now. I'm not anti-ati card, I have some of them, it's just the bs so many try to shove down everyone's throat.
If it's a few framerates at high rezz and aa af I'll take the nvidia card like LIGHTNING with all the other advantages, so numerous - from the light drivers CP, to stability, to driver upgrades that add features (that's been going on a long time like with the Ti4 series) - I just hate it when ati fans say absolutely none of it matters because they have a huge hate chip on their shoulder for nviidia.
Sorry, 3,4,5 or more added advantages and features and it "doesn't matter" ? NO WAY.
I even saw the red fans shrieking over at AT that ambient occlusion sucks and they don't like shadows in games. LOL
They suddenly, hate shadows in a game. Then they clucked if it wasn't for nvidia, ati's tesselation would be a standard, and anything that doesn't run on ati is garbage...
Now that takes some real fanboy illogic to spew that kind of stuff out and they're dead serious. It's even nvidia's fault that PhysX doesn't run on ati cards and it should be destroyed because it's proprietary they say. LOL Right after tessalation is good if it just runs on ati only.
Whatever - it's just amazing. Ati is losing billions so their smaller core saved em nothing - and nvidia has been posting profits all those 9 quarters ati lost $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.$$
Thanks to those who play fair and stop the bs'ing.
