DOOM 3 Benchmarks Follow-up

Team Radeon has comments from ATI about the recent spate of DOOM 3 benchmarking (story), pointing out the game is not yet available, taking a stab at NVIDIA's precision (in spite of their own "fudging" being questioned by Carmack during the testing), and saying they should have new drivers "available in the coming weeks." There is also a raging Rage3D Discussion on the possibility of an ATI DOOM 3 bundle, supported by some blurry camera phone shots of the associated promotional materials. This rumor is one of those they run through their magic 8-ball in the latest GameSpot Rumor Control/(Mongering) column.

actually, the first on the pointing the finger thing goes to nvidia for "quacked"; a little glitch in a set of ati drivers that messed up a few textrues in quake on the 8500 which nvidia tried to pin on ati as cheating.


That was NO "glitch" and everyone knows it (getting that notorious C before the K and not the E after the K is just a tricky one there %)). The file is so deliberately mispelled. And judging by their OpenGL troubles ATi has ALWAYS had, none to supprising.

But you dont point the finger the whole time you have your little "trilinear optomization" running. nVidia is open with thiers and even offers you the choice to have true Trilinear, something ATI does not offer. But it runs better with the optomization on (go figure) with no loss to picture quality to the naked eye.
