John Carmack on 3D

id Software programmer John Carmack did one of his occasional .plan updates on the subject of the current state of 3D cards, headlined "NV30 vs R300, current developments, etc." At one point saying "As always, better cards are coming soon," the update kicks off saying: "At the moment, the NV30 is slightly faster on most scenes in Doom than the R300, but I can still find some scenes where the R300 pulls a little bit ahead. The issue is complicated because of the different ways the cards can choose to run the game." He goes on to outline quite a bit on how this all works.

The driver issue seems to be more of a crap red harring than anything now.
Ati drivers used to suck alot, everyone knows that, but I got an 8500 when it first came out and since then I have not had a single problem with any game due to graphics.
