I'm guessing you havn't looked at the latest benchmarks. The improvement is at all resolutions and 8xAS, even with no AA, not just high resolutions. The x1800xt is faster than the 7800gtx in OpenGL now.

For the mainstream user with his X1800 XL, ...

Well well well. Not so fast

It's time sites should ignore the Inquirer like traditional media should ignore Jack Thompson.

15-35% performance increase in openGL games like Doom3 and Quake 4...I think Nvidia just lost its edge, beat by ATI in DX9 AND OpenGL now.

Not really, those performance increases are only valid when using high resolutions with high AA settings on X1800 XT.

For the mainstream user with his X1800 XL, he mostly will experience performance decreases when using the OpenGL patch. All others cards (X800 and below) are not effected all by the patch. So a last generation 6600GT is still able to beat a next generation X1800 XL because ATI's OpenGL has not changed, it still is useless, only some memory optimizations have been done.

As an American Citizen I DEMAND that I be paid to watch TV damnit!

You mean some socialist or communist country, right? If not, you should go work for some tv station.


There isn't anything American about the public paying congress in taxes and them paying it back to us.

Not until the x1800xt actually hits the market, for now Nvidia is still king. The 7800GT is still faster than the x1800xl in just about everything, cept for BF2.

We get to be enriched on the discovery channel
bwahahaha Welcome to the REAL America, where wealthy Corporations are paid $B$I$L$L$I$O$N$ to produce crap no one wants, in exchange for Campaign Contributions to "elect" representatives no one voted for.

Actually Discovery Channel's "American Chopper", "Monster Garage", "Dirty Job" and "Mythbusters" are the only shows on tv worth watching. As an American Citizen I DEMAND that I be paid to watch TV damnit!

At least people can stop bitching about spending so much money enriching our knowledge about the world and the universe.

Maybe they'll give everyone a "free" subscription to Discovery HD!
