"The above statement is true. Gamers have been getting left in the dark ages."
PC Games are behind the capability of current technoloyg because they inherently have longer development cycles due to QA (since the games must work with an almost infinite number of hardware configurations). When's the last time you saw a Super Mario Beta 3?
But yes, the GF3 technology is already in games. Tribes 2 put in bumpmapped terrain a few months ago, and both SWG and Doom 3 will be made to specifically take advantage of nVidia's technology.
I don't see why you're complaining, though. NVidia comes out with new stuff to stay on top and give a reason to keep people employed. They're in the hardware business, and you can hardly admonish them for making more hardware. If you don't want one, don't buy one.
Your card isn't l33t anymore. So what? Did you think that nVidia wasn't going to come out with any new technology, or something?
Here's a fact about computer software and hardware: If it's on sale, it's already outdated. Deal with it.This comment was edited on Feb 8, 14:42.
