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.

  • Carmack did note the driver differences/enhancements.


  • Unless Carmack is a liar, iD and [H] did what they could to have a level playing field.


  • Drivers will improve performance, but will ATI's drivers improve performance 30% along with matching performance increase from nviDIA.


  • Pound for pound, the 6800 GT seems like a much better purchsae than the x800 PRO. The GT will certainly beat my 9800xt in Doom 3, seems to beat the x800 Pro quite a bit in Doom 3, and should certainly have at least equal performance of my 9800xt in Half-Life 2.


  • Of course, I would have purchased the x800 XT and possibly the 6800 U at MSRP in an instant. Why didn't I? Oh right, because the cards either are not available or have a $100 premium.


  • ATI, before you work on Doom 3 bundles, can you clarify where my Half-Life 2 game is? Or why, even when Half-Life 2 is available, it will take four to six weeks to get me my game? Heaven forbid you take my information now and get ready to ship my game on day one.


  • Wondering where 'ol Pete went off to,
    Ray
