Doom III Benchmarks

Wow... Ati's X800 seems to have fallen prey to it's own hype.

[H]ard|OCP Doom III Benchmark article


Sorry... this ended up not being the full thing I wanted to say.

1) ATi's OpenGL implementation has always played 2nd fiddle to nVidia's.
2) Some schmuck at ATi leaked the Doom 3 alpha code last year, thus pissing off id.
3) In response id has, since that date, claimed that D3 was running better on nVidia hardware.
4) nVidia even went so far as to state that the 6800 series was created with Doom 3 in mind (I think the Hard OCP article mentioned this also).

So now we have some benchmarks that show the 6800 is better then the x800 in ONE game.

Unfortunatly that one game is Doom 3. Oye.

Yah... that's very true.

That's why it's no surprise that Ati came out with their aannouncement that they are going to be updating/fixing/whatevering their OpenGL support... but not for ANY specific reason... none whatso ever.

Riiiiight. heh. =)
