With this type of backup in town, it certainly could. We already know that if a hardware company provides support for 1C:Maddox, they implement it (e.g., Intel CPUs and effects=2).

Good idea, this can only be good for the consumer of both game and videocard. Next you might see Nvidia open its own game studios.

Yep, PCGamer uses the term "gaming goodness." The current knock down drag out brawl between ATI and nVidia is simply good for the consumer in that price goes down and performance goes up with competition <ggg.> Personally I'm an ATI guy, but if nVidia wants to compete, the more the merrier. All the best, LongHorn

Time will tell. BOB is atleast a year away and I'm sure Nvidia and Ati will have some new and interesting products to choose from by then.

I currently run ATI and I can tell you it will be my last ATI card. The poor OpenGL support is unacceptable. They never attempt to address any major issues with the drivers. Just small bug fixes for the super selling games. Atleast we know Nvidia cares about PF...they used it to showcase 3.0. So I dont care who is winning the benchmark test (like they mean anything) when BoB ships. I will be flying with Nvidia as my wingman http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Your absolutly right!

I'm sick and tired of the lack of support from ATI regarding the whole IL2 series. Everytime they release a new driver for a top selling arcade game it fudges something up in the IL2 series...

Since I've switched to Nvidia, I haven't had any new drivers released to date, that have fudged something up for my beloved IL2 games.

9500 Pro and still going strong. Got it clocked up to 335 core and 292 memory as well. When you consider the default speed is 275/270 that ain't to shabby with stock cooling.

And btw one of the drivers 4.1 rewrote the OpenGL part for the ATI drivers I wouldn't call that 'unsupportive'.

I dunno... I've had 3 nvidia cards over the years, then I tried a Radeon 9800 Pro. I'll probably never buy a GeForce again, unless I see some hard proof it's better than the comparable Radeon. I know lots of people have had issues in this game with their Radeons, I haven't. I love mine. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
