And ive heard the same from other ppl that deal with both the PC store i work at (not customers, other geeks) and all the clients i deal with through the Warehouse agree, too. And im not asking "GF4 4600's look better than 9700's, huh?" Im asing which looks better of the two... wothout telling them my tests or what my computer friends think. All this is specifis to 3D... i believe the 2D is better because of some RAMDAC thing... and yes, ATI built... not 3rd party... thou i would like to see a Hercules :)
    no - I mean 3D

    even the 2 systems I have listed in my sig - If I load the same game up on both of them, I definately like the way it looks on the ATi better - some of that may be due to the monitor - but I used to have the GF4 in my AMD box and a Radeon8500 in the P4 & I still liked the ATi better

    Maybe I have a poor example of a GF4 :confused:

    Here's a picture of PNY's Quadro FX 2000, hopefully their Geforce FX 5800 Ultra will use a
    similar cooler, not all of us want to hear a 70db fan when gaming, despite what Nvidia may think.

    The cooler might not have an exhaust fan or intake in the back but its still a really big cooler and looks to me that it still takes up two pci slots.I think I will wait awhile until they can size this monster down a bit.

    Beyond3D have posted a technical Q&A on the FX

    There's been lots of talk about Displacement Mapping support (although, we know this isn't a key feature
    to determine 'Compliancy' for DirectX9), can you clarify what level of support GeForce FX has for it?


    GeForce FX supports Geometry Displacement Mapping.

    What percentage of the NV30 would you consider to be totally new?

    All of it had to be redesigned for the .13 micron process technology. Of course, the Vertex Shader, Pixel
    Shader and memory interface were areas of revolutionary changes and enhancements over previous GPUs.

    If the NV30 happens to be the fastest graphics chipset on the market, it may or may not be a good
    thing (more on that later). But the NV35 is where NVIDIA's high-end performance hopes lie. Remember
    the improvements the GeForce 2 (NV15) had over the GeForce and the improvements the GeForce 4
    had over the GeForce 3? Six months isn't a long time. NV30 was primarily delayed due to, once again,
    the move to a new manufacturing process. The same was true of the GeForce 256 and GeForce 3.
    And remember the GeForce2 Ultra? It was basically a placeholder for the GeForce3, which was pushed
    back from 2000 until early 2001.

    This is part of an article written by Tim Burton and Mike Chambers for NV News, it's well worth a read.

    Whilst I can't confirm the authenticity of this story, it's well worth a read anyway

    Guys.. I dont work at nvidia, and I dont have *That* kind of information. And anything I tell you is never going
    to get validated in any kind of an official way. I simply had a conversation with someone who works at another
    company, whos identity will remain unrevealed. It was basically a long exchange regarding the true nature of the
    delays behind the GFFX, based on obvious connections all IHV's have with TSMC. The gist of it is in that the .13u
    process was *NOT* all Botched up at TSMC, there were definitely problems getting the low-K Dialectrics working
    towards the end of the process.

    hey...come on now - I'm not an ATi fanboy, I almost always have both an nVidia product and an ATi product in my boxes

    there's a very good chance I will own an R350 product at some point - but there's also a very good chance I will have a GF FX derivative at some point too.

    I've always maintained that both companies' cards have their individual merits
