Lets list down the games which are known to favor either nVidia or ATI, or some which does not differentiate between either.

It will help users to choose between nVidia/ATI and might the moderator make a related sticky post after a positive response.

I don't think you got the message here. The OP asked us to post which games would run better on ATI cards and which ones would be favoured by Nvidia cards. You started a list, but you will need to mention which cards would run those games the best.

I'm Pretty Sure Mafia 2 Favors Nvidia, because of the PhysX?

Don't The Dirt Games (Atleast 2-3) Favor ATI/AMD? Not sure about this one.

Dirt 2 and Alien Vs Predator were AMD/ATi DX11 showcase titles.

I thought Metro 2033 was supposed to be more of an Nvidia biased title due to the inclusion of PhysX?

I mentioned DE:HR as AMD as AMD has paid money for them to display the AMD logo at startup. I can only assume they took an extra step or two to optimize the game for AMD GPUs. Or at least AMD would have us think that and run out to buy AMD GPUs...

My friend, at the time of his ORIGINAL post, he just had a list of games, not NEUTRAL as he later edited his post. Here's his edit: Message edited by hyperreader on 10-03-2011 at 07:17:01 AM.

So please, let us not get lost into semantics, this is not what this post is about. If you happened to read the post at a later date than the original date, which is 10-02-2011 at 06:40:11 PM, don't get into petty arguments.

Whoops! Bad copy-paste job! That one was supposed to go under the nVidia list, my bad! It does favor nVidia. I remember reading here somewhere about a dude who was running xfire 5870's and still getting 40fps!

No worries :lol:  I do remember that a couple of ATI fanboys a while back were gloating over benchmark reviews that showed ATi cards getting higher framerats than Nvidia cards regardless of PhysX being turned on or off though, so I'm not surprised that some may feel that it's an ATi/AMD favouring title even though I'm sure I saw the Nvidia logo flashing up on the screen when I downloaded and ran the benchmark demo a while back.

Don't forget the Half Life series. They were based on AMD/ATi as well.

True, people should read thoroughly before placing views coz many times it can mislead others. But then again, some people will bash ATI/ nVidia just for the heck of it (which I'm pretty glad I haven't seen happening here in a while, as compared to recent times at Tom's...man, that was sad!!)

Also, now that you mention it, the game does have the nVidia splash screen. :)

Is that right!! Didn't know it was based on AMD. But it performed just great on nVidia cards. No hitch whatsoever, at least for me! :)

A list is kind of irrelevant at this time. If you want to make a comparison, look at the 2 STALKER expansions. The first, one, nV-optimized, was a total disaster that crashes even if the 20th re-patch. The second expansion (CoP), ATi-optimized, worked perfectly and did not require any type of patching due to game engine related errors.
So in games, AMD code is better.
