In the Ghettooooo.

Ati's developed a new term, <A HREF="http://www.beyond3d.com/articles/rs300/" target="_new">Gaming Ghetto</A>, just curious where you think you stand.

I think of myself as the Maitre'D of the Gaming Hell's Kitchen.

Which cards do you think populate the Ghetto?

Which games deserve to stay in the Ghetto?

Just something to ponder-osa.



oh yeah, it's also a review for the new integrated chipset from ATI. <A HREF="http://www.beyond3d.com/articles/rs300/" target="_new">http://www.beyond3d.com/articles/rs300/&lt;/A>

ooo but the chip uses teh 800mhz FSB of teh p4

most interesting


i see where this is going . i wonder what nvidia has planned ? seems ATI thinks the huge heat producing video cards of now are going to be obsolete. makes sense if you think about it. and ATI has always ruled for integrated graphics


*intested now*

I don't get the "ghetto" part either. I can't help thinking of a bunch of inner-city gang-bangers with laptops and pocket-protectors. "Yo cracka', don't nobody be dissin on ATi 'less they fixin' fo me to bust a cap in they a$$."

I was refering to the dead space described by ATI, between the ever increasing performance of rigs and games, and the ever increasing number of people buying 'bargain PCs', and the growing gaming population thus leaving a big gulf or Ghetto between those extremes. I would say that these people are MX/Intel Extreme/R7000/ANY Xabre users. IMO.

Anyways, just thought it would be fun to put things in this 'ghetto' like crap games that play on any card (but suck!), and crap cards that won't play modern games at ANY resolution, despite finding themselves still on the shelves at BestBuy, etc.

Oh well, it was funny in my head, but then so was the Reality Game 'Celebrity Stalker'. From Infatuation to Incarceration in under 1 hr.
