Hmmm.

Does that mean only the ones that were "found" have been removed...?
Strange wording.

I hope Nvidia keeps cheating. I like inflated scores, and I plan on bragging about them when I benchmark tomarrow.
I hope my Ti4200 kicks 3DMark2001SE's ass.
I cant install my card untill tomarrow because my girlfriend bought it for me, and tomarrows my 34th birthday :smile:

Hmmm, let me just pick a few fixes:
*The game Unreal Tournament 2003 no longer hangs when loading the CTF-December level
*The game Unreal Tournament 2003 no longer displays corruption when Anti-Alasing is enabled

....a little late with the fixes. Problems like this I would think someone would start sending parts back and begin the format process.

……..display corruption, texture disappearing, Objects flickering, hangs, system is not responding, system rebooting, display going black, pauses, shadow flickering ect, ect……
If the driver issue is a thing of the past, I sure hate to see what they were like in the past.

Well for me this kind of trouble would be unacceptable. Since Nv is working with game programmers and making sure they use Nv card and test on them first, also Nv logo are on some games and some places require a Nv cards, I would say that puts Nv right up there for compatible. Leaving ATi to fix any problems that will follow, hack a lot of test can’t be run, because the drivers for ATi card doesn’t work or doesn’t do them justice, but later they come back with a driver, hmm, wonder who is really doing the optimizing. Let alone there is no telling how long the fixes will take for a game to come out, or if they will catch them all, guess mean while you may have to reboot your system just like back in the good old 9X days, until they do get the fix you need. Nv bug galore, ok if you say so, though I don’t recall such issue and I doubt very much it would hold a candle to ATi bug galore. I heard of a few problems with the FX driver, but let’s cut them some slack, since ATi gets all the slack in the world, fare? I don’t think so, giving ATi cards have been out longer, and Nv has been under change.

Is Nv cheating? I guess that all depends who you ask. I’m sure each card does the best they can to make there card look good, and ATi has had longer to do so. I like to consider it optimizing there drivers, since they both do that, why wouldn’t they? Be it by programming or what not, sometimes the fat has to be cut somewhere, which I can understand. Show me two still pic’s of cut IQ and let me decide. Either way I don’t get that deep into it like some of you do, besides no matter what there is no convincing the ATi fanb’s. All the test I see show Nv as the faster card, some are back and fourth, either way one doesn’t really blow the other away, but regardless it’s still the same old story that Nv is cheating. No matter if these test where just done with recognition of the optimizing, and in fact no matter what as long as the Nv comes out on top it must have been done with cheating drivers. If ATi comes out on top then that must be accurate test, where Nv couldn’t cheat. Maybe we should count the test that ATi can’t run and give them a big 0 for that test, instead of giving them the chance to come back with an optimized driver, but only Nv does that, ATi is as clean as a whistle.

It doesn’t seem like there is any end to the Nv is a cheat or there cards suck, so lets all just recommend ATi cards based on that, even if the fact is the FX card kicks ass. But hay lets not forget the driver issue with the ATi cards, or the h3ll some people will go threw getting these cards to work, especially the ones that had a Nv card previously. So sure Nv is a big cheat, there cards suck, and ATi is the only way to go there cards are perfect, not a single problem, and these two drivers fixes don’t mean or say squat.

Strange that I play most of those games and never had any problems. 9700pro user here btw. Dont take things so seriously lol... Honestly, Ati is just listening to its customers and fixing problems that occur in very rare situations most of the time. So when they say this driver fixes this game they mean that on a few systems this driver fixes this problem on this specific card. In reality most people dont have a problem.

I play UT2003 loads and it never crashes/hangs or displays corruption for example. But 1% of people out there will have a specific card on a specific motherboard using a version of an agp driver that might cause a problem, and this fixes it.

On the whole cheating issue, ATI admitted to "optimising" in the last release and removed them from this one, while Nvidea still say their innocent...lol

Well an NV fanboi can't be convinced either. Why should we cut NV any slack, aren't they the Rock of Gibraltar? Oh it's a new process. Yeah that's it, whatever. They BOTH have issues, but your love of NV makes you blind to the issues alot of people have. Fine you haven't had an issue, probably because you're very limited in your experience. I haven't had many ATI issues, but that IS because I only play a few games that there have been FEW issues for (Morrowind Truform issue is an issue with a 'hacked patch' not Ati's fault).

BTW, link to a list (like Rage3D) you KNOB, instead of wasting so much space.

And I guess Nvidia fans are fine with poor quality images a that's why they bought their cards instead of ones with better quality picture. If you want stills just read the threads in here instead of sharing NV PR. Go to HardOCP, Beyond3D, Anadntech. All of them have extensive examples of the poor IQ of Nvidia's cards. Just look for the FutureMurk articles too to see examples of ever changing IQ to improve scores.
Nv hides their failures in hopes that people don't notice, ATI's been pretty candid about their issues and have done a pretty good job fixing them. Fat is that the fixes mean they are better not current issues. That makes hem better. And 'the way it's meant to be played' hasn't kept issus from kreeping up in the NV camp either. So it simply a PR ploy. Kinda like your post.

Now respond again and try and double you post length again, because volume will = quality; well at least that would be typical NV PR. Bigger Specs, Faster Speed, More Noise! Yipee!

Exactly my Man! Exactly! Still Best in the Biz!
But only gamers talk here it seems (except the occasional Flamethrower post about Quadros), so I have nothing to crow about.

Edit: I considered a Matrox G550/450 for my 'work' rig but decided I might do occasional gaming on it (like Morrowind) so I went with an R9000 Non-pro, which is OK quality and was a little more robust in game playing (but nothing special) AND a little cheaper.
Now that I have a seperate 'gaming' rig, I kinda wish I had gone with the G450 just to compare, but things are OK so I can't complain. I'm just happy with my older Matrox (milenium 4mb) at the cottage, just like some love their old Voodoo cards. I just wish the Matroxes were tops again. Never had a problem with them.

Well I think its the ATi fan boys that need the spraying, there the ones that just go around bashing Nv. And I only bother to post because I’m sick of it! I actually think both cards are good, each with there good and bad, but lets just go around repeating Nv is a cheat and they suck, over and over and over and lets not get past that or try to find any thing positive, but just look for negative. Shame on me for lowering myself to their level, but I’m sick of it. I could give a darn about all this to tell the truth, but danm this thread is filled with mud throwing and it’s mostly one way and I think it’s useless. I don’t want to go to war over Nv vs ATi, because I rather concentrate on the good things about the cards and if people are only going to concentrate on the negative how are they going to recognize the plus’s? Their not!

O well I could give a danm, but if people continual to do this, and then I’m going to look at this thread as useless.

ATI fanboys can be just as bad (even though NV deserved a kicking for the leaf blower); I am just sick of anyone who allows something as benign as a PCB to bring out their tribalism...
June 24, 2003 2:43:36 PM

Yeah the leaf blower was a bad ideal. I think that card has been discontinued and Nv doesn’t even list it on their sight anymore. Let me take a shot at that, I believe that was do to the DDR2 memory, but the new cards are back to plan DDR so they don’t get as warm, they lowered the clock, but the memory bandwidth is up to 27.2 GB and kicking butt.
So sure the leaf blower sucks, but IMHO the new cards have potential. Does anyone recognize this, does anyone care? A few, but a lot keep bashing and don’t keep it separated, so there for all Nv suck or are cheats, and no matter what they aren’t going to change their mind, there the one that is refusing to recognize a contender their the ones limited them self by only hearing or seeing what they want. And what help do these people offer a person with a Nv card? Well you should return that card at once and get a ATi card. Not very helpful if you ask me, but hay I can’t stop people from going around and saying that or Nv sucks, Nv is a cheat. But hay if a lot of people are ATi fans I guess they can get away with those kind of remarks.

Hay I don’t want to help someone, I just want to jump in and say Nv sucks, Nv is a cheat, you should of got an ATi card. Do we need this useless posting, o well guess there isn’t anything that can be done about it. I never cared what anybody thought of me, call me what you will I’ll take it with a smile, and IMHO these poster are useless, because they only see one side of things and have nothing better to do then go around spreading the love.

What a load a Frakin' Tripe! YOU came into an ATI Catalyst Thread (mainly posted to let people know that they are availible) and YOU started throwing the MUD; here lemme quote your sorry apoligetic/apoplectic ass "Yes get your buggy ATi driver fix at once.". Don't play FAQin' innocent.
You're a big NVidiot PR-boy, and don't tell me "I don’t want to go to war over Nv vs ATi, because I rather concentrate on the good things about the cards" Because I haven't seen you ONCE give props to ATI. Just defending NV with your tired excuses. I have promoted Nvidia; their PNY Quadros ARE Great, and I said (at the time of release [not knowing what we know now]) the 5900U and 5600Urev.2 both looked good, I still recommend GF4s for people looking for cards on the cheap, and I don't criticize people for the purchases they've already made unlike some people (including yourself), and I pump Matrox whenerver I think it's appropriate (but I'm a realist) for multi-head apps and for the best 2D performance (and if you want to play a game on 3 montiors at 5 FPS). I have also criticized ATI for cheating too (hate that both do it, but it appears there is still a larger leaning in one direction).
So don't give me the BS that you wanna play nice until your actions prove it. As for considering the thread useless FINE, it wasn't meant for YOU anyways, however your Nvidiot brain couldn't keep you from entering an stirring the pot and slinging the $h!t, cause that's ALL you do around here. Contribute something USEFULL instead of blanket BS.
Now come back nd complain that I'm a typical ATI fanboi (which would be ignorant on your part) and prove me wrong, that you actually HAVE something to contribute around here.

Prove me wrong! Make a Faq'in difference in a POSITIVE way!

JIF, be honest unto yourself! You do care who wins otherwise you wouldn't keep doing this! I've noticed it too; Every time someone asks for advice on purchasing you always point to nVidia even if there happens to be a better choice from ATi. Every time you try to say "Oh I don't really care about it (the card wars)" it gets harder and harder to believe you. Every post of yours I've seen has labeled ATi as being inferior for BS or untrue reasons, with a generic "oh, but ATi is really okay" shortly thereafter. If a man can think of decent reasons for why something is inferior, whether I agree or not, I'll give him a listen, but when he goes around blowing about something and then lying to cover it up, that just makes us realize how you truly think.

If you were looking for bug discussions, the go to Rage3D, there's a HUGE Catalyst thread there. This thread was simply to announce the fact that the new drivers were availible. As for the ATI vs NV sidetrack, you can thank Shadus for that in his typical style.

Well you might wanna try the CAT 3.5s (but eve that might not do it depending on the reason)

Did you completely eradicate the Det drivers before installing the ATI? If so it may be something else (maybe not even related to the drivers but to some other incompatibility issues)

Without specifics it's hard to tell.
