Ok, when the x800 is released I want to make a deal. If ATI beats the 6800 I want you to post as many posts about ATI being great as you have, and plan on continuing, posting about Nvidia.

I expect hundreds of posts about how you want ATI to have your baby.

Deal?

Wheres the deal part? Your simply asking that he do something. For it to be a deal you have to be offering something or comprimising on something in his favor so as to constitute "dealing". Other wise you are merely making a request.

No if X800pro beats 6800Ultra, Kinney will have to paint the ATi logo on himself and call himself a dumbass in the graphics board also he has to submit the pic to Eden to be posted on the album

If X800pro sucked, DH will do the same except its nVidia logo

Now you turned it into a deal. I hope they both accept it. Although I have doubts if X800pro can match 6800U, so I won't be joining in on these deals. I think the odds would be in Kinneys favor if it's pro verses ultra. XT might be a different story.

Ok, the deal is that he can continue to spam the forum with his pro-nvidia banter in exchange for him doing the same thing if ATI is the king. Otherwise it's just annoying to hear him preach and try to post skewed benchmark results to make the 6800 out to be jesus reincarnated.

Everyone on the forum, except Kinney, is waiting to COMPARE the x800 and 6800. Kinney is ranting and raving about a card that isn't released and whose competition hasn't been reviewed.

I don't think the X800 is going to catch the 6800 (gut instinct etc.), but it might run cooler and consume less power. Even if it is slower, it won't be an IQ-crippled turkey like the last batch of NV GPUs...

I won't be able to afford either, so I'm not that bothered; however, I'm sick of dumb fanbois (of any persuasion).

Deal made on this end. Are you man enough?

The self admitted dumbass part is a bit childish, seems kind of silly and petty to me but the paint and photo part I see nothing but good fun.

Come on now. That just isnt true.
I'm not ranting about the X800Pro.. hardly.. let go of that bitter sound you've been spouting my brother!
besides I'm done for now.. it sure felt good watching you welps get all worked up that not everyone "falls in line" to your mob mentality.
F'n commies got ahold of the ATI fan club round here!

About the bet, bring that famous blind ATI conviction that seems to run through you.. how much faith do you put into those French Canadians eh DH?
Muwahhahahahahahaha!!!

Oookay?


Pfft. Yeah. Then if ATIs accelerated part release gets to compete with the GF6800Ultra then the new NV gets to compete against it in this competition.

Why should <b>I</b> have to wait 3 extra months for ATI to get their decent card out to humiliate DH?
Why not wait 3 MORE months and put up NVs revised NV40, that makes as much (non)sense.

<b>Either ATI could f'n hack it,<i> or not.</b> </i>

You really think its unfair considering a ATI clock advantage? I dont necessarily think so and it could be very close if not a loss for NV.

It is ATIs chosen architechure, but should not be compensated for because NV40 was kept a secret (enough) for ATI to release a 12 pipe card..
AND WE DONT EVEN KNOW IF IT IS A 12PIPE CARD YA TOOL!

That being said, I think it shows a huge ATI bias to compensate for them because of their subpar business decisions.
Even funnier considering you really have no idea what it even is and <b>the ATI excuses/apologies already roll in.</b>

Its judgement day baby.

No we go and post a poll on Anandtech forums where the most enthusiasts visit on the web (130k of them) for them to vote on it. For one week.
Thats if we cant come to agreement.

I have no quarrels with partipating either way.. heck I'll do it even if DH loses. So it shouldnt be an issue.
This is more about revealing the lack of faith people <b>really</b> have in ATIs engineering.

Frankly put from an engineering standpoint, NV makes ATI look mighty pathetic for as long as they've been a player in the GPU field.

This fanboyistic love for the post R300 chips is based in nothing that is purely ATI.
No innovation, no talent, <i>just a lucky shot</i> and thats what I'm here to prove.

Do I have a deal?

Crap.

I haven't raved about anything yet since I'm waiting for both cards to be released or at least one of them to hit the streets. So far I think it's a win-win for the consumer no matter how this ends up.

Oh shut up! You have picked sides, your snide comments about NV have been infesting this forum for some time now.

If you were just joking, maybe you can realize how I merely enjoy being a part of the 'war' as well.
I dont have sides, I merely have had better luck with NV products.
You buy one car and it does well you're more likely to try another one again.
Its not like I havent owned ATI products, and I know you have purchased both as well.
So again, its all in good fun.

But if you are opting to piss on the party then that is your prerogative.
Apologies to Bobbie Brown. /shudder

Well, I don't particularely like the 5xxx FX series since it sucks compared to the competition. That's not a crime and frankly only an idiot would buy a 5000 series card when they could get an ATI card that is better. It's pretty clear.

But that's not what we are talking about.

We're talking about the compulsive nature of your love for the 6800 and your hatred for ATI. You masturbate in front of the new Nvidia mermaid and I am worried about you.

Let your hate go man. The force is strong in you and you want a green lightsaber don't you? Those red ones don't net chicks. You WANT a green lightsaber!

i believe the term "nvidiot" came before "fanatic"


because nvidia fans just couldnt come to terms with the fact that the GFFX sucked at shading, and was slower in most other areas at first


so, really, you dont know what your talking about. ATI has had superior cards for a while now thats why peeople support them. and where do you see poeple denying that the 6800 isnt the fastest card out right now? wheres the blind worshipping that you describe

um, your describing the very thing you say you arent, which is being sided

how many posts have you made about ATI, showing the greatness of the once best-performing 9800xt, or aout the its greatness as a company? how many posts have you made other than about the 2 cards you have owned, complimening ATI?

your probably the most biased person here, which is the funny part because you stereotype US as being bias'd..

i know your going to have a 2 paragraph rebuttal for everything ive said but frankly who gives a crap lol, its so obvious that your basically known for your fanboyism now and not much else

Everyone said that either the 5900 was going to be made or not with the drivers and it wasnt enough when they succeeded.

Its never enough when it comes to NV in this forum, cant you see that yet?

Kinney, I almost never post here anymore because of the likes of the ATI sphincter spelunking gang, and the overall hostile environment Tomshardware forums has turned into, but just for you I am bothering. Far too much trash talk and attacks against people for no reason here. Many of your pseudo friends your arguing with I put in their place years ago (they will deny it of course) over how ATI drivers and tech support suck. My advice to you, if you value your time, is to not waste it and to ignore them and find another forum less hostile to counter points of view. However if your really having fun then have at it. I wish you luck.

Balls, said the Queen if I had them I would be king!
April 21, 2004 2:20:38 PM

Haha, the Ati Sphincter spelunking gang. Hey, does that make you a member of the Nvidia Pedophile society?

Seriously, you Nvidia fanboys are a joke. Almost everyone here who Nvidiots are claiming are Ati fanboys have said that the 6800 is an impressive piece of hardware and has a really good chance of being the king when compared to the R42x. We're just waiting for the r42x to actually, you know, SHOW UP before we make up our minds which is better, if that's OK with you.

Automatically and unquestioningly slurping up any company's white gooey PR juice doesn't sound too appealing to us I guess. Go figure.

Maybe everyone who doesn't automatically assume that Nvidia always makes the best video cards in the world is considered an Ati fanboy to you. Pathetic.

Your ignorant attitude is shown in your statement "Many of your pseudo friends your arguing with I put in their place years ago over how ATI drivers and tech support suck."

Um, years ago? Years ago Wal-Mart was a single store and 3dfx made the fastest video cards on the planet.
The point being that things change, even if we want them to remain the same so we can rally behind our favorite brand's flag. Welcome to the new milennium.

Yep, fanboys are a pain.

Nvidia knocked ATI for six with the Ti4600 and derivatives, but ATI knocked Nvidia for six with the R300 and derivatives.

If Nvidia wins this round with the 6800, then so be it. Ditto for ATI with R42X. If the performance advantage of one versus the other isn't drastic, then there might be sound reasons for buying the slower card (power, heat, noise, drivers, size etc.). If the winner's advantage is drastic, then I hope that both companies are still able to compete (in mid/low range segments etc.)

Fanboyism is DUMB.

Thanks for that post Hobbit. Havent seen you around for a while, its good to hear support from an old school member.

I'm really not saying anything that is not reasonable, knowing this it is true I have found many pseudo friends in this forum. I've never thought of it that way but Cleeve (one of my former favorites) has definitely surprised me. Most of the hostility is due to noobs like this 'captainnemo' and 'darko' type f*ggots.
I do value my time and I've posted alot of good information over the years and helped alot of people.
I'm really not having fun anymore.

I completely agree with your post.
If you have any suggestions, or have found a more accepting and unbiased forum with some more educated regulars let me know.
Prior to 2001 I posted at Anandtech, and most of these guys would get bounced straight out of that forum with half of the stuff I've seen posted here. I might start doing what you do and post on multiple boards.

PM me.

You know Kinney, I'll agree with you that this forum has become quite hostile against you. And I'll agree that it's certainly not something we want to see in a forum. And it probably doesn't feel very nice.

But, damn it man, you are one of the most inflammatory posters I have ever seen. I mean, come on dude! Do you have to push everyone's buttons all the time? What kind of reaction did you expect?

Have you ever posted anything positive about an upcoming Ati card? Have you ever made a remark about how a certain feature of a non-Nvidia card is nice, or a good idea?

You know, it gets old fast... almost every post you make has a pretty one-dimensional slant to it. You keep doing that for a couple months and of course people are going to get their backs up. Are you surprised?

It gets old. It gets tired. It makes people put their backs to the wall and feel like they have to defend themselves.

You know what? You just made a real nice post in the "Far Cry Pixel Shader 3.0" thread. I really noticed it, do you know why? 1) it was from you and 2) it didn't defame any non-Nvidia companies. It almost sounded <i>humble</i>. Nonagressive. People can respond to a post like that without feeling like they have to defend themselves.

Usually, you end a post like that with a jab at Ati. I'm serious, think about it. Honestly, that's how you are percieved. And there's a good deal of justification for that perception from what I've seen.

I usually let this $hit roll off my back but, you say so much negative stuff it got to me. Then again, who am I but some shmuck on a message board? Why should you give a crap what I'm saying? I don't know. Whatever. For what it's worth, in my worthless opinion, a little more humility would take you a long way.

That's my two cents.

April 21, 2004 11:58:12 PM

You already stated I have no credibility, if thats how you feel of course I'm not going to listen to you more anymore either as I dont think thats true.

Who cares if I jab at ATI? Does not Ape and Co. jab NV subversively all the time as well?
Those arent real questions, but statements because everyone already knows the answers.
I'm not dragging anyoen else into this, I'm just stating we can all do what we want.

My viewpoint is like this-
I do what I want and think, if others dont like it, tough.
I make my educated decisions and form my opinions from that and I am willing to handle the heat from that.

Of course, I think most of the critisism is unfounded (like yours) but I admit to being overly aggressive.
I've always been one of those guys people either love, or hate with a passion.

Big deal. Either befriend me or hate me. I'm a cruel and aggressive enemy (as evident from my ATI bashing) and I'm a staunch friend to the end.
You wont ever see me not back up my friends on this forum.
Call me old fashioned. Someone, or a company has to go very far (after they've been good to me) to earn my hatred. You dont see it much on this board, but many people have had many quirks with ATI products like I contended with my TV Wonder for YEARS and even had quirks with my brand spankin new 9800s.
Dont believe me? Why dont some of you assholes do a search on Rage3d for username "kinney" and see my evolution of time after time after time after time attempting to give ATI "more time" and more f'n excuses and hottricks that we the user community had to come up with, frankly I think trying out the R300 era was MORE than ATI deserved from me.. I even sent them bugs I found through their dev partipation program. I did the search a while back just wanting to checkout my old posts there and the first one still on file is from '01.. so I've EARNED the right to bash ATI unlike so many of the noobs who dont know [-peep-] that reside in this forum.
The old cards I have of theirs are just plainly put, very subpar driver wise and performance wise for their times. While Ape calls these things "ancient issues", they are very much not. ATIs subpar performance, to be fair is actually what I would consider as barely being acceptable on my standards.
Not acceptable.

If NV's IQ is now an "ancient issue" as well, they why all the snide comments everyone posts?
Because now, it appears that is also "ancient".

Thats disregarding of course, that software support and stability are FAR more important than some IQ tradeoffs (which both companies do anyway) that are completely up to user perception as to what is right and what is wrong.
Is that really how low and pathetic ATI fanboys have gone?
For software support, its either there or its not.. but IQ, thats the golden child argument for ATIs useful idiots everywhere because its so subjective to the viewers opinion.
So just run rampant posting a bunch of BS everywhere.
When my findings on ATIs instabilities are somehow lesser news?
Quite the contrary.

In all honesty, all I can say is that contrary to some here, I've actually purchased both recently. I shouldnt have to display some other form of pandering love for ATI when I have consistently found their products subpar to the rest of the market.

ie. NV and Hauppauge (vastly superior to ATIs tuners)

Anyway, like hobbit said I'm tired of wasting my breath with you guys so this will be my last post on this crap.

If you dont understand me and think that I'm contradicting myself then fine.
I hate to resort to such a childish ending, but like Ape constantly claims, "that says more about you than anything".
I dont give a damn what you guys think of me, because only a few of you are even in my league.. whether you know this or see it. I see a few fanboys with little history and experience in this field who enjoy dominating this forum with their numbers.. misusing a few articles to present their undereducated/inexperienced viewpoints.

How else to reveal ATI loyalists than for everyone to witness them lashing out against me for promoting the NV40?

For me, its been better shown now, than ever. Because those who put down the NV40 show alot more bias than I ever have.
Like I said, whose laid down the cash for BOTH? Exactly.
Think what you will, in the centrist in this forum. I'm completely fair to ATI, they have dug their own grave with consumers. But you'll always have arbitrary things like NV's IQ to point to I suppose.

I take time off once in a while from the forum and I wished I'd been posting here to see which of you noobs were just as hard on ATI for the Quack 3 controversy.
I can easily guess who the ATI apologists were.
As if thats ANY different than the "ancient" NV30 IQ complaints.

So we're essentially picking these things to hang on too-
NV cheats and hacks IQ even though that is completely subjective.
And even though ATI has done the same just as much (and I'd wager even more so) in the past, we forget that and call it "ancient issues".
Convienent selective memory and I realize you guys dont have much history in computer graphics other than what you've read so its understandable.
Not to mention that ATIs lackluster software support was and IS head and shoulders below NVs to this day.

As I've said in the past, take the BS I see posted here to Anandtechs forum and watch yourselves get eaten up by people just like me with the experience who dont see the world through red colored glasses. Thats where I came from in '01, and they are unbiased, the sheer numbers (150k users) bring too much to the table for it to be anything else.

'Nuff said!

Dude, it's not about liking you, and it's not about hating you. It's not about friends and it's not about enemies. You can be, do, and say whatever you want. It's not about any of those things. No one is, can, or plans to police what you say.

What it DOES come down to is, yes, you can say whatever you want. But like everything in life, there are consequences.

The consequence of claiming impartiality and constantly promoting a brand is that people get sick of it. That's it. End of story, there's nothing to debate about that.

I doubt you give a rat's ass what I think, but I'll tell you my opinion anyway; a little humility and less brand passion would get you a long way here. I'm not saying you should like Nvidia any less; I'm saying maybe you could concentrate on presenting your ideas in a less grating fashon.

Do what you want. Say what you want. I don't presume that anyone should have any control over your thoughts or posts.

But don't be surprised and hurt if you have to pay a consequence for going out of your way to infuriate people. You can't have your cake and eat it too. That's life, dude.

Subversively? NO!

Openly? YES!

Purposefully? Definitely!

You can argue that you don't agree, but like I said, prove it, and prove that what I said was misguided or false.

I said long ago that there would likely be issues with shader performance (shortly after 3Dmk03 came out) and that there would be issues with implementation of the 'fixes' in the forceware drivers, but that they had done a good job improving performance. Alot of people questioned that even though nV described the process quite clearly, and since I was talking about what I THOUGHT/FELT would be the case, there was no proof. Now whenever I have proof I post it. You may find that subversive, I simply calling it backing up your statements. Had the evidence proven otherwise I would have done what I have done before, and said Ooops!

Also don't confuse ancient past issues like the notoriousness of older ATI drivers (no longer notorious, just storied) with CURRENT issues like nV's problems in FarCry , and other CURRENT games. These issues may be resolved (most likely) wih the GF6800, but discussing those is not ancient history, unlike the driver issues you speak of.
It's funny that you see it as a slight IQ issue. Many of the issues that were in FarCry are quite glaring, not small issues like those in Halo or NFS:U

As for driver stability, the big difference is ATI releases driver fixes for stability whereas in the FX generation nV release IQ drops and compromises that made things far worse. And unlike your contentions, the don't both do it.

I'm completely fair to ATI[q/uote]

No, there's not a chance. Your statements of the GF6800 vs X800, be they braggadocio or not, show that you have not been fair. The fair thing to do, which is what many people here are doing, is to wait until all the cards make their appearance and THEN decide.

You have had your experiences, and definitely earned the right to talk about them. Where you step across the line of being fair is to extrapolate your experiences to the entire line.

It really doesn't matter your experiences or the experiences of 150K users, unless they can back it up with something more substantial.

Personally, I'm waiting for the facts. You may want to decide things before the contestants have even entered the ring, but that would be a decision based on conjecture and hope, and not fact; let alone that experience you are placing a high value on.

Personally I don't care about individuals' anecdotal 'experiences', I will rely on something more substantial, whether that's from Anand or someone posting actual screenies and benchmark links.

People spoke of how important the lack of FP32 would be for the R3XX series versus the NV3X series. But when it came down to proving their theories, they got results that ran contrary to their belief.

Proof isn't too much to ask for, is it?

Besides the fact that this is false in my case.
I explained in my last post why. I've layed down the cash, I know more about ATI products than all the local ATI loyalists (and its clear who those people are) know about NV.
So what we have is a bunch of morons running around talking about IQ problems they see posted across the web.
Not impressive.

Your "paying the price for talking" lesson is exactly what the hell I stated I was saying in my last post. I say what I want and accept the morons who come after me becuase they cant accept a different point of view.

So we all coexist around a bunch of ATI witch hunting IQ specialists and a bunch of people who CANT STAND someone who honestly believes, and more importantly KNOWS precisely WHY NV is the better choice..
and even was in the NV30 era, AFTER the 5900 was released (which didnt take long).

Seriously, some of you need to learn tolerance for others point of views as hobbit said.
Its clear that the flaws in your arguments are what I expose, hence the resulting anger.
Its not my fault many cant accept change.. I was even the one who pushed the 9800 NP weeks before the ATI team leaders took notice or had the prior experience to understand its importance in the market. It wasnt even in that horrid buyers guide until I pushed and pushed.
Thats just one example!
But history revisionism seems to be a specialty of many around here..

LOL
I know this is true about you, you've said it before.. I shouldnt have invoked your name and just nailed your followers.
Yep, followers! How many people stand up to you like I do? Exactly.

I like you and respect you, you never used to say stuff like you did in the quote above as its quite clear you dont like NV and prefer ATI.
Thats fine by me dude.

I hate the little pussys who waffle around and praise your blows to NV. Its pathetic.
But more specifically, its about the little fanboys who attack ME because I present another POV.
