NVIDIA Issues with Call of Juarez DX10 Benchmark - tech
(hx) 07:01 AM EDT - Jun,15 2007 - Post a comment / read (2)
The Call of Juarez Benchmark released last week is one of the first few DirectX 10 benchmarks for public to try out. According to NVIDIA however, the benchmark includes new code that substantially reduces performance of NVIDIA hardware. Basically, it is claimed to be very skewed towards ATI hardware. The key issues brought up are:
- NVIDIA's DX10 hardware-based multi-sampled Anti-Aliasing resolve is disabled in the benchmark, with all NVIDIA GPUs now being forced to use software-based AA resolve similar to the ATI DX10 GPU (which lacks hardware AA resolve). This artificially deflates performance on NVDIA graphics cards and users are not getting the benefit of a key NVIDIA hardware feature.

- A hidden "ExtraQuality" parameter only accessible via a configuration file is automatically enabled when the benchmark is run on NVIDIA hardware, no matter what the setting in the configuration file. This setting has no apparent visual quality enhancement, but reduces NVIDIA GPU performance.

- Changes to shaders that deflate NVIDIA performance by approximately 10-14%, without improving visual quality on either NVIDIA or ATI GPUs.

  • EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB Superclocked - All in all, it hits a pretty reasonable price point for its performance level - It isn't as cheap as a handful of reference-clocked GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB parts, but it also weighs in as one of the cheaper factory overclocked boards. Considering the 10-12% performance advantages this SKU offers the board, it's very much worth it, particularly if you want to push your in-game settings beyond 1600x1200 with anti-aliasing enabled.

Valve survey reveals gamer hardware trends - tech
(hx) 04:20 AM EDT - Jun,05 2007 - Post a comment
As every year, Valve is running a new hardware survey of Steam users, and while the results aren't exactly scientific, a sample size of close to 360,000 does reveal some interesting trends. Steam users are practically split down the middle on the processor front, with just over 51% favoring Intel CPUs. Around 21% of your PCs are running multiple CPU cores. Nvidia has a clear lead when it comes to graphics, with the green team pushing pixels for over 55% of respondents. Those running ATI graphics drivers make up less than 36%,. Nvidia's commanding lead comes largely on the strength of its mid-range and budget GPUs, with the GeForce 6600, 7600, and FX 5200 taking the top three spots overall. In fact, 10 of the 13 most popular graphics cards in the survey bear the GeForce name. However, just over 1% (!) of respondents can run a DX10 path for graphics.

Other interesting tidbits include Realtek's dominance of the audio segment, with over 37% of respondents fearing the crab. By comparison, only 3% of respondents are running a SoundBlaster X-Fi. About 77% of you have microphones plugged in for voice communication. This will help you out a lot in TF2.Users continue to favor Windows XP over any other operating system by a huge margin, as well. Close to 93% of those surveyed have XP under the hood, with just over 5% running Vista.
