Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Beta Performance - tech
(hx) 07:32 PM EDT - Jun,25 2007 - Post a comment
The chaps over at AMDZone have tested the Enemy Territory Quake Wars beta with GeForce 8800GTX, GeForce 8800GTS 640MB, GeForce 8800GTS 320MB, GeForce 8600GTS, GeForce 7900GTX, GeForce 7900GT and GeForce 7600GT  at 1280X864, and 1600X1200:
Clearly from our initial numbers ETQW loves the GeForce 8 cards particularly if you have an 8800 of any type. They can handle full on eye candy and maintain frame rates much higher than their GeForce 7 counterparts. Sure they are DX10 cards, but in this DX9 game they shine. Now results may vary, and in fire fights expect the performance to drop as more units are rendered. However from play testing experience there is a marked advantage to using an 8800 card versus a 7900 that you certainly notice as we experienced during several hours of play.

As for the gameplay itself clearing there needs to be some balancing and tweaking done. Head to head with Battlefield 2142 it does not yet stand up. Vehicles behave too much like toys. The tank is far to easy to destroy. If you are trying to shoot a Strogg hovering with the pack in the sky good luck. There is a lot of potential of course, and with Team Fortress 2 not out till October we hope that we can have a nice alternative squad based shooter to Battlefield this Summer.

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.

  • Intel Core 2 Duo Price Drop In September - According to Intel partners, price reduction for Core 2 Duo processors is planned in September. Its value will be from 24% to 32%.

  • Analysts Continue to Expect AMD to Delay Quad-Core Processor - AMD was quick to deny such a possibility, however, many now expect AMD's new chips to become massively available only in Q4 2007.
  • Radeon HD 2900 XT vs. 320MB 8800 GTS - Armed with new drivers, HardOCP pit the Radeon HD 2900 XT against the BFGTech GF 8800 GTS, in both the 320MB and 640MB flavors, with interesting results: "we did not see any magic happen when it comes to real world gaming experiences at resolutions at and above 1600x1200. The ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT is not even a match for even the much less expensive and much less power hungry 320 MB GeForce 8800 GTS. " Weird benchmarks, why they tested only 1600x1200 resolution? Heh.
  • Apple Gaming Follow-up - EA's games will run on Macs thanks to Cider from TransGaming, who also supply software to allow Linux users to run Windows games.

  • 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.
