not even the 8800GT vs 3870?...
In relation to games, thats just a fancy way of saying its adding static lighting
Another video card. Hey, first non rebrand card in a while. Right?
Can you PM screenies? From what I'm hearing, it's not a bug. When shining a flashlight on an object with a shadow from another lightsource, the old shadow won't magically disappear. Take two flashlights and some object. A ball or a cup or some other thing. Have one flashlight laying and pointing at the object and play with the other flashlight. No matter where you put it, there will always be two shadows as there are two light sources.
Sorry. I'm off topic.
Maybe to someone with no knowledge, but no, it's not even remotedly related. In fact where most noticeable is AO is in objects and models, moving objects and models. It makes a huge difference in characters. Without it they look like flat 2D magazine clipping glued there. And almost every object in the ground, including character's feet, look as if they were hovering. Normal shadows don't fix that but AO does, because it adds a subtle shadow accent all around the object like it happens in real life and not jst in light's opposite direction.
Nope, the 8800GT was more expensive on it's release one week after the 3870.
nVidia pwnd ATI
Sniff Sniff, do I catch "odour of fanboy"
If thats the case, prove it. Upload a vid somewhere of this magical nvidia effect in action. From what I have seen, it very much just adds shadows to corners of things which means theres nothing dynamic about this effect at all.
Allow me to nullify that thunder further Check out the Crysis DX10 V.High results, a Dual GPU solution, AKA GTX275, only just outpaces the single GPU solution, AKA HD4890
"Ready for Windows 7"
Is it DX11 compliant?
No. It just has drivers already.
From what you have interpreted you mean. What you have seen is AO which has nothing to do with static shadowing. I have nothing to prove BTW, it's not my job. Also I already said I don't have Vista. Here's some videos you could have found yourself anyway:
GTX275 is single GPU, the 295 isnt on that chart at all. pretty even imo.
Lol, nice to select one benchmark from probably 30 that say the opposite..... but thats OK, if it's true it cant be fanboism And you do mean 295 right?
That sounds like the same crack MS ended up in with their "Ready for Vista" laptops and desktops form OEM partners. If nvidia uses the "Ready for Windows 7" as a form of advertisement and does not have a DX11 compatable card they are asking for a lawsuit. Unless they plan on going the software compliant route......
with this price , thanx im go for 4890
