The debate wasn't one company better than another. The debate is, the probability of a brand new game that just came out yesterday, no new drivers, is most likely going to have less issues with Nvidia when running on ultra settings than with ATI's equiv. This will not be the case forever just in the foreseeable future
and personally I think Nvidia is a joke in the lower to mid sector as ATI/AMD solution is so much better and cheaper.
But for brute power, the cutting edge, I am going for Nvidia based on the market trend I have seen the last 4 years.
and by cutting edge, ATI gets out more stuff faster because of their own tick-tock, but Nvidia's new arch's are usually super impressive and become industry standard for years to come, look at the 8800GT.
And yes I remember the ATI Radeon 9 series, it was epic, but that was way before AMD was involved with ATI.Edited by dlee7283 - 5/9/12 at 11:23pm
