Have you ever heard of GDDR5? It's twice the speed of GDDR3/4. NVIdia can't even get past GDDR3 because they haven't put any money into R&D for it.

DX10.1 would have been needed if Nvidia didn't suck up to have the DX10 specs lowered.

So go and preach about how it isn't need all you want, because you are right it isn't needed. But only because Nvidia are somehow convincing game developers not to incorporate it.

you have the same argument as every other crysis hater out there.. that HL2 looks "just as good" but uses less demanding hardware. HL2 is a 4 year old game. the graphics aren't nearly as good as what crysis can do when maxed out. crysis on low at 1280x1024 looks the same as HL2 maxed out. the two engines can't be compared!

Mby nVidia doesn't want to switch right now? GTX 280 will have the highest memory bandwidth. Different approaches where no one is better than other.

We will soon find out.

You're blind, right? Maybe if you play crysis on low settings at a small resolution, and HL2 on high settings at a high resolution--but otherwise, you're smoking crack.

Okay, here's the deal. I'll admit to jumping on the "OMG Crysis was so poorly coded" bandwagon when it initially came out, but to be honest, I can't say that and no one else can unless they were one of the programmers. And likely that's not even the case either. What probably happened is the programmers wrote the code to take advantage of future hardware as opposed to current-at-the-time hardware (which may or may not have worked out well for them...).

But one thing is for certain--HL2 and Crysis are not at all in the same league of graphics quality, physics, or appearance. Not by a long shot, even on my crappy x1950pro at medium quality settings...

That being said, crysis is apparently happy with full-settings at 19x10--so will it still be considered "poorly coded" despite the fact that there is a card solution that can max it out at 19x10? I mean, do people with FX5500's ***** about Call of Duty 2 being poorly coded just 'cause they can't max it out on their cards? It just requires a more expensive/higher-end graphics card to be played the way it was meant to be... I'll end my venting now...

Yes thats right, its a game not a benchmark!
Due to the fact its engine was not game optimised and is infact an engine for 3d moddeling.

The GDDR5 approach is better. I'm sorry.

there are no arguments for a 512bit bus. none at all, so don't even try man.

512bit busses make the core run hotter, they make the PCB more complex, and they make the card more expensive overall. there are NO saving graces of it.

ATI already figured this out with the 2900 series. too bad nvidia didn't learn from it.
