I think I posted this above: DX10.1 If this is implemented in SC2, the performance difference will be noticeable.

Quite frankly GPU manufacturers shouldn't be allowed to sponsor games a la TWIMTBP simply so that we don't get this bull where one company nerfs the game for the other. I think the way it is now hurts competition.

I was responding to darkcloud who seems to think that ATI just wants to slap their name on blizzard games

Well that is part of the reason they're doing it.

I don't think that's necessarily true. How many people outside of what could be considered "computer enthusiasts" actually know that Nvidia helped to optimize the code? I would guess there would be very little and so to them it's really just an advertisement. I think we're talking about people that are just really into the game and don't really care, follow, or know a lot about pc hardware. And for these people, just seeing that logo in their favorite brand of games is going to influence their purchasing decisions. I don't think it's really the same situation with EA and TWIMTBP because Blizzard probably has a more dedicated base just following their company than any other video game developer.

I don't see a problem with Nvidia or ATI optimizing code for a game. Who knows, perhaps the game would perform worse on all hardware without the optimization. A performance gain is a performance gain.
