[INQ] Blizzard snubs Nvidia with Diablo 3 - Page 3

post #21 of 72
I love diablo games but come on ... how much gpu power do you think it will really need. And choosing havok over physx, I really don't care because I don't understand how the game even needs physics in it at all. Especially gpu powered physics.

Yes I have seen the gameplay trailer before anybody says that. I just don't see it being a game that needs a crapload of gpu power or physics at all.

Edit: Somebody will crack havok to work on nvidia cards anyways just like they cracked physx for ati. So even if the game does need it I'm not worrying about that.

As far as I know, 10.1 just gives developers more options. The main thing I hear was 10.1 handles AA differently and much more efficiently.

Optimization. Aside from making programmer's lives easier it allows for 1 less pass during rendering, which has a profound impact on performance. If Crysis was DX10.1 and worked decently with ATI cards we could easily see a single 4870 smoking a single GTX 280. But nVidia doesn't like that, which is why they paid Crytek to not only neglect DX10.1, but to basically remove CF support. If you look at the benchmarks ATI cards in CF have little to no effect in Crysis compared to the single cards, whereas SLI is working, you can be sure that nVidia had a hand in this.


I hope more developers will stand up to nVidia, and hopefully will opt out of TWIMTBP when their contract is up.

Havok doesn't need to be cracked, it works on any card.

Half-life 2 and oblivion use Havok, to name some large titles.

My guild has been debating what the animation was going to be (from WoW website). I gotta be honest, I was hoping for an announcement for the release of WotLK.

No problem, I'll be playing Diablo 3 anyway!

I honestly don't care how the graphics are optimized, and how they deal with Nvidia or ATI. I just want the damn thing released (cue waiting for 2 more years and hating life).

Nope, it is backwards compatible. That is why both ATI/Nvidia cards could play Assassins Creed.

It would just mean that the ATI cards would render more efficiently than the Nvidia cards. This would effectively give them an edge, so to say.
