Again, your link is meaningless. Why? Because the article only highlights advantages of 3.0 over 2.0. It says nothing about their value, or relation to the total feature set.
You seem to have learned too much hype.

How about comparing these?

You sure seem to know your hard and software, buddy
(sarcasm? yes.)

Do it like Don Reba does. Show us screenshots with the difference between shaders 2.0 and 3.0.

Not 1.x and 2.0, or 1.x and 3.0, because we already know that there's a huge difference between those, as Don pointed out.


PS. You're really way too full of yourself.

two things,

1. if teh game uses dx 9, isnt the nvidia fx series crapped out? and isnt nvidia worse at dx where ati is worse at open gl

2. ati has shader 2.0b, which is 3.0 but with better performance(3.0 quality with 2.0 speed)

1.Nvidia FX is a bit iffy, but the 6. series if superb. And you're getting DX mixed up with Direct 3d. And both do good, the performance differences are minimal

2. Umm, 3.0 is better then 2....i'd rather have a card that can do 3 then one that does 2, but faster.

I would make the opposite choice.

I think the rivalery between ATI and NVIDIA, as well as between Intel and AMD is not achieving many positives in the game industry. For one, hardware prices are not really dropping with the increased competition and two if you buy a game optimised for one chipset, often you will see performance drops on the rival one, unless you are running top end gear.

I noticed this with one release lately. No names but it was optimised for NVIDIA and my ATI vid card ran the game pretty crap considering my card was way above game spec. My mate has the same game with an NVIDIA card, lower system spec and his runs perfectly. No amount of tweaking could fix the performance issue.

Well, the official website says the technical partner is Nvidia Athlon. So you can expect the final spec to go according to Nvidia and Athlon hardware.

just tell me, will it be like doom3, where half the people will get shafted performance wise, or will it be liek hl, where even legacy stuff runs nicely

I plan on getting a nVidia 6600 GT in the near future... Would that be enough to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. on 60 fps with the resolution of 1024 x 768?

You'll see once the game tests come out. Don't ask such questions until then please.
