    Bit tech should put together an all time/current top ten best game music from last nijna to GTA IV.

    No old school demos as they would just fill the whole chart like the sims :D


    Game music rules.

    it is Field Programmable Gate Array. they are the best pieces of hardware known to man. hope graphics chips comes with those in the future. (but then, why would we buy from nVidia/ATI when Xilinx/Altera have been making great FPGA for years)

    on the point of Lucid Hydra. it is completely possible for 100% performance scaling. let's talk numbers:
    gtx280 vs 8800GTX, about 70% faster.
    240 vs 128 shaders, 87% more
    1296 vs 1350 shader clock speed, a little bit slower per clock
    comparing the shader numbers along shows should be about 70% speed difference. but there's also ROP, texture fillrate and other stuff needs considering, so real world difference varies.

    on the point about pairing different cards, not sure about cross brand. but for same-brand cards, the shader architecture should be exactly the same, 210 uses the same shader pipeline as 280, just different amount of it.
    on the same principle, it can be said that as long as 2 different cards work together, then all others should do the same.
    also, due to it's a hardware implementation, it is possible to be operating system independent. this is also why i kept wanting BIOS based fan controller, it is a hardware based implementation, so not OS dependent.

    ha the music at the start made me laugh, not cos it was bad but because the bad timing the first guy started talking and then quickly faded it out, you'll never make a DJ ;)
