    Man ,this is coming from a person that just installed their ATi card yesterday, chill out.

    I'm sorry you feel that open standards aren't worth a damn and are only good for thieves. But I feel open standards put more information in more peoples hands, the way it should be.

    I must be a rarity, an Intel CPU and a ATI video card


    but to be honest I wanted a Nvidia card

    hmm? mpchc uses dxva for all the x264 stuff i've thrown at it for testing on my 4870

    not that i use it as i prefer to decode through ffdshow for all the lovely extra options it provides

    PS, gpu acceleration in CS4 is done via OpenGL and works just fine on AMD/ATi gfx cards :)

    some of you people are throwing around extremely rare options to say the average consumer even knows about HD decoding is a long stretch. Things like SLI are flashy gimmicks and used by about 2% of users based on steam survey. I was nvidia since the ti 4XXX days, skipped the bad generations and now I'm ATI because frankly the only "pro" level task I do (music production) doesn't have an impact on gpu choice and at the time the 4800 offered some of the best performance to price and I've been more than satisfied.

    anyways my only hope is that both companies stay viable and keep itnroducing good products

    Cha-ching! This guy knows how to do it. Same reason I ended up w/ my GTX 260, got it for under $120 after cashback :rock:. I do prefer the look and feel of Nvidia's drivers/control panels too though.

    I'm still running my 8800GTX, it still beats all the latest graphics cards hands down.

    They might have double the market share, but at what cost of profit?


    Nvidia has only managed to stay competitive due to huge price cuts, something that has already pissed off it's graphics vendors.


    At the end of the day anyone who's bought a new GPU in the last year or so should be thanking ATI, as it's their pricing strategy that put an end to Nvidia's silly over inflated robbery (remember how quickly the GTX280 dropped from over £500?).

    I think it's because most consumers don't know anything about the deficits of Nvidia cards like the disaster with Nvidia's flawed mobil GPUs and the lower performance with Core i7 CPUs. They are cluelessly buying what is being advertised and rebranded by Nvidia.:rolleyes:
