"World's Fastest Video Card"

AMD is calling Nvidia out on their claim to have "The World's Fastest Video Card".

Both companies have recently released dual GPU cards that they believe to be the best, AMD's Radeon HD 6990, and Nvidia's GTX 590. AMD's Public Relations Manager, Dave Erskine, says the Radeon HD 6990 was created to be "a game changer", and Nvidia has "no substantiation based on industry-standard benchmarks, similar to what AMD did with industry benchmark 3DMark 11, the latest DirectX 11 benchmark from FutureMark.”

  2. I've always been more of a NVidia man myself, but I am definitely interested in that.

    This just means more competition and more evolved and developed graphics to come in the future. :D


    P.S. - Only difference I have ever honestly noticed between NVidia and AMD/ATI is, ATI is far better at shadow rendering while NVidia was more into Smoothing things out.

  3. Have you seen the physical cards? ATI is fawking lazy. 1 small fan. Nvidia puts fans everywhere.

    I know who I'd choose.

  7. @Alexis, i don't think that really stands for anything considering Nvidia's is known for running much hotter than ATI's

  8. i had an ATI but my new lappy has an Nvidia. I it hard to compare though as 1 is better than the other. But i like Catylyst better than NVidias one.

  9. Haha, don't you love it when two rival companies do that? Say they have the best of what ever it is that they are selling? It seems to me that phone companies in America do that daily.

  10. I like both ATi and nVidia, but for me the edge has always been to nVidia cos of their simpler and more reliably drivers.

  14. I wonder how far graphic technology would be if there wasn't fierce competition between these two groups.

  15. I love ATI/AMD
    After Nvidia screwed me over with not releasing linux drivers for Optimus notebooks & not even making it run good on Windows, I hate them...

    nice to know though :D

  22. Okay, maybe I mis-spoke. Nvidia is focused on pushing the boundaries (see Tegra 2, etc.) and if that means running hot, I'm okay with that.
    As far as ATI goes, I had one before (HD 4670 I think) and to get it to scale on screens properly was a nightmare. My Nvidia GTX570 did it straight off the bat, I didn't actually have to do anything.

  28. In a year we will have something new. I usualy don't buy new technologies, because they tend to be overpriced.
