The Inquirer, eh?

Does the new tweak also stop chaos clouds? This is an Off-Topic thread.

That might explain something. Lemme see... no... nope, doesn't explain anything at all.

This really belongs in OT.

It is tech, tech articles and such have been going here for quite some time. Tech Talk >> Tech Articles.

I'm kinda surprised ATI managed to out-do Nvidia in OpenGL. I heard that patch was coming out, but I figured Nvidia would still be able to hold its own.

is it really Tech? The wording is the same as that of a Tabloid, and the website is "The Inquirer." Last news source I recall having the name "Enquirer" was a tabloid.

I think it's a hoax masquerading as tech news.

Having seen other sources(couldn't read the article earlier), I rescind my previous comments.

Can't wait for the Catalyst 5.11 drivers Very Happy

Actually, it makes a lot of since to get a better boost out of more taxing calculations, as it's those same calculations that Ati's engineers found a shortcut to. The card's just doing more of the same, and saving more time on the same.

Yeah, the Inquirer is a lot different from the Enquirer. The Inquirer, from what I've seen, is all about the latest on tech, and tends to post a lot of "inside scoops" or whatever. It seems they tend to get a lot of information before anybody else. That is helped in large part by the fact that they're more willing to post rumours, but the rumours they post tend to be rather accurate.

But then again, I usually only read articles from that site that are posted by my usual news site, so it automatically goes through another sanity check filter before I see anything from them. Probably makes them seem a lot more accurate. Smile

Because LoneWolf apparently hasn't seen the previous links to the Inquirer. I know I was rather confused the first time I saw a link to that site on my otherwise trustworthy news page.

I'm not very happy with the latest catalyst drivers because I can't find a modded inf that will allow me to overclock the card from the driver options menu. If someone could link me, I'd be grateful.

I have the latest modded drivers for Nvidia though.

I was looking at the benches and the performance of the patch is not so great compared to nvidia cards, more or less they're now "equal", but the thing that makes me stay away from ATI is their poor, POOOOOOORRRR (may i emfasice more? xD) Linux drivers; even the guys from the Xorg foundation have a faster driver than ATI!!!!

the last time I OCed my video card, it made one of my favorite games(Gunbound, for those interested) not work. Subsiquently, it caused artificing in the reflection maps in OMF.

Pretty effect, really, but quite undesired.

I've been hearing that it may be a hack that ends up raising OGL AA performance... not sure, though. And I don't have an ATI card to test on anymore...
