Thread: Nvidia Vs. Ati

  1. #1
    Which is better overall for video cards? I know that the Radeon 9700 whips the FX, but what about drivers? ATI stops making new ones only a couple of years after, whereas nvidia has all drivers backwars compatable... . Whats better?

    This argument will rage on for ever. I view it as the Apple vs PC argument.

    It my mind one thing is king and that is compatibility. Now we can argue about that, and I would argue Nvidia are the most compatible. Some games simply wont run unless you have a nvidia card.

    Thats all I needed to know.

    I must say I've never had that problem.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I have had both and I believe that NVIDIA is a better brand.

    My ATI Radeon 7000 with 64MB of DDR is slightly better than my kid's NVIDIA 32MB

    Actually, I can't see the difference, except that I got UPDATED XP drivers for the NVIDIA, but for the ATI, couldn't find a driver specificlly for XP (looked like Win 2000 hack job). The only driver for the ATI is well over a year old.

    GeFORCE cards are based on the NVIDIA technology. I tried my buddy's computer with the GeForce card (128mb of DDR) and it was amazing!!!!!! Amazing price too over $300.00!!!!!

    I vote for NVIDIA as being better:[*]Long history of great reputation[*]Updated drivers, and easy to find[*]Appears to work better than the competitors[*]Great for XP[*]High rating everywhere[*]TV out is exceptional quality (on select cards)[*]many 3D games are based on NVIDIA, such as Unreal Tournament
