    AMD's DirectX 11 Lead is 'Insignificant,' NVIDIA Says

    No, AMD's tessellation extension to OpenGL (which only works with r6x0/r7x0) is not compatible with D3D 11's tessellation setup. It's a bit ridiculous to claim that OpenGL has supported tessellation for a few years when in reality it works only with select cards from a single IHV. Extensions...

    Ok this needs to stop. Can you make one post without an inaccuracy?

    AMD's DirectX 11 Lead is 'Insignificant,' NVIDIA Says

    Your last two posts have too many factual errors to count, but these take the cake (The tessellation hardware on r6x0/r7x0 is less programmable than the tessellation defined in the D3D 11 specification. In addition, obviously Nvidia does not have an OpenGL extension for tessellation). That...

    PhysX on nVidia cards won't work if an ATI card is used

    I just want to point out this used to function perfectly (AMD card + dedicated NV card for physics). There is no technical reason why this can't work (immediately). As for why AMD chooses not to support PhysX, I think most of you are missing the point. It's not whether or not AMD can...

    Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD HDMI 1.3a Sound Card

    Yeah (assuming you have Vista/7) can you goto the properties panel for HDMI (under playback devices), then the advanced tab, then take a screen shot of all the formats the card supports?

    Auzentech Prelude ASIO in Foobar2000 (SPDIF). Help Please.

    Well asio4all just uses Kernel Streaming or WaveRT; it's not really ASIO. And yes, I can get ASIO working fine with my prelude on both analog and digital. I don't get "I can't map the left and right speakers". What exactly doesn't work? Does ASIO work only over analog or neither? You have...

    If you are running vista, have you tried setting the S/PDIF as the default device?

    ATI Stream Computing: From the Desktop to the Datacenter

    [edit] I'd like to make clear that I'm assuming OpenCL will replace Brook+, that may not be the case though.

    ATI Stream Computing: From the Desktop to the Datacenter

    AMD hasn't used CTM in awhile (since R580 days). They currently use CAL (which is like CTM, but slightly better) and Brook+. Brook+ will eventually be replaced by OpenCL and DirectX's compute shader after they are finally released. "Stream" is just a naming scheme, nothing new. But it...

    PC game Digital Surround via Prelude digital output?

    As stated above, there will always be latency added, but it was not noticeable when I used it.

    PC game Digital Surround via Prelude digital output?

    The Prelude will convert any 5.1 source from your PC to 5.1 Dolby Digital (vista or xp) or 5.1 DTS (vista only), including games.

    BlackBerry Storm's "clickable" touch screen?

    I've read Engadget's Storm review, the browser still sucks. And this may come to a surprise to you, some of us live in rural areas that don't have 3G coverage. No WiFi is a big problem.

    BlackBerry Storm's "clickable" touch screen?

    Yeah that and BB's lacking web browser make this phone unattractive to me.

    It does if you live in areas without 3G.

    how does ASUS Xonar DX PCI Express matchup against Xfi cards?

    Mine was plagued with driver issues, but I seem to be in the minority on that one (to be fair they've fixed some of the bugs since I returned mine).

    5.1 EAX through digital + vista?

    Bioshock uses EAX (as I believe all Unreal 3 based games). And we can go back and forth citing examples from reviews, but it's very clear that the GX does not do a "great job" as you put it. Better than nothing though.

    5.1 EAX through digital + vista?

    lol they disabled EAX in Bioshock and used stereo in Call of Duty. Yeah I'm not surprised they didn't notice a difference.

    5.1 EAX through digital + vista?

    Offer up proof to the contrary then. If it doesn't function at all in one game, I'm doubting it functions at all in any game. That is wrong. It supports everything a normal X-Fi supports.

    Poll: Micro stutter

    Same reason why SFR and SuperTiling are hardly used now, each card would have to render a lot of the same data (certain geometry data, certain vertex data, etc) making things extremely redundant (and hampering performance) whereas back in the 3dfx days you didn't have this problem (thus AFR...

    Could you give a general outlook, have the drivers/bios changed the situation much?
