    It's ironic, though, how we combat fascism with fascism, though. Just an observation.

    thats it! modern german BRD fight fascism by the same tools than the naszis do.
    no differend just another name.

    on nvidia they really should stop this nazi/Fascism "CUDA/PhysX/anti-opensource"

    "CUDA/PhysX/anti-opensource" is the same as Nazis stoping Jews doing business

    if Nvidia wins with that ""CUDA/PhysX/anti-opensource"" Nvidia just pull (intel/AMD/VIA) out of business like the same as the Jews goes out of business in the Nazi empire.

    CUDA and PhysX are really really bad! just like Nazi Fascism

    • so this is 2010's equivalent of last year's GT210 & GT220 right?

        This literally caused me to ROFLMAO. I totally agree though, Nvidia is evil, no matter how good their drivers are.

          • Not greatly familiar with NVidia cards so I am not real sure about what you are getting at but.............

            I have a Gigabyte GTX 260SOC and Gigabyte GTX 460, the latter is as slow as a wet week compared to the 260SOC both on Linux and WindowsXP. Frames rates for the 460 are only 60% of 260SOC. Incidently I have a Radeon 4870 the GTX260SOC and this perform nearly the same.

            • the 200 series are discussed here...
              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_200_Series

              Last year the GT 210/220 were the best solution overall in linux for those whom want well-rounded VA using VDPAU.

              as Intel's IGP was still far from sufficient.
              I suspect that may still be the case (albeit better), due to software support, haven't looked closely yet.

              They were also just okay for some 3d acceleration, certainly better than IGP.
              And most importantly were very low power...

              I'm wandering what this years equivalents are called from the new 400 series* family, or are they not released yet?

                Nvidia user here. What's said and what's reality are often mutually exclusive. I come to phoronix because they do decent investigative journalism and technical comparisons which almost no other manages to do as consistently. I also enjoy watching the ATI fan crowd try and shit on NV at every turn. It's been that way since 2002 and it'll stay that way forever. ATI drivers are shit and everyone knows this to be true. ATI is fine and often more power efficient but they still can't write a stable driver for any OS and they probably never will.

                  Of course they are, they supply working drivers. So evil. ATI are doing you all such a good favour with shitty closed and open source drivers. Must feel good donating to the Cult of ATI.

                      ATI are Windows supporters so I still don't understand that allegiance.

                      Also, the NvNews forum has at least two Linux sections and ATI has NO dedicated or specific forum for Linux users. NONE. ZIP. How does ATI profess to support Linux and not have a forum with 'Linux' as a sub-forum anywhere. The 'ATI/AMD' devs or video driver experts here are specific to the open drivers although comment on binary as well but it's only because this seems to be the only forum for discussion of any support.

                      But, AMD/ATI specific forums have no linux category, section or sub-forum of any kind relating to Linux.
