  • Where for art thou Nvidia

    Nvidia has been very quiet for about 2 1/2 month.

    Are they gearing up for something big or just laying low ?

    100.15.01 = The "still not as good as fglrx"-driver

      You should have said "still not as good as fglrx(8.41)"-driver

        My twin war horses would beg to differ but, lets see 100.15.01 vs FGLRX 8.42 before we start to argue which driver is better.

            vs.



            If you ask me, I prefer the first

              Wow, that's the first hot chinese chick I've seen in a long time.

              Now all Nvidia needs is a stunning brunette in leather and jeans posing on an old Harley.

              And a new driver-version.

                If you ask me, NVIDIA's Nalu is still better than ATI's Ruby. Though at least Ruby is an open-source girl

                  One could even draw lines from ATI's red to red being synonymous with communism which is synonymous with linux :O
                  The ATI picture before 8.41 would have meant "I look pretty but this bike doesn't have a fuel tank"

                    Shame on you

                    Did no one compare the image quality of these two? What do you think why I have chosen THIS ATI picture? To show you the improved image quality (what else did you think?) over the nVidia quality. And to demonstrate the performance, too, if you look carefully on what the ATI babe ehm the rendered Ruby sits.

                      Speaking of which, it would be nice if either or both companies released one (or all ) of their technical demos for Linux too

                        OMG, one hour ago I exactly thought about the same thing Many of these techdemos are written in OpenGL, even the newer ones, so it would be possible.

                          I know at least nVidia uses OpenGL on many of their tech demos (I'm not so sure about AMD-ATI). Most prominently I remember the demos for NV15-20 (the marching toys demo and the Werewolf demo, dunno if the Squid demo was in OpenGL) were in OpenGL. I believe the Nalu and Dawn/Dusk demos were Direct3D, though, showcasing Shader Model 3.0 and 2.0 technology (respectively), but then again, I could be wrong.

                          Edit

                          I don't know if the Humus Demos available for Linux could be considered official ATI tech demos for Linux, since he has been working for ATI (or at least I believe so) for some now... Hopefully AMD still employs him.

                          Edit 2

                          Seems he left AMD on 03-Sept... To develop games... How interesting.

                            Hahaha!! Just tried to run the Glow demo from Humus on my nVidia setup and got this:

                            Code:
                             ./Glow-32 
                            [Missing extensions]
                            The following required OpenGL extensions are supported:
                            
                            GL_ARB_vertex_program
                            GL_ARB_fragment_program
                            
                            Too bad, these required OpenGL extensions aren't supported by the graphic card and driver you're using:
                            
                            GLX_ATI_render_texture
                            
                            This application will now exit.
                            Gave a good laugh! Seems that after all, you can still do some "localized" demos in OpenGL for Linux for a particular hardware platform! Nice!

                              If I had to pick between those two, I would have to say the first also.

                              But I gotta say Luna is my pick, the demo Nvidia has got of her to showcase HDR is sweet
