My card history goes: GeForce2 GTX, ATI 9700 Pro, GeForce 6800 GT.
You may think that it is time for another ATI, but no, not only no, hell no!
ATI is still short-sighted when it comes to real 3D. nVidia has been
supplying FREE 3D stereo drivers for its CONSUMER cards, whereas ATI simply
refuses to do so. Unless ATI starts releasing 3D Stereo drivers for its
consumer cards as descent as nVidia's, my next card will be an nVidia once
I know that Stereo-3D is not much of a concern for many users, but every
single person that I showed the 3D-Stereo projection system said "wow!" so
Moreover, market is continously developing for consumer stereoscopic
displays, let them be lenticular LCDs or HMDs. The R&D on a new stereoscopic
TV broadcasting standard is another indication that people are interested in
Performance alone is not a sole reason to get a card. Features are as much
important, if not more so at least in some cases.
