Some good conclusions can be drawn from Tom's Hardware DX10 Shootout.
Thanks for the new details!
Am I the only one that sees the computer differences here? The ATI is a Dual quad core with 4 gig of ram and the nvidia is a dual core with 2 gig of ram.
How can this possibly determine ATI has better performance? Why not just swap the cards and use the same computer to get a legit test?
No chance you guys have a 30" LCD to test at 2560x1600 for me?
Can you play Quake Wars for Linux on ranked (most) multiplayer servers? Ie, it comes with Punkbuster for Linux and this works OK?
I'm surprised how you guys managed to get the new driver to work out of the box... The forum is flooding with threads about issues of 8.42.3
In general I would personally recommend waiting the two or so days until the drivers are available in the distributions rep, then you are at least sure that the install/build part does work as expected.

glxgears,google earth show instead of 3D black window so no 3D for me ....

So if this article is genuine how did Phonorix install and test x1950 Pro?
