Oh, yeah, the GeForce4's have really met their limit. I mean shit, I can't even find
games that use the full potential of the current GeForce 4 cards. The last thing I
am concerned about is what the next new technology is. It won't be utilized fully
by game developers for another 2 years anyway.
I will stick to my, as Squirrel put it "chip that is beginning to reach its limitations".

Krogue...Try the benchmark from my post today. The Codecreature benchmark
will make your Geforce 4 cry like a Biaaaeeech.

That is in reference to the fact that I have not heard any new developements on
the NVidia. Hey, maybe I will support NVidia more if I can get that 1.4 from Kagato
*grin*, don't make me beg...:P

There's been talk of Nvidia's next chip - but no official notes or anything thanks to
the NDAs. I think ATi will have the same issues though - bandwidth limitations on
the AGP (8X is coming baby!) and base CPU speed. While the card itself is a
processor in it's own right (GPU), it is still reliant upon the CPU, and the faster
CPU you can throw at it, all the better it performs.

Waiting for the NV50 personally. upgrading from GF3 to 4 is a waste of
money... the only thing that's new is... umm... performance :P And when your
machine already runs the newest at 100+ frames with everything maxed, that's
kinda silly :)
Btw, download.com no longer hosts the codecreatures benchmark - anyone
seen it hosted elsewhere?

You can get it from MajorGeeks:
