id Software's Official DOOM3 Benchmarks

@ 2004/07/22
The folks at id Software have been kind enough to share with us benchmarks from the upcoming DOOM 3. We look at NVIDIA's and ATI's finest in a head to head comparison.

cancelled order & got pre-ordered at Proxis.be for €54
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/27
"Order is temporarily on hold for authorization. We may contact you for further information."

I have no problem with that, I'm 100% legit, maybe they don't get that many international orders and they want to verify some things

as long as I get the game on time.. I don't care
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/27
no... it is on hold awaiting creditcard verification...
that's sth totally different.

they say : we may require more info from you.
for 6 days.
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/27
it's quite normal that it IS on hold.. the game isn't released yet?
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/27
JMKe, are you also staying ON HOLD at ebgames?
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/27
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/26
that's a nice combo
Comment from RichBa5tard @ 2004/07/26
Kmelectronic offers a 6800GT bundled with Doom 3 for 425 euro... another interesting buy.
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/26
we'll your at it, get a gig for me too
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/26
In Ultra quality, we load each texture; diffuse, specular, normal map at full resolution with no compression. In a typical DOOM 3 level, this can hover around a whopping 500MB of texture data. This will run on current hardware but obviously we cannot fit 500MB of texture data onto a 256MB card and the amount of texture data referenced in a give scene per frame ( 60 times a second ) can easily be 50MB+. This can cause some choppiness as a lot of memory bandwidth is being consumed. It does however look fantastic :-) and it is certainly playable on high end systems but due to the hitching that can occur we chose to require a 512MB Video card before setting this automatically.


PLAYABLE ON HIGH END SYSTEMS...
hopefully a 3 ghz a64 fx with a pelt cooled voltmodded x800xt-pe and a raptor and 1 gig of ram will classify as high end, maybe I'd better get another gig of ram

But normally you pay in advance, what happened with your money?

Did you not receive it because it did not arrive as a fault of the Belgian Postal Service? In the past I had the experience that 2 of my packages never arrived (things not ordered from proxis), only reason can be that the stuff must have been stolen by the Postal Service. A few month's ago they arrested an employee that had stolen an enormous amount of cd's.

The firm from which I purchased always sends a new package though.

depends; sometimes it slips through, sometimes it doesn't.

ordering product A, receiving product B. resending the product which was delivered by error, and never getting refunded, or getting the correct product.
Ordering product A, and having to wait 6+ months. Ordering several books and only receiving halve, and having paid for all of them... etc etc

have 10x better experience with Amazon.com in the US, then with Proxis here in BE :/

so €65 for Game + Collector's item is pretty swell, and with any luck it'll be here before the game arrives in Belgium
Could you give me more info about your experiences...

it's nice to see an underdog win, but this time around nVidia has the best buy with the 6800GT!
Comment from Sidney @ 2004/07/22
It's like AMD and Intel;

I put my money on AMD.

ATI and Nvidia;

I put my money on ATI.

Been wrong before.

Chart URL don't work; What is says is out look for ATI is much better than Nvidia.
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/22
see performance of 6800 with FC 1.2 to see less whoopass
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/22
I just don't get it...how do you compare the whoopass the radeons get here to this...



on farcry engine at 1600*1200 and extreme quality we get whoopass of 6800 ultra ...
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/22
probably
I love your optimism, you made my afternoon a bit brighter



= playable with nice settings, on our oced cpu's 1280*1024 hi quality 4*aa 8*af will be playable. GREAT!
Comment from jmke @ 2004/07/22
until the next ATI catalyst release
Comment from calantak @ 2004/07/22
oeps.
it looks as if the x800xt is grinded in the dust by the 6800 ultra...


aaah who cares.
where the hell can you get an ultra in europe...
nowhere
