Nice article, it's just unfortunate you don't have a 2900XT or any HD gen ATi card to compare to the 8xxx's on hand.

Nice article. It's a shame there aren't any major visual enhancements with DirectX10.

Interesting, I'm about to get the Asus EN8800 GTS 320mb so High settings, perhaps with a few sliders down to medium should play pretty nice. I don't see a difference between very high and high, the difference between high and medium isn't very noticeable either, so that's nice. The difference between DX10 and DX9 is hardly noticeable too, though the lighting does look a bit better on DX10, but that was to be expected.

If by better lighting you mean brighter lighting, then sure.

Would have been nice to see a 2900XT and 8800GTX on the benchmarks, especially with all the performance speculation at the minute....

Thanks for the comments guys.

Ya, sorry there was no inclusion of a high-high end card in the mix. Our 2900XT is out at the moment, and during my writing of this article, our 8800GTX had a very, very, sad and expensive premature ending of its life recently. But, hey, we're always getting new cards, so, in the future they'll most definitely be making reappearances...

I would've liked to see how the 8800 gtx did as well.

Did the GTX burn up or something?

Ya, the GTX died -- or, was killed, depending on you ask.

You screwed up the most important part of the Comparison....
THE SCREENSHOTS! every screen was badly pixelated which ruined pretty much the whole article. great work : /

Huh? It's BARELY noticeable, and it always happens when converting from the format (was it Targa?) that the game takes screenshots with to Jpeg.

why didnt they just use FRAPs and convert BMP to JPG in Photoshop. with the Progressive option on and Quality set to 95% the screens would've looked great. i don't mean to offend or insult anyone but this is a gfx Quality comparison, Screenshots should be of utmost importance.

Hey evox

No need to worry about causing offense. Forums are for talking ,after all; and I'm relatively newish to this stuff, so any comments are appreciated.

However, what you just said is almost exactly what I did. I took the screenies with FRAPS, and converted to JPG in Photoshop. I used, I think, '11' level of quality, or possibly the max.

Trust me, the jpg's are identical to the bmp's taken from FRAPs. If you don't believe me, I can mail you the jpg and bmps so you can see for yourself.

Furthermore, compare these shots done by Elite Bastards (the only other site I'm aware of that did a similar article). The shots seem to be of the same quality to me:
