The rage is on: ati radeon vs. NVIDIA geforce. The market is abuzz with deciding on the winner but the result is yet to be out! From the very first time of graphics invention, 3D cards were popular, especially those NVIDIA’s produced; some of them being RIVA 128 and TNT2. These have taken the world by storm. NVIDIA presented the up-to-the-minute Graphics Processing Unit. It coincided with the mighty GeForce 256 in the same year 1999. The other speciality included it being the very first graphics chip which came with hardware transformation and intense lighting capabilities. Other than that, it was relatively faster. NVIDIA driver update included.
ATI on the other hand responded back in the year 2000 and introduced the Radeon made graphics card. Since that, many GeForce and other Radeon GPUs has been trying to outwit in the very interesting competition of graphics pre-eminence said by graphics cards advisor. NVIDIA has been believed to have had an early advantage, what with the GeForce, later GeForce 2, and subsequent GeForce 3 and last but not the least GeForce 4 amazing series. These series had a debatably superior edge over ATI’s Radeon series. These are indeed incredibly popular series. The ati radeon vs. NVIDIA geforce debate was on!
The year 2002 however saw the ATI turning the tables in their favour, with the introduction of the breath-taking Radeon model 9700 Pro. Being installed with the GPU with amazing programming shaders, the particular Pro was particularly stronger than any of the earlier graphics chips. And it was only in early 2003 that NVIDIA responded with the star-crossed GeForce model called 5800 Ultra. It was armed with a GPU that was not up to the mark.
So the ati radeon vs. NVIDIA geforce debate is still on. There have been numerous NVIDIA driver update that have the audience hooked on. Nothing much is however being said about the ati radeon drivers. NVIDIA has also very recently released a much more down sided adaptation of the Fermi chip. It’s in the new GeForce GTX 465 and is on sale now.
