- nForce3 250Gb: Faster with GeForce FX?

Geoff over at The Tech Report has posted an interesting article which looks at the performance of a GeForce FX 5950 Ultra on the new nForce3 250 chipset. nVidia apparently made the effort to optimize their drivers so its cards work faster when coupled with the new nForce3 250 chipset. Questionable or legitimate move? You decide!



WHEN NVIDIA briefed me on the nForce3 250Gb, the company claimed the chipset would perform better with GeForce FX graphics. The insinuation was not that the GeForce FX was necessarily faster than its graphics competition, but that NVIDIA had specifically optimized nForce3 and GeForce FX ForceWare drivers to work better together than apart. NVIDIA was quick to reassure me that they hadn't done anything to make competing graphics cards run slower on nForce3. They'd simply taken advantage of an opportunity to make their graphics cards run faster.
