    I remember Radeon's Ark ... that was a nice one, although I'm sure these are hell of a lot better. :p
    Too bad they won't work on an M7

    ATI Demos

    ATI Demos won't run on NVidia cards? Have you tried? I'm curious to know if ATI did the same thing that NVidia tried to do to its competitors. I have an ATI so I wouldn't know.

    AFAIk it would be pretty daft running them on nvidia hardware... basically because ati is running everything @ fp24 precision... ALL the time

    the dawn demo and other nvidia demo's appear to all be fp16 hence faster...

    in order for nvidia to run the demo on their hardware.. I am supposing the wrapper has to take into account the precision and therefore perhaps increase it to fp32 in order to play it... which would make the speed extremely slow...

    that being said a wrapper may also dumb it down to fp16 :)

    who knows... we'll have to wait and see what happens...

    yea.. i mean.. if you start an ATI Demo and you had an Nvidia card.. wouldnt it still think you had an ATI card installed? Unless it looks for an ATI Code? It may run slow as Sazar may of spotted out because of the fp being higher than the Nvidia.. but it must be worth a go surely?

    Give it a go ste

    Alex :cool:

    Ive Tried the 9700 Pro Bacteria ScreenSaver it says that i dont have an ATi Card which is True and then it just Crashes, and remember alex it did the Same when i Tried the Pixie Demo on my old Geforce 3 and it said i dont have an Fx Series Card.
    But Maybe they Might Work on My Fx Series Card Now?

    maybe?... give it a go

    Maybe ATI Demos does search for a perticular ATI Serial code or something relating to that :confused:
