    I was just watching CNN, they were at the game convention in LA. They gave Doom III 2 thumbs up but said it's not going to be released until next year.

    Here's an article from SpyGame.com Doom III

    I have heard that it was rinning on a 2.2 with the new Ati card, ,but also heard that they are hoping that the geforce2 will suffice!

    yep doom3 at e3 was running on ati's upcoming r300.

    John Carmack said

    Doom III is very much hardware driven, and one of the controversies of this year’s E3 was that the game was demonstrated on the latest ATI graphics card rather than a card from NVidia.
    “NVidia has been stellar in terms of driver quality and support and doing all of the things right,” says Carmack, who has been an outspoken evangelist for NVidia’s GeForce technology. “For the past few years, they have been able to consistently outplay ATI on every front. The problem is that they are about one-half step out of synch with the hardware generation because they did Xbox instead of focusing everything on their next board. So they are a little bit behind ATI.”
    “I told everyone that I was going to demonstrate Doom III on the best hardware, and there has been no collusion or kickbacks or anything like that going on. Our objective is the technical merit.”
    “The new ATI card was clearly superior. I don’t want to ding NVidia for anything because NVidia has done everything they possibly could; but in every test we ran, ATI was faster.”

    To end the debate of what John Carmack was comparing the R300 to Chalnoth over at nV News sent out an email asking him and got this response:


    It [The ATI card used] was compared against a very high speed GF4. It shouldn't be surprising that a next-generation card is faster than a current generation card. What will be very interesting is comparing the next gen cards (and the supporting drivers) from both vendors head to head when they are both in production.
    Everyone working on DOOM still uses GF4-Ti cards at the moment, and if someone needs to buy a new video card today, that is what I tell them to get.

    I was watching TechTV the other day and they where talking about DOOM III. They said that the Geforce3 could only handle 1/2 of the min requirements for the game !!!!!

    Your going to need a killer card to play this game !!!!

    :p

    Carmack, when taliking about the GF4MX said that it would use the GF2MX rendering path (Because of the lack of pixel and vertex shaders).

    So, there *is* a GF2MX rendering path, implying that at least is the minumum. Generally though, the GF3 has been considered the minimum for playability (30fps).

    I'd guess it would work on a GF2MX, in a similar way to Q3A 'working' on an ATI Rage Pro.

    Oh, and the E3 stuff was MEDIUM quality :) !
