FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA told them their drivers are better and faster than those from ATI in Windows 7. The graphics giant compared the performance of the Radeon HD 4850 1GB against the upcoming GeForce GTS 250 1GB in seven games. NVIDIA claims the GeForce GTS 250, which is an updated GeForce 9800 GTX+ card, was the fastest card in five games. The other two were an instant win because they wouldn't even run with ATI's driver.
Nvidia was happy to report that it wins in the top five games, and in two other games it scores better, as ATI would not even run these games. According to the source Nvidia wins in Call of Duty World at War by a few frames, Call of Duty 4 by more than ten percent. It is slightly faster in Left 4 dead and almost two times faster in Mirror’s Edge. You can probably blame lack of PhysX for ATI, for such a performance lead in this game.
ATI didn’t want to run Enemy Territory Quake wars and Fallout, which was an instant win for Nvidia. We are quite sure that these drivers will improve for both Nvidia and ATI as there are at least two more quarters until the launch of Windows 7.
