  1. Nvidia Geforce FX awards page

    I assume that this aware is based solely on the core design and not the actual use of the "DustBuster" in a computer. Looking at the DX9 features implemented in the FX and 9700Pro the FX has more. I guess that "best graphics processor" in this case isn't based on actual performance.

    isnt this the one that caught alot of flak because by it's own rules the graphic's processor to be eligible for the award has to be on the market for purchase during the year in question? and the guy who did the award weaseld by saying that card manufacturers had been able to buy the chipset by the end of 2002.

    Dunno, this is the first I had seen anything about it. But it is quite funny that the best graphics processor of 2002 has still got to hit the shelves.

    yeah that is what the fuss was about. according to the rules the award could only be given to a graphics chip that available in the year the award was given(2002) and the guy fudged by claiming that since some card manufacturers had the chipset by the end of 2002 it was qualified. which to me would put a shadow of doubt over the guy's credibility and objectivity. if he is willing to fudge on his own rules what else does he fudge on?

    I would have given the award to 3Dlabs Wildcat VP series cards.
