Unless you've been living under a rock (and probably even if you have), you're aware of the recent release of Doom 3. After some four years in development, calling the latest technological tour-de-force from id Software "highly anticipated" is sort of like saying Michael Moore probably likes to eat.

Game play quality, however, is open to debate. Our Doom 3 review, courtesy of 1UP.com and Computer Gaming World, is extremely positive. Others find the game much like id Software's past history – a decent if uninspired game built on a fantastic new engine. What nobody is debating is the quality of John Carmack's new graphics technology. It's fantastic. It's amazing. It makes environments come alive in ways we've never seen before. And just like past games from id Software, the built-in benchmark for Doom 3 will be used to measure the performance of computer hardware for some time to come. Here we take our first look inside Doom 3 benchmarking, with our first numbers on a variety of modern GPUs.
Proceed to test details & results...

It's obvious that Doom3 was made for Nvidia chipsets. Now ATI will have a hard time to make it's cards run better on the particular game.

Nvidia will have the very same problem when HalfLife 2 will be unleashed, since HF2 is made for ATI chipsets.

I only hope this game compatibility issue will stop here, as the real victims are the gamers who only want to play the latest games.
