Nvidia lands Doom 3 deal

A new page that has recently been added on the Nvidia Web site has revealed the company has struck a deal with the makers of Doom 3.

The page gives the following information which tells us that Activision and id Software are now advising the game be played on machines using GeForce FX graphics cards. “Nvidia is pleased to announce that id Software recommends the GeForce FX family of graphics processing units for DOOM 3.” says the new message.

This now means Half Life 2 will “officially” run better on an ATI card, but Doom 3 will “officially” run better on an Nvidia. This is bad news for people who wanted the best machine to run each game as each card will now have it’s plus and minus points.
