    Meh, what's the big deal. Hey, as long as my card can play better than another sub $400 card that for some reason only has 12 pipes I don't care :rolleyes:

    *prepares to be flamed by ATI trolls*

    Yup..........well I can tell you its an RMA job for me and most probably lots more......as nVidia still clearly states onsite and also on the packaging for my product ......that this feature is included on the 6800 series!

    I also see it didnt take long for a few A$$h0les to get their stupid childish remarks in......pathetic! GROW UP! :mad:

    People who get great comfort out of others misfortune dont even deserve what they themselves have!

    I dont know, I have done some tests and my CPU usage seems to be about the same if not alittle less then my 9800XT?? Maybe it is just the Earlier 6800s? Even then it is not like it affects the 3D proformance of the cards in a game?? Which is really what I want the card for??

    Hmm......

    Thats like saying I bought a colour TV but when I got it home I found out the colour chip is broken......but its ok because all I want to do is watch the programmes anyway............so i'll watch in black and white!!? :rolleyes:

    Its not the point!!

    When u pay big money for a product thats supposed to do things you bought it for (and quite a few have for this purpose alone) you expect it to function exactly as you have paid for it to do so!

    :sigh:

    LOL......it gets worse!! :mad: :mad: DAMN nVIDIA!!

    Nvidia 6800 acceleration works

    Video acceleration works

    So........ let me see if I have this straight......now.......bear with me...
    To fix a problem (or enable a feature that is supposed to already be enabled) we have to........

    1. Wait till a driver set comes along enabling features that are broken due to Hardware failure.

    2. Go back to nvidia and "purchase" software (nDVD) at a further cost of $20????!

    Well thats great..... we get Mpeg2 decoding......which we've basically known all along works. And what was touted as a major feature (wmvHD decoding) will work for what is essentially a lower grade card. For some reason.......I find this b*llsh*t.

    I paid for what Nvidia said/advertised/promised/touted was in the new card and I expect to get it!

    nVidia back on form......up to their old tricks again!!!

    Figures.... :(

    This is bad, however I got my card at $330US and it was alot cheaper then anything ATi had that can match it.

    The market is getting tougher now. There is alot more involved in making these cards. Things are going to go wrong and there will always be bugs. You have to understand this.

    Also it is nothing like a Color TV, lol. I dont even touch video encoding?? I just play games, check my email and surf the web. I watch movies, but I already checked and my card plays them great with less CPU usage then my 9800XT???

    So this comes down to you needing this one thing, So I guess you should have researched that it was going to work for you? I knew before I brought the card that it would work perfect for what I wanted?

    To me, it makes no difference if it works or not? Not like a Color TV not playing in color.

    For those whom bought...

    Well for one thing if you bought this card for just the decoding ability I find it stupid that you did not do actual research before buying it.

    video processor info from Nvidia directly

    Although note what they say later on;
    This means sooner or later there may be a firmware/driver to add HDWMV to the compatablitly list. Now how long is it before forceware 70 comes out?

    This sounds a lot like ATi's VideoShader (I think that's what it was called) feature back in the day with the R300 series. I thought it would be really awesome, but AFAIK, driver/software support never happened for it, unless you count the WMV acceleration check box that shows up in omega drivers and beta drivers.
