Are you using Quadro drivers? This has been described by others who use the Quadro drivers.

I won't comment on the Vista discussion. It's too much to get in to here.

(whats gamasutra *googles*)

One of the main arteries of our industry.

Simple. Just as our parents were probably reluctant to move away from letters and phone calls to e-mail many years back, so are we to move from the single-line-of-execution mentality to that of the multi-line. The thinking style, theories and design patterns, and our tools (especially for debugging) are all based around the knowledge that execution can only occur in a linear fashion. Multi-threading breaks this rule, and as such requires redefinitions of many of the basis behind these very things. You have to watch out for such things as race conditions and deadlocks, which are elementary to multi-line. And in some design patterns, the overhead of handling such things actually deters any performance increase that is obtainable, resulting in a necessity of redefining or scrapping the design pattern all together.

It's not that the technology is bad. Quite the opposite. But we have to adjust to it before we can dive right in to it. It's happening, but it'll take time. There is an excellent C library out there which is open sourced but I cannot recall its name at this time. It actually handles many of the fundamentals with working in a multi-threaded environment for you, assigning tasks to threads balanced for the processing capabilities of the machine executing the code, all while allowing you to think more single-line.

You can probably find many good articles on the subject if you snoop around Gamasutra a little.

Edit: I just noticed your last question: "how do game designers move forward with the hardware". Pal, we're the Gaming Industry. We're the ones responsible for pushing any new hardware into the mainstream. :)

Yeah? Well here is a good lesson for you Swift. Maybe next time instead of immediately disrespecting someone and being an ass, you'll stay level headed and assess the situation.

And I find it ironic how we are discussing respect when even this moderation team seems to fail in the same area. Back when I administrated, I'd be damned if I'd let a mod publicly outright put down another's chosen action. How many times a player is asked is irrelevant. Career criminals don't get charges dropped if they resist arrest because they've been arrested so many times before and are "fed up" with it.

It doesn't matter if you don't like it. If you get asked, you comply. If you don't feel he has the authority, you look it up first. If you feel you are being picked on, you bring it up with the administration. But what you don't do is act like a total dick and expect special treatment.

God damn the idiocy is unbearable. Swift, here is what you need to do. You need to drop that attitude of yours and look me straight in the eye and ask me, "Why don't you like me?" You need to accept that there may be something on your end that you need to change - that you are not perfect - and maybe you can make progress on this little endeavor of yours. But until you are willing to respect my feelings, I'll be damned if I will give a rats ass about yours.

Just to make sure I get this point across, I'll say it one last time. IF YOU ASK ME TO FUCKING CONTACT YOU ONE MORE TIME, I WILL SHOVE A FUCKING 40 FOOT STICK UP YOUR ASS, AND BREAK IT HALF WAY IN. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO WANTS TO BE LIKED AND UNDERSTOOD. YOU TAKE THE FUCKING INITIATIVE.
