i was playing Halo (Xbox modded) With my friend yesterday, and we realalized how good the graphics were.

The Xbox has a Geforce3 Graphics Card Right? (Nv25)
And a nVidia Geforce FX 5600 has Nv31.

how is it HAlo preforms WAY better on an older card?
When my friends card is better?

well, the whole Xbox system's parts are designed for eachother. correct?
also, the GFX card is OEM for Xbox.

and the TV is a factor :o

NV25 is a geforce4, not a geforce3

GeForce4 Ti 4600 (NV25)

The Xbox is just concentrating on running the game (not an OS, anti-virus software, etc.) compared to a PC which is processing tons of other things at the same time. Also, Halo can be optimized better for an XBox because the hardware is the same on all of them.

And as Blink mentioned, the TV is a BIG factor. You're displaying on a fixed resolution, that is WAY smaller than most computers use. (Standard NTSC format is 648x486)

The TV's resolution covers up for many sins. Try playing your games on 648x486 and see how well they play! Your trying to compared 1600x1200 on a newer card to a resolution 1/2 that.

Or... 1/6?

648 x 486 =314,928 pixels
1600x1200 = 1,920,000 pixels

"A: The Xbox's video card, or better known as the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is powered by the X-Chip. This is basically a tweaked version of the Geforce 3 graphics card."

I did say it was Custom.

http://www.xboxcentral.net/faq.html

"A 733MHz Intel Pentium III CPU acts as the brains of the unit, while a 250MHz NVIDIA GPU provides the graphics muscle. Using the newer NVIDIA chip puts the Xbox's graphics a notch ahead of the GeForce3 chip"

http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/index.php ... d;46390508

Well i could not find the link from nVidia. or the interview. (got it from limewire LOL)

anyway Back to the point. how is it that the Xbox Performs Better than the Newer card? 5600.

Everything is in the xbox is OEM for eachother. it is played on a TV ad minimum resolution, and the game is made for the specs on the xbox.

No, the xbox is a proprietary system, that does exactly what it was intended to do very well. It all depends on what you want to do with the hardware.
