I am going to “The Gathering” (the UK conference !).
Although it is a DX8 event, I thought £250 for a 2 day conference + a GeForce3 was actually a very good deal !
I tried to phone the organisers (is that plain english ???) to ask if OpenGL drivers would be installed on the test machines (yes, we also get to test our software over there, if we want to !) and have had no answer yet (so, thanks Cass !).
On the other hand, I thought the card they would give would have the drivers (i.e. it is an ELSA Gladiac 920, so I suppose it will be the retail model !).
I know some other people of this board are going (won’t give the names as I don’t know if they want me to !) but perhaps it would be a good idea that everybody who intends to go says it: how about a late pub session ???
P.S.: I thought I’d add that I am going as part of my job… Although going just for the GF3 could sound interesting, I would not do it: my home computer does not even have an AGP port (and it is a Cyrix 133+) !
P.S. 2: Also wanted to mention that we have to sign a NDA for the conference so I doubt we will be able to talk about what happens there… On the other hand, I suppose we will be allowed to talk about the performance of the card (or won’t we ?).
