NVIDIA snags endorsement for DOOM 3
We've suspected for a while now, since ATI has cozied up to Valve over Half-Life 2, that NVIDIA and id Software might be making similar arrangements. Today, NVIDIA announced that id Software has endorsed the GeForce FX for use with DOOM 3:
NVIDIA is pleased to announce that id Software recommends the GeForce FX family of graphics processing units for DOOM 3. This week, many of our add-in card and system builder partners have begun to display a special sticker on their retail packaging and company Websites to promote this recommendation to consumers.
This marks a great achievement for GeForce FX GPUs. Look for this sticker on video cards equipped with a GeForce FX GPU and witness the mind-blowing detail of the DOOM 3 experience - the way it's meant to be played.

. Feel the excitement!
What exactly does this endorsement mean, beyond the obvious? Hard to say yet. Nothing here explicitly precludes similar endorsements for ATI, S3, XGI, and the rest. Could a game bundle deal be on the way, though?
