We found a link where you can find complete list of Shader model 3.0 games. Quite a long list don't you think.
If you ask ATI, it will give you all kinds of reasons why Shader Model 3.0 is not that important as it all can be done in Shader Model 2.0b the one their hardware use. It is partly right - it will just be a bit slower with 2.0b then it is with 3.0 but from now on it won't be telling us how there won't be many Shader Model 3.0 games available.
The list has twelve games on it plus Unreal 3engine. Nvidia scored many EA games but I guess that comes from TWIMTBP partnership that those two companies have. Don't get me wrong we think SM 3.0 is very good stuff and more games are coming. µ
List includes many good titles such as: Lord of the rings: Battle for the middle earth, Stalker: Shadows of Chernobyl, Vampire: Bloodlines, Splinter Cell 3, Tiger Woods 2005, Madden 2005, Driver 3.0, Grafan - never heard of it, Metal of Honor: Pacific Assault, Painkiller trough Patch, Far cry trough Patch.
Last but not the least is believe it or not Half Life 2 that will have support for this Shader model that currently works only at Nvidia cards.
Nvidia sure did a great job for getting attention to their marchitecture and we are looking forward to see all those games in action. µ
