Haha - shame it'll take them a year to get the drivers working right - they may
have the right guys in hardware, but their coders must be Microsoft rejects. I'll
admit the numbers look nice on paper and would like to see what it can do real-
world-wise. I doubt Nvidia will go quietly, their main reason for lagging behind
(IMHO) was their waste of time developing the Xbox chip. They're both big
names in the industry and a war between the two can only help us gamers.

Ati's drivers have been poor in the past. Times have changed though. Ati has
consistenly been releasing new driver every 2-3 weeks. I have had my Radeon
8500 for about 4 months now and it works great. I have tested about 30 different
games on it and only found one game that would not work.

Yeah, I've heard some people compliment them on finally stepping up. The major
gripping I heard about these cards when they came out was the lack of updates -
ATi originally claimed they would release beta's etc. as they became available,
but only seemed to release MS certified versions. Nice to hear they're getting
things in check - they've been around long enough in the industry that they
should know what they're doing.
