ATI has launched
In other words, we should expect ATI to be more aggressive on the driver front in its battles with Nvidia. Certainly, with the 8500, ATI is in the same ballpark, and in some cases ahead, of Nvidia on hardware. Drivers have been an issue, but we have been told, and convinced, that ATI has plans to really force the issue, and get back some of its reputation in this area.
We're testing the new drivers, and it looks like you'll have a field day with the performance boosts ATI has managed for the 8500 and 7500. It's going to be an all out driver war, and we're kind of happy about that. That's the way the graphics business should be, right?
