ATI R600 : What It Means To Techarp

The R600 is late, very late. The only ones not admitting that are AMD and ATI. It's a repeat of the delays that plagued the R5XX. By missing ATI's own time-to-market schedule, it not ony screwed up upgrade plans for many users, it also gave NVIDIA the opportunity to consolidate their position as the only graphics chip company with a DirectX 10 GPU.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because Nvidia still doesn't have half-decent Vista drivers. I still can't use my second GPU on my GF 7950, and my favorite game, Half-Life 2, runs buggy on all of their cards.

...why the heck use vista anyway now? My XP needs 155 MBs idle, vista however needs a s_h_i_t_l_o_a_d of 500 MBs in idle. Rather than being faster it's slower and uses up more resources. I'll stick with XP.

There is not point in upgrading graphics cards without Vista, and I got it for free anyway. So its time to start figuring out what works and what doesn't. The Nvidia card ran HL2 buggy in XP also.
