soundly beats my foot.. There are no beat downs issued here:



Q, Im as AMD-happy as the next guy, but this is nothing to be excited about.... ATI hyped it all so much with their bollocks "cinema 2.0" presentations, in the end to match a card over 6 months old, and "trade blows" with a better designed, though obviously 'interim' market filler card in the 9800GTX....

What AMD lacks: pushing the envelope! They seem much more content with licking them closed (as far as gaming anyways) <bleh>
