Actually you obviously clearly missed the "riced up" part of the analogy. As in a racer / gearhead / car enthusiast took a fuel efficient car and boosted the snot out of it so it could be used for racing. Just like ATI has taken their previous 4x gen boosted it, tweaked it and called it a 5x. Both are race cars. Many automotive enthusiasts spend HOURS debating the merits of "rice rockets" vs "lead sleds". Both tackle the problem of going FAST! NOW! differently then the other. Both have their own strenghs and weaknesses....just like ATI and NV have their strong points. Guess you arent a car guy. Sorry.
Are YOU telling me a guy who loves ATI would even consider a NV card?are you trying to tell me that a guy who loves american muscle cars would even consider a honda?
Why would you be relieved?no point. I find it interesting that my thoughts on it were so controversial. I was never trying to change anyone's mind, I was just stating what I thought.
And what was said above is probably true, all the talk over the last 9 months had hyped it up so much I expected a lot more. I was relieved
I can't wait to see the numbers 6 months from now and I also can't wait to see ATI's refresh release.
I love this stuff.
