ergo i don't take everything he says to heart I read through a few threads about digital vibrance and the one where CM responded and initially stated what he did about DV as being something he felt was possible... it became apparent soon after that he seemed not to know about DV and what it did.. and eventually he stated that he and the driver team would take a look @ it and if the user base wanted such a feature they would implement it...

I buy my products based on various reasons and needs... none of which involves CM or anyone smoking pipes

personally I think DV is a feature that should be an option... but the way many make it sound it appears as if they WON'T buy a video card unless they have DV available... fair enough... I didnt find the colors to be that much more 'vibrant' that I would put off a purchase... but thats just me...

saturnoku... concerning solomon... thats all well and good but I dont know what discussions solomon had with CM or any other ati staff and I am unaware of the legality of the issue... they both did what they did.. and some sort of compromise was reached @ the end... which was unpleasant at best...

Thats exactly how we should feel, Realise that CM is a PR machine, Just like any other PR machine.

Knowing this makes it alot easier to deal with him. This really isn't about DV, Driver cheats or anything else,

I feel he is misleading the ATI community,But thats personally my opinion.

I use Catalyst maker for a source of information of what "may" be included in future driver releases, But I wish people wouldn't take everything he says to be "the absolute truth" Because it's not his job to be our friend, It's his job to keep his job and convince you to buy their products :P
