Let's not forget the spec that DX9 calls for is FP24 and that it NEVER calls for FP32 and that nVidia has no one but themselves to blame for that design failur..."feature".
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
