Do you guys actually think that the R9700 release is going well????
Since the release Rage3d had literally exploded with problem reports and not just with drivers.
It also now seems that all the first batch of R9700's have a defective bios and will have to be RMA'd back to ATI for replacement since they can not be flashed.
This is terrible!!! Not only are customers going to be very upset by this but it is going to cost ATI an arm and a leg to replace all these boards. (Shipping paperwork etc...)
That cost is nothing compared to the cost they will pay in reputation.
Sorry guys, but ATI had a GOLDEN chance to really stick it to nvidia this time around and shake their reputation of having "bad drivers"and they totally blew it IMO.
