Yeah, but they tanked their credibility and yesterday there was a debate over on B3D about how nVidia was claiming the 45.23 set were FM approved and FM said they were NOT FM approved...but buried in B3D's forum and not on their site.

How can you trust them for credibility when they pull stuff like that? And how come they're allowing nVidia drivers that put the 5900U at parity with the 9800P if HL2 benchmark shows the DX9 performance discrepancy?

I think FM is done, and good riddance.

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."
