Yes, the original Radeon looked better - when games actually ran on it. This was back in the day when ATI couldn't put together a proper driver to save its soul. For the longest time the original Radeon didn't have working Windows 2000 drivers
I remember those Days..

I remember that ATi had a HUGE oportunity to become a major player back then. But.. They didnt even remotely have the Right people in place to accomplish something like that back then.

I remember being all excited about the origional Radeon and Finally getting to mess around with one At Work. Quake3 was a COMPLETE and TOTAL Jerky mess of Unplayable *Crapola*.

Talk about a Huge letdown.

Thank God the new Leadership at ATi have Taken the Challenge seriously and have Taken ATi into Serious leadership territory.
