Fact is,if Fermi didn't beat a single Cypress would be a shock,and we still have yet to see by how much given that it is using 850 million extra transistors,so about a 40% higher transistor budget over cypress,and it would be funny if Fermi's performance advantage was smaller than that
I get it just fine.
I was just making the point that I have nothing against ATI.
If Fermi ends up being substandard, it'll be a shame, but I won't be the one trying to tell everyone it's the best thing since sliced bread.
Obviously, I'm hoping for a strong card but time will tell.
