What they don't mention in doing so is that ATi didn't even design the 9700Pro. ATi purchased a company called "ArtX" that had a good GPU design and then used it for their next two generations of products. I believe the next card ATi designed was the 2900XT.
If that's true then that's absolutely hilarious. Their huge victory was simply bought and the card they did design failed miserably
