You can try this yourself but cranking up the quality on NV cards to max and it will get the same shimmer. There was a huge thread at B3D about it.
I'd still like a link to something that says it is fixed beyond some users on another forum, that just happens to have been owned by a guy that ended up working for ATi PR.

AFAIK this hasn't been fixed, and ATi cards still shimmer.
