They are truly amazing in their ability to follow the technology curve 2-5 years after other vendors launch products.
Even "EyeFinity" their supposed achievement, was available on Matrox and NVIDIA Quadro for years prior.
Next up, ATi "invents" ambient occlusion...two years late...and if AMD doesn't lay off the rest of their staff and outsource the work to VIA/S3......
Dunno about Quadro products, but as far as matrox is concerned, and we are talking regular consumer products, you'd be talking about the parhelia graphics processor, wich showed up a few months before ATI's R300 and the turd that was the NV30......It was limited to 3 screens at 1024*768 resolution and that was it.
Anyhow, the price of the beast is reveiled at 550$ for the HD7970 cards.
