Nice FUD
What Demo machines? All of the games I saw running on the Nv40 looked pretty sweet to me, framerates were awsome. Exept the one farcry machine, which Jakup tells me was running smooth when he played it. Where you even there? And once agian, you won't be defending lack of ps3.0 when Ati has it.

Who cares what state the drivers are in right now, nobody's got the cards.

the X800pro can do that today!? Really?!

I don't think anyone has to make excuses on lack of horsepower on either of the cards. We haven't seen a leep this much in a while.
