Wink Don't count ATI out of it yet!

I don't think ATI is gonna give up to nVidia on this one without a fight, their latest drivers that will be available soon (cat3.1, probably released the same day as 3dm2k3. ) have some increased D3D performance...and it wouldn't shock me at all if'n it happened to run better on 3dm2k3 than the last set.

ATI ain't gonna give nVidia a damned inch, they're gonna make nVidia earn each and every win from here on out!

It's a different ballgame today, and I betcha the futuremark crew knows it too.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
