I did read that yesterday as well as the one @ toms hardware. I also talked with someone that had a card to play with. Seems they are handing several different samples to try, all with different drivers and in some cases, different cards all together.The person I spoke with said it is a little better then a gf3 in overalll performance. Really when you think about it that is a letdown. This is supposed to be a next generation card. With Nvidia having a possible geforce 3 ultra around the corner and a geforce 4 in the spring. ATI really needs a homerun here. Hopefully they will get there act together in the driver department, which is my biggest complaint with the now "classic" radeon.
