"Once again ATI is leading the charge into new technologies."
LOL - ATI is anything but a "leader" when it comes to innovation. Whether it's shader technology, driver technology, or SLI, ATI is always watching (and lagging badly behind) whatever it is that Nvidia is doing.
"Is that why the PS3 chip is a generation behind the XBox360"?
Cy, are you frigg'in living in a vacuum or something? Dude! Wake up and come back to earth. STEP AWAY from the crack pipe Cy. pLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE cy, SHOW US ALL the links and technical info. to back up that kind of 'atyguy bullshit'. The most humorous aspect of the xbox 360 thus far is NVIDA...YES N*V*I*D*I*A getting royalties from EVERY (reverse compatable) unit sold! That is, if ATI can produce and YEILD enough chips! Again-->LMAO!!!!
