Good ol Charlie. I thought I disliked Nvidia but man does this guy hate them. I don't know if I would trust what he writes. He is too biased and would blast Nvidia if they came out with the cure for cancer.

I just skimmed the article but sounds like trouble if it's the truth.

The thing that makes me wonder is not so much this article...it's the article on anandtech about the making of the 5800 chips. As I read that story I kept asking myself...why is ATI suddenly so eager to share this info. They never talk about crap like this, and half the article is about how and why they kept the die size smaller. Now it makes me wonder if maybe they know something.... :-k Could all be nothing..but when is the last time you saw ATI blab about this kinda stuff? That said...if Fermi comes out in any kinda numbers, I'll grab one. Should still a folding monster GTX 280 X 2 = big PPD.

And....now there is this. I know..this guy hates Nvidia. But ya gotta wonder, and yes, I am an ATI fan. Not to the point of not owning nvidia cards...I just like to cheer for ATI...so this does make me smile..just a little. http://semiaccurate.com/2010/02/20/semi ... 80-scores/

I wouldn't bother reading into those articles without a big bowl of salt.

I plan on getting one as well by not if the above prices are true.
