Bad AMD drivers by nvIDia?

Query : AMD drivers?

Edit : Just been looking over that firingsquad article, and looking at the screenshots in it. Now, knowing full well every half life 2 fanboy will blow a gasket and spend the rest of his existence flaming me, I think Half Life 2 doesn't really look all that great.
Those screenshots are taken at 4xFSAA and 8xAF? The very first screenshot, the wall looks sharp up until that shimmering portal, but the wall near the door just looks like ass. Isn't AF supposed to rectify that? Is it actually functioning, I wonder?

Same for those fire screenshots, it just doesn't look all that shithot to me.

As for the benchmarks, yawn, who cares. ATI paid Valve money to make it run faster on ATI, mystery solved. ATI doesn't have a good OpenGL driver, which is why Nvidia clocks them in Doom 3, in this game the slight edge of the X800 shows, plus whatever artificial slowdown Valve put in to show that ATI = Teh Win.

I mean, check every other benchmark in existence, and there isn't THAT much difference between the X800 and the 6800, (with exception of Doom 3, and with the exception that the 6800 is something put together by mongolian children with parkinson. Nice cooling and power requirements there, Nvidia) so there's gotta be something going on behind the screens, right?
