Man, it's amazing to look at how on the ball ATI was for the Radeon 9[5-8]00 line and see how badly they fouled things up afterwards. Seems like partnering with MS for their Xbox GPU is the kiss of doom.
Well, that depends on your point of view. I think MS put down some brutally large piles of cash for that RSX chip, so I think that ATI feels they're doing pretty damn well.
But yeah, since the 9800 Pro, ATI has definitely been losing ground, been overtaken, and is now staring at Nvidia's ass from quite a ways away. Their top of the line cards sound great, but ofcourse you can't buy one to save your life.
Edit : You're wrong in that. You can keep your position.
I guess some of the local races confused me then, where candidates resigned to focus on their race for a different position, and I somehow got the idea that they HAD to do that.
Edit 2 : Becuase people have said High was meant for videocards w/ 512 meg of texture memory...
Hmmm... I'll switch it to medium tonight, and see what it does. I hate trading in Image Quality though... This comment was edited on Oct 21, 16:16.
