    Post numbers, man. Some games are going to be more memory bandwidth-limited than others, for example.

    if the main improvement to this chip is simply the memory architecture, a lot of people are going to be disappointed. sm 3.0 isnt worth releasing a new chip for at this point in time imo

    Fraps, Reccomend doing it in a place like the Qeynos Catacombs. Which seem to be fairly well pixel limited (Texture/Pixel) Or if you wanna be pixe limited. Go to the Sunken City in freeport :)

    Found on Yahoo, apparently from the "National Post" (paid website):

    ;)

    (And, no, I don't put much merit in it, but its an interesting one!)

    Was posted already in the "Series6" thread. As I said there all ATI needs is to design a stronger chip than Imageon and switch to selling IP in that market. Buying out IMG just for that sounds a tad overkill to me, plus that it could essentially mean the death of the last TBDR frontier in general. Not that IMG is releasing anything for the PC for the past few years, but I don't think black suits me particularly well.... :oops:
