Good call, z3speed4me. I thought I had mentioned that. I've amended the post and the thread.

I hope all is not lost for the red team!

The 2900 is competing with the 8800GTS. Not the GTX or the Ultra.

Right you are, however, I have a feeling that R600 has alot more to offer.

I think pitch is right. There are some driver issues to get worked out along the way but, I think they will get them worked out. Still in the the meantime these cards are driving many people nuts! Even when just running one card. So AMD/ATI better get after it.
