70%! TO SWEET! Wake up Nvidia, ATI calling!!
(I'd be happy if this just gets AMD and ATI solidly back in the game.)

Whoever wrote their drivers should be shot in the crotch.

If their coders sucked less they wouldn't have lost the whole market.

Doesn't sound like this is what so many have been hoping for dsio?

Oh, its definately what people have been hoping for, but the thing is, if such gains can be had now, how bad have the drivers been since the product launch?
