You've failed me AMD. I was looking forward to upgrading from the 8800GTX. I know this is only the XT and not the XTX, but the latter has been delayed again. What will happen then? You will only catch up to the GTX while NVIDIA have their 8900 almost ready?
Bring on some K10 Phenom X4 processors that will trounce Intel's Core Yorkfield that has the all-threatening SSE4 and 45nm and you might have me back.

This is odd though, I fully expected ATI to blow the 8800 out of the water after all that (relitive) time. Guess they're too busy open sourcing their drivers... supposedly... again.
thanks to Silverwmoon!
I abstained from getting an 8800GTX for months, for THIS?
Hopefully the HD 2900 XTX will do a bit better, but seeing that it's just the same card with higher clock speeds (and possibly some more shader pipelines), the underlying problems will most likely still be there. I'm very disappointed.
mouarf, this is great news for the pro NVidia fanboy who i am
though i hope ATI will make a good card next time, and more importantly makes drivers that work better in linux, because it wouldn't be good if NVidia had a monopoly on high end card (allowing it to overprice them, as for the 8800 ultra)
So does SSE4 and 45nm.
