This is great news. I'm glad to hear AMD/ATI are back in the game. Nvidia has been dragging its feet for the last year, and the only reason we saw the introduction of the 8800GT when we did: is because the 3850 (and to a lesser extent the 3870) had Nvidia running scared. The 3850 totally slaughtered Nvidia's entire low-end product lineup. And the 3870 gives the older 8800GTS and even the 8800GT a decent run for its money.

Now if only AMD's CPU division can recover, and compete with Intel again. We're seeing the same behavior from Intel now, like we did from Nvidia. Dragging its feet with the new 45nm processors.

We need competition like this, and price wars. I don't ever want to have to pay $600 for a video card again, like I did when I bought the X800 three years ago.
