Yes, that did happen. The drivers were pulled, and the problem was fixed very quickly.
It happens to everyone, its happened a lot to AMD/ATI in the past too, if you really want to go down that route.

Trust me, I would have loved to keep my 6950's but they were (loud, Hot and buggy). And the same can be said for my friends cards and all the other 6XXX series I have owned.
I actually returned cards to XFX because after lots of troubleshooting they thought it was teh card too. The card tested okay when it got back to them, and the new card I received had the same game issues.

They have great GPU designs, just poor drivers.
WHich is why nVidia is now dominant in my rigs, until the 7XXX comes out and I give them a try again.
