I really hope these guys haven't moved to Intel.

Intel plays a hard, mean, and below the belt game. Last thing thats needed is for them to dominate in the GPU sector..competition is good, but not dominance.

Surely NVIDIA could have been better prepared for the ATI R700 given the headstart with the 8000 series.

Anyway the one thing that annoyed me about EVGA was the way it seems to rank the chips into a hierachy according to clocking ability. You can just pick up a 4870 with its overdesigned PCB and ramp it up-or way up if your lucky.
