This says a lot. And at the end of the day this will hurt NVIDIA. Many went with XFX because of the warranty. Now some might decide to stick with XFX ATI cards.

I doubt that highly.. heat/noise/power consumption for business, military, science etc is far more important than to gamers.

We have heard and confirmed from multiple independent sources that XFX won’t have Fermi cards at launch.

Nvidia is punishing this highly successful brand by cutting them off from Geforce GTX 480 and 470 launch cards, and this is a direct result of XFX's last year's decision to to start selling ATI. Since Nvidia’s sales department doesn't know any better, this is the action the green company decided to take.

Nvidia refuses to see that this might be a bad thing for the whole company as XFX has a very loyal fan base who will probably start standing up for themselves when they realize they won’t get a decent launch quantity of these cards.

In the meantime, XFX’s answer to Nvidia’s cut-out deal is bringing the fastest ever Radeon HD 5970 X2 cards with super specs, and we will try to get as many details as we can.

Not XFX's decision...

I guess XFX need to keep things cordial with Green team to acess some of the future cards, but it would be in XFX advantage for users to know they were cut off because of their association with ATI.

It was. Fudo is editorializing / fanning the burning BS once again.
