Default Uhm?

Wouldn't it make more sense to use a Phenom AMD-ATI Setup for the 3870/4870, etc.
I think there was a specific reason they partnered up, I don't know, just me and my friend thought "What if"

Believe me, if I had the money for Benchmark setups, I'd love to do some, but I don't. Just something for your reviewers to consider?

This is the forum for feedback on the site, not on rigs.

AMD bought ATI, thats why they partnered up, and while they work together well (phenom, ATI, and ATI chipset) they are not as fast as they woudl be with Intel.
