ATI R600 Rumour No.2

Now we know why the R600 was delayed for so long. It seems that ATI encountered yet another weird bug with the A0 silicon, but this one did not lock the chips at 500MHz, but rather disabled the Multi-sampling Anti-aliasing (MSAA). Regardless of the problems ATI has encountered, the R600 is shaping up to be something extraordinary. Care to comment? Feel free to do so below...

If what they say is true about nVidia being faster at the simpler computations while ATI is oriented towards the complicated stuff, then relative performance is probably going to be very game-dependent. Here's hoping the card I can afford does all the games I care about well...

I reckon the ATI cards will slap the nV cards pretty hard when they get released. Hopefully they'll be smaller and require less friggin' power than the G80's .
