No one saw the GDDR4 coming because they weren't reading up on it, GDDR5 samples should be out later this year

QFT, Ati sure dropped the bomb on the R600, releasing it with the bad drivers was one of the worst moves they could have done.

yes the card has good drivers, and it did at one point last week have the best score on 3dmark (after some huge overclocking)

Real World performance is what counts. I'd take better frame rates and higher settings on games over higher points in benchmarks any day of the week.
