what is all this stuff with crappy drivers, i never had a problem with my x1900xt and my x1950xtx... they both ran just fine.... and never had any problems.. and if anything at the time ran and looked much better than any 7 series card out

the 2900 hardware wise is a superior card. The nvidia cards have better drivers and for good reason. if nvidia didn't i would be worried right now. Everything the people have been saying in this thread is old information. Trotter is right, the 2900 has made leaps and bounds since those first few bad reviews and it is giving the ultra tough competition. Don't count it out yet, it still has a long way to go.

there is no evidence that there is even going to be a 9series. its just all a BIG rumor right now. i wouldn't go around hyping up a product that potentially isnt even real.

um there's obviously going to be a 9-series, the rumors are when they are going to be released, i doubt nvidia is going to stop with the naming scheme at "8"
