It would be a heck of a coincidence for a 9 month old monitor to die out literally moments after it was booted with a new prototype video card, moments just before a game comes on.
That's a heck of a chance.
I couldn't even calculate those odds.
However, it was simply a prototype, and not a final design.
What my friend does, is he gets ATI hardware through the mail, he installs it, see how he likes it, fills out a form on what he thinks, how he feels it works, etc. for 30 days, and then sends the hardware back through the mail, with his feedback.
If the final designs are anyting like the particular prototype, it's going to be bad juju. Which is why I had said I hope they fix some serious flaws.
