    Sweet, I've got an HD4830 so this is cool. Even though the drivers are well off in the future.

    NVidia uses too much stuff licensed from other people in their drivers, so they won't be able to OS them.

    Problem is the ATI drivers are not on par with the nVidia ones yet. I will only switch when the drivers are on par or better.

    I think that's the only way for them to survive.

    You could well be right, Necessity breeds innovation.
    It actually costs them nothing as OS coders do the grunt and they sell heaps of graphics cards to us.

    That might be just the cash influx they need to bring their new cpu to fruition.

    Who knows ?

    All I know is that I will be building a new rig around February time and if ati have native 3d drivers for linux then I will consider buying over nvidia.
