    ATi has left a very sour taste in my mouth with the X1xxx family of cards because of the random flicker problem.

    There's a long thread about it over at Rage3D forums.

    I own an ATi card and I have not faced this problem. Could you point me to a few specific links? I'm sticking with ATi as I am quite satisfied with its overall performance. Having tried the ,x1800xt, x800xl, 9600, 6600GT, 6800GT SLI, 6800GS SLI, NVidia has not performed upto my expectations. The problems I faced were shimmering and poor AA on buildings and railings. It is just a personal preference I always felt something was amiss with my NV cards.
    Software readings are crap.

    Since when does "The Inquirer" break up any rumors?

    It's commonplace and VERY annoying. When the GeForce8 comes out, this thing is toast.

    If performance between the two(8800/R600) is minimal, I've made up my mind to go with NV just to rid myself of CCC.

    I know I can use other means to get the same results from third party software, but I shouldn't have to.

    More rumors regarding the length of the cooler and the power consumption of the upcoming ATI offerings i.e R600. Seriously, what is with the numbers 300W and DX-10? Everybody is throwing these numbers around. God forbid these actually turn out to be correct!

To cool off that beast, you need a 4 heatpipes cooling solution. The R600 card is long from what we have seen, around G80GTX length but the cooler is longer than the PCB. It has two power connectors like the NV flagship card and it is dual slot of course. Also we knew that the last spin at TSMC is less than ideal so we can conclude it is suffering from poor yield at this point of time. It is slated to launch in Q1 2007 according to ATi's roadmap but it might delay further
