    as a consumer, I'd prefer AMDs route because they should be easier to overclock, and also get a greater performance improvement for each step up vs nvidia.

    I do think its a little dumb that both companies are basically taking the easy way out when it comes to a new generation gpu.

    damm, I read it as doggy at first. I'd love an ATI gpu that did it that style.

    more transistors = lower maximum clock speed

    so it will be interesting how this pans out

    Dont forget thoses are only pure rumors .. Even there DP/SP dont look to match ( 5.38Tflops SP and 1.6 Tflops DP ? ) Too high on DP and with a strange ration between both ) 1: 3.336 )..

    Because instead of finding ways to actually improve performance of each thread and each clock cycle, they're just taking on more of them instead.
