    <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> Man the way they show on truform demo over the ATI Websites, I mean look at that finally that what i was looking for. Smooth edges that what a real hardcore gamers need. That will bring life into the game that will look so real. But as soon I realized that the developers have to develop that and also nvidia is copying ATI's thunder. Use technique called B.O.D.E which is copying ATI Truform technology and ATI could sue Nvidia for that.<br>
    I should not have bought Geforce 3 :-( and I should have been more patient with my money. It was a waste of money on gefroce 3 and I have learned my lesson, thanks rcf8. <IMG SRC="smileys/approve.gif"> <IMG SRC="smileys/bounce.gif"> <br>
    Can't wait.. but there is something bothering me about ATI 8500 product is that they have no heatsink on the memory core and it will burn out faster. But since ATI is allowing other companys to manafacture ATI Graphic board of there own, just like Nvidia. Maybe they will put a heatsink on it. But I rather buy directly from ATI and buy a heatsink for the 3.6 ns memory (WOW!).<br>
    Well college bills goes on the first place, then a car, then the board of R200 not Rv200.

    Well this is a good beening more patient with my money. Well i want to see Gigabyte, Powercolor, and Asus R200 cards could lower the Prices on the R200. ATi's Radeon 8500 card seems very good can battle the Geforce 3 and CS looks better on the R200 over the Geforce 3.<br>
    Who would like to see this<br>
    Asus V8200 vs. Asus V8500 !!!!
  4. lol, i was impatient too and i bought the radeon 64 mb ddr just a month before the radeon 8500 and 7500 was to be released. good thing i returned the card to get the money back in credit.

    Well the Radeon 8500 make the GF3 look like sh!t in image quality now. FPS isnt everything.<br>
    I want to see that 16x FSAA.

    Well, at the time we see the final silicon and better drivers it should do quite good! I don't expect nVidia to improve performance after the release of the Detonators 4's so it's ATi which have the playing field now.

    Remeber guys, don't put your hopes up. The reason I went Radeon 32DDR is cause I was wondering if there was anything cheaper than the GeForce2 GTS at the time, with great performance. All my buds suggested Radeon. I went with Radeon and I am pleased. If anything, I just like to see drivers improved on old radeon cards too. Like performance boosts. I hope after the 8500 is released, they arn't gonna just drop the card.

    Well i hope ATi's drivers do improve alittle more. There fine now but a little more proformace tweaks would work too.
