I had a to rma a 5870 due to mass artifacting caused from overheating. Didn't turn me off ati..... Sorry, your point is vague....Has no relevance & if my 5970 had died or needed to be RMA'd so be it.... The case is it's not broken hardware wise however it is crippled often on the DRIVER side. Understand, or are you a blind/deaf fanboy? ATI make great cards and are very competitive against the competition, the drivers and support with devs is what is the huge problem and what is failing them.... Single gpu, usually you're golden, crossfire is hit and miss which is just not acceptable. Often waiting forever for profiles, whilst they're disabling crossfire on other versions of caps for no good reason other than incompetence as they can't get it to properly with CF often when it's needed. Instead..... They take a shortcut, bail on supporting CF with a certain title and disable cf in the next caps 'update' aka would you like an upgrade with your downgrade?.... That's seriously weak.
