The term "failure" is such an objective term.

According to Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary:

"Main Entry:
fail·ure Listen to the pronunciation of failure
Pronunciation:
\\ˈfāl-yər\\
Function:
noun
Etymology:
alteration of earlier failer, from Anglo-French, from Old French faillir to fail
Date:
1643

1 a: omission of occurrence or performance; specifically : a failing to perform a duty or expected action <failure to pay the rent on time> b (1): a state of inability to perform a normal function <kidney failure> — compare heart failure (2): an abrupt cessation of normal functioning <a power failure> c: a fracturing or giving way under stress <structural failure>
2 a: lack of success b: a failing in business : bankruptcy
3 a: a falling short : deficiency <a crop failure> b: deterioration, decay
4: one that has failed
"

I think the R600 might constitute a failure in accordance to the fact it did not meet the deadline(s) specified and that it was originally thought to be a GTX killer (the XTX). On the other hand, it's not a bad card by any means, and does what it's supposed to do (runs games and apps well).

Hmmm. I think I stand by my decision of "failure" in the poll, but only in strict technical terms, and is somewhat misleading. I still think it's a good card and by no means a poor purchase.

Given what my brand new 8800GTS 640MB is doing right now with 3DMarks (possibly breaking my personal best that was set with Crossfire X1900's), I'd say the 2900XT has to perform quite well to match that card.

I mean... 675 Core / 2210 mem on the 8800GTS... that's serious performance.

I'd say fail just because it isn't really what I would expect from ATi as far as cutting edge major releases go. It's good, no doubt, just not really all that good, getting pretty solidly beaten by nVidia's second rate card. Add the fact that it was delayed so long just makes for a rather disappointing show for ATi. Now nVidia has an even bigger jump on the competition, since their latest technology has already been out for a few months, and it's better.
