In any case, referring to the original post, I thank any company that helps encourage competition, there is nothing inherently special about ATI. Infact I would like to thank nVidia for kicking ATI's butt over and over again that ATI has finally decided to start actually paying more attention to their drivers and cards to actually fix the issues they have been having for years.
As for all the BSOD'ers out there, try updating to the correct drivers once in awhile... I have yet to get a BSOD with any of my nVidia products except when I messed with the drivers myself.
so how exactly do you plan for nvidia to plan out a gx2 280? Won't happen for various reasons. Hardware limitations and the fact it would cost insanely way too much is 2 I can think of right now.
A graphics card is a graphics card regardless of what it has on it. It's still a single unit and only takes up 1 pcix16 slot. So yes, the 4870x2 is still a SINGLE card in which it owns the Nvidia Single Card GTX280. Granted it hasn't been released yet, but based on the 4870 crossfire results, that sets the stage really well for the X2.
