Which is better Built BY or Power BY

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My friend & I are having a argument about ATI Video cards, I say that Video cards Built BY ATI are better than Power BY (meaning Saphire, H.I.S. etc) My thoughts are based on warrenty 3yrs for Built BY ATI vs 1yr for some or all of their partners (Power BY). Plus ATI themselves have been doing this alot longer. Who's right me are my friend & which is faster, quality, who has the better display drivers.

Well, all kinds of people come out with drivers, not just the companies that manufacture the cards.Essentially, all the cards COME from ATI, but some manufacturers (to my understanding) spend extra time releasing only cards that OC, or are of a certain stability at certain frequencies, etc.

BTW -- some companies offer LIFETIME warranties, regardless of overclocking. This seems to be more prevalent in Nvidia cards (i know XFX does this, they even have DOUBLE lifetime warranties protecting the second owner if you sell it, pretty schweet).
