3D News, GL, DirectX "ATI's R5xx line was first released back in October 2005. The initial launch covered the X1800 and X1300 series, with the X1600 series following suit in November. Last month we saw the release of the new X1900 series too. Now, let me count the months from October to February; it is 5 months, right? Well, believe it or not, that's the number of months the new X1000 series is out in the market without Linux support. If you are unfortunate enough to own such a card, all you have is Matthew Tippett's statement in Phoronix."

RE: what about specs?

Member since:

If I recall, ATI is better at releasing 2d specs than nVidia already - but I think it's the 3d specs that NOBODY wants to release due to the fear of competition stealing their internals or something.
