Default Rumor

What if ATI did a promotion like AMD did with the XP's and traveled around giving away graphics cards? I think Ichy might know something about this.

Sure! You're a nasty poodle! You're a bad poodle! You're a poodle who just can't play nicely with the other poodles so you get locked-up in the closet a lot which makes you into an even NASTIER poodle!! Then when they give you that ridiculous hair-cut, paint your toe-nails blue, and stick bows in your hair you're gonna be a silly looking little nasty poodle; which is probably not gonna help your already contrary disposition and make you into an even nastier still poodle! Once all the other dogs come around and laugh at such a silly little nasty poodle it does nothing to improve your mood yet again and your nastiness just keeps increasing...


Need I go on or do you get the picture now?

Well, I'd rather be a nasty poodle than a sourpuss. I really wish Ichy would stop screwing around and let is in on some of this info. I bet he thinks because he has "priviledged" info that he is better than us. Bastard.

Unhappy

Well its only ever America that benfits from these crap little promotions so who gives a rats ass..

Yes, I am sour that AMD never visited at least ONE city out of the USA to give away their CPU/MOBO bundles.

Default Uhm...

Why would a Canadian company only do it's promo in the US?

(I know, I shouldn't question the mysterious ways of ATI; but this one struck me as silly!)

Oh, and does anyone have any information on the free radeon trade-up program that ATI is starting for all current 8500 owners due to the high-poly bug? (How's that for rumor starting! )

Yup, they'll give you $100 USD off list on a trade up.

is the high poly bug confirmed to be hardware based? I thought the new not-yet-release drivers that Nitro has fixed that particular bug?
