Ruby was snowboarding on the mountain and our friends at Hexus even took a video of it. ATI thinks that this was enough to cheer its partners but I guess they were wrong.
ATI partners are super concerned about R600 and the whole RV630 generation. They all feel that R600 is no more a performance leader and they know that Nvidia has something even faster to top their performance.
Being seven months late doesn’t help you to bring the confidence in the performance leadership especially when Geforce 8800 is doing so well.
Ruby dancing on the show was looking good and fine but it just deepened the feeling that ATI is losing versus G80 and therefore you are not suppose to run anything on that machine.
