Um, I want them to push their technology and not do sneaky business like this. If they're gonna go this far, they might as well staff a division that makes game-specific drivers for ALL games, not just Q3.

But I've found some of their products to be kind of annoying (ATi's products). For a while I wanted to do video capturing and vid editing on my comp. I thought ATi was a specialist on this because it's mpeg/AVI/codecs all that 2D stuff. But this wasn't the case. ATi's video capturing technology is just for d00ds that wanna do video e-mailing and stuff. It isn't the best for capture, it captures pretty crappily. Moral of the story: A lot of bells and whistles are sure signs of lameness -the company will have to cut corners somewhere. Be cynical and research like mad. The reason I like nVidia is cause they're not trying to be a million things at once -they're only trying to be THE BEST 3D card. I respect that.

But I don't know, ATi's All-in-Wonder got good reviews. Maybe you can have your cake and eat it too. Of course, the 3D portion of that didn't stack up to nVidia.
