Bout Freakin Time - ATI DX-10 Cards Announced

I was starting to wonder if AMD was going to let Nvidia hog all the DirectX 10 stuff... but they're finally announcing their new line. The ATI Radeon HD 2000 series. I'll be keeping my eye out for the hardware comparison up against the Nvidia 8800s, but competition is always a good thing for the consumer... Lower prices, here we come.

Tech Report has a little more in-depth look at the HD 2900 here. The results are a little confusing... in some of the tests, the ATI does much better, but in others that purport to test the exact same thing, the GeForces are markedly out in front. Gonna need to wait a bit and see what comes out in the wash, I think.
