  Caution on conclusion

I would be cautious about conclusions on new Radeons. What was the driver version used? Present drivers will definitely not reflect true performance, as new drivers have to be used tailored for new architecture. Remember, we are now comparing a still to be finalised graphics system with mature NVidia architecture and drivers. I will give ATI the benefit of the doubt here. Also I'm concerned about NVidia's optimization games they play within their drivers, which will always play an indirect role comparing benchmarks. I truly hope for ATI they launch a great card (and according to general consensus at present it may just be that), as I would rather pay for a graphics card rendering everything in every game as it should be rendered, without being concerned about optimizations just to chase framerate. Thank you in any case for article, good work.
