So? Whatever became of this?
The Myth crowd are all beside themselves testing out this feature
in the latest nvidia beta drivers. I haven't heard a peep out of
anyone regarding similar features for ATI cards.
Everyone is salivating over the prospects of 8x00 and 9x00 based
netbooks and updates to the AppleTV and Mac Mini.
Truth is irrelevant as long as the predictions are good. |||
