AMD hardware is awsome, AMD drivers arn't. AMD needs a more robust agile driver team.
That they do, Currently waiting for their next set to post to clear up some AC:R Graphical glitches.
Cool... I guess we'll be seeing an increased variety of quality DisplayPort monitors now that AMD is onboard.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
So using a display port connector will provide better graphics than using VGA?
Nice, I am glad to see VGA kicked to the curb. Next step is reducing the cost of the display port connectors!

So future generations of AMD 6000 series will be Display port 1.2 certified, or all AMD 6000 series cards (including those already released) may or do have the capability to run and support display port 1.2?
@OSunday, existing ones are good to go, from what I've read (softpedia, etc). New (and better) technology being adopted is always a good thing in my book. The end of VGA couldn't come fast enough.
I just wish the AMD drivers were as good as NVIDIA's. They also need to do more in terms of connecting with developers and institutions to adopt its technologies (where's "Havok"? compare that to PhysX and CUDA).
while ATI's drivers still need some work they are loads better then they were 3 years ago...
Very cool. now all we need is these things to sell at a fair price. guess I'll be having to upgrade my motherboard to take advantage of this though.
I Agree 100% That's the solo REASON I LOVE NIVIDIA, There Driver's are amazing and easy to get, and install like a dream. Until AMD Can Step up there serves i wouldn't touch there Graphic's card, Im stuck with AMD motherboard right now and i need to install xp on my system just to update the bios, AND THAT is just sad Honestly.
That is very true, and with the new GPUs and new catalyst (custom profiles for each application FINALLY) perhaps we'll see more progress on that front.
