    I guess they used up every integer that marketing was capable of assigning to a product... they've come full circle back to the original Radeon 7000 from 11 years ago. Reply

    Is that a prediction of performance? That were good times for ATI (now AMD). Their 7000 series kicked NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5000 series ass. The GeForce FX 5000 were the first to be dual-slot (FX 5800 Ultra for example, hot card) while ATI maintained single slot design and more performance. Reply

    Sounds like you're referring to Radeon 9700 and sibblings. The Radeon 8500 looked good compared to Geforce 3 Ti 200, but couldn't keep up with Geforce 4. And Radeon 7500 was.. a nice attempt.

    9700 Pro was my first AMD card and absolutely loved it to bits. Reply

    Wonder, if we can expect 50%+ performance increase in the same class compared to today's solutions. Reply
