It's worthless because it cannot do PhysX

it actually has a GTS 250 chip under the hood, dedicated for PhysX, and ATI will be including a special driver from now on which prevents NVIDIA from disabling PhysX GPU if a none-NVIDIA primary GPU is detected. It's one of the 10.3 Catalyst driver features which is not getting much publicity.

Catalyst sucks because Nvidia's drivers are much better. I'm sure that Nvidia will blow away this card with the GTX680 which will be much cheaper and launched very soon.

I think also they have something up their sleeve; they are supposed to announce something today. Maybe they'll announce they skip releasing retail hardware based on Fermi hardware and go straight with Fermi˛

Best logic ever and it always works
A Ford Fiesta sucks because an Audi R8 is much better.
EDGE sucks because 3G is much better.
Linux sucks because Windows is much better.
You suck because I'm much better.
