We have been building Graphics cards for many years now and have worked with every major graphics chip company over the years and seen and been involved in the amazing progression and rise of GPU - So we have always embraced new technology and will continue to do so.
We are all excited at XFX about this development as we can see benefits to all sides but most importantly we want to deliver this benefit to our customers by offering them a real choice whether they want to purchase an Nvidia or ATI based graphics card we want to deliver to them simply the best graphics card for their budget and for their requirement, be it raw performance or HD Video transcoding for work or for play.
