In what will probably be the biggest news of the day, pending if Aliens don't invade us, VisionTek will be switching to the ATI line of graphics chips over nVidia for their line of graphics cards over the next 6 months, as we saw in a press release recently sent to us. VisionTek had always been closely associated with nVidia, but they go on to say, "when we looked at the technology available from both suppliers, both at present and what's coming over the next nine months, we felt we owed it to our loyal gamers to make the switch to ATI...".
This is a big call; ATI must have some nice products planned over the next 9 months. I guess that means no VisionTek NV30 folks.
