Nvidia claims ATI has flickering problem too

Sheesh! Kebabbed!

A VERY HIGH officer at Nvidia that we won't name told the INQUIRER that ATI cards have the same flickering problem that its cards apparently have.

(See Nvidia FX5900 suffers strobing, flickering claim).

That's something we haven't confirmed with ATI yet.

The same officer said Nvidia is aware of flickering on their cards but he didn't tell us what the fix was. And we forgot to ask. [What is there about a pink slip you don't understand, Fudo? Ed.]* µ

At one time I had a Diamond S540 video card and it was a @#$%^ to work with and get running right. I had to install the 4-in-1 drivers, then Direct-X, and then run GLSetup in order for the card to see 2X AGP. Fortunately I no longer have that board(FIC PA-2013) or vid card anymore.
