Kyle at the cold, HardOCP has outdone himself with a very close look at ATI's Radeon 8500. He tackles the card's (darn near inevitable coming from ATI) driver problems, looks into its driver issues, then dissects the 8500's driver incompatibilites.
Oh yeah, he also tests performance.
Then there's the issue we just raised about ATI monkeying with clock speeds on OEM cards. Kyle provides a little more evidence that our sources were right about the OEM 8500 clock speeds.
All in all, this is a must-read review for those of you contemplating a high-end video card purchase. Go check it out.
