You still get gpu acceleration just not as much =p and it would be a ATI listed on their site just like nvidia it's a limited pool.

Please increase the size of the legend. It is easy to figure out in this review since it's only two colors, however, if it is more than 2, it is hard to figure out which bar is referring to which score.

Please consider changing the page drop-down menu to the old school drop-down menus like the other tech blogs like Anandtech and Arstech, etc.

The interface is a little clumsy and seems to be poorly timed when I try to scroll down the drop-down menu. It often closes when I am trying to scroll to another page. Sometimes, when the page loads, it is hidden by a pop-up word ad.

However, the article content was strong.

I have an ATI card and still I have no problem using photoshop CS4 and premiere CS4. The thing with CS5 is that if you can't wait at all, but it is not that really long.

Surely they mean the 2GB memory limit (for Win32 processes)?

Which is one reason why the Apple Mac version is so popular (Unix/BSD can handle more per process).

[citation][nom]adiomari[/nom]why cuda and not open-cl?!![/citation]

CUDA preceded Open-Cl. Dev cycles are long and tedious. If you're going to implement something, it'll take time to show up. I honestly hope more developers decide to code for Open Cl.

Not a fanboy? Just pointing out, someone blind enough to say something is far superior to something else that, well, really isnt superior by much, or at all, should be corrected. Calm down. Your not a mod just yet ;)

That was an AMD fanboy reply to an Nvidia fanboy statement. The fact that I pointed this out and you want to complain that it wasn't a fanboy opinion shows how you can't take criticism. You could have easily ignored him, and thumbed him down where he would be marked as spam/hidden message. Because you know mouse will randomly come in here and explain why he thinks your statement is wrong, and you know he will based on past occurences.
You never corrected him in the first place, but randomly said "as a space heater." [Appropriate emoticon that I can't find]

You can easily enable the GPU acceleration on other nVidia cards that aren't automatically supported. Instructions here: http://www.indiev.org/?p=308

It should be noted that if you're doing serious Adobe CS work these days, windows is the only way to fly. There's still no "mac edition" gtx 480, so you'll be stuck with a slower g200 card on mac.

Then you'll get no GPU acceleration. If you use the Adobe suite, you'll have to decide which is more important. Your desire to use an ATI card, or the time you'll save by going nVidia. This works even on a sub $100 gt240 btw.
