    Aren't all HD2000 series cards defective, in that their performance is woeful, they draw an obscene amount of electrical power, and they are quite handsomely put to shame on all fronts by their nVidia counterparts? :D

    Maybe they have a short circuit across half the pipes - would explain the horrendous power draw and underperformance!

    Well, the lower HD2000 cards that were supposedly having these issues actually use less power then the nVidia cards, but yes, their performance is as much of a let down as the 8600/8500 series of cards are. I hope that the mid-range comes back to life in the next generation.
