    Have ATI improved their Opengl performance or are they still lagging behind? Some games do have Opengl ie Lock On Modern Air Combat and I don't want to see juddery performance from a X1900XT.

    They're still behind Nvidia, but it improves, think it did a great leap in catalyst 5.13.

    It still sucks coding-wise, but they have a new fangled memory controller now which makes them look a lot less crap when memory bandwidth comes into play.

    Don't suck at all now, well x1800/x1900 range doesnt. :)

    They are behind Nvidia again, but when they first fixed the OpenGL performance they were faster than Nvidia, but Nvidia have gone ahead again with new drivers, but seen as drivers are getting released all the time, it will go backwards and forwards, so they are both great at doing OpenGL now. :)
