ATI Talks About Mac Products
11:02 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
MacGamer had a brief chat yesterday afternoon with Stan Ossias, Senior Product Manager for the Macintosh Desktop Marketing Group at ATI Technologies, asking questions about the status of their upcoming Radeon 8500 and Radeon VE and about the recent furor over application-specific driver tweaks.
Here's a sample of what Ossias had to say about the Radeon 8500:
We are committed to introducing it; it's the time that's in question. I can't confirm the specific details in question, but the general capabilities of the chip are already reported at MacGamer, so they are still relevant. Our internal benchmarks show that we outperform the GeForce3 across the board on Mac OS 9 and OS X. We've very comfortable this will be the fastest performing chip when it's shipped. The new NVIDIA product isn't too intimidating, based on the specs of the product we have. We have a strong Mac development team behind it, so we have a really good solution. It won't be wanting for anything.Head over to MacGamer for the rest of this short interview, and be sure to check out IMG's coverage of ATI's upcoming video cards.
