ATI throws wobbler over prototype review
Maybe you shouldn't have sent it out then, guys
Poor old Chip. ATI is throwing its corporate weight around following the German site's review of a prototype Radeon graphics chip.
"As ATI has not released any boards for testing, your testing was done on a board obtained through irregular channels," bleats ATI.
Chip replies that if ATI considers its own German branch to be an "irregular channel", they are confident their results are all right as they tested it in the presence of an ATI representative.
ATI further claims that the version tested was at least two versions behind the Radeon that will eventually ship.
Daniel Wolff of Chip comments: "We always made it clear we used a prototype board: We used the word "prototype" more then ten times in a four page article - including the headline."
