    What is this article for?

    These cards have been around for ages. Why only now do you review them?

    He does have a bit of a point though, I bought my Sapphire X1900XT (same one in the review) on 24/01/2006 from Scan which is nigh on 5 months ago..

    Review system glitch, or just a backlog?

    So anyway why dont you guys review the brand new nVidia Geforce 2 MX next.

    Im sorry but in the article it makes it out like these cards have just come to retail. Im only having a laugh.

    in any event, the reason it's published late was primarily related to this issue, and please know we've one other related article to publish in the coming days.

    believe me, for a lot of good reasons, if we could've published earlier - and in fact we had these, and other such products long before anyone else in any geography - then we would have.

    so, i'm very sorry it's late guys, i really am.

    and please know that we've changed internal policy to prevent our all being screwed around to anywhere near the same extent.

    cheers,

    PD
    I was attempting to bypass that and get to the point he raised in the first place tbh.

    It might be worth amending that review to highlight the fact about the motherboard logic issues, otherwise it does look like we're just being very tardy with reviews nearly 5 months late.. and we'd have a bunch more people like that using the right2reply feature to question why the review is so behind
