Regarding AMD's claim that they passed PCI-SIG compliance test performed by the PCI-SIG: 1. AMD selected the card to be tested. There's no guarantee the tested card was identical to reviewed or retail cards, unless the PCI-SIG requires re-testing every time a BIOS is updated, which I doubt. 2. Volkswagen diesels were programmed to detect when they were being emissions tested and to alter the operation of the engine so that they passed, and no one caught them at it for years. This has happened in the PC space too, with graphics drivers detecting that a benchmark was being run and switching to an optimized set of code for just that benchmark. I suggest people just wait to see what [H]ardOCP testing discovers. The delay won't kill you.
