If it's not gonna use the regular driver packages, I'd think the chances are good it's not based on Gx00 chipset. Looks like we may finally be getting new hardware! :)

sort of logical since the Gx00 series weren't GPU's and the Parhelia is supposed to be a GPU.

Nice one, John ! :)

It seems to me that this is a definite confirmation that a card is coming ! :cool:

Could you trick him into telling when ? :D

Initially, it won't be the same driver package. Perhaps later on, we may do a unified driver but it's still undecided on that.

Good, I wouldn't have wanted to hear the comments if Haig had said that "since the drivers are 98% binary compatible with the G550 family, support will be included in our unified driver package from day one" :D

This probably means that scanning through drivers with a hex editor won't provide too many clues ... damn :)
