They live in fear that nVidia will walk away from the market, leaving them with nothing to run but that new Intel chipset.
Has ATI/AMD vanished from this universe? I recently bought an X850XT which
does 3D nicely with free drivers (also tried an X800GTO and an X550 successfully). ATI are pretty bad nowadays, but at least they gave us the info for the R200, and AFAIK this then helped with the R300 and R400 (don't buy R500 (X1xxx), though).
Also, I would expect the film people to do all their rendering in software, no need for 3D hardware.
