    How's the performance of Color and Motion with the current ATi 4870 drivers? Heard reports performance was below what should be expected when the card was released. Has that changed?

    Be more specific. I just installed my 4870 and I love it. Only issue may come up though is that Photoshop doesn't have a profile for the graphics cards acceleration that I'm aware of. This also could be caused by me still using the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 that was installed in the Mac Pro.

    So far, as far as motion in videos, I have noticed a huge difference between my monitors (the primary being on the ATI and secondary being on the NVIDIA)

    When the 4870 first came out there were reports that in Motion (the FCS app) it was slower than lesser cards, and the blame was being laid on the drivers. I wanted to know whether the drivers had been updated and performance improved.
