It seems that Radeon 8500 (Radeon 2) is going to available to us soon. Theoraticaly (from its specs), it appears to be better than the Geforce 3 and many of the benchmarks done (in Toms Hardware website) justify this. Can ATI finally cease nVidia's rule over the graphics industry?

the radeon 8500 is a bit better than gforce 3. but it also is going to initially cost the same as gforce 3. I'll probably get a radeon 7500 because i cant afford the newer card.

It will be cheaper, too. btw, I read somewhere that ati was going to start selling video chipsets for card manufacturers, just like nvidia. Is it true?

Yes, ATi is and will let other companies develop their own Radeon cards.. But Nvidia is giving card manufacturers a hard time about it.. They are threatening to not allow those manufacturers to make invidea cards if they start making ati cards.. So maybe only a few will be coming from other companies..

Heh, kinda reminds me of Intel and their bully tactics. I remember them doing the exact same thing with motherboard manufacturers wanting to produce Athlon mobos.
