Riva3D heeft een reaktie gepost op de meest recente samenzweringstheorie van ome Tom, met ditmaal AMD in het pakje van de boze boef (eerder werden o.a. Intel en 3dfx door Tom in deze positie geschoven). Volgens Tom worden bugs bewust door AMD achterhouden en worden bugfixes gepresenteerd als nieuwe features (Super Bypass). Riva3D beweert het tegenovergestelde, namelijk dat de bugs (in dit geval GeForce AGP problemen) bekend waren bij de moederplank fabrikanten, maar dat Tom dit niet heeft opgemerkt vanuit zijn tempel :
To suggest that the Super-Bypass feature was a bug-fix is bullcrap. Neither AMD nor NVIDIA detected any problem with the Irongate (751) chipset and GeForce cards in their own internal testing. Nor did I when running benchmarks when we first reviewed the GeForce last year. It wasn't until end-users began reporting problems that the issue even came to light. As a result, software methods of fixing the problem were explored as it seemed that a software fix was possible. Why? Because the Irongate AGP line noise issue does not manifest itself in every combination of motherboards and GeForce cards. I know this for a fact, since one of our systems shows the problem, while the other does not. The GeForce being susceptible to AGP line noise has nothing to do with AMD. Did he ever stop to think that excessive AGP line noise can be caused by erratic AC power or house wiring, or a myriad of other things? There's so many variables that could account for the difference in some systems functioning without a hitch while others do not that to blame it on any one issue is absurd. Tom could have rightly called it a bug if NO VIDEO CARDS worked in 2x AGP, but unfortunately for him, the GeForce has been the only card exhibiting any difficulties.
