Vista computers to have five performance tiers, not two, says ATI executive. Oh great! Just what we need, more numbered confusion. I fear this is an attempt to dumb down the whole specification side of computing to such a degree so that people can be spoonfed rubbish. I'm a geek and I'm totally confused. What about Joe Public? No hope at all!

As a fellow geek, I can see your point though, it does seem like *dumbing down*.
