No, I don't think so. I haven't seen his system physically.
Re the ATI comment... Very funny. In all seriousness, the AMD name improved on the already reasonably good ATI name for a while. I'm not sure that's the case today.
All through the past few decades one or another graphics company has been "on top". There was a time, many years ago, when I purchased only Matrox stuff for the engineering division I was running. At a different time nVidia rose to prominence, but they went to crap around 2005 or 2006. I recall $1,000.00+ workstation video cards that never worked right... But that's another story.
Then ATI was purchased by AMD and AMD must have infused some real talent and discipline into the development process, because their work was absolutely stellar, peaking (IMO) around 2010 and 2011. As I develop OpenGL accelerated software, I see more than the user's perspective, and there was real engineering quality in the ATI/AMD stuff, while nVidia seemed to have the smarts but allowed their Marketing people to influence the designs too much (leading to things like OpenGL functionality advertised as supported, but implemented in software instead of the GPU).
Now it seems that ATI/AMD must have lost some seasoned expertise in the software development area, or has allowed their engineering processes to slip into disarray. It's a real shame to see an organization who were able to deliver ever-improving quality while keeping up with the state of the art to now be unable to deliver new versions without breaking things, then be unable to fix customer reported problems across multiple major versions releases.
