ASUS Cheating Drivers

RIVA Station is reporting that ASUS is planning to release drivers for their AGP-V7700 and AGP-V7100 cards which have options for transparent textures, wireframe, and extra light. Yep, you don't have to rely on a 13-year-old 1337 haX0r anymore when a formerly reputable hardware manufacturer has done the cheating for you! Here's a press release:
Taiwan, Taipei July 18, 2000: ASUSTeK Computer, Inc. announces its new secrete weapon for AGP-V7700 and AGP-V7100 series graphics cards the 3D SeeThrough TM technologies. "ASUS always provides the best value for our customers." said Jonathan Tsang, vice president of marketing and sales division of ASUSTeK Computer Inc. "The ASUS 3D SeeThrough TM technologies are developed for users to be a constant winner in the adventure or action 3D games. There are three special weapons for ASUS VGA cards' users Transparent View, Wireframe View, and Extra Light. If you do not have an ASUS VGA card be careful! Never compete in the 3D games with anyone who has an ASUS VGA card. Because the only result is to loose"
Yes, there are a couple of typos in the PR. I didn't know if it was a Chinese to English problem, a Chinese to German to English problem (RIVA Station is a German site), or if the whole thing is a hoax. I looked for the PR on ASUSTeK's site but couldn't find it. If this is true, someone at ASUS needs his head examined. RIVA Station has posted screenshots from several games showing off the effects. Thanks Shugashack.
