I planned on removing lower resolutions from our testing but with the performance caliber of these cards, it was important not to remove them as the performance varied greatly at 640x480 and 800x600 pixel resolutions.

It turned out that my S2000 board didn't care to work with our test platform so after hours of wasted time trying to get it to running, it was removed from the testing. I have had nothing but major hassles with this board in the past when testing on the various platforms. It's unfortunate that we have already lost a competitor but I'm much happier weeding out a troublesome board instead of having you do it at the cost of your hard earned money.
