ATI lowers product warranties

I just got informed ATI has decided to lower their product warranties as of August 31. ATI's products now only have one year of warranty, except the FireGL and FireMV family for workstations which is only lowered to three years.
ATI warrants to the original purchaser of the hardware product, that the product is free from defects in materials or workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase at retail. If this product is a Workstation product such as ATI’s FireGL or FireMV family of products, ATI warrants to the original purchaser of the hardware product, that the Workstation product is free from defects in materials or workmanship under normal use and service for a period of three (3) years from the date of purchase at retail. All cables and accessories provided with an ATI product are warranted to be free from defects in materials or workmanship under normal use and service for a period of for (90) ninety days from date of purchase at retail.
For products purchased prior to August 31, 2005 the warranty period depends on the product. Radeon 7000 and newer products have a three year warranty. DV Wonder cards have a two year warranty. The Remote Wonder has a one year warranty. All other ATI products have a five year warranty.

This also means new products like ATI's upcoming Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 will only have a one year warranty. Looks like ATI has great confidence in their products.
