Not true.
Why do you feel you are qualified to tell me that my statement is not true? Do you write drivers for Nvidia or AMD? We have now given you the actual hardware register numbers where alpha test is explicitly supported in the latest chips from both Nvidia and AMD, so you are obviously wrong. I know what I'm talking about, but you're just making claims that you can't back up.
Ouch! To Xmas, Eric isn't a noob and he knows his stuff. Maybe a bit more clarification on your part is needed...

I agree with Eric, IMO until we have a Alpha shader or whatever I would like to see alpha testing/blending kept around...
