While the merge between AMD and ATI had its effect on ATI’s shipments of integrated graphics processors particularly for Intel central processing units, another reason for the company’s market share declines is late time-to-market with products like Radeon X1950 Pro and Radeon X1650 XT, which are superior than Nvidia’s competing offerings, which allowed Nvidia to enjoy design wins with leading computer makers and in retail channel throughout the whole third quarter."
Hmm thats bad, but read the next paragraph, stop being lazy and click to check it out.

I say AMD needs better advertising for all their products and/or beat nvidia to the punch. Nvidia is good at doing speedy releases which wins the hearts of the OEMs and consumers. Former ATI was always late, and even when their final products were slightly superior, first impressions last with consumers, and OEMs are very reluctant to make a second big investment

I think it's to bad. I like AMD (i just have the rig I do because a simaler sempron cost $100 more for a mobo CPU combo) And i like nvidia. I think AMD should have bought nvidia, remember when they actully started talks with nvidia about it? they would have kicked ass together. ATI was a bad choice.

Eh?? Nvidia (as a company) is too expensive, and ATI (as a company) cost alot less and usually outperforms Nvidia's offerings (as in high-end products), albeit they are a few months later (ATI is suffering from that now)... But now AMD will have some true 1st party complete system offerings.

Watch, nVidia is going to be sued by AMD, because when you can compete, sue 'em!

Their new motto: Aim low!

ATI usually outperforms Nvidia's offerings?

How so?

Its been a recent trend on the high-end, although they havent released their now fabled R600.

The X1900XTX beats the 7900GTX, X1800XT beat the 7800GT.

Although it may not be by much, it still beat it, but they are too late to the ballgame.

Suppose I should specify on my last post, editting .

I don't think Nvidia would be sued by AMD/ATI. Personally the R600 itself blows the 8800GTX out of the water, period.

AMD/ATI have developed products with quality and quantity, and by that I'm a bought out customer, and I really don't care about what Nvidia has out now.
They may be cheap, and a lot of people buy what they have

Even if they are gaining the upper advantage over ATI/AMD, things will surely change by the release the R600
The R600 uses less wattage, cost less, and performs better, and by that it's going in my new rig.

Just wait till 2007...so I can actually make a factual opinion.

Have there been actual benchies of the R600 to substantiate any of these claims?

I'm not trying to sound like a prick or anything but I haven't seen any action shots of the R600. Anyone have links to architecture or benchies info?
