If current trends are anything to go by, it won't at all.

Fanism is just plain stupid. I'm neither an AMD fan nor an Nvidia fan (I'm more of an Asus and eVGA fan, to be honest) and AMD fans need to stop ****ting on constantly about the HD4870. IT's a GREAT card, but it is NOT the BEST card.
I'll second the eVGA part...I could really care less whether I use nvidia or ATI/AMD. I've always used which ever card gave me the best performance in my price range, but eVGA has really stood out from the rest from a company stand point.

That was the case for the X1000 cards and now the HD 4000 cards, but not for the HD 2000 or HD 3000 cards.

Why are you guys even try to argue about this?

Thanks to ATI, we don't have to shell out cash to rip-off cards (GTX 280) and ATI proved that by offering a card that performs extremely similar to the GTX 280 itself at a lower cost. (4870) If ATI didn't make those cards and admitted defeat this round, we would expect Nvidia to raise the prices on those cards, and.. you get the point.

While I understand the point the article is trying to make, I think the title should be more along the lines of "ATI has finally decided to show up" not "lets thank ATI". It was ATI's lack of competition that allowed nvidia to take control of the market in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted to see ATI back in the game and spark some competition. It's only good news for the consumers.

It's true, I think the PC gaming industry needs a little shake up hardware wise. It costs significantly more to game on a PC than a console. While you can do much more on the PC and games can look better, it kind of boggles your mind when a single video card costs significantly more than the latest console. If the PC game market wants to be more competitive with consoles, costs definitely need to change.

That being said, lets give nVidia some credit here. They haven't done us that bad. Sure their top end cards are overpriced and ATI really pulled the carpet from under them this time, but nvidia has also helped in bringing some value to the table. Think about 8800GT or the 9600 series? Those cards offered excellent value with performance close to that of the 8800GTX. Even the 9800GTX is a good example. Everyone was disappointed because it wasn't the card we were hoping for, but it gave access to top-end performance at a mid-range price.

Nvidia's been on top so long, I think people are just happy to finally see them stumble. I doubt if the same thing happened to ATI, would we have people mocking ATI or thanking nvidia.

I don't have to thank ATi. Hell, I don't need to thank Nvidia.
I payed $300 for each 8800GTX and Im happy as hell. 2 year investment and it still plays all games just dandy.

I dont need companies TELLING me what to choose. I'll choose on my own.

And, I was going to go ATi next round. Still think I will. But these kinds of things just annoy me.

Actually, I disagree. ATI didn't write that article, and from what I've been reading have been pretty humble with their offerings.

However, you can thank ATI for providing Nvidia some competition in the performance market. The next 2 year investment you make will be much cheaper now.

Once I graduate and have a good job, I can tell you now, I won't be splashing out on the best of everything, because the part I love about building a system is getting the balance just right between performance and price.

Now earlier you mentioned you don't care about price. And I believe someone else posted saying performance to performance should only be considered. Well I'm afraid 99.9% of the world's population DOES care about the price, and you'd have to be extremely ignorant to not get that.

I pity those so unfulfilled with themselves that they feel the necessity to purchase products to temporarily boost fulfillment. That is all.
Exactly.....the rich stay rich by frugality and wise investments.....not blowing their income on expensive products. Why do you think that rappers go bankrupt within a few years of their popularity? MC Hammer anyone?

The 8800 gt was only made to counter the 2900 pro, if the 2900 pro was never made then nvidia would never have released the 8800 gt

But ATI still haven't made a faster card than nvidia yet...
