Uhm...question on frontpage story "Trouble for ATi in Korea"
 
You listed this story about troubles for ATi in Korea, but when I was reading the very short blurb about it I got all confused:

Quote:

I was pointed out to a page on a Korean site that has some interesting news, stating that the companies in Korea that are manufacturing ATI-based video card manufacturers are considering leaving ATI due to decreasing sales. Sales have dropped around 40-50% in July, which includes the GeForce FX 5600 128MB video cards.
The bolding is mine, but why are they talking about the GF FX 5600 as an ATi card?

That's what I'm thinking too as it would make a WHOLE lot more sense to me that way, but I don't speak Korean. :(

I'm korean. so I can read korean :)

I'll tell the truth..

yes. Ati is in trouble in korea..

manufacturers of ati gfx card are considering to sale factory

because, do you know NC soft?

,publisher and developer of on line game 'lineage',

sells ASUS dual DVI fx5600 at special price for USD120 to promote

their new 3d game 'lineage2'

so sales of ati card drops significantly..

but that's not whole reason..

historically, 'geforce' has dominant marketing name value in korea..

take look at the retail market share table..

all of oem PC have nv based gfx card and

gf4ti 4200 is NO.1 retail card :eek:
