That's my thinking pretty much exactly. nVidia is playing a very dangerous game right now by relying on their past reputation trying to fluff themselves up a bit, and I have a feeling it's just a house of cards they're building that is precarious as hell and will collapse in on 'em as soon as someone REALLY takes a look at what they're doing right now.
Well, the only time I actually see shareholders losing faith in nVidia is when their sales drop, which currently is not happening, and will not happen unless ATI continue to release products like the 9700 Pro, they need a consistant performance lead for a sufficient time for manufacturers of boards and computer systems to realize that ATI offerings are clearly the faster choice.
And trust me, nVidia wont be able to put manufacturers in their pockets when the manufacturer can choose a clearly faster product which will yield more sales.
