And ya, Ati stock has almost tripled since the beginning of March.

What I'd like to know is, how they expect 40% growth for the next quarter? Thats a pretty serious jump. Is it thier intel chipset coming out thats expected to do it?

Very interesting horse race, it just never stops.

Would a card that performs at 9700 Pro levels retailing for $200us be a factor in that expectation?

ATi is planning on working it's way down the marketshare foodchain, they're just doing it from the top down while nVidia is doing it the other way 'round.

As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
