Kind of thought all gaming/video card enthusiasts, by now, would know using 3DMark to support a performance claim would put them in the same light as someone running through the forums naked, chasing a golf ball, and yelling, "Someone grab my ball!".

I mean,..how much sillier could you look?

On topic: Only a lunatic CEO would announce performance numbers that were over the top. When I made the remark about OEM sales, I was referring to the computer manufacturers.
During the next 3 months is the same time frame they would be placing orders for product to ship before Christmas. ATI has announced many design wins with OEM manufacturer's, so it is not unreasonable to think that a large portion of the projected gain would be from this. Afterall, they would already have a good idea of the number of product they are going to ship.
