Where did you get this info about about "ATI having 65% of the market share"? If that's the case I should start soon cheering up for NVIDIA.

According to the latest Jon Peddie Research it is 40%
AMD's new line not only took back some market share--jumping up to 40 percent from 35 percent the quarter prior--it forced Nvidia (and partners) to cut prices on its recently released GTX 200 series product," JPR said.
The above figure is only for discrete graphics card market in overall GPUs for desktop the ATI is distant third.
For desktop GPUs, Intel increased its first place position to a 43.9 percent share, while Nvidia's position slipped to 32.6 percent, and AMD climbed to 20.3 percent, JPR said.
Before AMD's acquisition the ATI was always close second in this market segment. The ATI still has one the best integrated graphics chip but now only for the AMD platform.

PS I wish people would stop all the personal attacks in this thread, it's really not much to learn from and it doesn't make anybody look better than the other, at least to me.
