Consider how that must seem to ATi-

They had plenty of stock of their 5770 and 5750- the high volume cards- for 10/12 weeks of Q4 2009.....and they LOST marketshare.

They had the DX11 high end all to themselves for all of Q4 2009, good stock for probably half of it......and they LOST marketshare.

They had a VERY strong line of DX10.1 cards competing against dwindling stocks of NVIDIA DX10 cards for all of Q4 2009.....and they LOST marketshare.

The poor slobs at ATi must be thinking "Did a gypsy curse us?!? Is Rollo really the devil?! Is our fanboy Shadow001 not posting the right FUD?!? We couldn't get people to buy our cards with a $100 bill taped to the box!!!"

Well,considering that Nvidia only made 131 million net profit for the 4th quarter of 2009 according to the investors report,which is far below what they usually make by a very large amount usually(about 400 million on average),i don't think they're all smiles right now,but that's just me.
