That happened back in February, Darth.

If you check the 6-month trending graph that I posted above, the stock did not begin its decline until mid-latter April after Fermi released and Nvidia downgraded its guidance going into next quarter.

And although Nvidia is in a few different sectors (workstation graphics, smart phones, etc) the "gaming" GPU market still makes up a significant portion of Nvidia's net income. Do you not think that if they had released a GPU that's been as widely sold as 5870 that it would've made a difference? AMD netted nearly 300 million in net income last quarter due to its GPU sector, about 30% of its overall earnings for the quarter.
