    Seems fair enough, they brought out competitive products and this is the reward. Can only be good for us consumers too!

    AMD do great value products. Single card eyefinity is always apositive, they're working on 3D (if anyone cares), phyx alternative, and their drivers are very good if a little annoying with rapid releases. Couple that with their CPU side ie. APU's and a chipset buisness they really have a great positive future with an entire platform.

    Nvidia do great cards too but when SLI is needed for NVsurround, conisdering that AM3 SLI boards are as rare as Apple products on bit-tech (they did review the ipad....kinda, and mac vs PC builder) forcing you into a high end intel build which dictates what you use and even what games you p[lay since SLI and NVsurround require to set sof drivers to work. Ultimately the biggest market is budget cards and Nvidias "we can caharge more for CUDA and extra features" doesnt work in that segment simply because the cards aren't fast enough to use those features, and its a segment where simply price/performance ratio wins.

    THe only thing that made me go with Nvidia is folding and it won't be long before AMD sorts that.....hopefully

    Is Nvidias market share down to the uninformed and bundled GPUs? I was under the impression that ATI/AMd have been bringing out better cards for a good while now.

    Disclaimer: The last time I took an active interest in GPU performance was when I got my 4870.

    How does this translate into profits though?

    What I want to know is who's in "Others"? As far as I know, only Nvidia and AMD make discrete graphics cards.

    There's also Matrox, though I think they specialise in 2D multiple display cards.

    40% for the Red team eh? Good - Nvidia can't afford to get cocky.

    ...as this time last year the market share was 5% lower, but the stock was up 20%.

    That's probably not what you meant, though...:D

    1yr figures for AMD show only a very small increase of 3% in share price. Compared to Nvidia showing more like a 39% increase. Whose shares would you rather have had?

    That SHOULD be sorted out soon. Quite a few of the new AM3+ Boards SHOULD (can't confirm things which haven't been fully released yet) ship with SLI enabled after a partnership between Nvidia and ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI.

    should be but that future event doesn't relate to past figures. Nvidia really missed a beat with AM3 and to a point AM2+. From memory nforce LGA775 boards weren't too hot either.

    Revenue down due to average selling price being depressed due to competition.
    Lets hope bulldozer amazing so the same happens in the processor and motherboard market.
