    Not that I have a vested interest in this but AMD better release something spectacular or they're dead in the water. nVidia are going to have the market locked off before AMD can even begin to sell parts. ATi workers must be pretty bummed that AMD brought their bad mojo with them.

    I wouldnt quite say that the ATI part of AMD is going to turn into 3dfx just yet
    If their next product they comes out with is fairly solid, they should be ok, although at the rate the market moves they really do need to release somthing soon.

    The 8800 series is a solid though. Perhaps AMD had issues they couldnt overcome? - A bad product can be worse than no product somtimes!

    I hope they bring out the r600 series next month or Nvidia are going to have another customer for the 8800 series.

    Agent is bang on the money......ATI would be much better off releasing nothing, rather then releasing the new Voodoo 6

    Although it really is starting to look like the AMD/ATI merger was either ill-conceived or its taken them a while to get the new operation into full-swing.....and seeing as they themselves are mostly responsible for the AMD/ATI and Intel/nVidia divide, you would think they would have pulled out the stops to swing people to their products.

    At the moment it seems that the Intel/nVidia route is a no-brainier for anyone who wants performance. AMD/ATI is almost a bargain-bin brand, they really need a big win and soon.

    AMD have more or less skipped a manufacturing step though - they hit 80nm chips before Nvidia with the X1950pro and x1650 and rather than dwell on it they've gone straight to 65nm. That and the merger have hurt them in the top end market prestige, but they don't care about that so much - it's the low range chips that bring in most of the money and how much they bring in is more about manufacturing costs than anything else.

    If OEMs can buy AMD chips cheaper than NVidia chips, those will sell more.
