As you all may know that Amd has delayed the R600(And subsequently the Rv610 and Rv630) For the second quarter. What does this mean for Amd? Is it Another nail in the coffin? Intel is going to start Making gpu's soon And Nvidia is already working on Fusion like chip(Which they ironically started with Amd) Both Scheduled for 08. Can Amd get their ass in gear in time? Can they get fusion to work in the time frame? And most importantly can Amd regain Market share?
AMD/ATi will be fine. R600 will come out, it'll be at least competitive with nVidia, and ATi will no-doubt regain some market share. They're just not going to be making anywhere near as much money as nVidia in the mean time.

People seem to be forgetting that there are more markets than just the enthusiast market. Right now AMD owns the $150, $175, and $200 price points, which is where most of your sales come from. They also absolutely destroy nvidia in the low-end market. But yes, the highest priced market is the enthusiast market, and nvidia is running away with it. ATI's got the x1950xtx out still, and it's checking in at the same price point as the 8800gts, which should thoroughly whoop its ass.

I know liquid but without the high end flagship product the rest of the company gets a bad rap. Look at the sales of the 8-series(400,000 as according to xbit labs) Do you think that Ati will be able to sell that many cards this late in the game? If Hector truely values Ati then he should'nt put up with this crap. Both ati and nvidia are fabless using tsmc to fill their orders so why the delays? I dont think it's really to fill orders and i dont think that there is a problem with the architecture, So why is Amd putting another nail into their coffin?
