lolz, does that mean AMD are the perceived 'winners' of this perennial pi$$ing contest, even though they have also lost a megawad of money for the last few quarters(and then some)??
Fermi hasn't been a compelling product for various reasons. Heat/power draw/performance. I definitely haven't felt the need to upgrade from my 295. I'll see what the 28nm kit turns out like next year.
I think a lot has to be said for the effect of the console market too, the new variants of the PS3 and Xbox360 have sold bucketloads. Heck even *I* have a 360 now. Considering titles like RDR or FFXIII don't make it to PC, or titles that do make it get their late+DRM(like AC2), I'm sure I'm not the only 'pc gamer/enthusiast' type that has jumped into consoles this year.
