    World economy may be at risk, but industry experts report that the graphics chip market is literally on fire. According to Jon Peddie Research (JPR), AMD's newly released credible video cards in both its desktop and laptop segments, led to the biggest increase in third-quarter shipments in six years. In the third quarter of 2008, more than 111 million GPUs were shipped, the market researcher said. During the same quarter last year, 91 million GPUs shipped, and 94 million units shipped in the previous quarter. That's an annual increase of 22.5 percent and a quarter-to-quarter increase of almost 18 percent, according to JPR. In the overall market AMD saw a good year-to-year growth of 22.8%, while NVIDIA lost 6.4% year-to-year. For desktop GPUs, AMD/ATI is also on the bright side claiming to 20.3%, while NVIDIA slipped to 32.6%, the other 43.9% of the portion are for Intel. On the laptop front, Intel GPU shipments dropped one point to 56.2 percent, while NVIDIA GPU shipments declined to 21.8 percent, and AMD jumped to 20.9 percent, JPR reported. It was about time and AMD desperately needed this good results, congratulations. ATI's graphics cards are temperately rising their share in the fight with rival NVIDIA.

    This will boost investor confidence and investments for AMD in general.

    Better performing cards, lower energy requirements and lower costs is a tried and tested way of boosting sales, other manufacturers really should take note, PR campaigns and comfusing numbering schemes really are out of date its the real numbers that count, Well done AMD.

    Oh no! How are we going to get our graphics cards if the entire graphic chip market has burned down? :(

    I guess malware is being sarcastic...RV770 heat issues :laugh: jk

    Yes, this has been the best of times for ATI since Radeon 9000 series. Everyone needs ATI to taste success. It's in the best interests of everyone, for there to be aggressive competition. It will save PC Gaming from being taken over by consoles.

    Even though my 8800gt does better in synthetic benchmarks than my 4850 (8800gt = soft vmod + decent overclock), The way NVidia has been playing games on the consumer...that's just wrong.

    ATI FTW!
