Buying tons of ATI case badges for future amd gpu's. It sucks that they're phasing out ATI's legacy of awesomeness but I understand where they're coming from from a business standpoint.

That's fine by me. The GPUs are important, not the name on it. Besides, under AMD's rule, it seems ATI GPUs really stepped up their game, becoming a real contender, and then ending up with a majority of market share?

It's not like it's the first time ATI has had more discrete gpu market share than nvidia...

ATI had most of the market share in early 2000 with the Radeon 9 series (9200/9600/9800). In a time where all Nvidia could do was put "Nvidia - The Way It Is Meant To Be Played" in the title screen of every AAA PC game made, ATI were actually selling like hotcakes thanks to early adoption of DX9, SM2 and OpenGL. ATI then took a break almost thinking the success of the 9 series would follow through to the X series of cards which didn't happen and Nvidia dominated for a good 5 years until now.

Even before then ATI had been one of the major players, going almost unoposed in the late 80's. Nvidia wasn't even why ATI lost it's place as king, it was Intel with their integrated graphics. Then the added competition from nvidia drained them from there.
