    Relative to what? I'm surprised it's even on there at all. It actually has a higher uptake than a lot of cards that are much cheaper.

    ONLY if you just count cards installed on Vista solely. [DirectX 10 Systems (Vista with DirectX 10 GPU)] chart.

    Include DX10 cards that are also sold to users that don't use Vista and pretty much everything is doing better than it. [DirectX 10 GPUs] chart.

    Not sure that's such a bad thing to do. It is the most expensive card on the market by a good bit. Vast majority of buyers should be running the latest and greatest.

    No problem, I've just rebranded an old FX5200 PCI card to a Geforce G52 and it runs super-duper now.

    Not here. I jumped to 64bit with Vista during RTM and haven't looked back. Now I'm running Win7 RC.

    I hate to say it, but XP 32bit is dead along with AGP. ;)

    I'm pretty sure my parents won't be upgrading any time soon.

    Yup. I use the Windows box for gaming and some scanning/image manipulation, and I've got an expensive peripheral that is happy that way. Besides, Vista doesn't do anything for me, and I can't see Windows7 being attractive until I feel compelled to go beyond 4GB of RAM on my PC box which looks a long way off. Of course, I've got other OSs in the house, just not from Microsoft.

    As far as game support goes, the overwhelming majority of gamers are still running DX9 level systems, and I can't see developers turning their back on that part of the market for the forseeable future.

    Wow! Radeon 4800 Series is storming the chart with over one percent gain in the overall share. ;)

    Go AMD!!! :) I wonder how the chart might change in October/November/December with Christmas, Windows 7 and Direct X 11 coming out? Will we see AMD take great strides in terms of market penetration?

    R770 will pass 8600 next month and it looks like it will have 10%+ market share by the time R8x0 rolls in. Not a bad generation for AMD it seems.

    I am glad ATI is doing great...this coming from a guy with a history of Nvidia only cards on his desktop.

    Definitely. I own Vista64 but wouldn't touch it with a stick. Also my Cubase and the apps that go along still don't work fine in 64 bit, so it's a no-brainer.
