ATI missed a lot of opportunities in 2007 but it still managed to shape up and win some market share back, but it looks like 2008 is its year. Some sources close to the company have told Fudzilla that the company will be back in mobile market as well as in OEM business this year.
Nvidia gain a lot of that share but ATI is again faster with process transition and 55 nanometre parts will fit really nicely in mobile chips. There will be a lot of new ATI chips to accommodate Penryn Santa Rosa refresh systems and it looks good even for the next cycle, at least this is what our sources believe.
When it comes to high end ATI has a chance with R670 aka. dual RV670 card but it is still not clear whether ATI can win against Nvidia's D8E dual G92 part that comes at the same time.
The R700 is their new hope.
