Well NVIDIA can't be too happy that its Fermi chips have encountered another delay. The DirectX 11 compliant chipsets have been pushed back again reports DigiTimes. Comparable parts from ATI are expected in January or February.
The Fermi chipset was originally set to debut in November. All I can say is the video cards had better outperform the ATI counterparts or NVIDIA may be in big trouble.
If ATI can beat NVIDIA to market with the comparable GPUs that outperform the Fermi parts when they do finally show up, it could be a really good year for ATI and a chance for it to take back some market share. We will have to wait unit March to find out though.
