Video Card sales this month
Heres a quote from an article at DigiTimes
Due to different chip supply schedules, graphics card manufacturers in the ATI Technologies camp have been reporting strong sales for March, while companies in the opposing Nvidia camp said that they expect their sales to improve in April. With ATI releasing its Radeon 9800 (R350), Radeon 9600 (RV350) and Radeon 9200 (RV280) series chips in early March, card makers such as Gigabyte Technology and CP Technology have seen their graphics card sales continue to rise in March.
Sales of Nvidia-based graphics cards, however, have been hampered by overall chip supply. Though Nvidia unveiled its lower-end GeForce FX 5600 (NV31) and 5200 (NV34) chips in early March as well, volume shipments of NV31 and NV34 chips will not be available until April. Makers of Nvidia-based cards may face pressure even after chip supply improves. Manufacturers of ATI-based cards said they are planning to introduce updated products in April and May just as their competitors new products are reaching the channel.

I've been saying for a while now that ATi's sales would surpass Nvidia's early this year, that could change if nvidia releases some of those FX card they have been talking about since this time last year...
But what do they mean ATi will release 'updated products' in may? Are they talking about a 256mb series or will the 9900 actually be faster? Maybe they are just are just optimistcly predicting an early launch of r400, it's supposed to be out in june or july according to what I have heard but I didn't really expect it to be out until a little later (septemberish).Mobile XP2500@2700MHz 208x13 @2.0VDell Dimension 8100 P4 1.3

by "updated products", i think they mean the actual availability of the 9800, 9600. and 9200 on shelves in April/May, and possibly 256mb 9800
