Luck? Nothing about ATI has been about luck but rather bad luck. I'm sitting with a loss already. Let naysayers say WTF they want, ATI will recover. Wish Orton would stop screwing around. What worked with the 9700 and 9800 should continue to work today. Somebody's dropped the ball all to easily, and conveniently for nvidia's sake, that it makes no sense. Why the fu_ck did the margins drop 5% in the span of 1-2 months after the last CC? Who was steering the ship? Orton better have answers and good ones on Thursday.
Message to Piccioni: If you're worth the money you're getting paid, you better earn it by grilling the pants off Orton for answers to WTF happened with revenues and margins. You probably don't care all too much since you know the problems will eventually be resolved but don't you even want some vindication for your stance, for once?
