ATI's partners weren't really impressed with the way the company presented the R600 at CeBIT, FUD Zilla reports:
ATI partners are super concerned about R600 and the whole RV630 generation. They all feel that R600 is no more a performance leader and they know that Nvidia has something even faster to top their performance.
Being seven months late doesn’t help you to bring the confidence in the performance leadership especially when Geforce 8800 is doing so well.
Ruby dancing on the show was looking good and fine but it just deepened the feeling that ATI is losing versus G80 and therefore you are not suppose to run anything on that machine.

They'd better demonstrate something soon or even the buyers will lose faith. People are really wanting the refresh of the G80, because it's expected to be both faster and maybe a touch cooler and more efficient. If people are able to actually buy Nvidia's refresh product at or ahead of the release of ATI first gen DX10 product, that is going to point a LOT of consumers to Nvidia's side. I'm sure Nvidia knows this and is not going to wait for ATI as they will happily one up them in the marketplace.
ATI seems aptly a part of AMD. Both these companies better take serious steps forward or the market will leave them behind.
