By the time either of them get a purpose built chip on to shelves, the BTC mining HARDWARE market will be gone, as their value will be equal to the power required to mine them.

ATI is just lucky to have the right hardware architecture for mining, pure and simple.

That being said, I've spent $3000 this month on ATI cards, so they already have my money...  Grin

His point is that nvidia or ati would inject a lot of money to stimulate demand for their products. By my calculations based on Mtgox's pending asks's (using my own Python script), $171,129 spent on Bitcoins would shoot the price up to $49/bitcoin. If this creates enough additional demand for $171k of graphics cards then it pays off for them.

Only 128MB? Would that be good?

It would be more than enough for mining and driving a monitor.

There have been a few times when I wondered if the person who originally started bitcoin worked at ATI.  "lets make something awesome that only our cards are good at...."

Contemplating the powers of BitCoin.

No.

There were no GPU miners from the beginning on.

ASICs are theoretically much better in mining efficiency and are just too expensive to produce in smaller quantities.
