No no, not at all. Basically, AMD or Nvidia come up with the design for a card, from there manufacturers like XFX or Asus take the reference cards and adjust them or make improvements on them. Sometimes, they don't really change them at all!

^^^ bang on.

For many of the cards that different makes come out with, the only difference is the sticker. Sometime they create a new cooler for it or offer pre-overclocked versions, but the card generally stays the same.

Agree, basically they're the same, manufacturers only add their own cooler, play with clock (factory overclocked) and warranties. The rest is just about the same. :)

The actual cards are manufactured by a few OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) who basically slaps on the sticker of the various brand names out there. Two such ATI card manufacturers are PC Partners (the parent company of Sapphire) and Pine Tech (the parent company of XFX).

ATI/Nvidia make the GPU's themselves, I think the various vendors(brands as you called them) just change the types of memory on the card, type of cooler, and video out puts. I may be partially wrong, but I think that's how it works.

ATI or NVIDIA come up with the reference cards that the brands then make copies of using their cooler, memory or just a new sticker. They'll often tinker with the bios etc to release factory OC cards.
