I like this. This is awesome! I'm glad my 460 is still up there. I WOULD be running a 6950, but it wasn't working well with my case.

I guess no one is rockin' with a 9600GT which I have in my HTPC. I might swap it for a less power hungry card.

yeah..... I find it interesting ..... coupla observations:

1. The 560 Ti will be "the" card remembered from 2011

2. nVidia dominated the upper cost categories in last gen / AMD the lower. historically consistent, no real surprise.

3. Big surprise for me was the fact that nVidia 6xx series caught up / surpassed AMD 7xxx despite the late start:

670 been around about 6 weeks
680 been around about 5 months

7970 been around about 8 months
7950 been around about 8 months
7870 been around about 5 months

4. Surprised the lower end 7xxxx series not making the charts yet .... peeps must be happy with their 5xxx and 6xxx series.

Or they just don't have Steam or something. Because I have recommended countless 7750's and 6670's. Much more than the 6xx series.

Well Steam is used by gamers and we are talking about gaming cards. I can't really see an argument that Steam game users are different statiscally from any other gaming subgroup.
