Despite the apparent omnipresence of Pci-Ex graphics cards in the market, the fact remains that a huge portion of sales for both nVidia and ATI still come from AGP cards. That's bad news for nVidia, who are going to be cut off from their supply of IBM's AGP bridges that nVidia requires to manufacture their cards. Will this give ATI a chance to make a run for a lower-end segment of the market, or even one last stab at a high-class AGP card for the few boards left? It's all up in the air right now, but nVidia can't be happy about this for sure. This also leaves other companies open to become a supplier for nVidia.
