Graphics specialist ATI today posted its figures for the three months to 28 Feburary. The company said sales during the quarter were up 63 per cent on the same period a year ago, rising from $182 million to $297.2 million. Profits for the quarter, the second of the current fiscal year, were $39 million, up 45 per cent on Q2 1998. However, taking into account purchased in-process R&D and other charges, including the ongoing cost of ATI's purchase of sytem-on-a-chip developer Chromatic Research, the company's net income actually came to $21.7 million. But that's still way ahead of the profitability of ATI's rivals, such as nVidia. In it's most recent results, for Q4, ended 31 January, nVidia posted profits of $7.7 million on revenues of $65.5 million, though that represented in increase in sales of 178 per cent year on year. ATI's former arch-enemy, S3, lost $70.3 million on revenues of $41.5 million for its fourth quarter. ® See also nVidia revenues, profits way up S3's Q4, fiscal 98 losses widen ATI quick to Rage at WinHEC
