Update: We've learned from industry sources that Mr. Jerry Vogel actually left AMD almost two years before be was hired by Nvidia so they didnt really steal him of AMD and that even Mr Phil Eisler left AMD six month prior being hired my Nvidia. That casts a different shade to this picture all together.
Then again, AMD and nVidia aren't direct competitors. Only AMD/ATi and nVidia are. That's just one part of the big company.
The ATI division is the only part of AMD that is not hemorrhaging (they have made one quarter slightly profitable since aquirement), unfortunately any profit it sees is sucked up by the rest in a heartbeat. Don't forget that nvidia is not limited to graphics as well and recently entered a market that AMD really isn't present in with the Tegra, nvidia still dominates the workstation place and absolutely pummels AMD/ATI (marketshare) in the new GPGPU segment.
