single-processor chipset. This will be NVIDIA’s first HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, compatible chipset and a successor to the current

will support AMD’s socket AM2 and HT3 enabled AM2+. Socket AM2+ will house AMD’s upcoming
Unlike the nForce 590 SLI, the upcoming
is a single-chip solution similar to the previous nForce 3-series, mainstream nForce 4-series and nForce 500-series. It will also offer a small footprint and have low power consumption.
will also be NVIDIA’s first PCIe 2.0 equipped chipset, making it ideal for next-generation PCIe peripherals and graphics cards. Other notable

Your DirectX generation listing need some corrections.
Winner: nVidia GeForce -->
The Geforce (256) had no real competition at that time. The Geforce 2 was already out when the Radeon came.
Loser: ATI Radeon/Radeon 7000
DX9 SM1: -->
There's no such thing as DX9 SM1 only video cards. Both the Radeon 9700PRO and the GeForce FX5800U were SM2.0.
Winner: ATI Radeon 9700Pro
Loser: nVidia GeForce FX5800U
Winner: nVidia GeForce 6800U
Loser: ATI Radeon X800XT (alsoSM2.0 Part) -->
If by "also" you meant not at all, then you are correct because the X800 family didn't have SM3 but only SM2.1(or 2.b, 2.0+, DX9.b depending on how you name it).
As for your winner/loser list, there's not been a real winner since the GeForce 3/4 for nVidia and the Radeon 9700PRO for ATI.
Every following generation went like this:
nVidia release the new generation product first and lead the market for some time then ATI bring their new generation product to the market and take back the lead. nVidia fight back with a refresh of their current generation to take the lead again and later ATI do the same thing. Then we go back to the first step for the next generation. Sometimes nVidia and ATI switch place for who come first with a refresh of their current line of product but that's it.
So depending at
you look at the market, ATI or nVidia can be the "winner" of that generation of video cards.

DX9 SM3 ROUND 2:
Winner: ATI Radeon X1800
Loser: nVidia GeForce 7800
I think it should be the other way around do the sheer amount of time it took ATI to respond and the fact that it was rather merely competitive rather than blowing away the competition.
Many people purchased the 7800 series during the wait for ATI.
