There's nothing new about GPU architectures, but here's the short recap. GPU revenues are understandably up since last year:
Market share has gone up as well:
If you want to look at console + PC market share, AMD's GPUs look very good thanks to the Wii and Xbox 360, but this is stretching it a bit:
