OK, Sapphire is a company that sells ATi cards. They buy the cards from ATi, then sell them to customers to make a profit. Radeon is juat a brand name. Kind of like how you have a Spalding NBA basketball or a Samsung SynMaster monitor. The SyncMaster is the brand name while Samsung is the company. Get it?

Ohhh, that makes more sense now. When you included that Sapphire in there with the other companies, it became clear. Sapphire is a company that makes ATI RADEON and FireGL cards. Plus, ATI also make their own line of cards too. Nvidia always have other companies make it for them.
