  1. Nvidia may have devised a strategy to bypass Intel's northbridge blockade: flank 'em from the south.

DigiTimes reports that Nvidia's product might even be $10 to $15 cheaper than Intel's offerings.

    You know, wouldn't it be refreshing if the big tech manufacturers worked together instead of fighting each other? I mean, there's enough money for everyone to go around. Just work together, crank out the best products and split the profits. See - not that hard! ;)

    This crap is getting stupid. I lost a lot of respect for Nvidia when they announced they're going to be disabling their cards if ATI cards are detected.

    Technological socialism ?
    You know thats not how big business rolls :haha:

    @gwailo247
    It's called "Return on Investment" (ROI). You see AMD handing out Eyefinity tech to nVidia, VIA and Intel ?

    You forget the ethics failures that would never allow a model like that to function.

    It's anything but refreshing. When big dogs like these guys start working together, its usually against the consumer, ie price fixing.
    :(

    Clever loophole. Somehow though I don't think it will ever take off though.
     
  10. Nobody ever saw a dog make a fair and deliberate exchange of one bone for another with another dog.
