(Probably tress fx which has had a few threads so far.)

hmmm that actually sounds better for every one in the long run since the way Physx is at the moment its just limiting its adoption by hardware locking out a lot of the market.

SLI Voodoo 2 - > GeForce4 MX 420 -> GF 6600GT -> GF 6800GT -> GF 8800Ultra -> AMD 4870 -> AMD 4890 -> CF AMD 5820 -> CF AMD 6850 -> CF AMD 7970 -> SLI GF 680 -> SLI GF 780 -> CF AMD 290X -> GF 980ti -> SLI GF 980ti -> GF 1080ti

Before the rapid rise of PayPal, eBay bought a payment transfer service company called Billpoint in order to make business transactions more convenient. Since eBay saw no need to expand their service beyond eBay, PayPal was free to dominate all other online business transaction marketshare.

Shortly before eBay bought PayPal, at least millions of their customers were using PayPal. Under 100,000 were using eBay's Billpoint service.


EDIT: For those who didn't get it, usually the system that's exposed to a larger market is eventually going to win through positive feedback, even if the closed system is slightly better.

Maybe not such a smart bet by Nvidia as the tablet market grows, it becomes commoditized (sp?) and enables lower and lower margins as time goes by. Whereas console prices are fairly predictable throughout there lifetimes.

For AMD, I'm pretty sure it has to do a lot with the company staying afloat for the next few years and ensuring stockholder confidence.

For the two other guys, It keeps them out of the bullseye of the government as possible market monopolies.

as if the US government still breaks up monopolies any more

Or that they have much larger lawyer and lobbyist armies than previous monopolies had.
