I wonder how hard is "Jen Hung Shang Tsung Shao Kahn" or whatever his name, is laughing now. I guess he was to busy to insult INTEL and AMD instead of paying attention to what actually matters in this industry. Hope NVIDIA comes back for our sake because we need healthy competition.
That whole turning-a-cold-shoulder to AMD for acquiring ATI wasn't a smart thing though. Nvidia chipsets have always been superior on AMD platforms and now Nvidia can't make them anymore. Intel won't let them and now AMD has no use for them, they've basically been forced out the game.
We will see the death of their IGP's all together with Intel's next-gen Atom processor, no more need for ION and with Intel entering the mobile phone/tablet market they won't have a market there either.
I completely agree, we need healthy competition and Nvidia is stuck making enthusiast and workstation cards which is very small corner of the market. It's a shame.
