The Darkside hate is strong here. I posted from the perspective of Nvidia the company, not Nvidia the niche gfx card maker who is supposed to cater forever just to us and only us for discreet Gfx. I'm glad they are branching out. They need to do something with all the $ they got from us.
Others are extremely focused on this specific product and its "certainty for absolute failure".
I'm not. It's exactly what it is, their first direct self named foray into the gaming machine world.
To the Doomsayers, how many times had Sony failed on a product or two before they got it right? Yeah... and Microsoft, GE, and countless others. There's an endless list. Most don't get a home run the first time at bat. You need a couple strikeouts and experience.... Calm down.... you know who you are
I'm focused on, and questioning what is Nvidia's longer term goals with Gaming / Consoles etc...
I/OS doesn't run x86 and they made billions. Again I'm taking the corporate view as that's what I'm most familiar with. Companies do look at the long view in their decisions as well as shorter term deliverables. I don't believe Nvidia is planning for this to be some one time shot initiative with a "it will always be just as-is mentality." I choose to believe they are smarter than the avg bear and will have a roadmap...whoah what's that... this is all taken with a grain, as it's new from them, if it doesnt work out, ok, no one is going to die.
Some seem to rant like it's a personal insult. "How Dare Nvidia do this".Edited by Ghoxt - 5/15/13 at 11:17am
