Your straw man argument says "everyone" and "required," but antitrust law is more nuanced than that.
It's not required now, and it won't be until Nvidia holds monopoly power. Then it's a problem. So go nuts, Nvidia, but winter may be coming for us all.
For all we know AMD could be playing Judo here and holding on just long enough for NV to take themselves down. All these proprietary platform shenanigans will do them zero favors as a business model when they finally hold 90% of the market.
But I don't think AMD is doing that. I think they're going for a moonshot with their next chips, and if NV counters each one, then it's probably over for the industry.Edited by infranoia - 5/18/15 at 3:18pm
