Yeah these new ATI cards seem to have a really good price point. Hopefully the price/performance of these will bring Nvidia back to Earth.

I'm willing to bet Nvidia cant drop their prices much more than they already have. the yields on these GTX280s aren't too good from what I hear.

I don't think Nvidia realizes the world of hurt ATI is about to put them in, in return for the past 2 years of torment

I am curious to see the reactions of all the people that said buying ATI was the worst thing for AMD to do. It may take a little while for it to fully pay off, but things are starting to look good.

Is there anyone who thinks the ATI purchase was good in hindsight?

Well, it seems to be the only thing that has potential to sell really well for them. I suppose it is hard to say as the may have used the money spent on ATI in other ways to create revenue.

Did AMD not buy ATI for several times what they were really worth and they made the purchase on debt?

AMD purchasing ATI before the launch of Core 2 would of been smart. Not after it.

I am not sure. I think it was in 2006 and I wasn't really into the PC scene then. (late bloomer, lol) In the end, though, if these new generation of cards are as good and as cheap as projected, this could be the windfall AMD needs.

I'm not 100% sure this sentence makes proper English sense Pauldovi. could you edit that a bit?


Personally, I view Nvidia like a Ferrari, and AMD/ATI as a good old Buick. Nvidia Has a good, speedy business, with great acceleration, but if a ferrari hits a rock bigger than a baseball going 200mph, they're ****ing dead. AMD/ATI on the other hand takes a while to accelerate, they've got ****ty handling, and they look like anus driving along down the road, But as soon as that AMD Buick gets going, its not stopping for ****.

Can you give of examples of Intel dying?

Because all I ever see are screen shots of 6Ghz+ Intel Quad Cores and expectations that Intel quad cores do 3.6Ghz on air.
