[INQ]Nvidia "opens can of whoop-ass" on itself - Page 3

post #21 of 43
this is not biased,i agree with them in every point.
nvidia made this to itself by going the greedy and arrogant way,they kept sending wave after wave of renamed(and overpriced) g92 cards and there was bound to be repercusions.
i saw this coming MONTHS away from the release of the HD 4k series.

I am confused... What is with all this nVidia getting owned? They still have the fastest cards on the market. Am I missing something? I understand the price may be different but this is overclock.net not pricegrabber. All I care about is performance not cost, I will worry about what I can afford later. Who has the fastest card, last time I checked it was the GTX280.

The 4870 nearly reaches the GTX 280 in many benchmarks, and the 4870x2 is coming out in late July, which will far surpass it.

Quite right, but they do look to be heading into a a period of market share loss. Nvidia still controls the desktop graphics market, but ATi will have made significant gains by the time Nvidia is able to compete again at the lower end, which is where most of the sales will be.

They may have sent the g92's for the same reason that ATi released the 2900XT's, because what they really wanted to release just wasn't ready yet and they needed SOMETHING to sell, but in Nvidia's case they had a GOOD design to work with, so good that they are still selling them to try to be rid of the left-overs(9800GTX+) and the design is not lagging all that far behind in benchmarks.

That said, the 4850 is the new 8800GT.

ROFL nvidia isn't going anywhere! They currently are sitting on 2 billion dollars ... compared to AMD's ~7 billion dollar debt!

Maybe it's biased, but it's all true. Read the article and see says what we all already know.
I think the above posters who complained about being biased and stuff are biased () against the Inq.
