nVidia buys out ULi - Page 2

post #11 of 17
....i seem to remember 3dfx (even though they made video cards instead of chipsets)

totally off topic, but i can remember the FIRST time i opened up a 3dfx card to smell it....the greatest smell of all time at that particular instance.

ULI was only a temporary solution until ATI could finish work on its new Southbridge. ATI will have it out before any action is taken.

And I think we all know what happens to companies that get bought by nVidia.

ULI aided ati's crossfire chipset with theyr own southbridge, when the prototypes were in deep ****, they have better then ok chipsets, cant wait for em to roll out into the big scene. But i suppose that now they wont. Btw why's invidia being so soft...? Or are they enjoying having ati on a leash lol? Its like strangling a man but not quite tightening the noose tight enough for him to asphyxiate....Wow not so soft huh.... My cat caught and ate a mouse so bring them badgers on. Pickaxes are no match against the 400w powersupply im gona arm my cat with Heck maybe ill even put a mini gattler on his back.... Lets c whos furry then, eh? w00tzorz nvidia pwns haha ATi you is teh suck, loserz.

Yes Bring VIA from hell to the heavens

This isn't going to change anything, i remember when the forums were full of "zomg ati is the sux cuz nvidia haz sli" and "*** ati pwnz cuz they can overclock better" and other such nonsence. but nothing has changed, both are still making new products, and neather are "in big trouble"
