ATI burns Nvidia.. here we go again.
« on: July 26, 2006, 03:52:13 pm »
Official Statement from ATI

Quote
Nvidia has seen the writing on the wall, and doesn't like what it's saying.... Nvidia's words are bravado, designed to confuse the market while the company tries to find a way to compete now that it's standing alone.

But personally, I think that's just ATI trying to talk trashm because Nvidia has been dominating recently in the gaming market.

I think ATI are just responding to to Nvidia remarks about how "ATI is giving up" are something along those lines. I don't know who's cards better or who's making mo'money but I do know that my computer can't run any of there new cards.
I need a new tag.

ATi won the market with the X1xxx series, and nVidia is trying to catch up right now.

ATi+AMD = Win
Nvidia + 0 = Loser.

Better cards, maybe, but nVidia has more people using their cards, so it's not exactly a win for ATi.

What makes you say that? You cant just spout things without any evidence.

Lets face it, no company is best forever, anyone remember the 3dfx voodoo series that ruled all things 3d... until nvidea crashed the party with the geforce series (and then bought 3dfx just for laughs), it happened because at the end of the day gamers look at the specs, not the name... no one is foolish enough to continue with the same brand just because it used to be best.

I am an Nvidea user, and have been since the GeForce2, but if ATI and AMD do good things i wont think twice about jumping ship... and my guess is, nor will most gamers. lets wait and see what happens, in a years time this board may be full of gamers saying how they will use ATI forever because noone else can match them... who knows?

(I am also an AMD64 user so I am quietly hopefull)

Ok, the merger of AMD and ATI will not allow ATI to make better graphics cards.

They are merely going to share fabs and I don't see how the CPU engineers will help making GPU's (at least not to an extent where it's going to be significantly better). And Nvidia do have better gaming stuff, although I do admit that ATI is kinda on the upperhand with the mobile market. Nonetheless, the benefits of AMD and ATI merging together will not affect their status within their own respective industries, but rather, they can work more efficient in terms of production and maybe integrating ATI chipsets or graphics cards with the AMD CPU's. It will allow both companies have a little bit of leverage compared against Intel and Nvidia.

But in the long run, it's the products they make that determines their success, and Intel and Nvidia have the upperhand right now.
