[OCN] Nvidia Turning Friends Into Enemies?

Post by Maxime Rousseau

Everybody's in the fight for GP-GPUs... and it makes me question Nvidia's ability to survive in such a market, specially when all it's CPU producing friends are openly declaring war.

Nvidia is acting weird lately. Apart from keeping the bar high in the GPU sector, Nvidia seems to be wanting to take over something else, the CPU sector. I'm a bit confused as if they want to do so using CUDA and GPU-powered applications to entirely eradicate the need for a powerful CPU and build crappy replacements of their own, or just trying to beat Intel at their own game, plain and simple, by producing super high end chips.

I might be totally wrong, but in the case that this "can of whoop ass" turns out to be a flop, this may very well be the end of Nvidia as we know it......
