3D News, GL, DirectX "Today, with the coming introduction of the NVIDIA 780i chipset, NVIDIA is looking to make serious changes to what is possible with enthusiast systems by launching a new technology platform. The name of the new standard is ESA - Enthusiast System Architecture. Its goal is to provide information and control to enthusiasts not just for NVIDIA motherboards and video cards, but to provide that information and control for many other components in an ESA-enabled system. The actual protocol is OS independent. This is very important for the future of ESA, as it will eventually allow ESA to operate with any platform."

Grow up. Sorry if I hit a nerve that someone either loves nVidia or works for them.

I asked how the kernel teams from respective operating systems, outside of Windows views this development and you gave me nothing.

We know USB is open. Intel invented it.

With systems being designed to be more conservative on power consumption this architecture shows how one can control this and measure heat transfer conditions inside a case, etc.

This is great for design engineers.

What does this have to do with End Consumers?
