3D News, GL, DirectX Currently, NVIDIA is really missing out on the netbook market, which is dominated by all-Intel platform designs. NVIDIA has finally woken up to this reality, and the outspoken cofounder, president, and CEO of NVIDIA, Jen-Hsun Huang, has launched an all-out campaign to promote his company's Ion platform - and he isn't shy of flinging some poo to Intel and netbooks in general.

Here's hoping for ATI

Previous to my last upgrade, my machines where all built with ATI All In Wonder boards. With the last upgrade, nVidia had the 8800 GPU and better cross platform device support so I went nVidia for the first time ever.

I hope AMD has the better GPU and support when it comes time for my next upgrade. With AMD providing full driver interface documentation, I'm optimistic. I'd prefer to give my money to a company that competes based on products not; "WAAAA.. We missed the boat.. everybody on it turn around and come back!"

I think suggesting that people buy netbook class machines to play blockbuster video game titles demonstraites an emberassing lack of understanding on nVidia's part.

Oh, and Mr. MBA CEO; listing predatory monopolistic software companies and high end gaming houses reflects only the "good 'ol boy's club" not the greater (in both senses of the word) software industry. I hope your shareholders are happy with your demonstration else it's going to be the curb when they see dividends slide and vote you off the island.
