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.

This man is so wrong in thinking netbooks are some sort of cheap standard PC. For sure, netbooks aren't bought because people can't afford an extra $100. If you don't believe this, look at other low-priced offers like Wal-Mart PCs.

Netbook buyers won't value support for the big players in the software industry either. Likely the opposite is true, people get fully supported Linux with all it's free applications, and value that.

The good thing is, his guys obviously work on very power-efficient chips anyways. This will be good for all of us.
