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.

Nvidia shoots their own feet

They depend only on Intel, as AMD now has their own GPUs and chipsets. Intel is going to replace them by Larrabee, so they must be a lot afraid of it.

Instead avoiding those stupid things to being said, they keep them spread shit. Nvidia can become a total loser in the GPU world if Intel gets really strong in this front and AMD does another surprising strategic movements that improves their market situation in a global way.

Nvidia should make their bosses shut up and use their brains to think something really useful, like investing or buying some revolutionary technology that saves them from dying. Think about buying VIA and merging it with their engineering team to produce x86 CPUs or whatever.

I only hope Nvidia finds their own way, start competing instead trying to change the market themselves and enter into the FOSS world like AMD and Intel and their VIA friends are doing.

So, let me see if I get it correctly.

intel had massive profit drops, and AMD is bleeding money left and right. Nvidia has managed to avoid both situations. So your advice to them is to: buy a company like VIA who is about to go the way of the dodo?

Seriously?
