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.

Love to see an anonymous poster in an obscure website give condescendig advice a guy who built a multibillion tech company.

Since nvidia has atom chipsets, and the tegra has everything and the kitchen sink (including an arm process) on a small package-on-package form factor... I would think twice about saying things like "nvidia has been outflanked"

The fact that he created a company that creates GPU's does not mean he knows anything about netbooks or other markets. It's pretty obvious that he doesn't or at least is pretending not to.

It still doesn't make him right. He built a graphics hardware company but he now finds himself in unfamiliar territory and is reverting to type because he is somewhere new that threatens his company.

Clearly, to say that Atom is going to hurt the software and then in the same interview praise the Atom platform if it is coupled with one of his company's GPUs is insane.

It really doesn't matter. Intel and AMD have control over their platforms and can have as many bites of the cherry as they like. nvidia can't. The best they can hope to be at the end of all this is a chipset maker for AMD or Intel.
