Nvidia has been bribing everyone for a long time, so I'm not surprised. Plus, a bunch of Execs leaving within a month is quite suspicious.

This is part of business: stealing your competition's best talent. Then again, I feel that it's just a better idea to make something new than to copy someone else's work.

I'm not going to say which company is right here. If nVidia stole, then yes, they are bad guys. If they didn't, then AMD is falsely accusing

Why would Nvidia do such a stupid obvious thing ? i don't get it, they got their own and a bit better reputation, why would they screw it up ?!! and i don't think that AMD has done something that Nvida can't do so Nvidia stole it ?!! dunno...

GeRadeon sounds better.

nvidia's good reputation in itself is a funny joke.

I consider AMD's video cards highly successful.

You've gotta admit, AMD's new Catalyst drivers are pretty awesome compared to what Nvidia's offering. Maybe they wanted their driver technology. I also read that AMD's whole source code tree was stolen as well.

[citation][nom]kcorp2003[/nom]this will be interesting. I would expect Nvidia to say, we didn't take anything.[/citation]
Its quite obvious Nvidia didnt do anything. These were employees of AMD after all.

[citation][nom]JonnyDough[/nom]The chip industry is relatively new. Patents last 50 years. How is it that the technologies of all these mega corps share so much in common? Thievery I say![/citation]

I dare you to copy Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture and contract Global Foundries to build it.

Let's see how you explain your actions.

They could've bribed the employees to leave AMD and join them.

The designs are just so different. I mean Nvidia has been going more slower cores(shaders) as of late(vs less cores/higher clock per core), but it is hard to argue with the results both companies are getting.

Good GPCPU performance??
(I'm not a fanboy for any side, but the truth is, 7000 series GPCPU is impressive)

Maybe running better at higher resolutions? Especially considering 2k/4k are right at our doorstep.

There's no such thing as excess information about your competitor's products...
 
[citation][nom]NightLight[/nom]oh amd, don't do it the apple way...[/citation]



What does the apple way have to do with this?
AMD employees left to Nvidia (which is likely okay) but they stole trade secrets and other IP from AMD and took it with them to Nvidia. The employess have taken something that AMD has not shred with the public.
We do not know yet if Nvidia knows or if they used it
In samsung vs apple, samsung allegeldy took patented stuff and copied it in their products. The Apple IP is out in the public (patent filing) for viewing.

It would be if Samsung bribed an Apple employee to copy all the ideas and data of the Ipad before apple even releases it or makes it. (Ofc this only applies if Nvidia itself is involved)
