What i mean by "i had to buy a NVIDIA 3D vision kit.." is that if i was to change to ATi, i would not be able to do 3D anymore, messed myself up there.

All right, conspiracy time. ATI didn't hire him, he was released by nV to be a plant. Now he can sabotage and nV will be victorious. You know, conspiracy theorists really do have a lot of fun.

[citation][nom]dman3k[/nom]It's sad but nVidia will die unless they buy a processor company that will allow them to manufacture CPUs... ARM, anyone?[/citation]
Ah no.

Just because Nvidia "failed"(yet will still make tons of money) with this current generation of desktop GPUs doesn't mean they are going anywhere. They will make money on the 300 series not to mention their other projects.Nvidia may have lost some market share with the ATI cards being agreed upon to be better but they wont go under because of it.

Nvidia are too successful to die, look at VIA, they're still fighting to produce usable and cool products, they used to make the most power efficient CPU's and chipsets ever, now look at them, falling behind even Intel.

Nvidia is the opposite, creating the fastest GPU cores in the world year after year, that's why people buy from them, oh and for the features.

Would be awesome to see PhysX on ATI cards. They should just call it a truce and share technology. That way they can go back to fighting for my $$ on an even field again :]

the day AMD is on par with INTEL is the day i think people should start getting worried, because if successful they are capable of overrunning the market and monopolizing the industry.

I Love AMD products but when that day comes, i can only hope a company can go head to head with its own all in 1 system against them.

I think we all miss the point here.
"Hegde previously served as vice president of CUDA Technical Marketing at Nvidia".

Ageia Technologies wasn't much of a success, nvidia bought them to have a small extra under their belt. Marketing isn't the best department there is, unless the man doing the job (leading the team) knows how to properly advertise a product. I hope that ATi won't let him mess it up, they don't have a huge budget (unlike Nvidia) to spend.

PhysX is already open, ATI just doesn't know how to do it and even went to the point of saying "we have something better." They are hoping this guy can "lead the way" to helping them utilize PhysX.

Intel is a 100 billion dollar company. AMD/ATI is a 5 billion dollar company. I don't think Intel is going to break a sweat for a long time.

300 series was an nVidia-backed OEM rebrandation. It's a POS.

Other projects would be remaking FERMI into a workstation GPU. FERMI is huge, and the margins are slim.

[citation][nom]rhino13[/nom]This guy can't reveal any nVidia company secrets to AMD...[/citation]

Ofcourse he can't, nVidia placed a chip on his brain to stop him from doing such a thing ... pff.

What exactly do you think is stopping him to reveal such secrets using "unofficial channels"?

This guy was in charge of MARKETING cuda, not making it. The only thing he's likely to have up his sleeve is a fancy ad campaign or a rubber chicken.

Damn, good poach.[citation][nom]kelemvor4[/nom]This guy was in charge of MARKETING cuda, not making it. The only thing he's likely to have up his sleeve is a fancy ad campaign or a rubber chicken.[/citation]Right, not only did you not read the entire article, you couldn't finish the first paragraph: "...before that was chief executive officer
and co-founder of AGEIA Technologies Inc."
