More about nvidia parts
  1. LMAO, Love it!
  2. That would go some way to explaining why those cards are useless for gaming. :lol:
  3. This just in, Fermi is actually an ATI based technology :O :O lol
  4. ATI usually gets the jump on GDDR, as they work with the ram makers, but I had no idea heheh
  5. MSI probably had the chips in inventory when they were making the card so just used them instead of buying new stock - Would love to hear the phone call they got about that one when Nvidia saw the photo !!
  6. Nice xD!

    But yeah, it's actually the 3rd parties call on what chips to use for each part/section of the whole PCB on each individual card design.

    Cheers!

    Expect up coming drivers to prevent cards with ATi parts to stop being supported ;)

    Or people with GT210's reporting grey screen and vertical line issue's.

    LMFAO !! :D
  10. Thats not even remotely possible but why do people care so much. Those memory chips are probably ATI branded Samsung chips anyway.

    Yes he knows that is not possible it was sarcasm - (Referring to the newer drivers for Nvidia that check for an ATI video card and disable Physx on the Nvidia card if there is also an ATI card installed in the system ! - so you have to get hacked drivers in order to use an Nvidia card as your physx card if using ATI.)
