AMD Makes Fun of Nvidia Fermi's Hotness

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 92 comments

Just a simple misunderstanding.

Nvidia's faced its share of challenges this year but it has finally a DirectX 11 product on the shelves and now its Fermi offering is maturing well. In fact, the GeForce GTX 460 is one of our favorite GPUs in the segment.

AMD, however, as the fierce competitor that it is, isn't shy about poking fun at Nvidia for its Fermi woes – especially when it comes to power draw and heat production.

Check the video below to see AMD's pot shot at Nvidia.

    In my opinion a bit low. But certainly this will be funny to those who know what they're talking about..... :) 

    "I bet we're gonna see something green."
    &
    "Fermi again. It's the third time this week."

    Are the best lines. OMG! High power draw! Blazing temps! It's a nucula..... Oh it's Fermi. :D

    I think the GTX 460 remedied that power issue a bit. Good price/performance ratio as well.

    I cannot exactly defend Nvidia since Fermi GF100 came out several months late and is considerably more inefficient.

    I love it! =D AMD/ATI all the way...

    I was tempted on getting NVIDIA, just so I can make some marshmallows while playing Crysis Warhead

    Anyone notice that as the SWAT Team is raiding the Gaming Room that the Monitor is showing the Raid in progress as it's happening? :D

    I doubt Nvidia will strike back, they dont have much to pick on with ATI this round. All they can do is brag they have the fastest cards and better tess. performance. Maybe they can make fun of the size of the ATI cards.

    AMD must be worried! If the past is any indication, these "all in good fun" strategies are usually pulled out as a last resort. I got a GTX460 and it's neither hot, slow or expensive - so...I guess AMD's petty attempt at "fun" is a little out of touch with reality.

    This is kind of meh, I guess it would have been more fun half a year ago, but now with the GTX 460 kicking butt, especially in SLI.. is that maybe why
    AMD feels the need to draw attention to the first gen of the 400 series?
