Nvidia Pokes Fun at Intel by Using Cartoons

We know that the relationship between Nvidia and Intel these days is slightly adversarial. Of course, companies compete with each other on many levels all the time, and sometimes they aren't above mud slinging.

Nvidia has erected a parody site called IntelsInsides that plays host to a small collection of satirical cartoons.

"[The site] is satirical in nature, and attempts to have a bit of fun with what is quite a serious issue," said Bob Sherbin, Nvidia's head of corporate communications, to ExtremeTech.

Sherbin was referring to Intel's alleged use of incentives for its partners to use Intel chips at the expense of AMD. "The spotlight is on them regarding this issue, and so they are a very obvious target," he said.

Expectantly, Intel isn't pleased. Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy said the representations of Intel were not accurate.

"It's not cute, it's not accurate, it is Nvidia being Nvidia," Mulloy wrote.

Thus far there have only been five cartoons, which have been reproduced here. Let us know what you think!

    Very Funny stuff. About time Nivdia showed a sense of humor.

    Thing i don't get is why Nvidia has these cartoons up, shouldn't AMD be the one with the cartoons?

    Good for Nvidia!
    As the saying goes, the best humor is based on truth.
    I can't believe Intel has been allowed to get away with it's monopolistic business practices for so long.

    So completely unimportant it is a shock anyone would bother... Stick with hard evidence not silly cartoons. Nvidia seems the petulant child with this kind of silly crud....
