Nvidia's Cartoons Continue to Poke Fun at Intel

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 68 comments

Nvidia's way past diplomacy now.

Nvidia's not afraid to poke at its competitors. Earlier this week, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that the FTC lawsuit against Intel is one that "can completely transform the computer industry."

"I can now imagine the day when Intel can no longer block consumers from enjoying our creation and experience computing in a way we know is possible," he wrote a memo.

Not content to leave it at just that, Nvidia continues to poke at Intel on its Intel's Insides cartoon site. Nvidia said that its site is just satire, but it certainly doesn't pull any punches. Here are the latest few on the bumps that Intel has encountered regarded alleged anticompetitive activity.

    For the time it took to come up with all these negative cartoons, you'd think they could figure out a DirectX 11 card by now...

    Marcus,

    Man I'm not trying to be a jerk. But I honestly have a difficult time reading things that have mistakes like this. I mean literally, I have to read the sentence a second time to make sure I'm even reading it correctly.

    ^ This one is just confusing to read at first...

    Anyhow, flame on. I expect I'll likely get some thumbs down for this one. But in such a tiny article, it's hard to deal with the ratio of errors.

    Maybe they could take some of that cartoon time and make some good bios updates for their older chipsets to make the computer stable, such as the 790i.

    Intel should just make a cartoon depicting all the employees in Nvidia's (clearly labeled somewhere) R&D division making cartoons with a big sign on the door saying "Fermi test lab."

    Nvidia's graphics will start to look at these cartoons if they don't focus on ATI and instead churning out these cartoons faster than The New Yorker.

    Then Nvidia would come back with a cartoon about Larrabee.

    And then the world would realize Intel is primarily an x86 CPU company and Nvidia is primarily a cartoon company.

    Well if you can't actually produce a new GPU, draw cartoons. :)

    Would you care to restate that with understandable grammar?

    The one artist it takes to produce these cartoons OBVIOUSLY cripples the entire research and development department, right?

    This type of stuff use to be funny from Nvidia. Remember when they showed the list of all the companies they had purchased, including 3dfx. Now it's just getting old.

    I'll do the honors, it was a fun little challenge to decipher it.

    Translation:

    "If Nvidia doesn't start to focus more on the fact that ATi is quickly surpassing them in the market, they will fall even further behind, making their graphics comparable to those of the cartoons on this page when compared with the new standards of quality that ATi will no doubt establish with the computer world if it continues at the pace it has risen to."
