Nvidia Uses Cartoon to Tease Intel Larrabee Delay

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 55 comments

Nvidia pokes at Intel's Insides.

When it came to reactions surrounding Intel's decision to effectively cancel the release of its first version of Larrabee, Nvidia was a company of few words.

Much to your dismay, all Nvidia could muster up as a response was, "The fact that a company with Intel's technical prowess and financial resources has struggled so hard to succeed with parallel computing shows just how exceptionally difficult a challenge this is," said by Victor Martinez, a spokesman for Nvidia.

Those of you hoping for more fightin' words will hopefully find a thousand more in the latest Intel's Insides cartoon from Nvidia.

    Just when I was thinking they were getting soft. (Their initial response to the Larrabee delay was almost professional).

    Good to see the green team hasn't changed.

    thackstonnsYour an idiot, the 4870 was an Nvidia killer when it came out.


    Then you must be a bigger idiot. One, for calling someone else an idiot and two, for apparently not reading his post and/or taking his comment out of context. He said "Truly." At the time, it barely beat the GTX 280...



    Not to mention they leapfrog each other constantly. I have to agree...the 4870 was hardly a killer. It was marginally better at best.

    mlopinto2k1You know, ATI might have a faster card at the moment but that sure as hell doesn't mean they are SLAUGHTERING NVIDIA. Where does this crap come from? Anyway, cartoon is pretty witty. Also, I am officially NOT a fan boy of any kind. Well, maybe Photoshop but that's a different ballpark.




    WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN........get out from under you rock man, ATI went king, all you can do is sit and wait to see what NVIDIA is doin all this time.

    Bwa ha ha. Funny :D . Oh well. Intel really needs to release Larabee as a developer product for now. If they can get developers to write cool software for it, then they can hope to make it relevant and perhaps go from there to a consumer product. If developers give it a pass, then it's pretty doomed.

    Amd is KING right now. I previously had a 8800 and then upgrade to the HD5870. Despite the 8800 having dx11 support, the HD5870 just SLAUGHTERS the 8800. It's not even remotly close. Amd is a king. But most importantly Amd got their drivers figured out which in the past was so annoying.

    See nvidia can make as much PR propaganda as they wish but when it comes to actually making a card they have some catching up todo

    ram1009Seams to me Nvidia is selling plenty of cards based upon the quality of their drivers vs ATI's if nothing else. ATI may have the fastest cards but what percentage of buyers actually can afford them. If you aim only slightly lower like most of us Nvidia is more than competitive except for DX11. ATI has always had buggy drivers and still does according to the reviews I read.



    ATI's video cards are quite cheap nowadays. Have you seen the prices drop on these things lately?

    Stupid of NVidia to do this, it's like tempting fate. Everyone should know not to tempt the bear. Just cause it looks slow and cuddly doesn't mean it can't rip your face off the moment it gets within reach.

    Nvidia has a long and succesfull past in GPU market, so it will be back... or I really hope so. A lot is up to their goal. Is it fast graphic or powerfull Seti-calculator...

    "the HD5870 just SLAUGHTERS the 8800."

    Care to guess which one was released 2 generations after the other?

    ptroen(...) Despite the 8800 having dx11 support, the HD5870 just SLAUGHTERS the 8800. (...)



    The sentence above doesn't make sense. The 8800 does NOT have DX11 support. It doesn't even have DX10.1 support, just DX10. So there is no "despite".
