Wow... Visiontek must be pist at Nvidia. That is BOLD!


www.visiontek.com

At the end of that, theres a sound of a dustbuster! Damn. Wasent Visiontek like Nvidia's # 1 lead supplier or is that the past now?

That is unreal though.

Heh .... they shouldn't let it end with a screen that says:

"Xtasy

powered by ATi

BLOWS"


I know that the "blows" is part of a sentence but taken alone like that it looks bad.

Well if Gainward can live up to half their PR specs, they can point and laugh at that Flash animation...but I do think the cooling that came with the review cards is crappy.

um....guys.

Visiontek went out of business and was bought by Hartford computers or some other company with a very similar name. many of the former Visiontek people have started a new company.

Ok, that was by far and away the BEST nVidia joke I've heard this week!

You know, I'd find the whole VisionTek thing a lot funnier if they actually had ATI products out (since they've been making fun of nvidia since the FX launch, R300 was around for 3 months before that, and they STILL have not even announced a product...) :bleh:

Just seems like a stupid PR-only effort.

Maybe they are makeing cards for other companys not selling like the ones called "POWERED BY ATI" :rolleyes:

Or maybe they are just waiting for R350 release :rolleyes: :p

ATI has always ****ed me over with their graphics cards....I'm glad to see it's changing. I've never had problems with an Nvidia card, not to mention they have great Linux support.
