rabblerouser, that was a fairly informitive post, thanx.
Where did you get your facts from?
Also, I completely agree about the new Ati integrated Intel chipset. Its going to make them barrels of money. Thats where the expected 40% jump in revenue is going to come from I bet.
40% of thier current gross would put them even with NV's gross.
Also, when you consider how much of NV's marketshare in the standalone desktop segment derives from thier low end 400/420/440 boards, how much of that will they lose when people will be able to get dx 8.1 integrated chipset from Ati?
And its going to be probably cheaper than a cheap board add in.
Speed, like with the 5200, may not be the issue. Thats why all the big m-board makers have jumped on this one, its gonna be big I think.
I sincerely regret any and all effects that my comments may or may not have. Any person choosing to read them assumes all legal liabilities.
