Honestly I was hoping Intel would have their Larrabee out (I even applied for a marketing job for that project a year or two ago - back when it was a go).
The funny thing about all this is that I do not see why people get so damned worked up. It is just hardware. There are better things to get pissed about. This is how I see it and I am more involved in this industry than most if not all of you. Perspective.
if you want to bitch about a crooked CEO . . .or former . . .
A prototype is still a working sample no matter what,even if it isn't operating at whatever the final specifications that the retail cards would have been working at....That card wasn't working in any shape or form and didn't even have a Fermi GPU in it to begin with,and Nvidia's CEO never said it was a mockup of what fermi will look like....He simply stated this was fermi right here,which is a big difference.
