And one single group of engineers at NVIDIA designed both the NV2A and NV30?
I'd guess there was at least some
input from other engineers, perhaps even different design teams worked on the two chips.
Again, the bottom line is that the ArtX group designed a console and PC chip, both came out fine, and on time. The XBOX is not an "excuse" for NVIDIA's delays; it's simply one cause of the delays... one which doesn't affect everyone.
