The x86 bashing is getting old, nVidia. Look, if nVidia hates desktop PCs so much, then they can go to hell. I'll buy AMD graphics cards from here on out.

Well, nVidia didn't leave themselves much choice.

They absolutely cannot compete against x86 using x86. Intel owns x86 and even with their best effords nVidia likely wouldn't be able to design an effectively competitive chip to compete with Intel and AMD, without sacrificing elsewhere- they just aren't a big enough company.

The portable electronics market, though quite large now, was much smaller when they got involved, and that likely is going to pay off big time for them.

Honestly, I think the days of nVidia developing leading end gaming GPUs is coming to an end. Sure, x86 will survive but it's going to shrink, being replaced with much smaller, more portable electronics.

Gaming rigs will still be around and I think in some way nVidia will still offer gaming GPUs, but it'd not surprise me if as time progresses the gaming GPUs loose importance to nVidia. I could easily see in this area nVidia loosing market share and AMD gaining it.

Also, I think Intel is likely going to be loosing market share in the coming years. Smaller, more portable electronics is where it's at. Intel isn't quite setup of that... yet. They have the x86 muscle but lack the GPU power to compete. AMD also has the x86 muscle *and* the GPU power to compete. It'll be easier for AMD to survive in this climate than Intel.

In short, I think the landscape is going to change *drastically* in the coming years. Companies that we counted as gone are going to suddenly dominate while the ones we perceived and being nearly invincible will have an up-hill battle.

All imo, of course.

Too bad they couldn't demo HD video chatting over Skype on tablets like they thought they were going to.

Redeemed, I think you've pretty much got it (also my own opinion of course).

"The ARM Processor is the most important ISA".

Sheesh. I wouldn't have dreamed the possibility of a statement like that a week ago.

It's statements like this that makes me believe personal computing is, for lack of a better word, evolving. The landscape is changing drastically. The digital environment 10 years from now is going to look nothing like it does today.

Heck, Go back 10 years. The PC was largely still the same in form and function. Sure, not nearly as powerful- but you had a tower, a seperate monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse.

Go back another 10 years, still much more of the same. How long do we think this can remain the norm? Honestly, I'm astonished at how many of those all-in-one touch screen computers being sold in retail. I think for many that is likely what will replace the PC so to speak.

Imagine having your PC being integrated into your wall, and it's touch screen. Need to google directions? No problem, could easily have a full KB beneath it that'd protrude when needed and retract when not. Laptops will probably shrink and merge with netbooks- use those for e-mails, resumes, etc. PDAs and smartphones for nearly everything else.

And back to that computer in the wall? Likely wont need tons of storage ans purchasing movies and such is going to change. I can see two types of services at least- one entirely cloud computing baed where you buy a movie and it's saved in Cyberspace for you- watch it whenever you want without needed large storage capacity on your computer.

The alternative would be likely for people such as me living in areas without fast enough broadband connections- localized storage. It's cheaper for me to throw together a media server with terrabytes upon terrabytes of storage than it'd be to get broadband comparable to what you'd have in the city. Thus I buy a movie and DL it in my localized storage- watch when ever I want.

It's only a matter of time, imo. I'll always use dedicated computers with localized storage, even in the days of cloud computing- simply cause it's a hobby. But I do believe that society as a whole is heading that way.
